Just tried it. Where does it export the png's or gif to?

>>393285
Yeah, the code was good for 30 people.
>>
>>393314
it makes a folder "randomizedpng" wherever your open file is
you can change this via
>"EXPORT_DIR": "/randomizedpng",

if your file hasn't been saved yet, check c:\randomizedpng
(If you're on a Mac, I have no idea where it will end up)

Hi, I'm 17 and interested in Software UI Design/Human-Computer Science. I've been designing in Photoshop lately, and after looking at some UI for inspiration I came across UI designs of 2011 and 2012, specifically in the iOS 6/Mac OS X Mountain Lion era of UI Design. Looking at it, many things were apparent.

> The sheer creativity of these UI
> How every single UI was unique from each other, unlike flat UI of today which I find repetitive
> The beautiful detail in every element of the UI whether it be the icons, or the interface
> The 'fun' factor
> Visual Eyecandy

Looking around, I see everyone furiously against skeuomorphism but I find it beautiful. What're your thoughts, 4chan?

Pic related, I designed a mock advertisement in the skeuomorphic style.
>>
yes, it's amazing but we can't have nice things so we are stuck with flat, boring shit for a while.
at least we are past the long 45° shadows by now
>>
>>393353
agreed, I feel flat designers larp so much over it because they can't design skeuomorphism. texture is like a bad word to them. skeuomorphism requires a lot of skill.

also, oh god, that was a terrible phase in design, then again so is all of flat design...

>>393274
I made a zine and its pretty straightforward with InDesign. start by making a flat plan and deciding what goes on each page, then make the content. Easy.

Im a senior who just got out of high school and now that im out of school my school stopped my free photoshop subscription. I really like the program and they only started to give it out halfway though my Junior year because they got a grant or some shit like that, but with COVID and me being laid off my job and looking for colleges at the same time, I can't really afford to buy it. But it brings me to my point of I remember like 3 or 4 years ago someone on /b/ or something posted a thread like this and someone told them what to do and with /b/ now being basically a porn wasteland I have 0 idea where to post this. Please help me out if you can and if it helps my school has the latest version

Do you guys know programs to export frames from a video that work on macOS Catalina?
I was using kmplayer but it doesn't work anymore....

im pretty sure vlc can do that

You can import a video into photoshop, it automatically splits into frames
>>
>>393291
bring a video in after effects and then export it in a png sequence. You can then bring the png sequence into photoshop and export it as a gif if you want.

I am making a 4chan clone and I need help with design. How can I fix this?

what have you done?

It's pretty surreal seeing 4chan's UI with more modern-day elements... very Microsoft-esque, I can't put my finger on it.

I agree with your friend on >>392756, the image is pretty cluttered. That said, I like where your head's at, a synthwave color theme might be fun to experiment with.

Can't wait to see where this goes, best of luck to ya!

Umm no they aren't. There are so many kinds of businesses that revolve around printing and cannot be replaced by "muh digital"
>>
>>393242
Direct mail houses are the bottom of the barrel, and most of the physical printing goes to china. Know more about the industry before "nuh uh"ing me. Print is dying. Not dead, dying. More printing goes overseas now, than is done here - and has been for 20 years, I was running print jobs remotely in Singapore in 2000. I've been working in print for longer than you've probably been alive. Most local printing is gone. Mid range is decimated. High end is hanging on, but there's a fraction of the number of presses still running than 10 years ago. I know the people who worked at them, they all had to leave the industry.
>>
>>393251
You claiming that you're a relic in the industry is more of a detriment to your argument than anything. Also, is it dying or is it moving overseas? Sperging all over your keyboard because your "I GOTTA BE RIGHT" autism trigger went off adds nothing to the conversation.

>>393132
You just need to expand what you're searching for. If you can't find the rockstar UI job that pays in ferraris then look around your community. This is probably more targeted towards US, but small businesses can always be shown where they're lacking when it comes to brand building. Even going to a restaurant and offering to redesign a menu can help you get in a steady freelance income while you wait for a bigger opportunity to open up.
>>
>>393297
LOL, okay, troll. Keep telling us what the industry is like, while pretending to be a designer on 4chan.

Post Client "Experiences"

>need his shitty logo for an animation
>tell him in the kindest way possible that he should get a new logo done, properly this time, since this is hard to work with and impossible to ever print
>he said previously that he got his current design from some fiverr designer who charged him like 500$ for literal shit and disappeared from the site
>you can obviously see that his "logo" is just a 400x400 cutout from an internet picture, doesn't even have a transparent version, absolute dogshit quality overall
>he defends his logo fiercly, even though he called the designs he got from fiverr horrible himself, says his cousin was able to animate it and he printed it on a hat
>mfw I imagine him wearing a hat with a pixelated, half-assed cut out illustration from the internet which is 400x400
>mfw I need to care about his insecurities because of a 30$ animation

How do I avoid putting my Clients in a defensive position? I'm just trying to help and advise them in their own best interest but they become agressive when you explain to them why their design is objectively shit, I just couldn't go further without mentioning it because I don't want anyone to see that the animation was made by me and possibly asociating the logo design with my work.

You could try by getting your facts straight first, in your troll, shithead.

First it's a $500 logo from Fiver (nobody pays that much on that site for a logo, lol.), then it's $30.
>says his cousin was able to animate it and he printed it on a hat
Is gibberish.

I understand, but considering what he wanted was a 2-3 second transition for his stream and that it would take me 40 minutes max to make it's a decent price all things considered.

>>393163
What are you talking about? His entire design was 500$ (not just the logo), I told him his Logo was hard to work with and that he probably won't be able to print it properly, he argued that his cousin was able to animate it and that he printed it on a hat. How is this a political issue you fucking retard.
