About Me Amelia

My days growing up were spent wandering in the lush evergreen cathedrals or poking along the sandy shores of the bay. Nature, the colors, the flowers, the berries, has always been a source of inspiration. Being creatively obsessed with sketching, creating patterns or brushing paints onto a blank surface makes a most satisfying day with my ever present cup of tea and my most helpful studio assistant naughty Coco.

Have you tried playing with the "quality" percentage when you're saving your jpg? Sometimes when my files are big, I have to reduce it down to 75-80%. You can always check to see if it's 200KB before uploading to the site by right clicking the file and clicking the "get info" option. If all else fails, reach out to the Minted team. I'm positive they would be happy to help and I'd love to see your designs!

Amelia, thank you so much for your sweet comment! I think you're a fantastic artist, and I'm a fan of your work! I wish you the best of luck in the challenges - I'm sure you'll have more wins coming your way, soon! Your work is so lovely!! Regarding your question, maybe your file is still too large to submit. That could be the reason you're getting a "wrong size" message. Online submissions have to be 200 kb or less. Here are the instructions from the Minted submission kit: For submission, you must save out your file at no larger than 550 x 550 pixels, under 200kb, and in JPEG format. Files that are too large will not be accepted. JPEGs must be in RGB color mode. Designs Created in Illustrator From the File Menu in Illustrator, select ‘Save for Web & Devices…’ We recommend selecting the Preset ‘JPEG High.’ Quality 60 is usually fine, but it can be optimized as you see fit to get the best file size/quality ratio. Just below the presets menu, click on the ‘Image Size’ tab. Make sure the ‘Constrain Proportions’ box is checked. Set the larger side of your design to 550 pixels and click on the ‘Apply’ button, then save. Designs Created in InDesign From the File Menu in InDesign, select ‘Export.’ Below the ‘File name:’ box you will see the ‘Save as type:’ drop down menu where you will select JPEG. Once you click on the ‘Save’ button an export JPEG menu will pop up. Select a resolution of ‘72’ from the drop down menu. Once you’ve saved your image from InDesign, open the file in Photoshop to Save for Web. From the File Menu in Photoshop, select ‘Save for Web & Devices…’ We recommend selecting the Preset ‘JPEG High.’ Quality 60 is usually fine, but it can be optimized as you see fit to get the best file size/quality ratio. Set the larger side of your design to 550 pixels, then save. Hope that info helps, Amelia! If you're still having problems, just let me know and I'll try to help you. :)
