cheat sheet for graphic makers


  • images that are 245px wide can only be 400px tall or they become blurry
  • images that are 500px wide can only 750px tall or they will become blurry
  • images that are not 160, 245, or 500px wide will be blurry no matter what.
  • EXCEPTIONS TO THIS RULE ARE PHOTOGRAPHY, ART, ETC. Because you will be clicking it to make it bigger anways.
  • saving as a png is a popular edit choice
  • saving as a jpeg is popular for uploading fan sightings, art, photography, etc.
  • always sharpen images you’ve reduce the size of a little bit. it makes it clearer.
  • never ‘enlarge’ a photo to fit a bigger size. it won’t turn out nice.
  • icons for tumblr avatars are 64x64 not 100x100
  • always use 72 dpi {resolution} for edits that aren’t going to be printed.
  • always use 300 dpi for things that will be printed / full viewed at a larger size.
  • the largest size tumblr will save is 1920px-3000px {give or take some}. So upload your UHQ photos to another site and link in the caption to it. {just to be safe}
  • gifs can only be 160px, 245px, or 500px wide.
  • commonly gifsets include either 245x140px gifs or 245x245px gifs.
  • 160px and 245px wide gifs can be up to 2mb large in filesize and still ‘move’.
  • 500px gifs are normally 280px {give or take some} tall.
  • 500px wide gifs can only be 1mb large or they will not move.
  • do not borrow gifs from other peoples sets to make your own. this is stealing.
  • last but not least, NEVER take someones edit / manip /etc to make your own ‘edit’ if they haven’t given you permission. that’s stealing.

I haven’t seen OB yet because I’m working so I just scroll through my dash supper fast at any sign of it.

Cinderella never asked for a prince. She asked for a night off and a dress.

Can somebody break this down for me? Why’s it so powerful? What exactly is it saying?

Wow, this is great!  I never really thought about it this way before, but it’s actually true. And it makes me feel really bad for all the Cinderella haters out there (I know they exist, there was that one article by the mom who doesn’t like Disney Princesses and dislikes Ella most of all).

I think we’re so used to Disney girls getting a prince as part of their happy ending that we confuse this with wanting a prince from the beginning. (I know “Cinderella” is bigger than the Disney version but it’s what I am familiar with, so let’s focus on that XD)

Cinderella isn’t dreaming some impossible dream.  She wants to be treated decently and have the chance to find her own happiness.  And even in the bad situation she’s in, she does her best to be cheerful and good, because she has faith things will get better.

Cinderella is denied the status of her birth (forced to work as a servant for her stepmother and stepsisters) and mistreated, and clearly isolated from everyone else but the family (she’s making friends with mice and birds, come on).  She dreams of a better life, but she tells her animal friends that she “can’t tell” them what she’s been dreaming, because if you tell a wish it won’t come true.  Aside from this, she’s pretty practical, though.

"I know it isn’t easy," Cinderella says to her dog, knowing that he’s been dreaming of chasing her stepmother’s sadistic cat, "but at Ieast we should try to get along together."

And in fact, she doesn’t actually ask for a night off and dress. If things had gone as Ella wanted, she would have gone to the ball with her stepmother and stepsisters because she finished all her chores and updated her birth mother’s old gown to fit her.  Ella’s not asking for anything when her fairy godmother shows up — she has stopped believing in the power of dreams almost entirely at that point. 

Her godmother tells her she can’t go to the ball like this (all dressed in rags and crying), and Ella says “The ball? Oh, but I’m not—” and her godmother says of course she is.

"Even miracles take a little time."

Her godmother isn’t there to machinate things so Cinderella can marry a prince.  She’s there to restore Cinderella’s faith.

And it works.

i think it’s a universal truth that everyone in our generation takes pluto’s losing its planetary status as a personal offense


pluto is smaller than russia. why did we ever even consider it a planet?

I went for a jog and was feeling great but then I stopped at one of those exercise park things and tried to do crunches and almost feel of the bench trying and that was when I remembered that I’m as fit as a potato.

The Lumineers “Stubborn Love“

She’ll lie and steal, and cheat, and beg you from her knees
Make you think she means it this time
She’ll tear a hole in you, the one you can’t repair
But I still love her, I don’t really care

game of costumes: part 10


if the broadway and theatre community dislikes bootlegs so much and don’t want people filming their shows they need to work on making theatre a more accessible form of media by filming shows professionally because you know they talk a lot about being a very open welcoming community but don’t do anything to make that community welcoming to people who can’t afford to see shows or people who live in rural areas and are literally unable to attend shows at all
