Are you trying to publish a webtoon on Tapas or LINE Webtoon but you’re having some issues with the canvas size being wrong?
There are a few different ways that you can go about sizing and slicing your webtoon canva to upload on to webtoon but here are my two current favorite ways.
You can either use an online image slicer called Croppy or you can use the export resize function that most typical art programs like Clip Studio Paint have.
You can also manually crop, or use image resize but if you have a lot of panels or files to work on this can be a little tedious but it’s still doable!
What I do is I will export my file which usually will have 2 panels for 1 webtoon page file.
After that I will then crop the whole canvas by selecting the change canvas.
Here you will see a section within the canvas resize called reference points, these are what I use to help me slice my webtoon panel.
After I crop the top have I save it as a different webtoon panel file and then go and click my undo button so that I can go back in and crop the bottom half by clicking the bottom reference point.
One of the things that I love about Clip Studio Paint is that I can batch export and resize all of my files all at once without having to resize the main file individually; Such a life saver!
How Do You Slice a Webtoon
If you are creating all of your webtoon panels in one long file (800px x 20000px) you can export the file and upload it onto and online image slicer.
My current favorite free online webtoon slicer is called Croppy and it will help slice your images to according to either LINE Webtoon or Tapas format requirement. It’s also a lot less tedious than the way I usually do it~

If you are creating your webtoon panels in separate batched files of 1600px x 4800px, I usually do 1-2 panels for this canvas size, then all you’d really need to do is export it to LINE and Tapas canva size.
LINE Webtoon Format: Webtoon Upload Size No larger 800px 1280px
Tapas Canva Format: Webtoon Upload Size No larger than 940 x 4000px
