  1. I don't get this at all! I'm an illustrator looking to draw my cover photo and have it show up on a large computer with no pixelation. if was to draw something 4cm by 10.8cm surely that would be waaay to small and would just pixelate? Should I double it so that the proportions are maintained?

    1. Yes you can do it. But one better option is that you can set a higher DPI for the images that you are creating. Normal value of DPI is 72. But you can set it to 150 DPI and then your images will not pixelate.
