Pixels is for people who are using GIMP, Paint, Photoshop, or other computer-generated artwork platforms. You can scan your artwork in and someone with a Photoshop-like art program can resize it if necessary.

I used MS Paint :icon_eek: to create my card images - sort of like trying to paint the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel with a bowling ball for a brush. :icon_e_sad:

There are three ways of looking at things; theirs, yours, and my Tarot cards.

Thanks Tarotbear! Love this card 😁. I can only go old skool. My husband has an old version of Photoshop I think - I'll get him to help once I have finished drawing.

Well if you look at the first msg, it will give you the size in inches. and if you can save it as 300 once you scan it in, it should be cool.

Yeah I have zero idea what that means. Lol. I have never scanned anything in my life or created any art on the computer so this is all an adventure :)

In the States, at least, you can pay to have your thing scanned at most office supply stores. They overcharge but can handle extra large size documents and will understand whatever technical specs you provide them.
