I am new here and just got my first Webcomic uploaded, so now I am checking out the forum. Any help offered for new member are welcome as I seem to have some preoblem with layout and images size.

All and all, have a nice day and happy new year.

Welcome to the duck, there is a handy tips and tricks forum a few forums down from here, my image size is usually 810x1048, but it varies…usually my partner works with all that stuff, I just draw ink and write it. Some folks who know more than me should be along soon that can help you out much more:) I hope you enjoy it here on the duck!

Hello! Since no one else is being useful recently, I'm going to fill the gaping void left behind by ‘you probably don’t know what' by linking the help forums! Huzzah!

Here is Tips And Tricks, for all your burning questions about the world of webcomickry that just have to be answered.

Here is Help, How Do I, where you can ask questions about the website and be told that you can't do whatever it is.
Hey buddy, you should be a Russian Cosmonaut, and here's why.

Hello JesterBlue and welcome to the Drunk Duck. I looked over the pages that you posted up to this point and I believe that your page sizes look fine. I post my strip pages at a 750 pixel width.

I usually recommend the following trick to artists uncertain of their upload dimensions; just open up the pages of strips or comics that they already admire and see what other people are doing. Depending on what sort of computer you are using you can simply place your mouse cursor on the page and right click. A menu will appear on screen and at the bottom of the menu is the properties option. Left click on that and you will see the pixel size of the artwork.

Further down the Drunk Ducks forums options list is a Tips and Tricks forum and you can receive help there.

Be nice, Custard - don't make me get the hose. Wait… you're being polite? Helpful even! *feels your forehead* Feels like Custard… certainly SMELLS like Custard… *shrug*

Welcome to the fun, Jester! The others have mentioned some great places to go for tips and assistance, so I'd definitely start there ^.^ If you don't find what you're looking for, you can always ask one of us, too. We're friendly and uh… stuff.

Hey Jester, welcome to the Duck. The forums (fora?) are extremely helpful, and they tend cover just about everything categorized “technical difficulty”. One thing I've found helpful is having a forum banner. It makes your comic that much more accessible to the DD public. You can find out how (it's actually pretty easy) here: http://www.drunkduck.com/community/view_topic.php?tid=44391&cid=229

I hope you enjoy your time with us!
