How do you translate a design into non latin alphabets like japanese?

Because I don't think all I've read about typography teaches me anything about kanas and kanji autism.

And all I know from japanese fonts are the evangelion one and maybe the madoka magica font and maybe the rpg maker porn font.

I would appreciate if you guys know a book to deal with non latin language fonts, specially japanese.

Many thanks.

First time making a cover for my book.
How to improve this as a beginner? Any advice would really help. I know nothing about covers but I need one and am too poor to pay.

-Did I overdo it with "wearing out" the text?

-Is there too much black space? I don't know what else I could put there, I've dropped some stars and shit to reinforce the sci-fi aspect of the book.

-The stock photo is slightly off center, should I center it more?

-is this just dogshit or can I make this work

-if you have any tips on what else I could do I'd appreciate it. should I color correct this to be more washed out?

I looked at Canva shit when I designed this, but I didn't use Canva, I just used photoshop and made it look sort of like Canva because that was the limit of my skill (putting a stock photo, washing it out, then dropping some white text on top).

Guys what the fuck happened? Is Amazon a scam?

I got the print book and the cover resolution is dog shit, it looks 20% darker than the image, it feels pixelated, the colors are all off...
What do I do? I chose matte for the cover, is that what fucked it? Or are the stars just too small and precise to ever look good in print?

I didn't submit a low res image. I guess I gotta boost the brightness of the print cover to compensate for paper not having an LCD backlight
midjourney is like 10 bucks and you have the right to use it commercially BUT ai images aren't copyright protected by law (in the US, maybe EU too? )
lol those are stars?
it looks lice generic photoshop layering to make the image look 'old'
so work on that - making them a bit more 'starrish'
and use as high quality and as large a file size as you are allowed to .

So guys, I would really like to brag about this. Anmietedly, I really don't know wether this amount of layers is worthwhile.

Is it perfectly normal to have that plenty? or could I improve?

worked with curves; luminosity > hue r g b layer > hard light layer > color burn. A lot of like 45%-55% greys in between, as well as dodge/burn.

color corrected wall with paper is goal


I now have to additional close-ups to match, for which I thought


using the (scaled) original pic as lower layer
would be a nice and simple solution.

Whilst nice, the tinkering around still was a pain in the ass aka. lengthy.

Is there a way to go quicker? Usually "match color" sucks, me at least only had a fine result once when matching a plain color without any secondary.

if you are a student making a portfolio
just get some fucking lamps and arrange them in the room to cancel shadows and make even color and reshoot
the time wasted in photoshop isnt worth it.
get it good in the camera
yea.. I see what I can do for the last one, you're right
nice artwork too, i really like it

i used something using this as inspo when we had that one rate your work thread. i learned a lot but it's not as cool as yours
I like this one since it has a clearer negative image, but I guess it depends on the color of the speakers
The font on the top right isn't so legible. CHARLED LECURC
due to the light rim around the subjects in the photographs, the white versions are definitely better.
personally I like the black and white version the most, since it appears most tidy of them all. but I think that for reasons of wanting to draw attention to the poster actually the colored version (white) is best.

overall decent posters. tho you should work more on readability. you are lacking a higher sense of structure, which makes reading and understanding its contents unneccessarily tedious.

Is there a fast/free version of Photoshop that does what PS can do? Specifically "content aware healing", etc.

Get a Google pixel and use magic eraser
This. Photopea.com.

It's a free Photoshop clone that runs in your browser. It's immensely powerful for a browser based tool. I use it when I'm not on my work computer that has Photoshop, and I very rarely miss any items from the original.

Photoshop is still best, but I am in awe at the free option provided by Photopea. It's bound to eventually steal Photoshop customers who don't need CMYK support.

Hello im a poorfag so i can’t afford a computer so i do designes on my phone as a hobby and just wanted to hear your opinions and i will be happy to show you more if you want
Just saved this and sent it to my friends and you are now a niche inside joke to me and my internet friends. Please send more :3
pretty good for something done on a phone but the yellow scribbling over the jewelry and shoelaces looks kinda gay
I seriously wonder what could not be done with a phone nowadays. I think it looks dope. Feel free to show more, also maybe give a hint on some technical limits you face. Id be interested.

For simple photoshop/illustrator (gimp/inkscape in case) you def. Dont need a M2 processor. People made vector graphics and shit back in 2010 with windows too, so to speak. Especially if you do not need a laptop.
great job for doing this on a phone. it shows you have potential, and whenever you'll be able to afford a computer, you should definitely get photoshop and get even better
Just buy a second hand Lenovo Thinkpad. I'm using one that costs roughly $155. I'm able to use Photoshop with like 50 layers, tons of Smart Objects, tons of effects - and I very rarely run into any issues. If you just want to create 2D Designs and don't want to mess with 3D/video, you don't need to spend much. Adobe suite is very easy to pirate also.

A little sorry for killing a thread due to this question, but how can i edit a picture into this style? I mean, the pure black/white coloring and the low quality.
looks like it has been photocopied for multiple iterations.

That's a very cool image. To make it pure black and white, apply Threshold. To give it that printed kind of effect, apply a slight Gaussian Blur, then apply Threshold again. I use one of BLKMARKET's tools "Trash Machine" to do this; gives me a couple of extra options like Displacement Map, very easy to find for free on Google.

The Monad. Hermetic symbol signifying the geometric genesis.

Albrecht Durer’s Vesica Piscis, an imperfect method of generating a pentagon from a hexagon. (the diagonals are not at exactly 45° ). The cross hairs signify the emergence of mankind into knowledge.

An equilateral triangle with a 108° isosceles “Golden Gnomon” cut out of it.

The Monad and Durer’s Vesica Piscis are connected via three geometric relations which are described by the triangle on the right, with a pentagram and a 51° pyramid which are identified, both of equal side length to the triangle. These relationships were discovered through unravelling the geometry John Dee has crafted onto the title page of Shake-speares sonnets.
This astonishing work of sacred geometric art contains the three great astronomical wonders of the era; SN1572 – Tycho’s Supernova, C1577 – The Great Comet, and SN1604 – Kepler’s Supernova, plus Venus for good measure. It incorporates a Tau Cross, Petrine Cross, Chi Rho, Triple Tau, and a great cross which is potentially a Rosy Cross. All these have connections to Rosicrucianism and early Freemasonry.
There exists a perplexing stack of four conditions that Dee has managed to satisfy spanning the two halves of the diagram. The entire model, everything in the illustrations presented to you, is derived from just two input points, plus one further shift and contract correction. In total, 6 numbers. These aren’t arbitrary lines fiddled to look right. It’s a “machine generated” model. You have to decide if it’s close enough and if it’s plausible.
In completion, Dee has left us an exquisite triplicate signature and the most important message on the page.
This message is repeated twice in the dedication page encryption.

There is so much more unique cryptography in this publication. This is NOT the Bible Codes. It’s in another league to any word or number puzzle you’ve ever seen. There is bogus stuff associated with some Oxfordian cryptography, indeed this very geometry. It’s original discoverer believes Dee has encoded Brun’s constant in there. Ironically Dee has referred to Giza, thrice. But not in the way Green describes. That doesn’t necessarily mean that everything Green found is nonsense.

You don’t need the crypto to get your head round the conclusions of these two opening pages. There’s no evidence of Stratford’s literacy, just six pathetic scratched signatures. His will has no punctuation, no books, and hence no Shakespeare. De Vere died in 1604. The argument for dating any of the works beyond that year is yet another Perry Mason moment for the establishment. Tempest, the one and only connection to an event other than the appearance of works in the historical record, was proved conclusively to be bogus way back in 2008 (why is this empty claim stapled onto every press article on this subject ?). The connections between Dee and De Vere regarding fateful sea voyages is epic.

Aubrey De Vere, Edward’s direct ancestor, was William the Conqueror’s half-brother-in-law. The “fighting Johns of the De Veres” were celebrated for their roles at Crecy and Bosworth, and many other battles from Antioch to Stoke Field, the last great battle of the Long Bow. No family held a military record and noble prestige to match the De Vere’s by the 16th century. Edward was Lord Chamberlain, officially the most senior of aristocrats below the monarch. He was measurably the poshest, most entitled “aristocrat” in our entire history. He drove our early theatre culture, the first outside Italy. He was the most revered and hidden figure within Freemasonry. He was and is it’s greatest secret.
And he wrote the works attributed to “VVilliam Shake-speare”.
If that’s blown a fuse then deal with it. I’ve now read the poetry and I have to say that I’m more of a Cooper-Clarke man myself. John Dee does fab puzzles though, and I’ve had the luxury of unravelling one. Dee is the figure we ascribe to Merlin. The prototype for every nerd since the Renaissance.

If you’ve got this far and wish to dispute my findings, please go to the Folger LUNA Library, download a high res of the title page, and start measuring some of my assertions. Only the Folger copy was printed to sufficient quality. The other three extant copies do not possess the finer detail of the star chart and the full stops. My workings are here

you are chasing ghosts that dont exist, friend.
shakespeare is not the printer
the printer used blocks
blocks produce ratios
shit happens
not crypto
this is old copypasta and a load of horseshit why did you even bother OP?

Such a interesting topic, though. Like, we at that point we are surrounded by shitloads of ratios and whatever crazy symbols. I always wonder on how this affects our being really. Like, some mad scaled nike logo, the weirdest and complexest forms at the fingertips of absolute noobs… i really thin tjis makes people go mad at some level, they just are overwhelmed.

OPs picrel is really just the outcome of well made work. It will always have fine proportions, be it intended or not.

How can I convincingly make something look like newsprint? Say I have a map and I want it to look like this pic, how would I achieve that effect?
Also, semi-related, what're some good (preferably free) newsprint fonts?
add tits and monkeys
There are paper backgrounds to be found, google „newspaper backrground texture“ for example.

I guess „Cheltenham“ would be a nice type, is has serifes though. The font at the picrel is some classical american „gothic“ aka a font without serifes.the most basic choosing would be what i have found as „daily news gothic“, whilst a font being called „news gothic“ will be availabe a 100%.
Maybe even what is to be found under „american gothic“ or „american grotesk“ already does it for you. You want the „semibold“ or „bold“ cuts then.

For that fuzzy effect, i would scale your black parts down very much, then do a screenshot and scale them up again. Google how to get rid of white plains in case.

Hello GD Chuds, /fit/ here
I have been a graphic designed for less than 24 hours, which is how long I've been playing with SD. I can now produce anything you seething faggots can produce almost instantly and I bet
i have more VRAM than 99.99% of this board.
How does it feel to be made redundant overnight?
ah, but you dont know the real secrets of the craft
so i aint worried about shit
What you have is a bunch of monkeys with typewriters.
They will put letters on a page, sure. Occasionally a complete word. Maybe, once every year or two, they'll even manage a coherent sentence.
But they will never write a novel. YOU will never write a novel.
You have no skills, no talent, no creativity. You put words into a machine, the machine churns out worthless slop in return. It has no soul or artistry, it does not understand. It merely runs its algorithms, spins its gears, and spits out a crude, thoughtless approximation of whatever data it scraped from real humans.
Take away that data, and it's nothing. Take away your machine, and you're nothing.

How do you make good YouTube thumbnails?

Which video editing software should I use to make youtube videos? Like which software is the best for the type of videos that are, you know, a bit of a meme, a bit of silly willy, a bit editty and stuff. Bit of a toomfoolery, you know?
>soi face, the more gaped the mouth the better
>bright oversaturated colors
>big red arrows and circles in the corner of the thumbnail pointing to pixelated genitals
I hate it when they just talk and talk and don't start with the execution until half the video is over. I mean you can really tell if they're trying to push for the 10 minute mark
I've been a successful youtuber for around a year now, and the only tip you should know, is that you need to keep it consistent to your brand, and it needs to be the kind of thumbnail that your target audience would like. If your target audience is a bunch of degens and kids who click on bright image and only want you for your videos as opposed to liking you as a person, throw a picture of you basedjoking or some shit in every thumbnail. But if your target audience is someone who can appreciate the effort of your craft, or maybe it's a high effort documentary type video, make it minimalistic as possible while also proposing a question. I'm not good at explaining myself.. but tl;dr you have to dress for the job you want each video while keeping the underlying theme tied to your brand.

Kinda crazy how they just locked him up and threw away the key.
Although the people who committed the war crimes still walk free.
