View Full Version : Appropriate size for custom paintings?
16th May 2007, 12:24 PM
As many of you who have Seasons know, this EP came with the option to add your own personal pictures to the Pictures folder, which I like as Alt-Tabing out of the game was getting a little bothersome. However, even though it comes with the options to 'crop' or 'fit' the picture into the frame, my pictures always get painted looking a little skewed.
Does anyone happen to know the 'perfect' size to make a picture so that it comes out looking exactly like it does outside the game?

I make all mine:
width: 250 pixels
height: 400 pixels
or anything with the same ratio (500x800, 375x600, etc)

I resize the pictures I use to exactly the same dimensions as the pictures used by Maxis, which are:
Using these dimensions, my pictures have looked great in game and have not become distorted :)

Thanks to you both. I now have a good guideline with which to make my pictures. :) A 5:8 ratio sounds pretty good.

Yes, thank you! Mine have all been trial and error so far...:D
