First Comic (almost) Done!

posted by Alucai Vivorvel on 21st Nov 2011, 9:14 PM

After a long wait, the very first comic page of Unreal Circumstances is just about ready for upload! All I have to do is resize it to an appropriate size, because 8 1/2 x 11 is a little large when scanned in.

I recently installed Vista overtop Windows 7. Thus, a partition I created in Windows 7, (in)conveniently the partition where I have all my files stored, has permission issues. I've tried setting the Owner of the entire drive to my standard user account (that is, not the Administrator version of my account), but GIMP still won't let me save a new file. Ironically, it will let me overwrite a pre-existing file. Which means, my original-sized comic is now an .xcf that is 1000 px wide, so if I do any more resizing, it won't look right.

You cannot upload .xcf files. And I can't save in PNG.

Do you see my dilemma?

I'm still not sure if I will have chapters, though I'm leaning towards it. For the moment, I'm just posting the first comic, but if I do end up sticking with a chapter-based system, I will (eventually) post a cover for the first one.
