The webtoon size is similar to the traditional comic size but the difference is that webtoons typically have 1-2 panels per page but webcomics have 4-5 sometimes 10 per page~
Webtoons upload size is 800px by 1280px but when I’m drawing my webtoon I’ll actually draw it in 1600 px canva.
The size that you draw your webtoon in will actually be a bigger size then what you need to save and upload it onto webtoons platform.
The reason why I suggest 1600px is because that’s double the size of the upload requirement.
That way it’s easy for you to resize your image without distortion and blurry linear or dimension recalculation.
Here is a quick rundown of my Webtoon Image and Font process:
1. I draw my webtoon size with a width of 1600 pixels wide and 4800 pixels long because I like to have about 2 panels per image file.
2. The DPI I like to draw in is 600 dpi but 300 would work just fine but since I want to print my webtoon eventually I keep my dpi high for the image quality.
3. When I add my text I like to do it before I decrease or resize my image because the size of the font will change depending on the dpi and image size of my file. I avoid all of that headache and just draw and add the text all at once.
4. I like to use a font size of 14 pixels which is still super legible on mobile devices and desktops if my dpi is at 300. So the larger the dpi the larger the font and image will appear
5. Now I like to save my image files in jpg which does cause a little bit of image quality loses but since my dpi is still around 600 or 300 there isn’t much visible notice and thanks to the jpg format the file size is still small so I don’t have to worry about going over Webtoons 20MB limits.
