6. Images or designs can currently be sized to a maximum width or height of 3000 pixels. Set either the width OR the height of the image. If you have selected the "Preserve Aspect Ratio" option, then your image will be adjusted automatically. If this checkbox is NOT selected, then your new image will match the values entered in the textboxes for "Width" and "Height."
 
7. For best quality, save images in SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics) format. SVG files can be scaled to any size without loss of quality. Once saved, you can open SVG files using a web browser (Chrome, Safari, FireFox) and print them. SVG files can also be opened and printed using Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Photoshop, InDesign, CorelDraw, and the free programs Inkscape and Gimp.
 
8. If saving in PNG or JPEG formats, save a large version of your design and then resize smaller for best results.
