Printing your Bryce artwork?

Note that you can print on photo paper at home on a home printer using ink, but it is not the same as a photograph which uses chemicals.

The normal home printing will easily come off with water and is not usually permanent. And the quality of the image itself may differ from your actual art.

You do not really need any of these software programs to use Bryce, but once you export your Bryce picture, you may want to do some post work on the image. You will find that most people that use Bryce also have a graphics program.Here are some of the more popular software programs used.

 

If you would like to change your digital Bryce images into a hard copy photograph, there are many online services that can do it, from Kodak to Walmart.

If you have a JPEG file made into a photo, you need to make or render it large enough. The photos of course are usually on Kodak paper and are usually glossy, except for 16x20 and larger, which most times have a mat finish. Here are the pixel sizes for photograph sizes. (these are just guides, check with the service you intend to use to be sure).

  • 4x6 Print - 640x480 pixels
  • 5x7 Print - 1024 x 768 pixels
  • 8x10 Print - 1536 x 1024 pixels
  • 16x20 Print - 1600 x 1200 pixels
  • 20x30 Print - 1600 x 1200 pixels
  • Wallet Size - 320 x 240 Pixels

 

 

*The major difference between Photoshop Elements and the full Photoshop7 or CS applications ( besides the $ 100.00 vs. $ 600.00 price) is that Elements does not have CMYK support. If you are going to do work for a printing project or professional print company, you will want the full program. If you are going to primarily use JPEG's and photos, or web based RGB work, the Elements is fine.

This web page is to help provide information for Bryce users. Most of the links and content are specific to that software. Usually, if you are like me, when you first get Bryce ( I started with version 2 back around 2000), you play around with it, make a few quick scenes or weird abstracts. Then later you want more, so you think, just what can I do with this program?

Well, that is what this page is about. A short, one page start, to give you a general idea where to seek some help, get some things to spark an idea or project, and show you what others have done with Bryce. There are hundreds of web sites on 3D, so this is just the tip of a very large iceberg. But it's enough to hopefully, wipe away some frustration, and give you confidence with the program. It's way more than just a scene/terrain maker. Even if you are a long time user, you may find this page useful as a quick links page.

Enjoy!

 

Yahoo hosts several Bryce Groups. These Bryce Groups are dedicated to the discussion of tips, hints, how-to's and related information about Bryce and related utility programs (PSP, Photoshop, KPT etc).
