I wonder if somebody know how to create cool sharp and smooth coloring pages in some Adobe program for online use? It have to be in GIF-format and no colours. Maybe somebody know some tricks? Thankful for all help :0)
Coloring pages are pages from a coloring book (colored with crayola crayons).
Any line art will do, since thats all it is. But its up to you on how you want the viewer to color page. Easiest way is let them print it out so they can use crayons.
Otherwise, they either have to use an image editor like photoshop or you need to create some flash code that allows the viewer to fill the blank portions of the page.
In all three cases, the line art would be saved as a raster image (jpg, png, tiff, etc.) As for flash code, that a bit beyond my knowledge (for now).
Thank you for your ansver!
I have bought a site license for one flash application so my visitors are supposed to color pictures in that. The application allows only gif format, so I'm afraid that any other formats don't suitable. I create sketches (removing colors from pictures) in Illustrator, make fat black stroke in illustrator than remove colours by to click up "fill" in Colour-panel and choose white. After that I save picture by "Safe for Web and Devices". And here is coming my problem: if I take color reduction algorithm black&white I get a suitable sketch for my application but lines are not nice, ruffled. If i use grayscale I get perfect lines but I get problem when I try coloring in my application - I get white border along stroke lines. I wonder what it is I do wrong? Or maybe there is some smarter way to produce sketches for my coloring pages?
You can create your line art as you will (Illustrator or Photoshop) but if you are stuck on 2 bit gif format the only thing you can do to improve quality is to increase resolution. Thus 150 pixels per inch (ppi) wil give you better results than 72 ppi.
>If i use grayscale I get perfect lines but I get problem when I try coloring in my application - I get white border along stroke lines.
If you zoom in on your work, you will see that both of these statements are false -- and one problem comes from another.
You cannot have smooth curved and angled lines AND pure black-and-white images.
