maybe if you save the bigger paper files as TIFF...it takes up less space and can always be converted to a jpg file by the user of the kit..your clusters and papers are beautiful and I do love the butterfly paper..its gorgeous
Thank you so much for the lovely compliment and I did a little research on your suggestion re TIFF vs. JPG. The idea is great only the size works in reverse … TIFF files are much larger than JPG files. The butterfly paper saved as a JPG is about 19.6 Mb on my hard drive but the same paper saved as a TIFF is 38.7 Mb. Also, even if the TIFF file were smaller, I’m not sure that all the programs used by scrapbookers to create their layouts can load the TIFF format. In any case, I want to thank you again for taking the time to try and help me … it truly IS “the thought that counts.”
Maybe the solution is just to save the paper files as 6 x 6 images rather than 12 x 12 … BUT … there’s always a BUT … I THINK that frequent loading and saving together with resizing results in loss of detail in JPG files. The obvious thing to do is make papers that are not so complex. However, I’m a “mad woman” when it comes to effects and blends :). Anyone can fill an image with a simple colour so it seems pointless to make papers that simple.
Any and all suggestions are more than welcome!!!
