Manga Studio 5 AKA Clip Studio Export TutorialA quick tutorial I probably should have made a while ago. This was requested.
My pages are enormous and sometimes it's hard to export your page and downsize it to view online. Things go wrong with the tones or something screws up so I'm going to share how I get it done for all of my webcomics. If you are still having issues, please note me and we can tackle it together on join.me
Export Method 1:
First export or save as PNG. This is very important. Make sure everything is set to 100%. You really want it exported at full size.
Ignore the preview!! It does not give an accurate preview unless you are viewing it at 100%. It will look something like this. I usually have it turned off for tone work.
After you have exported your page at full size as a PNG file open it back up. The reason why we do it this way is because it's a nice and flat rasterized image. It will be easier to downsize without loosing too much
Software ListWelp, let's face it: choosing art software can be a major pain if you don't know what's out there.
So, here's a list of stuff. Enjoy!
Just because I have something on this list doesn't mean that I know how to use it very well. Evaluate the options at your discretion.
