Solution to the question: Why did Microsoft leave the snap-to Grid out of Paint 3D?

 

Paint 3D could prove a very useful piece of creative software for book cover design, with the exception of the missing grid.

What to do?

You see that grid up there…yes, the one at the top of the article.  Go ahead…right click on your mouse and save it to your desktop…and then upload it into Paint 3D.  You will be amazed.

 

The Adobe Spark No 300 DPI Image Download Solution

WE DEMAND 300 DPI NOW!

I love Adobe Spark.  It has to be one of the most beautiful pieces of creative software kit to come along lately; or perhaps I have been blissfully asleep while plodding along with my trusty old Acrobat Pro9, which is quite capable in many instances for many creative functions.

However, I began using Spark when I discovered that a good deal of image quality loss was occurring when saving my Adobe .pdf book cover files to .jpeg in PRO, no matter that I beat the tar out of pre-flight, stomped on the flattener, and even had my hound dog attempt to chew it down some more.

CAVEAT; Spark has an image problem….so to speak….

Spark’s big problem is that images download at 96 DPI.  The software is being pitched as being good for designing book covers, and it is, however; a 96 DPI image is useless to someone needing to upload the Spark finished product to their book printer who require a 300 DPI image.  Thus, another piece of software is needed.  Here is the solution.  Click here to learn how to download IrfanView 64 from a ingenious engineering cat named Irfan Skiljan living in Vienna, Austria.  Or heck, just click here to download it. With this software one may depress the 300DPI FAST ACTION GET’ER DONE BUTTON and wa-la, Adobe’s 96 DPI magically decompresses.   Shame on Adobe….and oh….don’t forget to buy the license from Irfan, it’s only ten bucks and will help him continue developing the software.

Actually, they may be marketing geniuses, hoping customer frustration will turn into additional software subscription sales.  Nawww...they wouldn’t be that cruel 1 would they?
