I have recently got my Linux distro to a point where I think its stable enough to start working with Blender again without fear of everything messing up on me, so I was wondering if you could give me some advice.
I used to be heavily into photography, and have loads of cool images that I would like to use/base textures or reference pictures on, so I have decided to scan them all into my computer and categorise them nicely so I have some personal resources to play with.
My problem is, I’m not sure what file formats, resolutions or bit-depths etc I should store them as so that I don’t have to redo them all at a later point because I didn’t store them correctly. Examples:
- They are good enough quality to use in very nice renders eventually, with no loss.
- They won’t take up my entire 120GB HDD.
- In a format that is the most flexible for working with Blender & GIMPI’m tempted to save them all as high quality as I can, but hopefully all you out there with more experience can show me the light.
