New uni stuff on cafepress

My wife astutely pointed out to me that, although the unit price is
higher, $3 for a bumper sticker is less money spent than $150 to print
100 stickers.

With that in mind, I decided, after all, to use cafepress, at least for
now. My store's url: http://www.cafepress.com/steveyo

My stuff has either my uni guy, or my new...wait for it...*Kokopelli

Also prominently featured is the slogan "UNICYCLE! LIKE A BIKE WITHOUT
THE TRAINING WHEEL"

There is no signature on the shirt, if that's what alias means.
But (after I did a bit of googling) the "anti-aliased" Seager meant is
more probably 'this'
(http://www.schorsch.com/kbase/glossary/aliasing.html).
Seager: The designs are all monochrome bmp files. So I believe they
are aliased, not anti-aliased.

chosen, good guess but you are entirely wrong, anti-aliasing is a
graphical process, im guessing it goes someway to removing the
'jaggies' at the edge of the picture

Of the things you say, Max, that is just about the least rude.

It's OK if you don't like the designs. I guess I hadn't found any yet
exactly like I wanted and that's OK, too.

anti-aliased is something used in 3d rendering, and fonts, it smooths
the edges of pixilated objects/images, so instead of seeing a staircase
of pixles going down the side of that box on your 32x32 res image, it
automaticaly smooths the edges out, de pixalizes in a way, but keeps
the res of the image at 32x32, this is helpfull with things like fonts,
which already have standards for sizes, which are often considered very
pixilated today, and video games, where high res, textures can really
kill your video cards memory.

As for flat images, I think he's just asking if you'll smooth the edges
a bit because they are a wee bit pixilated.

Thank you for the good explanation.

Any suggestions how to "anti-alias" the pics? I have a freeware
photo-editor with which I can "blur" the image, but not sure that's the
same.

i don't know what you used to make the images, but paint.NET has an easy
option to turn on anti-aliasing when you're drawing. it just creates
gray pixles to fill out the lines.
