Anonymous asked: What profiles do you work under in photoshop? I have this problem every time I try to post in society6 its says "insufficient resolution" every time I post my art. How do i set my art up before I begin and what color profile I should work under and my pixel to aspect ratio be? What should my resolution and bits be when I set it up when I press "new project". And should it be pixels/inches or pixels/centimeters. Please help I need to pay off my student loans and my job doesn't pay enough.
To be honest, Society6 has some weird rules in regard to their printing requirements. Typically, the best way to set up a document for printing is a 300dpi file set to a CMYK color profile.
Society6 on the other hand does everything via pixels and RGB. So make sure the files you want to upload are set to the RGB color profile. Also, the higher the file-size, the better. The site can gauge how big your file is and will only sell the prints at sizes in which it will look good. But you still want them to be high on the pixel count. I would suggest building your initial files at least 2000 pixels wide to avoid blurry posters. As for some of their other products, they give you specific sizes once you post the poster version. For example, the pillows have to be built as a square document between 3500px and 6000px.
