Tips for scanning or preparing your files for uploading

Online art communities all have different requirements for uploading files to their websites. We recommend saving your drawings using the following settings to ensure they are compatible with as many websites as possible.
- JPG files are the most commonly accepted format, we recommend using this format
- Resolutions of at least 1 megapixel will ensure good quality (1024 x 768 pixels) in either portrait or landscape format (or square)
- If scanning in a letter or A4 size piece of paper, scan at 150 DPI. For smaller size paper use 300 DPI.
For drawings to be considered for our book, they should be acceptable quality. The settings above are a good guide.
