    Hi,
    I noticed there is a limit to resize the width to smaller than 115px. Is there any way to bypass this limit?

    What are the limits / smallest height, width and largest height, width?

    I am using TLC 5 for windows on a xp machine with 1440x900px screen.


    Please help me out here.

    Kind regards,

    Dennis

    Welcome to the forum Dennis. In most cases you aren't going to be designing at either end of the size spectrum....it is far better to work at a size that you can have the best resolution of images then use a resizer such as Pixresizer to make things smaller and/or send your logo project out to be vectorized or do it yourself. Having a file vectorized is really very inexpensive and there will be no limit to sizing and being able to keep the resolution.

    pixresizer ??

    Hi thank you, :thankyou: ,
    for your answer, but I still need some more info.
    What kind of app do you mean by "pixresizer"?
    What I actually need is an app that can easily resize transparent gif and png, without loosing the transpancy. I really love the quality "The Logo Creator" gives to these formats, especially with the small siz it produces.

    So I need an app that can easily resize the pictures generated by "The Logo Creator" without loosing quality and transparency.

    Can you help me out here??

    b.t.w. What is the largest size which "The Logo Creator" can produce?

    Hope you can help me out?

    Grtz Dennis

    PIXresizer - Free Image Resizer
    PIXresizer is a photo resizing program to easily create web and e-mail friendly versions of your images with reduced file sizes.
    The reduced files are saved in a different folder, so your original images are not altered at all. PIXresizer offers several different resizing methods to choose from and can automatically recognize image sizes to calculate the best fit. In addition, it can convert between image formats (JPEG, GIF, BMP, PNG and TIFF), rotate images, convert to grayscale and resize multiple images in batch mode. A great companion for webmasters and digital photographers.

    Hello, and again...WELCOME to TLC Forum!!

    You can easily resize any LOGO you created with TLC by fabricating the LOGO in a large scale, ie: 800x600 and after you are satisfied with your work, just click on the "export" tab, and then the "more export options" tab. Then grab the lower right corner of the LOGO and drag it to the size you need. Save it as "transparent .png" to your computer. When you click on "done" the LOGO reverts back to it's original size. Be sure to save as a template as well, to be able to work on it in the future if need be. The PIXresizer program is GREAT for optimizing an image for use on the web, ie: smaller file size.

    Is there a program for a mac power pc that does the same as pixresizer. I'm creating a logo for my website and no matter what I do its too small and become distorted when I try to enlarge it in my website.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. Bob T.

    Thanks for the info, but in spite of using these resizer tools the logo, which looks great in the logo creator, when uploaded to my web page is very small (with excellent quality). when I go to resize it for proper viewing it becomes lo-res.
    I actually purchased the Web Graphics Creator hoping that it automatically sizes logo for the web. I was quite disappointed to see it was no different then the Logo Creator. I would hope to see this change in the future.
    I would appreciate any additional ideas you have.
    Thanks, Bob T.

    Simple solution

    Could you not PM the direct image link to one of us? With the large variety of programs and designers at hand, I'm quite sure we could take time to fix this for you. Provide desired dimensions and res...
