Use these sizes for Gifs & Edits, for the best display of your creations. (▰˘◡˘▰)
268 | 268 / 177 | 178 | 177 / 540 pixels
with a 2 mb file size limit for gifs.
**updated feb. 23, 2017 : it’s now 3 mb for gifs. wheeee ヽ( ´ ∇ ｀ )ノ
Footnote 1: There are height limits too but they’re not as important since ppl don’t often make graphics in those sizes, but the 540 x 810 max for photo posts is the one that will come up the most. And so you know, the white little spaces (margins) between gifs are 4 pixels.
Footnote 2: In the triple set, if you don’t use the 178 pixel width for the middle piece, it will be blurry. This is slightly new adjustment by Tumblr to compensate for the leftover pixel. 177 x 3 = 531 then + 8 for the margins = 539. 1 extra pixel. Phew math, hard.
Footnote 3: About 24-30 frames usually can be stuffed into full width gifs, 30-70+ in double and triple gifs. I don’t recommend skipping frames, unless it’s really warranted. Skipping frames is gauche.
Footnote 4: There are some stubborn graphic-makers who still stick with the old dimensions, (245/160/500). Largely this is to do with the lack of theme help from Tumblr to adjust to the new sizes they forced on us a couple years ago. However, Tumblr supports the gifs with the new sizes on the dash now, so it’s actually better to use the new sizes. - What happens within the dashboard is infinitely more important than on blog pages. The dash and tag pages are where the majority of notes come from. (ﾉ◕‿◕)ﾉ*:･ﾟ✧･
Ahhh thank you again//// im kinda flattered you would ask me for tips;;;;; Well colouring is really VERSATILE and so many possibilities!!! So there’s no right or wrong way to colour//// Here is just some stuff on how I colour, hope it helps!!!
tutorial: how to get rid of the transparent borders around gifs
if your gifs appear to have borders around them (most noticeable in darker gifs), you can get rid of them by changing the default color blend mode. the borders do not depend on the way you crop your gifs, but rather on the color photoshop uses to blend transparent pixels.
Hi I'm indy I'm a new follower I plan on going in to computer science! Any advice ?
Hi there! Ohhh that’s so awesome, good luck! Computer science is an amazing subject to study! I was terrified at first because I haven’t had much experience in coding before going to uni, but you’re going to be just FINE trust me! ✨
💻 first of all DON’T BE SCARED YOU CAN’T CODE - that’s why you’re going to computer science in the first place, to learn to code. Of course, there’s going to be people who are pro-coders already, but don’t get intimidated by them, find your own pace and just do your thing! They’re probably repeating the year anyway or they transferred.
💻 I know in computer science you’re mostly like ‘why do I need lectures when I need to CODE not listen about coding’, but trust me GO TO LECTURES - I attended (almost) every lecture possible during my first year and it really made a World of a difference especially if you’re a newbie to all of this! You’ll meet the professors and you’ll know what they’re expecting of you and they’ll probably tell you some funny stories as well. Plus you’ll have more familiar faces on the campus :)
💻 DO SOME READING - there’s one lecture that I didn’t go to and that was a mistake I tell you. I didn’t go because the lecturer's voice was boring and I was literally falling asleep. But after I did some reading about the subject before the exam I realized his words were very valuable, but unfortunately if you already knew a bit about the subject, so if you have a subject that bores you - do some reading on your own and then go to the lecture. you’ll get much more information out of it!
💻 CODE AT HOME - after you’ve practiced some skills during the classes, go home and practice them again on your own. Try doing something useful or fun with it. Like make it print out “Yolo” in a circle (I did that, no regrets lmao)
💻 INSTALL ALL THE SOFTWARE DURING YOUR FIRST WEEK - install all the things you’re going to need during the year on your first week, honestly, please do! It’ll save you time later on. As soon as the professor mentions what you should install, note it down, go home, install it.
💻 PRACTICE EVEN REALLY SIMPLE THINGS - if you don’t understand anything just type it on youtube and you’ll find plenty of the video tutorials which ARE AMAZING. They helped me a lot with understanding some stuff I couldn’t get a grip of. And I know you’ll find some stuff that you’re like “I don’t need to practice this, this is trivial” IT’S NOT and you’ll get it wrong if you don’t code it at least once, just do it, it’ll take like 30s.
It’s useless against the likes of the Green Goblin, Venom, or the Lizard, but if you’re trying to rescue a quarter that’s fallen down a storm drain, you’ll be 25 cents richer with one of these strapped to your wrist! 🛠️
Hi, do you know any resources to start learning coding, preferably for free? Ty!!
Hiya! ✨ Yeah, I’ll see what I can find! However! Online courses often have a build in a code editor. Don’t. Honestly, do not. Get a full software and install it, don’t be restricted to just an online code editor, even on a basic level.
First of all decide what language you want to start learning. For complete beginners, I’d recommend Python or C.
And now here are some “tools” to use while programming:
🔌 stackoverflow - biggest platform there is; you can ask them anything, but it’s probably been asked before so try looking on it at first
🔌 cppreference.com - has all the information about c++ built in libraries, functions, variables and anything you’ll possibly need
🔌 python visualizer - helps you visualize code if you don’t have a compiler on your laptop - they also have other languages
🔌 python tutorial
game development with pygame - do something FUN! It’s not that hard, just try it
