Where can I find all the ligatures in the world? What's the name of this encyclopedia or website?

>>
any digram is a ligature if you're brave enough
>>
the only ligatures you should care about are already listed in wikipedia, and even most of them are shit nobody cares about
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Typographic_ligature#Ligatures_in_Unicode_.28Latin_alphabets.29
æ, ff, ffi, fi, œ, ß and st are the only relevant ones
>>

not even remotely complete. When I found an 11th century manuscript on my shelf and did my research, I found books (on google.books) listing thousands of ligatures for a single font alone! (beneventana in this case)

I'm running GIMP on linux with g'mic but for some reason my hilarious memes can't come into being because the shitty blend (seamless) just moves the face to the side and cuts it. Other blends make no visible change to the image. Anyone know what I'm doing wrong?

not a request i think, couldn't find anything on google

thanks anyway

Dude, seriously....invest the money in a decent photoshop licence. I know it's expensive, but gimp not worth your time.

Once upon a time I used gimp and inkscape too. But it's just way too complicated, the tutorials are way too complicated and pretty much the only advantage (except for the o so useful option to export pictures as c source code) is that it's free.

Also Linux is a nice system. But Gnome and (probably) ubuntu are probably not the system set up you want to use if you want to get decent driver support from your graphics adapter/card.

I personally use windows 10, which (undoubtly) is a disease in itself, but offers a lot of drivers for all sorts of shit. I mean, you can even use a mapped guitaer hero controler to draw stuff if you really want to. And you don't need to comple some obscure packages.

I paid for my CS6 design and Web premium US licence around 480€. For the range of programs you get I consider that an acceptable price (except Adobe Acrobat Pro X that piece of shit failure of a program)

None. There are so many free alternatives, why would I pay for something so irrelevant?

Because it is relevant for design teams?

>>306393
Don't be so dense, dude. Nobody's paying for that shit. There are dozens of free (and good) mock-ups all over the internet.

Hey I have been working on a Logo and I'm no graphic designer by anymeans so I'm hoping to get input or a critique. I like the silhouette but I don't know what to do with it from here. Its a TGD all combined together.

The attached picture is the mono black silhouette and a collor gradient one with a shadow.

HELP PLEASE

Photoshop.

you could also go to the channels tab and move the red and blue channels to the left and right, respectively.

Anyone know anything about commercial printers?
I'm looking to buy one to sell all types of high quality prints, magazines, posters, packaging etc.
Which are the best? My budget is 2k
12 posts and 1 images submitted.
>>
I've worked in a print centre before mate, and I can tell you that for 2k you'll be able to do very little.

The type of printer that will do magazine pages will be different to one that can do posters and packaging, etc. They are dedicated machines that cost anywhere from £800 (An A3 laser printer) to £5000+ (A wide format Poster-printer).

Then you need to consider toners, inks, paper stocks, binding machines and materials, the space to put this shit, etc.
>>
>>305757
i don't know much about types of printers, would you recommend any that would be good enough for like just printing a3 posters, up to 300dpi, different tones and paper.
>>
>>305759
nah, don't remember specific models, soz. If I were you I'd work in a printshop for a few weeks, there are a lot of subtleties to it that will help you; right now it sounds like you're fumbling in the dark a bit. Never a good spot to start a business from.

This is the 3rd year since i got a job for printing preparations.
2 since i found out im colorblind and that a kangaroo cant be green.
Im earning for a living doing a job i shouldnt be doing in the first place but i guess the computer age is responsible for that.
I only need to worry about 4 plates and CMYK, i have a sampling tool for everything else.
Got a few close calls with the brown and green shades i never noticed and once didnt know which tin bucket of paint i was supposed to ask for since workers only smear a tiny sample on top of it, since we get the cheapest one whose labels fall off.
Anyone else here in the job who is colorblind?

I'm a chemistry student, I need to be able to tell which color the solution has taken on.
As for amateur GD, I usually work in black n white. Sometimes shades of red and blue.
Making something brown will fail horribly.
>>
>>305188
You mix orange with blue, or red with green, or purple with yellow.
I have no idea why brown isnt just black mixed with red but i have no concept of colors, i see mostly saturation instead of a color of a color, if that makes any sense.
I think there is an app that can show you the RGB or CMYK values. Once you learn which mixture of which values (basic clolors) give which colors, its easy to know color.
>>
>>305185
sounds rough anon.
however, i think the fact that print is very formulamatic is in your favor. Its really about knowing your numbers and what colors they produce.

not sure how legit these are for accurate color, but might help.

I'm a Graphic Design student. What is the best laptop for this field? I've read that Macbooks are and no one in the field will take you seriously if you use anything else.

No one IN the field actually cares if you're on a Mac or PC. They care about what you can do with the software; the computer you're using is practically irrelevant.
>>
>>302751
Yeah macs are better even if I hate Apple, 90% of the softwares I'm using doesn't even exist on Windows. And they're better at multitasking. But if someone disregard your work only because you're on a PC, you're better off.

How do you get inspired about anything? Specially when designing layouts for sites? I start doing them and I get sick of them because 90% of all the shit out there is the same garbage as everything else. Even the sites where they offer inspiration for design is all the fucking same as well it's all so uninspiring.

Read books and look at art.

Think outside the box, when you look at other peoples work and try to find inspiration, don't copy obviously but look for a variation and your style into play.

I'm not a web designer but when I work it works for me every time.

I drive.
Seriously. If I'm feeling like shit, or just can't come up with anything, a nice midnight drive usually helps.
