You are doing such a great thing!
I’d love to get my ‘Electro-fun’ flyer promoted by you. You’d help me a lot, since I’m kinda new here. Thanks in advance!
It is working for me, and it’s a bit changed.
I, usually, let the customer decide what size he wants, that’s why I release my flyers/posters in more sizes (from A3/A4/Letter to A5/4×6). I think it’s the best thing to do, even if it takes more time. There is a thread on this forum where are posted some tips to reduce the size of PSD file.Here is another link: http://webajeb.blogspot.com/2010/02/five-ways-to-reduce-psd-or-tif-file.html
Five Ways to Reduce PSD (or TIF ) File Sizes:
Before starting a new layout: 1. Choose the correct canvas size. Don’t create layouts at 12×12 if you plan to print at 8×8. Templates, quick pages, and digital papers delivered at 12×12 can be scaled down as needed.
After your layout is finished:
2. Crop the canvas. With the marquee tool, start at one corner of your canvas and drag the mouse to the opposite corner to select the entire canvas. From the menu select Image, Crop. Press Enter. This trims any part of digital elements or photos that extend outside the boundaries of your canvas.
3. Delete any hidden or extra (duplicate) layers. Turning the eye on and off to make sure the layer is truly extra.
4. Delete that original white background layer, if it’s no longer needed. Most likely it’s totally covered by another piece of paper!
5. Merge any clipped layers. This is a biggie! You’ll shrink your file size by a lot by getting merging the clipped layers together. If you use template you can easily end up with 6 or 7 extra layers (photos) that are clipped to the template.
I’ve also submitted a flyer and I’m waiting for an answer. I’ll let you know soon as I receive it, but I doubt they’ll choose a flyer for the FFOM .
