>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.

Photoshop isn't letting me do Save for Web without getting an error like pic related. I'm using CC 2019. Legitimate copy.
Yesterday I was able to do so just fine. Yes, I've googled it but all results I've found are inconclusive or generally unrelated.

Additional information is that for whatever reason my Windows 10 started giving me the "please activate windows" shit yesterday after not having the problem for 5 months.
I reapplied MSTools and it's gone now, but I wonder if that may have fucked with something.

Explain?
Also I tried moving an image to desktop and it would do it. I had to drag and drop it and give it admin permission so it would do it.

>>360584
You can set what folder your computer uses for your desktop. Change which one it uses (a random blank folder is fine) then move it back the the one you want.
>>
>>360585
Alright. will try that out. I'm not sure how that would fix Save for Web, but I may as well try anything at this point sans reinstalling the OS.

I have learned that i'm the biggest fucking idiot on 4chin.

I figured the problem out. I last turned some shit on in Windows Defender for Ransomware which makes it so that any invalidated changes to folders can't be done. As it turns out this effects pretty much fucking everything minus a couple of of spots, like my other disk drive or my Downloads folder.
I turned that shit off and everything's working again.

Skeumorphic is so important because it gives our brains more visual depth to associate the complex functionalities with. When it's just flat there's less room for visual ques to store dense and complex information.

I've seen one in a museum. The particular one I viewed, as soon as I came close to it the illusion evaporated. It's like a model toy town , which is fair enough. There were bits of architecture he'd missed out, perhaps he didn't even notice himself. Also, the lighting is obviously an invention, it is more like little 5w light bulbs on a Barbie house than the gas light from the pamphlet shop. Still, a delight.

>>359923
If you're good, it's quick.
If you're new, it takes a while, but it's worth learning.
And if you ever give somebody a logo without a full reference document on how it's used along with at least 5 different filetypes of the final usable image you're a piece of shit trash that deserves bankruptcy.
