    Photoshop anyone?

    Post by reclaimer_117 on Wed Jan 19, 2011 5:50 pm

    I took some beginner graphic design classes in school, mainly dealing in Photoshop. I just recently brushed off my tablet and CS4 though and started getting at it again. Anyone else into Photoshop or other stuff? I'm kind of interested to see what people who are good at Photoshop can come up with =)

    Heres something I just made following a tutorial I found online


    Yeah so post stuff if you want to, offer advice, I don't care, as long as you say my stuff is the best XD

    ...jk, in case you couldnt figure it out...

    Yeah I worked with Photoshop (and still have it) as part of my Film Course. Awesome program. I was actually going to use to work on the maps, but damned if I can remember how to use it now...

    Yeah Photoshop does this thing where, if you don't use it for like 2 weeks, then you seemingly forget half of what you learned over the last 4 months...When I started up again I barely knew how to make selections anymore...was a sad day.

    I've dabbled in it off and on for a while. Photoshop is way too expensive for me, so I use "Gimp", which is a free graphic editing software. You can download plug-ins to give it a photoshop look. It can do just about anything Photoshop can do, but with a few less bells and whistles.

    How exactly did you create that image up top?

    I downloaded Gimp a while ago but for some reason I didnt like the interface to much, probably shoulda given it some more time though...Anyways I used this to make the up-top thing. Didn't come out as well as I wanted but good enough for a first try. Also did you make your sig? Cause I really like it lol, and especially your avatar.

    No, I wish I could take the credit for it. But i know how to layer images, and work with transparency! You learn that, and you have 2 of the major tools in working with images. My advice is to take a course in graphic design, whether online or in a brick and motar school.

    But if u play around with it long enough, your bound to learn something!

    Good Luck!

    Thanks man! Yeah, your badges look great! I like the way you have different color for each level of the chain-of-command, so to speak. Keep up the good work!
