When i try and upload something to a forum it won't do it.
I have tried lots of times but it just takes ages then says
"this file type cannot be accepted."
but i paint everything on artrage 2/2.5...
the file type is "Artrage Painting(*.ptg)"
i havent set it to this, and i cannot change it when i say "save as".
Please help!!!

within ArtRage itself, instead of Saving As (which allows you to rename your painting - such as xxx_base_color.ptg, or xxx_version1.ptg) try

Export as Image - then choose the .jpeg format. Might also be .jpg.

JPEG's are compressed images very suited for display over the internet.

You could also export as a .psd, which is the Photoshop format. You would then convert your image to .jpg in Photoshop, Photoshop Elements, Paintshop Pro, GIMP, or several other image editing programs. It's also easy to resize the picture, adjust the colors, and control the compression when doing the conversion within one of these programs.

A .jpg file should post to the forums just fine.

Good luck.

I have just begun using artrage on an iPad. The files are small (225 kb). If I want to make a large print I will need higher res files. Anyway to accomplish this?
