How To Publish Comic Book Online

Change Image Size in PhotoshopRemember to embed font files to the PDF being created. It is especially important if you use non-standard fonts in your digital comic. It is just as you’re suspecting, if the PDF reader software (e.g. Adobe Acrobat Reader) cannot find the fonts used in the comic, it will use the most matching ones available on the given device, which is not always a good idea.

You can also convert fonts to be included in the prepared PDF file to curves but it is not advised to do so because of the lower quality of typography, noticeable especially on devices with lower resolution displays. If you don’t have the font file or you don’t know where to find it, try to look for a matching one on the Font Squirre website. There you will find free fonts for commercial use.

3. Downsample images

PressPad_comicYour comic strips consist mainly of graphics and photos being a background for illustrating stories told, or scanned drawings. Keep in mind that the more high-resolution graphics, the bigger the size of your strip’s PDF file, and the more megabytes to download, the longer the time required to download the file.

Even fractions of a second matter here. Try to recall yourself browsing the last 10 web pages, probably a part of them didn’t even load completely. Now you see that download time plays a major role, so try to keep your output PDF files below 50 MB. In order for that, make sure to reduce the resolution of image files used to at least 150 ppi.

Flatten Text Because of Stairs EffectThe PPI unit defines the image resolution in pixels per square inch. The higher the PPI value, the bigger the resolution, thus bigger the image file size.

In order to scale down all images in the PDF file being created, follow the steps below:

From the top bar menu, in Photoshop navigate to the menu Image > Image Size…. In the new window, change the unit to “ppi” and input the correct value (e.g. 150), and then confirm by clicking the “ok” button.

Regarding inDesign select “File > Export” from the top bar menu, then set “Adobe PDF Preset [High Quality Print]“.

Ugh college books

It's such a ripoff. The only good thing I can say about when I took A&P is that we used our book 2 semesters. Couldn't sell it back b/c it's in really sad shape. I paid about 275 for mine too.
And this semester I had to buy new. The ethics book I bought can't be returned b/c it's highlighted and written in- a lot. Why? B/c that's how the teacher taught the class. Everything was right from the book and she wanted us to highlight and write in it. The math book and CD's I bought (it was an online course) can't be returned either (sigh). Maybe dd will be able to use it when she's in algebra
