Spoiler Warning! If you're a One Piece fan and you aren't up to date on the series and don't want some minor spoilers, avert your eyes.

Anywho, after much finaglling with my computer and pretty much everything right now, I got a workin version of Photoshop(though just barely) and finally got a comic put out. This is kinda a what-if Dream Match Scenario for me and a lot of One Piece fans. Luffy getting his revenge on Admiral Akainu and beatin him to a friggin pulp. I'm particularly pleased with how this first page came out, but for now I still have a lot of work to catch up on @.@


Edit: Yeah, sorry guys, I keep trying different configurations to lower the original size and improve the quality but nothing works, so you may just have to live with the slight choppiness this issue. Very sorry.

use irfan view and save it as a high quality jpeg, it doesn't come out so grainy and the file is compressed, basically it's the same as a png.

@AlexAwesome: Saving it as a PNG made it far too big, the only reason it's choppy is due too imageshack optimizing it so I could actually post it, before hand it was picture perfect, JPEG or not(cuz another nice thing about photoshop is maximum quality JPEGs.)

and frankly, just due to how much is going on, JPEG is actually the better file format. It's just more-so the problems I'm having with my computer right now.

@Tex: is it just or something?

Reply Tex, December 12th, 2011, 2:03 pm

dunno, google it.

Just host images externally.
It doesn't hurt anybody.

@AlexAwesome: I did, it didn't really help any.

@CaptureTheFlag: I do, thank you very much, doesn't mean I don't have to put it through somewhere to lower the file size :/

if the kb size is too big... dont save as jpeg... just put it on image shack.

but this looks ineresting. i dont read/watch one piece so spoilers dont effect me anyways.

@Ultimate the Hedgehog: JPEG made it smaller in the first place =-= and imageshack is why it's a little choppy.

Reply OnceTMaster, December 12th, 2011, 6:44 pm

@AlexAwesome: JPEG gets too much of a bad rap xD I save in JPEG all the time and my pages are substantially larger.

If you're hosting externally then file size shouldn't be an issue...

Reply Ultimate the Hedgehog, December 12th, 2011, 9:29 pm

@OnceTMaster: yeah i know you save your images in jpeg... but it is hardly noticeable.

Reply Tex, December 13th, 2011, 4:48 pm

Huge pages are a no-no in my books, simply because it's supposed to be a comic, not a graffiti-wall.

Average size where the entire page will usually come out to 400-600 kbs is great. Gigantic pages where the filesize is an issue aren't. The other reason, is because people find themselves skipping past half the page on a first read-through because it's so effing long.

@Tex: I think your reasoning is slightly flawed only because this isn't a physical book, so page size shouldn't matter. Fan fictions are written extremely long for one page/chapter. I think webcomics are the same.

It is a bit big. Anyhow, man you and Mage have come a long way, your style's are so much more refined now, like a real comic. My format is so bland in comparison.

Reply Tex, December 15th, 2011, 4:15 pm

@OnceTMaster: Regardless if it's a physical book or not, my initial point holds some validity. People may find themselves quickly scrolling through giant pages without properly appreciating each panel the first time around, simply because of the size.

Fan fiction in general just make me.. Uneasy. D:

Even non physical books (on the little pods and junk) have the 'page flip' option.

And as I said, it fixes the 'kb limit' problem just like external hosting.

And of course, it just looks much neater when pages are actually the size of pages.

@Tex: I'll just stick with my personal preference of doing these pages at whatever length I please till I feel they're finished. ^^
