In this week’s tutorial, you are going to learn a lot.
I am specifically answering your questions: PPI, CMYK, RGB, Bit-Depth, Raster Vs Vector images.
What are they? What do they do? How to choose?
This video was made following your comments and questions on my different social platforms. I understand your confusion and I hope this video will answer all your questions.
Also, I have added four updates from last week’s video. If you didn’t watch last week’s video, please feel free to skip this first part. The video’s tutorial starts at 02:32.
00:29 What I forgot to mention: # 1 - Creating a text, creates automatically a new vector layer.
00:59 What I forgot to mention: # 2 - Changing the font size.
01:26 What I did not know: # 1 - Adding new fonts to Krita.
01:48 What I did not know: # 2 – Kerning toggle is not working properly.
02:32 Understanding the basics of image resolution and color modes.
03:11 How do I set my image resolution? (showing you how + advice).
04:08 Color mode: Which one should I use? CMYK (why to use it and what it does).
05:06 Color mode: Which one should I use? RGB (why to use it and what it does).
05:47 So… Which one should I use?
06:02 What is bit depth and how to set it? Watch as I give detailed information and show you the formula used in software to calculate how many tones you will get.
06:56 Which one should I use? (bit depth).
08:15 Slide showing you the settings I use for my image resolution, color mode and bit depth.
08:24 Deciding which image to create: RASTER IMAGES VS VECTOR IMAGES.
09:15 What is a raster image?
10:40 What is a vector image? Explaining how it works. This will be interesting if you were wondering…
12:08 A quick comparison. Comparing a raster image and a vector image.
12:30 Pros and Cons of Raster Images.
13:01 Pros and Cons of Vector images.
13:35 Conclusion and introduction to next week’s video.
As always, be sure to let me know if I forgot anything or if you don’t agree with my explanations. I am neither a computer expert nor a software engineer. So, I’ll be happy to learn from you. Thank you in advance.
