I'm sorry this sounds ignorant, but I really don't know how to make sure my work that I submit is at least 3 MPs.
Using PSP 8 I've submitted my first illustration which is a 300 dpi image at a size of 1000 x 1000 pixels, but get an error message saying my image is not the right size. If someone is willing to inform me what and how I can recreate my illustrations to be at least 3 Megapixels within PSP 8 I'd truly be grateful.
Quoted Message: Hi Neddog, and thanks for your input too.
I have never worked with Vector (shame-faced) but always in PNG or JPG.
Seeing that I can only use my JPGs here I really wouldn't know what or how to create a Vector of my creations. I think I've got a lot to learn... heh.
Any suggestions as to where I can learn about Vector and the process of creating this additional file for my submissions?
No, no... You don't want to create vector art as an additional file format, you want to create your illustrations in vector format to start. The JPGs you upload here are the ones that should be rasterized off the vector art.
If you weren't using vector format, then how were you thinking of resizing your artwork? You can't just upsample a digital painting any more than you can upsample a photograph. They're both raster images, and the size you create them at is the largest size they can be without degradation of the image.
So if your drawings weren't 3MP to begin with, you're going to have to redraw them (unless of course it's just a tiny wee bit under). If they were vector art to begin with, you would just resize them and save them out at a larger size, cut and dry.
As far as learning how to create vector art... If you've never done it before, don't think it's something you can just pick up and start submitting stock from. It's a completely different form of drawing than just painting with a tablet. Maybe try learning Adobe Illustrator through Total Training's DVDs or Adobe's Classroom in a Book.

Thanks, Neddog. I think I'll pass on learning something new right now, but I will keep this program in mind. When I am feeing more adventurous I just might want to explore a new way of creating digital art :)
Surely you know that no one other than Support can answer that question. We cannot guess and rejection problems which are not discussed on the forum can only be answered by them. Contact Support with your image ID and you will get an answer..
