>Can somebody photoshop X? Can somebody make me a logo?
All requests for photoshopping belong on /wsr/ - Worksafe Requests or /r/ - Adult Requests. /gd/ doesn't take requests or do free or even paid work sometimes. However, if you're new at something, asking "HOW can I X?" rather than "CAN YOU make X?" will give you better results.

>Can I post some of my work for critique?
There is usally a critique/What-Are-You-Working-On thread, and that is where work for critique go.

>Can somebody find [font]?
http://www.mediafire.com/download/027xjs3ujvyqxmd/Fonts.zip
also check out your local torrent site or the font-share thread.
Remember to share and not just take. Also remember that using liscensed fonts in commercial works is a bad idea.

The French Olympic logo tumbles out of bed on a Parisian morning. She tousles her messy bob, dons breton stripes and ballet flats and whisks down the stairs from her fifth-floor apartment to grab a baguette before enigmatically texting two men who are pursuing her romantically.

The French Olympic logo has an expresso and a cigarette for lunch. She hops on a vintage bicycle and pedals past the Eiffel Tower on her way to a café where she will sit and read Baudelaire with her fluffy white dog at her feet.

thanks twitter

A while ago, Adobe discovered I pirated Photoshop and Illustrator, and now not only I don't have a program to work with, but this annoying message pops up every like, 30 minutes telling me to buy the original versions.
What can I do /gd/? I use a Mac and I eliminated all the adobe-related programs and files I could find, why is the message still popping? Also, could I re-pirate them or do I need to find a new program?

Could use a critique on this. It's supposed to be a 2 page ad. Gonna try to make those things on the top look like some typ of leaf, as well as adding wheat stalks and bees. For the text, I'm thinking a tagline and some smaller informative text

Creating shit for the sole purpose of aesthetic value is hollow and meaningless. All you are doing is creating vapid, useless work that will be irrelevant in 5 years or less. What is permanent is the meaning and personal experience. Don't fucking copy David Rudnick, Mirko Borsche, or anyone else. Be your fucking self. Originality takes years and years and years of refining. If you arent willing to put the work in, stop shitting out visual noise and quit. meme picture semi-related

There is nothing wrong with that
>Be your fucking self. Originality takes years and years and years of refining.
Yes, this should be the goal, and it takes years and years of shitting out garbage to achieve it. Be inspired by work of others. Produce shit. Show it to people. Get told that it is shit. Get told why it is shit. Learn and improve. There is nothing wrong with making garbage and showing it to the world. There can be no learning without willingness to make mistakes.

why do people like you feel the need to wage a philosophical war on what people should post or not, you are just gatekeeping and acting like an elitist. you hide behind the keyboard but wont post anything to prove your point. you sound like a female. nothing you will say will sway anyones mind, once you get past this one person war you will find happiness easier.

nah, photoshop and illustrator have a bunch of built in junk now for repeat patterns, and with a bit of effort (and minimal math skill) you can build nice patterns on your own.

I haven't done video editing in forever, I used to use final cut pro on a mac and hated it. I am wondering if there are any free programs to do simple tasks such as
>overlay a loop and text over an image.
>make gifs
>that's pretty much it for now

I'm on my potato computer at work and have access to a more powerful one at home if there is nothing that can run on this one. I know photoshop taxes this thing way too hard. It can even be a web based app if there is one that will do what I need. My graphic designer is busy and I'm just trying to see what I can do myself. pic somewhat related.

Hi /gd/,

I'm trying to increase, with photoshop, an image resolution without resizing it. Basically i want more pixels in it but maintaining the exact same width and height (i think it's called resampling?) but whatever i do, unless i enlarge the image too it doesn't work. Am i trying to do something which i'm not supposed to try?

Pic unrelated.

Illustrator is probably the best program, and you can just trace over stock images if you really suck at drawing.

This is a combination of PS (edited + greyscaled image, color overlay) and illustrator (traced 3-tone and added a fair amount of hand drawing w paintbrush tool, text and borders). I recommend this if you want to just shit out a bunch of these the easy way

I know you're probably looking for an easy button-click answer but after spending, like, 30 minutes of trial and error, I'm 90% sure yours is either hand drawn or traced digitally from a real litho print.
