If you’re looking to create a webtoon, you might be wondering about the format.
Webtoons are typically stacked on top of each other in a vertical format, as opposed to the traditional horizontal layout of comic pages but this doesn’t mean you can’t upload traditional comic pages, this is just a breakdown of the different sizing. This format is used on sites like Tapas and Webtoons.
If you want to publish on LINE WEBTOON CANVA free publishing platform here are some sizes to keep in mind for your files:
- WEBTOON CANVA series square thumbnail is 1080 x 1080 pixels
- The episode thumbnail should be a maximum of 160 x 151 pixels
- The webtoon page file size is 800 x 1280 pixels (though their auto reformatter will allow you to upload a larger file and resize it for you).
- The vertical thumbnail size should be 1080 x 1920 pixels, and the image must be less than 700KB.
On Tapas (also known as Tapastic), the size requirements are a bit different.
- The webtoon series thumbnail is around 960 x 1440 pixels
- The episode thumbnail is around 300 x 300 pixels.
- The size of your webtoon image file is around 940 x 4000 pixels
- And the series banner should be a maximum of 1280 x 460 pixels
If you’re having trouble uploading your webtoon because it’s one long strip, you can use a website like croppy to cut it into multiple images for uploading on platforms like WEBTOON CANVA or Tapas. And don’t worry about the images not connecting – both Webtoon Canva and Tapas will automatically connect them together to create a seamless, vertical strip.
