Hi I'm new here, and new to webcomics. What's a good size/resolution for webcomic pages? I uploaded a few and they were gigantic… way too big.

I worked at 300 dpi, on pages 10x15 inches. These were way too big of course. Just now I tried sizing down to 72 dpi and it looked ok, but I'm wondering if I can get away with a little bigger. 100 dpi?

the DPI is important for printing, but for the web what you really want is simply the pixel dimensions.
So something 10 x 15 inches and 300DPI is 3000 x 45000 pixel in size.

Since most screen sizes are set to 1024 or bigger these days 800 to 900 pixels wide is a good size to go for. So you can keep the web version at 300 dpi and just drop the dimensions down to something like 900 x 1350 pixels
