I'm trying to get some projects done at home but its been a real problem getting anywhere without Photoshop
I used up my free trial and I'm pretty poor so i cant really pay for the monthly subscription
I know there are free alternatives out there, but i know the program like the back of my hand and cant see myself letting it go
if anyone out there would be cool enough to help me out with pirating it i would appreciate it a ton
via links or directions would be great :^)
tl;dr " I need help Pirating Photoshop"
Go on any decent torrent site like kickasstorrents and find the most popular photoshop torrent (current if possible) and follow the directions provided with the torrent.
CC may be somewhat more difficult than CS6 to crack but it's worth it.
To what extent to I need to kill myself/start over?
First of all, there too much details.
Do you know what minimalist is?
It's basically the for-front of modern design, using little to no detail to create a visually stunning logo. 
If you need more insight, see half the posts on this board, otherwise here's an example of your improved logo.
Using basic geometries shape I outline the face of the lizigator and using basic, sans-serif type (that means no spikey hard line). Next time do not try too hard and make a minimal logos.
Depends on what it is and how you are going to use it.
As a corporate logo it sucks ass.
As a clothing brand it's ok. Would try to simplify the colors and make the mark and type work separately to ensure more options when it comes to clothing.
I'm trying to construct and write an illustrated (creative) book for blind children.
I need creative input as much as possible, and everything must make sense as well.
Right now I'm troubled on what's my story going to be.
Things I plan on including:
Right now though, Im trying to focus on what should I put as story
Shit or Visionary?
In a vacuum, I don't think the Nike, Starbucks, Mercedes or Coke logos are bad, but I don't think they work with the brand for various reasons, mostly what >>260319 said (especially for Coke and Disney).
The Apple logo is regressive, the Target logo doesn't really say anything, the Disney logo just doesn't look right and the FedEx logo tries too hard to preserve the arrow of its predecessor.
Please tell me why this is shit
also sorry for century gothic below, its temporary solution
You could work on the bulb a bit. In the thumbnail it's passably recognizable, but it doesn't hold up well at larger sizes, because it doesn't do a good job of implying a screw-in base. The "production" part looks kind of odd just centered like that. I'd try setting it at a larger size and make an attempt to integrate it with the Just light, or I would set it slightly smaller and alight it flush left after where the descender in the g would be.
I think the bulb would be nice on top of the 'i' instead of it being incorporated into a 'g', since it currently looks more like "Just Lioht" to me. You could also try putting the bulb to a bit of a slant, but I don't know if that would work as well.

Okay, since I don't have time to dredge through the internet. I come to you begging help: If scrubby zoom is stuck on, even though it is unchecked, is there a setting or preference somewhere that is causing this? I zoom in and out a lot and I'm at the verge of throwing the computer through my window.
A word of advice to newbies
You don't need illustrator to make logos. I've been in the industry 13 years today and use photoshop for every single one. My portfolio runs as high as international technology businesses and financial consultants. Leaders in their fields but of course I won't reveal their names because I don't need nor care about your opinion on them.
Morale of the story, make your logos in whatever you want. Skill over software.
Anyone got any tips on using first names as a logo? I'm having a hard time coming up with something which would not look something like Gucci or like that.
Just started using Illustrator again and I've got a quick question:
I was trying to create multiple, differently colored traces of one image and turn those into an object, then export that object into another file (which I have open in another tab in Ill.). The problem is that for some reason, Illustrator changes the colors of those individual traces after moving them.
Does anybody have an idea how to fix that?
Are you moving them between Illustrator files? I'd be double-checking what your colour settings are and making sure they're the same. Generally, if you're working in an RGB colourspace and moving into a CMYK colourspace, the colours may not appear as vibrant as they do in RGB because they'll be outside the colour's gammut range, and will instead look less saturated/duller.
Hopefully that makes sense!
No worries! Its an easy mistake to make and its even easier to fix. If you are planning on printing whatever it is you're working on though, your colours will be dull.
But if you're work is going to be online/digital, then its no worries!
Does anyone know of any good resources on motion? Easy eases and the like. Something like the Material Design guidelines on animation.
Is the Canon iX6820 the best /gd/ printer under $200?
Should I go Epson?
check the current photo printer bundle deals. Then search for those specific models on eBay. People usually buy the deals for the laptop/dSLR and sell the printer for cheap.
I got a $500 13x19 photo printer for $150 this way.
I'm using font in pic related for my artist's logo (it looks more decent than you're probably imagining, at least I hope).
I'd like to get permission to use it but I can't find the original source or the author or anything like that. Only thing i know it's "Free for personal use" according to dafont. So that's a no until i ask the author i guess?
Also, although I used the font for (heavy) inspiration, I re-made the result in Illustrator, varying it a bit to suit muh needs. But it still looks rather similar.
Thanks and excuse my retardness.
As long as you're not sending the font file, you'll probably be fine. And if you just recreated it in Illustrator, then you're golden. The license is literally only for the use of the font file itself.
I am searching for a site that i can download packs of reference photos and royalty free images. Can you help me find something like that?
