Hey, I’m looking to get into creating a custom template but was wondering if anyone could help me on fitting my image. I’m not looking to do anything fancy, and so my plan was to take an image off of wall base, as they have a ton of high res images, and simply put it under a template. The image I chose has a resolution of 1600x1200, so I thought I would be fine fitting it to a standard TE template. My fears of the image fitting were quelled when I opened the image in Photoshop and it measured over 22 inches lengthwise, and over 16" height-wise, while the template was around 12 inches by 8.5. When I attempted to import the hi res image into photoshop though by using duplicate layer —> background layer, the image was about 1/3 the size of the template.
What am I doing wrong, exactly? Is this the proper way to import an image onto a template at its highest quality?
Thanks in advance, too! Along with slagcoin, the forums here have been immensely helpful to someone new to the arcade stick scene.
