Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Can I commission an AMGC artist for work unrelated to the NADC or Cybernations?
A: Of course! It's up to artist discretion to take on any jobs both inside and outside of the AMGC.
Q: What programs do you use?
A: Many of our designers use the GNU Image Manipulation Program (GIMP) or use Adobe Photoshop. Some others use Microsoft Paint. It's all about the personal preference and limitations of the artist.
Q: What types of files do you use?
A: It depends on the work. We mostly use .png files for standard web images, .jpg's are used to limit the file size as they tend to compress more and .gif's are used for animated files. Some file extensions may not work in certain contexts and for some file hosts, so we use different formats to suit those purposes.
