Ah, February! The month that we get to show our love of chocolate–I mean show our love with chocolate.
If I were a moose (and I have pondered such things), I would of course not know about chocolate. But I am certain that I would have a favorite food, and the way to my heart would, naturally, be to find me that food.
Multiple screen resolutions and non-calendar versions at the bottom of the post.
This month I used some quiet textures (applied as a Pattern Overlay layer style), and ran into difficulty when trying to save out the different resolutions. For all the different desktop resolutions, there are only 4 aspect ratios – thus four Photoshop documents. Then when I am saving the wallpapers as JPEGs, I resize them in the Save For Web dialog. It usually works fine.
However, I found that the textures were hopelessly blurred by this method. I had to create a separate document for each resolution this time, resizing with the Image Size command and unchecking the “Scale Styles” box. This of course, meant that my layer effects needed tweaking as well, but it kept the textures intact.
It’s something to keep in mind, especially for iPhone artwork – you cannot simply make your Retina art and save at half-size if you want touchable textures.
If there’s another resolution you need, let me know!
