Commission Question

Post by rlcg on Mon Mar 30, 2009 6:26 am

I just wanted to ask those who are working on for commissions like freelancers. Those specially whose occupations are digital painters. I just wanted to ask if when a client tells you to make an artwork and you are using Photoshop, what format are you going to submit? Is it the PSD or the JPEG format? I'm planning to work as freelance digital painter and this topic may help other aspiring digital painters who would want to work as freelancers. 2thumbsup

Of course it depends on how your client will be using the artwork - but if I'd commision I won't be happy working on a lossy compression format like jpeg.

I always make it a point to request the data source with highest possible resolution. This will enable me to work on quick fixes without degrading quality. It is fine though to submit in-progress images in jpegs.

You mean it would be better in PNG. But the file maybe too large to submit if it would be in PSD. How much would be the max file size that can be attached in email specially on ymail? Question

Its a big no-no to send files via email at something larger than 1 meg. You will be admired by your clients if you show them you respect their well-being by emailing them links to the files you stored in free web hostings like yousendit or shesendit or whosendit whoever.

depende sa situation nito bro. you can use jpeg pag tarpaulin lang iprint. pro pag mga high gloss papers na. try submitting your file in PSD or Tif at 300dpi. Sa file handling naman, send mo through yousendit.com. You can also send it through a courier or hand them the dvd personally. Good luck! Smile

I agree with suggestions made v_wrangler and bokkins. TIFF is the best format to save it in. But when in doubt, most of all regarding issues of RGB and CMYK, save it in PSD but dont forget to give the flattened version, sila nlang bahala normally to handle it.

file sending, most clients have their own ftp sites they will be providing you to send your work kaya no worries. But if private clients send it through the SENDit's or Discs as what was recommended above.

Goodluck!

As I was watching the yousendit.com , eh, yung free member up to 100mb lang yung max file size na pedeng ma upload. yung digipaintings ko masave in PSD e umaabot ng 40 to 70MB to pede ako sa yousendit. Sabi ninyo rin nga depende sa client. Maganda rin naman TIFF format.

Pero tanong ko lang kay kuya Jeff, sa mga clients mo ano ba kadalasan hinihingi nila na format? I'm just curious kasi well known ka sa CG.

For animations, we can always deal with TIFFs or Targas, if you need the alpha channels. For single RGBs, PNGs are best because they are light. It just so happen that they are more popular among web applications but they are of course very much usable in production.

of course - if you don't need the extra alphas in TIFFs or Targas, save out to 24 bits and you make em instantly lighter with the built-in lossless compression.
