With Spring SIFF preperations in full effect I have gotten a couple questions about making posters. I am going to see if I can post a relativly easy to follow and complete tutorial on how to do this using Photoshop. This should get you started. If you have any questions on how to do something ask here and someone is sure to be able to give you pointers and answer your questions.


The Very Basicis

  • Dimensions: Use either 589x842 or  831x1169 pixels per inch at 300 dpi. It's all about ratio and being able to resize things if need be for various magazine type things around the site that we may use them for.
  • Screen Size: This is important, and it goes for taking pictures of all kinds that you are going to use for something. I know not everyone has the greatest graphics cards and you have to turn down all your graphics in order to play withotu lag, however, when you pause the game for the picture, go into options and turn your resolution and graphics up all the way just to get the picture. You can return them afterward. It's easier to resize smaller than it is larger.
  • Content: Make sure it's relevant to your movie or band. This is the biggest thing. The last Toxic Dream poster I made was just a resized and cropped picture that I staged and made to fit onto the canvas I made. There was nothing fancy done to it.
  • Text: Make sure that text can be easily read. This means making sure that you have an easy to read (and relevant) font that is in a contrasting color that doesn't clash with your image.
  • In short, create your blank canvas, stage your main picture, take the picture at the highest graphics and setting resoulitions, crop and resize your image to fit your blank canvas, add tesxt. Save.

Yes. That is stated in the guidlines. :)  You can download various versions of the logo in the SIFF poster thread.
