What size document?
« : Февраль 05, 2008, 07:41:26 pm »
How do you decide what size document to start with? I tend to go for A3 (297x420mm) plus 3mm bleed all round (303x426mm) for most of my illustrations or 350x350mm for square illustrations.

The reason I have chosen this size is because it gives a file size just over 48m uncompressed which is what Alamy require.

How does everyone else approach it?

I always go with a A4, no bleed crops, RGB color workspace.

p.s.: Btw, how's Alamy going with your work? I opened an account there but never uploaded s**t (well, actually I did try uploading 400 pics, but only around 30 got through because of the stupid uncompressed nonsense limitations). Never tried resizing my work just for Alamy. Is it worth it?

I do my work at the size I do so I don't have to resize it for Alamy...and it covers all of the largest sizes in the other sites.

I havent had a sale at Alamy for a month or so but when you do get sales they are worth it. I have made as much there in the past 6 months as I have in the last year at Canstock, Crestock, Fotolia, Big Stock and 123RF combined!

Vectors  only in CMYK I do. It's easy convert to RGB (for webdesigners) But converting to cmyk when you have much gradients it's not easy.

Bitmaps related to vector designs - about 7000 x 4500 px - RGB - only IS want smaller bitmaps (in vector case)

I got a tip from Ron Chapple/ Iofoto one day that square format is beneficial because it takes up the maximum space for a thumbnail. Since then I try to make all my jpg illustration when possible in square format and the sales prove him right ;-) SY
