Ok so I submitted my design and an e-mail came back saying that the image was distorted. I had all the proportions right and when I checked on it, it looked fine just a bit wide.
Thank you All so much I finally got it submitted.
yes, make the shirt like 830 high, and let gimp figure out the other dimension. if the width doesnt change, click the chain thing thats by the #'s and it should change when you change the height. just make sure after you get it onto the detail template, that you don't save your original artwork that small
Ok so I figured out (after a while) how to put it on the submission template I then submitted it and the e-mail came back saying "It looks like you made the shirt wider then it should be."so can I make the shirt any size as long as it fits on the template? and looks right?
ok I may be submitting it wrong. I have been submitting the shirt as it is in 1440x840 and sending it in but not submiting it on the image templates is that the reason why? if so how do I transfer the image to the card like things?
you don't have to fill the whole space with the shirt...
When I submit it, it only has 2 spots to submit the 200x200 and the 1440x840 I use the scale in Gimp to change it to the 200x200 and 1440x840 so when it goes to 1440x840 the shirt gets streched long.
i don't really understand. you should have 3 files. a print file that's the original size at 300 dpi. a thumbnail image which uses a portion of the shirt as a teaser, and a "feature" image at the 1440x840 dimension that you're talking about. nothing should ever be "stretched" or "distorted". if you're using free transform to shrink it, hold shift while shrinking it so the proportions stay the same.
It was wider because of the change I had to make from like 2200x3300 or something like that to 1440x840 is that bad?
"a bit wide"? any distortion of the image is bad. why was it wider than the original?
