I have a couple of pizza businesses & I do my own digital menu's. I'm using HD resolution using jpg for the menu but was wondering if anyone had any other ideas on how to make it better quality for a tv?

 

I am currently doing a menu refresh was hoping to update the quality of display for all three tv's. I sent through the old menu below as an example of the menu (I will be using alot better graphics this time round)

TV specs are set in stone, so unless you plan on upgrading your hardware at all venues and/ or your current screens do support higher resolutions already, you are stuck with HD and the actual resolution won't improve. The rest are just design problems like the screens being overstuffed and having the most terrible color combinations and text treatments, but that's not a technical question. You really have to read some books, study other design examples or hire a pro to avoid all the bad stuff.

Thanks for the reply. Yeh when I created these first three menu screens I was self taught (still am)

I just noticed images didn't look great on my "cheap" tv screens but decided to redo the menu's in premier pro which I started today. I am just experimenting at the moment but I did this test today and put it on my smart tv at home and looks clear which was my goal. Just need to clean up the design and obvisouly keep learning my way around these programs

Dessert pizza? Now that sounds dangerous... Focus on legibility to reduce the time decoding the menu. Use fonts optimised for legibility. NEVER overlay text on a graphic. Avoid the white border around red text.  -- things that work on paper aren't necessarily great on screen, though keeping the general design concepts of your paper menus does carry the branding over, and may save time for people who already checked out the paper menu but can't remember the names of stuff. Check out what the big guys do on screen - they have tuned it to both sell and reduce queueing time.

comfortable getting around adobe. I have attached the start of my sides
