Hello all again, i have been absent from wetcanvas quiet a bit but as you can see I have been busy. Digital Art for me has been a blast so far unfortunately some of my best works are waay to big to be uploaded, but I'll find away around that in the near future.

Resample the large files at a muh higher resolution while adjusting the number of pixels down. 800x800pixels at 300 DPI I find works for my large images while keeping them looking good. Save the resampled version as a different name, I tend to add -p after the name to signify that I use it in posts. Hope that works for ya!

Also, these look awesome. Very vibrant, I am not very good at using extreme vibrancy like this, I tend to use more muted colors more often with just a bit of vibrant color here or there to help draw attention.

Delofash ty very much for your advice :)

Oddly my days are spent trying to tone down the colors at times, I don't want my viewers to walk away know a visit to the eye doctor is imminent lol, but I just can't help myself at times as I intensify my colors to give off a happy vibe.....im still looking for ways to paint and give the viewers some sort of happiness.

Very nice and bold colors. You can download your painting. eAsy. Just put reolution at 72, and pixels no more than 800x800. When you resize you canvas, make sure you save as small . Thar way you won't lose you larger size

Thank you both Lucy and Lavender for the suggestion and positive comments.

My little tip, when I save pictures for web I add the image pixel size to the file name. So it might be something like landscape800x640.jpg. Makes it easy to find the image you want when posting.

Ahh ok ty lavender. Btw I have a slight off topic question that's bothering me, since now I can increase/decrease the size of my paintings how or what type of effect would that have on printing? As of now im cautiously printing at small sizes.

Some one else might be able to give better answers on that. I usually start by sizing the image in inches so that it's the print size I want and setting the resolution to 300. I think at that resolution you can print quite a bit larger without a problem, and smaller too.

Here's a Caravaggio study I just had to do, not perfect but it was worth the try and the fun making it was awesome.
