For creators uploading comics in the Vertical Scroll format, please refer to the following recommend file specifications:
Vertical Scroll Comic Specs
FILE FORMAT: PNG, JPG, JPEG
FILE COLOR PROFILE: RGB
ISSUE DIMS: 1000px width.
We are recommending an issue height of about 14-16 “panels” long (or 21,000px-22,500px long when all images are combined)
You’ll notice marked out the panel increments in the PSD. This is just for your reference in case it’s helpful.
DPI (of working file): We’ve set the PSD at 450 DPI.
Feel free to build your file at as high a resolution as you’d like. You can always export at a lower resolution.
DPI (of exported files): 72 or 150 has worked best for our creators.
VISIBLE AREA: Know that the visible area of a phone screen is about a 2:3 aspect ratio. Even though you’re designing it as one long scroll, your fans will only see a 2:3 (aspect ratio) section at a time. We’ve found that creators find this helpful as they think about the pacing and composition of their issue.
