I'm trying to figure out what they call these mouse over popups. When the mouse is over the white plus sign with red background, a text window opens. Thanks for any insights. I'm trying to find this in a wordpress plugin.
I've been busting my arse learning Photoshop so that I can create some good maymays. I'll post a couple and it would be nice to r8 it out of 10.

How would one go about animating their on label with a rotating aluminum can, I've seen it done in a few folios and am stuck on the best approach for this. Thanks in advance!
This is branch of design that is in 3D. So the tools are 3D's Max, Cinema 4D, Maya and free Blender. What you need to do is to create or find a aluminium can model, import it in the program and put your label texture. Afterwards you need to create the animation. And the final step is to render it to video format.

I have an economics degree, a web design service, and I perform 15 minute classical pieces by memory. I think I can figure out how to click and drag some shit and export it in the high quality format or whatever you faggots do
Technically speaking designing is easy you just need to learn how to use software, the complicated part is when it comes to aesthetics, it's something you can learn but not as easy as you might think.
There are plenty of tech-savvy designers that know their software very well sometimes even more than a actual good designer but the stuff they end up making is trash.
How do we stop this?
WHY IS THIS BOARD SO SLOW??? FUCK!!!
ya i kno rite! wna chat? this can be the board's designated meta thread. hey hi what's up? wherever i have found myself on this damm site no1 seemed to appreciate my aesthetic sensibilities like i thot they should. but here... here they do... here they might, rather. i'm still new & i haven't gotten any replies yet. but... there's a certain stillness. a couple cute cult members once said "stillness is the move"... & i truly believe that. twenny seventeen we COMIN UP baby WOOH
Because people treat this place like it's a request board, and request boards don't build regular posters.
Two or three people a day (often ppl who don't browse imageboards at all) come to ask a question, get their answers, and leave until they have another problem.
literally look at the front page right now - anons begging for fonts, anons begging for critiques, anons begging for help, anons begging for advice, and ONE thread that's just an image dump.
you call that a board ?!
Sick frozen pizza design! Would you buy?
Do we have a /stupidfuckingnewbie/ general? I just started learning how to use shit like illustrator today and was wondering if we had a spot for people who are shit to slowly work, improve, and share what they made.
that's like most of the content posted on /gd/, but maybe it would be ok to contain early photoshop farts in one thread
have some books to read:
Hijacking your thread.
I wanna start learning PS just for fucking around. What's the best version to use? I'll be torrenting it anyway so price doesn't matter.
Im completely retarded when it comes to graphic design. Can someone change all the gray in this background into a hex code color #66ffff. Or, at least, a color very similar to that. Thank you
Explain to me how to get Adobe CC programs for free? New PC So my old PC had 2015 cracked versions. Need 2017. thx
Post /pol/ related art.
How do you do this?
those images have shifted red and blue color channels. you can see how they blend into green where they overlap.
Does anyone know how I could make point 1 and 2 align without changing the rectangle's width? Shouldn't I be able to clip to such points while rotating? Why is something this basic this fucking hard? This is my first time using this software and Googling it didn't help for the first time in ages, so I feel like I'm missing something very basic.
I don't understand your request fully to give you clear answer.
Try to use guidelines and other object, like if it was a math homework with paper, ruler and triangles.
Also, rotate tool has a center point which you can position where you want to and rotate it around that center point.
I forgot to add that another set of points needs to match at the bottom. I want to keep the thickness of the middle rectangle equal to 1/5th of the square "z" (same as the top and bottom rectangles), while only rotating it so a side touches the before-mentioned point 1 so that I can adjust the length afterwards, as while doing that my mouse does clip to the anchor (point 1).
My only problem is the lack of clipping while rotating, and the fact I don't know the angle I need otherwise.
How much does getting an entry level job in the field suck?
And how much will the job suck?
As long as you're actually getting to design shit. I was hired as a graphic designer for a vitamin company and all I got to design was the email blast. The rest was printing already existing label designs and data entry. I left after 3 weeks once I found something better.
Currently working as a graphic designer for a nutrition supplement manufacturer. It's not where I want to stay long term, because I've learned I hate the health/supplement industry, but at least I get to design for clients instead of doing data entry like at the last job.
i used to. i worked my ass off from high school on to get the best training and build my portfolio
i got an entry level job in print adverting (what i had hoped to do) and was soon "managing" the shop (in quotes because although i did literally everything and kept the shop running smoothly, i was never promoted or anything)
i did huge successful runs (ie millions) for companies you've heard of and i never earned more than $30000. it was absolutely soul crushing and after 6 years of it i quit and never wanted to touch a printer again
my personal opinion is that too many people are willing to work for free for their to be any competition any more. that's why you see bad, amateurish design everywhere. it's the norm because it's free.
it's sad and frustrating but i've had a few years and a new unrelated career change that i love (and make money at) so now i can take a few design jobs a year that i'm legit interested in and i'm much happier
