A lot of quilters and fiber artists are printing their own designs on fabric for use in their own work. Our final lesson covered why and how to prepare images for test prints from print-on-demand companies, such as Spoonflower. I selected a photo of a stamped swatch I had created and a photo of a poppy sent to me by a friend. Then I made two color adjustments to each to see what other effects I could achieve.
I placed the test prints side-by-side on a single file because printing companies print on a fat quarter no matter how many images you submit. So the more images you submit for testing to see if you like the the color results, the more efficient and the less expensive. Great tip!
