2. What size should my source image be?
Your source image should be a perfect square. This means the ratio of your design should be 1:1. Please make sure your pixel size does not exceed 1600 X 1600 pixels!
3.in Tylist, What’s the difference between file >load project and file > new image?
Load project is a mosaic file, which includes tile type, color, and size preset. Select ‘load project’ and upload the Mosaic_Template.tylist file.
A new image refers to your source image. Each project contains a jpeg, which is then transformed into your output image. Once you have the Mosaic_Template.tylist file open, you’ll want to go to file > new image and upload your design.
4. I am having trouble submitting my design. Why is my project file not uploading?
Please note all designs must be submitted as a .tylist file and can’t be more than 20 MB in size.
