  1. Thanks a lot! This really helps me out 👍👍👍 So if I understand correctly I just have to find out the requested dpi by the wallpaper printing company, and then I can calculate the maximum size I can enlarge my pattern tiles to by dividing the pixels by the dpi? Another question: it seems one of my repeat pattern wallpaper designs turns out to be quite a bit smaller than I was hoping. So I think I’ll just vectorise that pattern tile, so I can make the scale of the wallpaper design a lot bigger. Do you see any problems with that? (apart from huge files). Thanks a million for helping me out!
  2. But does the dpi not factor in at all then? The 3000 x 3000 pixel tile has a dpi of 300, and the 5000 x 5000 pixel tile has a dpi of 600. That’s why I doubled the 33 inches. But this is not correct apparently?
  3. Got it! Is the following correct? (math is not my strong point) So I can PRINT the 3000 x 3000 pixels 300 dpi tile at approximately 50 cm. square 150 dpi. as wallpaper. And I can PRINT the 5000 x 5000 pixels 600 dpi tile at approximately 166 cm square with 150 dpi as wallpaper? Thank you for your time!
  4. Thanks a lot! Does that mean I can enlarge my 5000 x 5000 pixel 600 dpi tile to 20.000 x 20.000 pixels 150 dpi if I wanted to? I am sometimes confused by the whole dpi thing, as some of my files with the same dpi and measurements look much crisper than others.
  5. Thanks a lot for your input, but I already made my own watercolour wallpaper designs like described in the article. Now I just need to know how big I can enlarge one pattern tile so it still looks good on a wall, so I can decide on what scale to print my wallpaper designs. Can you tell me how large I can enlarge a 3000 x 3000 pixel 300 dpi pattern tile so it still looks good on a wall? I have the same question for my 5000 x 5000 pixel 600 dpi design. Thanks a lot for your help!
  6. Well, I am talking about actual paper wallpaper to cover a wall, the wallpaper would probably measure 280 cm. high and say 300 cm. wide, but this can vary.
  7. Hi! I made repeat pattern tiles in Affinity Photo, and want to make wallpaper out of them. Could anyone tell me how big I can resize these tiles, so I know how big I can make the pattern tiles in the wallpaper? The pattern tiles are: 3000 x 3000 pixels 300 dpi 5000 x 5000 pixels 600 dpi Thank you very much!
  8. Hi, I've uploaded the documents. Thank you very much for helping me out! I'm trying to make repeat paterns out of hand painted art. But this problem with lines at the brick seams keeps popping up no matter what method I try. I would be eternally grateful if you can help me fix this problem!!! Kind regards, Karina
  9. Hi, I'm trying to create a brick for a repeat pattern, but I keep getting these annoying lines when I try lining up the bricks of my repeat pattern (seee image). I used a hand painted watercolour painting I made for the pattern of the brick, and made the repeat pattern in Affinity Photo using the 'affine' function. What went wrong??? The lines do not disappear when I export the image.
  10. Well, I did make the fill layer in C100M100Y100K100, then double checked with the colour picker and all was fine. Then I set the layer to screen and checked with the colour picker again, and the wrong CMYK figures came up (again!!!!). Those numbers have been haunting me 🤣 I tried several times, and the same thing kept happening. Maybe there’s a mistake in the Procreate psd file... I worked around all this by now as I described above by making a C0M0Y0K0 swatch in Affinity, exporting that to Procreate to make the drawing in the right CMYK values, and exporting back to Affinity. But, it didn’t work with a black C100M100Y100K100 swatch, the same bewitched Procreate numbers kept popping up... I think Procreate can’t handle those numbers, they’re too high so it automatically corrects them to a lower CMYK number. That’s the only explanation I can think of anyway... Thanks a lot for your advise!
  11. Thanks a lot, that sounded very sensible, but unfortunately this didn’t work either... In the end I switched things around and made a C0M0Y0K0 swatch in AP, exported that to Procreate, and made the Snowflake design in white, so I could set the background to the desired black CMYK value in Affinity. A bit of a hassle, but unfortunately it didn’t work to set the right CMYK values in Procreate. Why it DOES work to set the right values in Affinity, export that to Procreate to make the design in the right values, and then export it back to Affinity is beyond me, but hey it works. Affinity is definitely better with CMYK values then Procreate, that’s for sure! Thanks for helping me find a solution! 😀
  12. Thanks for your help! This didn’t work unfortunately. I think I should clarify that the background is white, and the layer with the snowflake drawing is black. I need to change the CMYK values of the black snowflake layer. (I did it this way because of the printing process, the black will be printed on gold paper, so the white will eventually be gold.)
  13. Thanks for your reply. The problem for me was as well that our wifi couldn’t manage sending files that big via wetransfer unfortunately. I live in an apartment in the city, so yeah. A bit of a wifi war now that everyone is working from home...
