WLM 2018: Hexagons

The Details

  1. Challenge ends when February does.
  2. See updated rules here.
  3. You must tag your layouts with this tag: wlm 2018
  4. See entered layouts here.
  5. Link your layout here in the forum to your gallery. Doing this makes it much easier for others to find your layout and smiley or comment on it. If you don't know how to do this there is a great tutorial here.
  6. For more details on Winter Layout Madness, see this post.

700 x560

This looks distorted to me. I have it at 700 X 488...originally, 2152 X 1500.

Here this should help :
1) Goto your layout page :
https://www.pixelscrapper.com/bonnie-ballentine/gallery/2016-mpcc-players-framed-layout-wlm-2018-5-x-7-card-ivory

2) Right click "open link in new tab" or window

3) You should see this link

4) Now use that image link with your 700 x 488 dimensions and this will make it both not blurry AND the correct dimensions.

The reason is if you just use the image that shows up as the layout image on your gallery page its only 456x456 so you are essentially sizing up a square image and distorting it to rectangle proportions. smiley

Hope that helps!

Woo Hoo! Thank you, Jessica! I will try it in just a few minutes. Should I do this for 12 X 12 also?

Much better...thanks again!

Well I always use the link image and scale for a square image for the 12x12 as it will keep the image from being blurry. smiley

Edited to add : When I upload my gallery image is actually 1000x1000 so I use 600x600 but I always use the "open link in new tab" url & not the "view image" url on the layout page. Make sense?

Looks like you got it! smiley

Jessica, thank you I believe this has helped me too.
