>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]?
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.

Request and share non-free typefaces and identification of typeface samples.

Previous thread >>408210

> Font identification

Before you request, do your due diligence by running your font sample through a font identifier;

whatfontis <dot> com
fontsquirrel <dot> com/matcherator (be sure to enable the myfonts setting)
myfonts <dot> com/whatthefont

If you're not getting a clear read then put your sample in PS, separate the letters and colour it to be pure black on a white background.

I downloaded a movie in 4k, now what's the best program to edit this file and cut some scenes?

Adobe Premiere should do the job, but this program is gay and isnt accepting my huge file
OP here. Im trying to download wondershare filmora, cracked. Seems like it will do the job
ffmpeg will cut anything instantly, no need to render. here's the command line (00:00:00 = HH:MM:SS. the first 00's are the starting time the second ones are the time you want to add from there)

ffmpeg -ss 00:00:00.0 -i input.mp4 -c copy -t 00:00:00.0 output.mp4

Biggest advantage stability, higher profit. AE and Premier crash so much.
Davinci Resolve is far superior. The only people who prefer adobe products are people who make courses on them or students who went to uni to learn it and amv kids.
It's actually sad how terrible AE/ Primer pro are without plugins.
Not him, but I've recently switched to resolve and fusion, and they pretty much blow after effects, premiere, and audition completely out of the water. I'm not excited about getting used to using nodes for compositing, but it's hard to argue against, and I'm already used to working with nodes in Blender, so I'm not too worried.

And as for Blender, I haven't really found a situation where I felt at a disadvantage against any other 3D packages. The only software that outclasses it is Houdini, but that costs like $5000 or some shit, and I'm not going to be running any crazy high res and detailed physics simulations anyway, and blender will probably catch up sooner or later. Unreal Engine 5 looks pretty cool, but outside of making really nice environments, it isn't quite as flexible as Blender, and even if it was, Unreal is basically free as well.

The only reason I haven't already uninstalled adobe is because I still need it when I'm working with other people, and there isn't really a decent replacement for Photoshop and Illustrator yet.

But god I hope their popularity dies down. Adobe sucks.

I decided to make an open source rgb traditional Japanese palette: https://ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/日本の色の一覧

I see three ways:
1. I can pick some colors by myself - but I'm kinda art-retarded. Are there any math behind palette building?
2. I can copy some existing palettes, f.e. from Kuretake Gansai Tambi, but it's a bit awkward without any language understanding.
3. I can google existing palettes, but top results are not made of that colors from wiki. I'm not sure, but I think that jap wiki is pretty accurate in the list. Are there any ways to filter exact matches in some site?

I also googled by '日本の伝統的なカラーパレット' - 'Japanese Traditional colors palette'; and there are palettes, but no rgb/hex color codes provided, just that...symbols, that make me sad)

I don't believe that I'm the first man who want Japanese rgb palette. What am I doing wrong?

I have a question: I do both 3D and illustrations so I figured why not mix both like pic related. However, I'm at a loss at how to set the 3D scene correctly so that the 3D shape influence the poster. Any help on this ? Tutorials or example project files? I mainly work with blender as far as 3D software goes.
There's a lot of ways of doing it dunno about blender though, the quickest way is to just doing the flat text on the 3d software, the most professional way would be rendering all the multiple passes (shadows, lights, ambient occlusion, refraction, specular, chromatic aberration, reflections, depth of field, etc) and doing the final compositing on photoshop.
Thank you so much for the ressources! Was kind of losing my mind at this!
Also don't know if that's helpful, but I found this, way less fun since its with dimensions but who knows

where can I download photoshop without getting my ass full of malware? I've read that m0nkrus releases have trojans so I'm not downloading that shit. Any suggestions?
3 replies omitted. Click here to view.
GenP cracker for windows or Adobe Zii cracker for Mac. They crack the trial versions you download through Adobe CC
don't forget to block all the Adobe IPs on your host file or they will send you a message to scare you saying they know you are pirating their software.
m0nkrus is safe ive thought? I scan my computer everyone and while so I don't know if they were activated yet or there not there
I think I downloaded it straight from Adobe.

Cant recommend affinity enaught. I use it for about 3 or 4 years now and i am as happy as i could be.
If you want to edit photos, get photo. If you want to graphic design, get desinger. You could also get the third one but i am not sure for what it is. (i only shoot photos and do light gd)
Anyway you can also just get them all bc they work PERFECT with one another.
Good luck
I've considered buying Designer and Publisher because those are what I need for wor (Publisher is a desktop layout program, btw). I was skulking around the sale all the time, reading your post now I thought "well, why not".
Sale's over.
Ah, well. Waiting for the next one then.
Do you have any means to make more money?
Nice man 10% commition is already in my bank xD
Hope you like it
Not sure what kind of work you're doing, but I use clip studio paint and love it. I know quite a few artists who have abandoned the monthly payments of PS for CSP. It's a one time payment of $50 but goes as sale (50% off) regularly. CSP has a very similar feel to PS and my artist friend says the only thing CSP is missing is the liquify tool.

Wow gee thanks let me just hit the stop button
>read a book my nigger and help us do something about it
This is good though, OP's pic is trash
I fucking hate these niggers, they were the ones that caused global warming with their companies and hit and yet it's somehow the average joe's fault?
ecology is good, but on this level it's a substitute for religion - we killed God; consumption is everything that matters; repent for chinese factories and your perpetual unavoidable consumption habits etc., pedophilia is cool tho..

Back when design wasn't infected by the globohomo and tech was seen as a 'hope' for the future and actually looked futuristic, unlike the flat/minimal style we see today

What is the name of this visual genre? It reminds me of vaporwave but it's more classic. In the 2000s there used to be lots of things with this look. There ought to be a name.

>vaporwave is an ironic aesthetic language commenting on the increasingly dystopian present through the lens of the rather hollow optimism of the 80's, 90's, and 00's
Lmao imagine being such a faggot that you interpret Vaporwave through a lens of irony
Vaporwave is cool
The 80's are cool
Optimism is fucking COOL
Now kill yourself you depressing loser

Thanks anon, that's a very interesting and insightful reply.
You mentioned an interesting term: neo-classicism. What I am looking for is in that direction. It's not just about conveying hope through the lens of someone in the 00s, it's about using those new technologies to portray sophistication, excellence, class.
Pic related is a great example. There is a feeling to it that is very similar to that of the OP picture.
KYS faggot zoomer which needs to have name for literally everything
