don’t save as jpeg
as a former yearbook editor and designer, let me explain this further
if youre only planning on posting your art online, them please save it as .png ;this is also better for transparencies as well
please, if youre planning of printing your art, NEVER…
Do you know what you get when you save as jpeg?
Hella visual artifacts, no matter what quality you save it as (lossless jpeg is another matter (no one fucking uses lossless jpeg))
Lemme show you
Here’s a zoomed in comparison of some bullshit doodle i did for lifeinjigoku
(Right click and view as image) Left is JPEG, right is PNG
Look at the visual artifacts in the pink coloring. Also notice how the shade is darker and has less depth
The JPEG (top) is so much rougher and fucks up the crayon texture ughughughugh
It’s even worse if you’re a pixel artist
Here’s a sprite by friend sir-aulin
Bottom is JPEG. Look at the solid color on the PNG (top). Look at how that solid coloring’s completely fucked by JPEG compression.
Here’s the same JPEG manipulated with curves to better show the color bleeding
Lesson of the day: Never use jpeg.
