Re: Earth Strikes Back


I think you asked about subbing a large design that people can see more clearly?
Open your print-ready-file, re-save it as a jpeg at 580X580 pixels (don't save over your original!), and sub that as your composition. Since you do have to include the shirt for placement, before you sub, take the file you already have with the design on the shirt, trim away any excess pixels around the shirt, then copy/paste that over your composition. Move it around and re-size until it's the way you want people to see it (example: here ).
For the thumbnail, again using the original file, pick an area that reallygives people the idea that there's more interesting stuff to look at. Crop down to just that area in a square (all sides equal) and resave as a jpeg again. Resize to 240X240 and that's your detail.
I'm sure others have other ways of doing this, too, but this works for me...

Re: Earth Strikes Back


I'm more than a little unclear on what's going on here. It looks like a tree is being attacked by eggs with trees coming out of them?

Also, it's hard to tell because the shirt image looks a little stretched out, but you may have strayed outside the printable area.
