FAQ: Is There any way to get images edited in Gimp to work in Zazzle?

admin - Friday, 2 October 2009 07:49

Here’s a common question when bootstrapping your use of print-on-demand services… free store on Zazzle using graphics made with a free graphics editor, GIMP. (Of course, free is only in terms of money, not time.) Anyway, here’s the question… see the comments people posted as answers. Got a better answer? Post one yourself.

Whenever I make an image in GIMP is the wrong type of file. How can I convert the type of file?

    Save as…
    Choose a filetype that is compatible.

    More then likely when you save the image, the file name is *.xcf, this is the filename that GIMP uses, just like Photoshop uses the *.psd file extension to preserve all of your layers that you have created. To resolve this:

    when you are completed with your photo, click File –> “Save As” and in the filename box at the top, type in your filename and then type in your file extension, (ie .jpg, .gif, .png) and click save.

    P.S. Most image hosting websites only allow Jpeg and GIF image types to be uploaded

    Hope this helps
