Converting Scraps Printing sizes
to TAG for web sizes

(by PCArt)

A question comes up quite often when creating Scraps for printing - about them being so big, and how people who do NOT want to print but only want to create for making TAGS for the web and for e-mail, don't know how to adjust thier sizes.

When you look at tags sometimes large elements like paper clips and buttons are used "almost as big".

It really is a question of personal taste.

Can you believe converting your size while creating from a tutorial is this easy?
Simply follow the Scrapping tutorial with the dimensions given, But change from 300 pixels per inch to 72 pixels per inch :)


Please note that creating on a smaller image also means down sizing the textures etc., given in the tutorials, so you will need to experiment with effects and filters to suit yourself.

Also a 12 inch x 12 inch paper will still be too big for a tag even at 72 pixels per inch so if you plan on creating a "paper" for your tags make it about 600 x 600 pixels at 72 pixels per inch.

EXAMPLES
POST CARD Print Size 6 inches x 4 inches at 300 pixels per inch as per Scrapping Tutorial/size guide.
*Converted to TAG size - same dimensions 6 inches x 4 inches at 72 pixels per inch
Postage Stamp for print size 1 inch x 1,5 inches 300 pixels per inch as per Scrapping Tutorial/size guide.
*Converted to TAG size - same dimensions 1 inch x 1,5 inches at 72 pixels per inch
