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

What's the name of this illustration style used in old advertising campaigns? They named it in MadMen once, but I really can't recall

You're welcome, but the style of WPA advertising does't resemble Norman Rockwell at all: it's all about flat colors and sharp edges.
I think you're right, this definitely cleared up my mind about what they were talking about (I am not American, so I'm making some research to get it right) anyway thanks a lot for your answer

Make whatever you want (reaction pics, edits, memes, etc.), the only rule is that you're limited to a Photofunia template.

I'm curious to see what /gd/ comes up with.

fuck off and promote your website somewhere else

Omg, great!
You literally whitewashed this proud african man
Colors are oversaturated.

He looks like Hellboy, because you have no cooler temp colors in the skin, and stomped all the values with your color replace brush.
You worked on a low resolution image, and didn't even try to take out the dust, or fix the over-exposure/fading in the top left, which should be done before color.

This is coloring with crayons level.

Which is fine for here, because this isn't a real graphic design forum. You should go read some real ones, and in particular what pro photo restorers/retouchers do, you might improve from this.
Can you recommend some good gd forums that are still active?
fuck this cunt

Could I simply learn how to use programs like Inkscape and Gimp, along with important graphic design principles, and make some money from home? Where would I advertise my work? How would I get started in the world of graphic design? The only thing I can think of is selling logo designs off of Fiverr. Is there any clear-cut path I could take that would almost guarantee I'd be making money? I've already watched a few hours worth of videos on graphic design, Inkscape, and especially Gimp, so I have a bit of an idea of what the work would look like.

I'm in a tough situation I can't figure out how to get myself out of. I'm twenty-years-old, yet I'm unemployed. I've done a few odd jobs before, but work like that is uncommon. I don't have a care, so I can't drive anywhere, and I live off of my Dad. The reason why this is all the case is because of my severe OCD, and especially my anxiety surrounding sleep. I can sleep normally right now, but when I was in school, I couldn't sleep thinking about having to wake up at a certain time to show up to class. I would show up to school sometimes three hours late, and I would only get five to six hours of sleep. It would often take me between three and four hours to fall asleep, and I'm not exaggerating. It was an absolute nightmare. I don't have those sleeping problems now, because I don't have to wake up at anytime to show up for anything. It was so bad, I actually dropped out of high school within the first week of junior year, and simply got my diploma from an online high school.

Sure you can, but It depends on lots of things, If I were you I would drop both Inkscape and Gimp and just pay or pirate both photoshop and illustrator, those will save you hours of work per week, not to mention a lot of clients want their files as .psd, .svg or .ai.
>just pay or pirate both photoshop and illustrator
How do you pirate that software? I’m familiar with The Pirate Bay and BitTorrent, but I’ve never pirated any modern programs. Could you please lead me to a tutorial, anon?

They usually have a .txt file with instructions.
For the one I have (CC 2017) I just installed it offline (mount the .ISO then run automatically) and then I used the patcher. though I had to manually add the adobe IP's to the host file so adobe won't make any updates or connect to the internet by itself.
I just figured out how to pirate Adobe Illustrator and Adobe Photoshop. You install these torrents, then execute the dmg file, open the extras folder, execute the installer, install the application, go to the folder the application is located in within the Applications folder, execute the Adobe application, the application will then tell you that you need to add your license or quit the application, quit the application, go back to the executed dmg, and execute Adobe Zii 2020 5.2.2, go back to the folder the Adobe application is located in, click and drag the Adobe application into Adobe Zii 2020 5.2.2, and allow the program to patch whichever Adobe application you installed. You will no longer need a license to use whichever Adobe CC application you installed.


I FORGOT TO MENTION you're going to want to execute the Adobe application offline, so disconnect your ethernet cable and turn off your wifi. Once the application has been patched with Adobe Zii 2020 5.2.2, you can access the Adobe application offline.

I'm in a phase where I'm lacking creativity and concepts. I'd like to hear from you guys how you keep creativity and originalty during phases of nothingness.

I consider myself pretty "original" and creative but I'm kinda stuck now. If you could recommend some books , art , pictures , movies whatever I'd be glad to check them out.

Thanks, that's actually good advice. I'm trying to do shit in Photoshop and you are right , I have the bad vice to hop in front of the computer first without even thinking about what I want to do. Sometimes it works , sometimes it's just pop in my head an idea. I'm trying to be as creative and original as I can without riding a trend or so the same shit all over again like many other Instagram artists.
i do an 8-10 mile bike ride everyday during the week, and a much longer one on the weekends. helps clear my mind, and focus elsewhere. i swear its what keeps me from getting stuck in a creative block.
Strangely I was more creative in lockdown then now. It felt like I was having less distraction but I understand you .
Just start by creating a giant inspiration folder of all images you like...im talking several hundred...
whenever you feel like you're hitting a brick wall

I need a little bit of help, my friends. I am trying to take a series of images and extract color palettes from them. Every online tool I have found to do this never gives me the exact colors in the image when checked manually. I have never really done this before, so I can't tell whether this is by design or that these tools are just shit. Does anyone know a good tool that will give me the exact colors in the images, or can maybe explain to me why this is happening?
I'm going to give you an example of what I'm talking about. This tool from Adobe gives me #F2E205. 99.99999% of the yellow in the image is #F6FF00. Why the hell does it give me this yellow that occurs on a single pixel instead?
7 colors

Lazy cunt, just do it manually. I swear everyone on this board spends more time on shortcuts than actually making shit

Newfag here. I'm not even sure about is this the right place. How could I make pic related animated led sign? Letters and the led would move regularly and smoothly inside them. I'm more of the Gimp and Vegas user, but I'm open to everything.
If you're asking about making an actual LED sign in real life, /diy/ would be the better board to ask. If you want to use a prefab microcontroller/computer instead of messing around with a bunch of 555 timers, /diy/ and sometimes /g/ have good resources on what to buy and how to program them.
Nah I want an animated pic.
Then you'd probably be better off finding the original resources ripped from the game, as opposed to starting from scratch or working backwards from a video capture. Skullgirls is on PC, so I'd frankly be surprised if someone hasn't ripped most of the assets.
Sorry If I was equivocal. I don't want to make a 1:1 copy. Just something similar with different text.

So I cancelled my free trial of adobe creative cloud and then tried to launch the program just for the hell of it. And then it tells me "this is the last time you can open the application" and opens it up working 100%. With no active subscription.

Adobe you fool you underestimate how much I'm willing to torture my ram

What was being a graphic designer in the 20th century like?
File: hqdefault.jpg (33 KB, 480x360)

boxy and cheap gradients
Better pay, more jobs, but most of it was still manual pasteup and technical pens and rub on letters. The desktop publishing thing did'nt take off until the late 80's. You could still make a career out of working for local companies as an inhouse designer, or in the corporate world, or as a freelancer.

That might as well be 100 years ago, instead of 30-40.

Hey, I am asking for advice on which Macbook I should buy.

The two avilable options are:
1. 2017 MacBook Air with i7 processor, 8GB of memory, and 250GB of storage.
2. 2013 Macbook Pro with i5 processor, 4GB of memory, and 250GB of storage.

My main needs are two-dimensional graphic design and internet browsing.

Thanks in advance!

build a pc and boot MacOS if you really cant handle windows. any other option is cringe
Just get a Second-Hand Microsoft Surface Pro (or something similar) if you want something instant that's good for Graphic Design.

MacBooks are highly overrated and overpriced. You'd be luckier making your own Hackintosh, but that might be impossible since pretty soon Apple is going to abandon Intel, and start building their own in-house AMD CPUs.
Literally buy an old Mac Pro from 2010 for 300 and upgrade the ram, hdd to an ssd, and a new (COMPATIBLE) graphics card and you can have a brand new Mac pretty much. I just did this with a 2008 one and it runs illustrator and photoshop perfectly.
>I just did this with a 2008 one and it runs illustrator and photoshop perfectly.
lol no. photoshop requires macOS 10.12 or later, which in turn requires a mac pro from 2010 or newer. and even then the os requirement will depreciate that 4 year old OS. macOS 10.15 requires a 2013 or newer mac pro.
