Can anyone edit the earned hours of payslips? Or altogether alter xero payslips and reduce earnings?

Or - do any xero payslip generators/templates exist?

I had an idea to create some artworks promoting right wing ideas. Nothing too extreme. I've made myself this poster pic related.


I would be pleased if you helped me out on that one.

sorry if this is the wrong place, never posted here before

probably pretty cringe but i got some cards made in this style, obviously with my details and my workplace's information. my boss says it looks good but it needs to company logo on it. the thing is, the company logo is effectively the pornhub logo but with our name and colors. how can i incorporate that into the design? i know that paul allen's has the logo on the back, but thats a much fancier logo than ours.

and on a scale of 1-10 how autistic does this make me?

I'm an absolute retard with computers and cannot for the life of me figure out how to remove the white from this picture so I can put the picture on top of other images. Can anyone here remove the white from this image for me? Like the gray checkerboard thingy? Again, I'm an idiot and can't do it myself.

Place yourself in a customer standpoint: Businesses want influence, power, connection, any advantage, and art can create manufactured associations which aid goals. Create experiences for people, assemble narratives, conceptualize emotions: Tastefully manipulate your audience, then sell your service with proof of concepts in how you control people.

What would you pay someone $200.00 USD hourly to do in art? Start there for how you would set up stuff. Learn why people sponsored artists of old, what they did, how they did it, how people valued their work. You have centuries of successes and shortcomings to research from in prior artists' careers.

I want to hire someone to draw my concept art for my business shirts/cards

For tree looping business. Need a logo of a redwood tree and a cartoon muscly shirtless man chopping off the tree with a chainsaw size would be roughly 3x8cm with the man in a 1/10 ratio to the tree For the art I want a similar picture but from a top view with a man in the foreground holding a chainsaw by his side while the top of the tree falls to streets below.

Will pay above average for above average work, leave some of your work below so we can start talking

How do you choose your own colour(s)

What's the process
>>
>>429964
Not the person quoted, but choosing a color really depends on the context. A common way is to choose the dominant color based on the mood you are going for (warm/cool, bright/dark, saturated,muted). After that, find one or more complimentary colors, then finally fill in the many different shades you'll need for the project.

just started new job at a firm in a small design department creating sports uniforms. all the designers are using adobe apps on PCs. it's my first exposure to a PC with Windows - only ever had macs. I'm fine with finding my way around but even though the PCs are well specced up (mine is i9, 32GB with 8GB GPU) they seem laggy and unable to cope with large files. the other guys just shrug and say it happens - IT just blame the file sizes. never had this happen to me so frequently on a mac - should I grumble to my manager in the hope of getting a mac or is there something I should know about how to get my apps working more reliably on Windows? Mainly just Illustrator, Photshops and little InDesign
>>
>>429669
How large are the files we're talking about? Is it like a thousand layer pad file?
>>
>>429669
illustrator and indesign are poor programs - lag and crash all the fucking time - move some big vector images in a multiple artboard ai file....expect a wait and save before moving.
those specs should not be having a single fucking issue (lol thinking macs are somehow better, please bitch)
photoshop legit lags dealing with very large files, but they have to be pretty big and you have to be tossing them around pretty hard
>>
>>429669
Solid state hd. Increase ram usage in Adobe preferences. Quit being a bitch and learn how to use a real computer.
>>
>>429669

I have been using PC for anything Adobe for years and recently bought myself a M1 MBP in January. I really don't want to sound like an Apple fanboy or whatever (because for years I've thrashed Apple and have preached that PC is master race) but god fucking damn it - Adobe programs feel WAY smoother to me on my laptop.

The PC I have at my job is almost specced like yours except for the i9 (it has i7) and the 8GB GPU (it has Quadro p1000 v2 for some reason lol).

Adobe programs open way slower on PC than on my laptop but I experience a few more hang ups when using huge Photoshop or Illustrator files on Mac. For general social media designs - the laptop is perfect. If I have to do something big for print - I prefer to use the PC.

32GB of memory is plenty - as >>429762
said - increase the ram usage in Adobe preferences. I frequently run After Effects, Photoshop and Illustrator simultaneously and 32GB is enough for that. Yeah the programs are kinda slow but you have to keep in mind that they are heavy programs to begin

You'll get there anon :)

Why was it successful?

What made it work so well?

it was a long term stealth operation
its was an andre the giant shitty xerox sticker
some how everyone knew someone with one
then was one street lamps and walls
took a decent long time to turn into the stylized graphic
and the graphic works by ambiguity - oh fuck im being told to obey
oh fuck yeah look at those signs telling people to obey fuck that
oh fuck am i obeying that sign
and it copied from that alien movie with the wrestlers and sunglasses

so it built a base of cultural refences, established criedibility, then got slick and went wide into the masses

This is actually an important part of the story. The movie is "They Live" (1988) and comes at a time when a few things were happening:
* The general environment in the US and UK was moving from socially conservative (Regan/Thatcher years) to something less authoritarian
* The Soviet Union was collapsing (1989)
* Many viewed the end of the USSR as a win for capitalism over communism
* Late 20th Century global capitalism was becoming unwieldy and gave birth to dystopian fiction such as the movie "They Live" and the cyberpunk genre
* With the US as the only superpower there was a lot of anxiety and uncertainty about the future
The OBEY brand made use of propaganda style art that is generally associated with the Soviet Union. This absurd "echo" of the recently dissolved USSR captured a lot of attention because people were trying to deal with ambivalence about the end of the cold war, the early 90s recession, and general insecurity about the future. OBEY probably offered a bizarre distraction and possibly some comfort from the face of a beloved celebrity, the bold lines and type might have offered some clarity and definition in an increasingly fuzzy world. OBEY also seems to juxtapose authoritarian imagery with capitalism itself. This is a BRAND you must CONSUME (again, see "They Live"). How much of this is intentional I have no idea, I haven't spent much time reading about the creator Shepard Fairey.

I love this 1950s watercolory style lately. I mix it with some stark newsprinted graphics for a nice effect in cover pics.

I love this one so much I might play with it and use it on dozens of covers. But hopefully someone else has had the same kick and can share something similar.

Hey y'all, I didn't know where else to post this so fuck it:

My company delivers wholesale and we have a problem with printing our product labels. No matter what margins or page layout I set, and I have the right drivers, it always messes up the printing (refer to image). We use a sato m84pro and microsoft word, which worked flawlessly on our last laptop but we lost the preset.

Any help would be appreciated.

- check if the paper size in the printer is right
- check if the paper on the printing machine is right
- check if "fit to page" is set. Check if some option is making it distorted
>>
>>429186
I work in a print shop and this is almost 100% the problem. Also try this:
If you're using a label template make sure the sheet size is set to the right dimensions. If so save as pdf and test print as actual size. What program are you using to setup the labels?
