You probably won't like this but I promise I'm telling you with good intent - the world isn't as meritocratic as you think it should be, and while I don't think this is an objective truth, functionally speaking, your worth to other people is primarily how much joy you can bring them with your presence, utility being secondary. Someone that brings their bosses donuts or bagels or some shit and is fun to be around is going to be viewed as a better choice than someone much more talented that isn't as fun and generous to be around. You seem cynical, so go ahead and internalize that that isn't fair necessarily but that you can use it to your advantage anyway.

What are the best websites and/or online courses for graphic design?

As additional information, I have some, but not much, previous experience on bitmap software, but I havent done it in somewhat around 10 years. Also I never have really done any proper editing on actual photos, only graphics from scratch.

The latest software I've used was Photoshop CS2, and now I just installed Photoshop CC. From quick reading from Google searching I already found out that CC doesn't support older plugins. Is this a problem and should I prefer CS6 over CC, use them both, or am I just fine with using CC only?

I also got a hold of Illustrator, After Effects and InDesign, but first I probably should focus only on learning Photoshop?
Are some of those programs useless, and are there some additional programs I should get a hold of?
How about other websites, forums etc I should start browsing?

I think I'm pretty far away from making any income at all from graphic design, but that would be the goal in the long run. As for the time being it is just an autistic hobby, but having some eye for aesthetics and this being something that I enjoy, it would be nice to get good enough to develop this into a trade.

Is there some nifty way of removing DRM from video formats so that I can throw YT files into other programs like image rippers etc without DRM noping me out?

I tried something called FreDRMremoval but it seems like shit. Didn't do anything to the mp4 files I tried.

completely "flat" "minimal" ui design of early 2010s implied less work for dimwits but is actually much harder to execute right. even nielsen-norman article talks about how this trend resulted in degraded ux.

picture unrelated, because i wanted to rant about something how globohomo-style svg creating designers-'illustrators' noticeably lack nuance in deconstructing anatomy that trained cartoon/carricature artists of past have to make a point that there is usually high effort in well regarded work somewhere.

Fuuuck, how do I open up a path in photoshop? I closed my path but I want to continue working in it. When I delete last anchor point it just stays closed without it being possible to add new points anywhere else than on already existing path.

It's fine, I had trouble using the path tool inb4 as well. Also, you can change angles of the path by holding the Alt button

It's like they need to invent something that teaches you how to do things. We could call it a "manual". And make it available within the application itself. That would be cool, and cut down on the "I AM RETARD" threads like this.

the fastest way to troubleshot learning is from threads like these in software forums. just a fact. deal.

It can make a lot more stuff, I set 3 equations for red, green, and blue and it generates a color for each pixel.

>I set 3 equations for red, green, and blue and it generates a color for each pixel.
So it's always the same pattern but with three random colors, one for each equation until you change the equations?
I mean, what is that, y=x^-1, y=xc and x=yc? Where c is an arbitrary constant

If you actually accidentally made something like this that already existed, then good job. But if you're just being a massive faggot, then fuck off.

What language did you use?

minimalism has meant the total death of creative graphic design, EVERYTHING looks the same now when it comes to logos, i get shit like removing the metallic sheen of the apple logo, but ffs, why are corporations like Firefox butchering iconic logos with disgusting oversimplification?

>The simpler the logo: the better your brain assimilates it.
that's retarded. if the logos are too simple then they all look the same.
by taking away subtle points of reference you take away the brain's ability to make quick differentiations. eventually the logo is so simple that it has to just be a word to be understood at all. fuck modern design trends and fuck you.

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

Previous thread >>397954

> 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.

Check the OP and do due diligence. You'll probably need to grab the whole pack.
