For the comic, would you rather have a scrolling pdf as a single deviation, or a series of multiple images that are linked together?

I think it would be better as multiple pages. Whenever there's a scroller I always lose my spot. So if it's not too much work, being able to bookmark my place or keep track of it would be great.

multiple pages is a lot of work, especially with 16 pages . e____e

If you are uploading it here i guess scrolling is best, it's clunky navigatig links on deviantart. Even though i prefer page by page instead of scrolling.

I also think page by page is a bit clunky, thus why I was thinking the pdf version

why not both? post the PDF in the main gallery, and post the separate pages in Scraps.

to me it doesn't matter, by the way.

That is far too much work. Plus I do not want two versions floating around to keep travk of.it is bad enough considering multiple sites.

I think a pdf would be more convenient, especially for people with slower connections. But I guess some people will prefer having multiple images. You can't please everyone unfortunately. :shrug:

Multiple images also takes time to upload and I'd rather upload them all at once and not have a million links to add and keep track of. ;__;

Though... I think I'll do the PDF. Everyone should have acrobat reader anyway. :L If anything save the file and reopen in your browser since all or most browsers can open them.

I think you have to pay for Acrobat, but Adobe Reader is completely free. xD  I agree with you; if you upload loads of images at once then some people will probably read one or two pages then give up. It might be backwards as well, depending if you have deviations set to newest or oldest first. Or some people might just delete them from their inbox if there's a lot.... :B

If you want, there's that motion book thing but I'm sure you can just upload static pages instead of playing with the other features.

Even so, most internet browsers open PDFs. I did consider the motion book! I am not sure if I can upload static pages. I will look into it more.

And yes, i think if i just uploaded multiple images, prople would just delet them.

Could you make it a .cbr file?  (CBR being a file that is opened through many free platforms designed specifically for comics.)

I don't have winrar and don't intend to get it JUST for this purpose.

Ah, yeah.  That makes sense.  (In case you didn't know, it is a free program.)  Either way, the file format doesn't matter much to me, I'd be happy with anything.  XD

Technically it is not free. It has just been so wide spread, people think it is and it has become a "nagware" instead.

Yeah, but they could turn the nagging off if they wanted to, force you to pay or stop using their product.

Either way, i do not do that sort of thing. I either buy the program or find something else. I might reconsider later, but not right now.

There's www.7-zip.org/ which is open source.  But yeah, I guess I'm just trying to help with options.  Can't wait to see it, whatever you decide. ^^

My point is the original is not free. It was not intended free. I know where to go to get it as an open source even before you linked it, but it does not mean I do or will get it simply because I can.

I apply it to other things like Sai or PS. Yeah, I know where to go to get it, but it does not mean I actually do it.

Thank you though. I appreciate the gesture.
