I'm interested in graphic design and was wondering if any of you had any ways or advice for a beginner to become okay at photoshop?
I have been doing really small stupid stuff for about a year now and wanted to start getting serious with it.
watch this seminars (the more you watch the better) also on youtube find people who make photoshop contests (sometimes they offer money) and try to come up with something.
i also learned a lot watching other ppl making photo manipulations / photobashing / timelapses etc. (just search for it and try to learn the workflow)
Howdy everyone, I am in pretty desperate need of help.
My computer died and I have to finish a flyer in two days. I have a backup of the photoshop file and wanted to now continue on the university computers (Windows 7 and Photoshop CC 2015), but I am using a custom font and don't have admin rights to install it...
Please tell me there is a workaround!
I am thankful for any help, cheers.
None who have/use photoshop or powerful computers that I could borrow. I studying in a completely different field and just started doing a bit of design stuff as a hobby years ago, no other strings attached really.
Also it's not a paid project or anything, but I committed and can't let those people down. Any ideas how to use fonts without installing them?
>Any ideas how to use fonts without installing them?
you could try online "font samples" where basically you type your text and see how it looks. and then just take a screenshot however i doubt it would work.
maybe try /wsr/ you can post the text there and someone could send you an jpg/png with your text and font.
Can someone turn this white instead of black?
Where I can find a database of free fonts, that can be distributed without contacting the author (like OFL license)?

A while ago I decided to try and make a shitty ARG that involved a gaming channel. In order to sell the game channel gimmick, I decided to actually apply some of the things I learned in basic graphic design and make a convincing logo. What I ended up with was this. Nowadays I've left the fake game channel to rot, but I can't help but wonder if I can at least get something from this dumb logo in the form of a critique and learn something from it.
In short, just tell me if there's anything salvageable from this. I will include a resized version of the logo and the original thumbnail
How hard is it to get caught using a font you didn't pay for in commercial use?
What's that entire process like? Do you just say fuck it and use whatever?
It's more than 50 years old so fuck em
guy who created helvetica is dead
its so popular no one gives a fuck
just dont go and use some unique trend font from 2016 without paying because you could get caught out.
The classic fonts are all pretty much open for use
General help thread?
Any tips on how I could make a photograph into this screen-toned effect?
Feel free to ask your own questions too.
I'm trying to do halftones by changing mode to bitmap and I'm experimenting with it but it keeps turning out looking really ugly with those Xs everywhere
Could you help me to find this font ?
Can't find the name...
So Im making a sprite sheet of a bunch of different interchangeable gun parts for a game. I drew up each cell on seperate layers and saved it as a .pdn, I went into infranview and exported the layers as seperate equal sized files as .png. Now I want to arrange all the fiiles into a grid. Is there any tool I can use to avoid placing each file manually? Like just import 30 files of equal size and have them automatically form a grid?

Please let me know! Also if you guys have any resources that could help me out a bit that would be great.
I dabbled in web design for about a year. Not anymore, but I'm mentioning that just to mean I have a little experience with it. You can do without scripting but I wouldn't really want to. jQuery is so powerful and open to innovation that I wouldn't want to pass it up. I didn't do a lot with it but I remember having a jQuery tool that helps in creating the codes.
I had a portfolio site up for years that I built from scratch but I JUST took it down like 3 months ago because I found a full time, long term design job and I wont be needing a portfolio up for many years to come.
Believe it or not, our Phonetics teacher asked us to make a meme using a particular sound of the phonetic alphabet. I've got "ɒ", the one in "dog" or "from"I'm not imaginative enough for this, can you help me?
>"I'm not imaginative enough for this"
Wow- unless you're not a designer (you didn't explicitly say so), you're going to be flipping burgers or digging ditches with an attitude like that.
>Believe it or not, our Phonetics teacher asked us to make a meme
I don't believe the stupidity of having a grade dependent on forcing a meme.
>can you help me?
No. Try >>>/wsr/
This is obviously a rough draft, but I was thinking something along these lines would work.
See it's kind of a play on words, or sounds I guess.
ɒ, according you you makes the awww sound, as in "dog".
So I put "say ɒ" like what the doctors or whoever says when they want you to open your mouth. But this time its a woman getting a facial with her mouth open, and the "ɒ" looks like a tongue sticking out receiving the semen. So it's telling her to say ɒ, while showing her tongue sticking out, with the symbol over her mouth.
I think this could really work for you. But obviously touch it up a bit, because it's going to have to look like graphic design, this is just a rough draft you can go off of
Could anyone pls photoshop this
Thanks for any serious opinions!
None of them really stand out as being better than the other the exception being the last one, I think you need to work more on your font choice especially with the "comic-sans-esque" font you've used in a few of the logos, if I were you I would be focusing on developing your last one further
What the hell am I looking at?
There's such a mishmash of styles and weights and choices in each of these, I don't feel any cohesion in a single one but the last, and the only reason the last is okay is because it's so generic and uninspired.
If you're making a logo like this, you have to think about how it would be used in alternate applications as well. I'm assuming the most obvious would be a standalone "VD," which most of these logos wouldn't work for either. Think about how you would design something that could be used in a variety of ways and contexts, then that should help in finding some consistency and picking a direction to take the entire logo.
Along with that, if you're wanting to go with this dish concept and really push it, think about how you could incorporate that kind of iconography as a part of your design. It'll help give the logo some actual character and make it memorable instead of just being yet another generic wordmark.
Anybody know the easiest way to smooth out these squiggly edges with GIMP?
What are some God-Tier examples of UI/UX design? I need some inspiration.
