The Digital Comic Creator's Toolbox

Today were going to go over some of the tools that every Digital Comic Book Publisher/Creator/Provider should think about keeping handy, like in an on line tool box ready to open up and go to work when they are ready to release their next comic.

WATERMARKER


Not everyone has/uses Adobe Photoshop or other advanced image editing software. Some comics are still done with pen & ink and then scanned in when everything is just right. This tool will allow you to watermark those images you put online that can be downloaded for free rather than purchased through your web sites store. Your web site does have a store...right?

WaterMark.ws is a modern tool that allows you to watermark your photos online. The power of this tool outperforms every other downloadable watermark software on the market. It offers features like batch processing, resizing, image compression, text and image watermarking with transparency and organizing your photos just to name a few. No download. No installation!

COMIC BOOK TRAILER










You'll want one, you know you will. They're just so damn cool.

Part 1 ANIMATION


Glicker will set you up with the first half of your trailer: the animation.
Gickr.com lets you instantly create Animated GIF online, free, right now! Just upload pictures or grab them from your Flickr.

Part 2 SOUND




Looplabs will set you up with the second half of your trailer: sound.

The HYPE MACHINE


Putting your digital comic online just isn't enough. You've got to let the world know all about it as well. That means icons, tags, banners, email signatures and more. Why not let HYPLET.com take care of it all.

RKB - I hadn't thought about that, but it's a pretty good idea. Thank you!
