hey, a few months ago i stumbled on a thread here asking how to make the effect in pic related, i had the following in a text file:

>Add text and leave it as top layer
>Duplicate layer: highlights
>Make it white
>Duplicate layer: shadows
>Make it black
>Move highlights to the left
>Move shadows to the right
>Apply a lot of blur to both highlights and shadows.
>Use masks in the original layer on the inside of the 'B' etc.

but i'm not sure if im doing this correctly in photoshop, can someone explain further?
ah bummer, i though it was possible to do on photoshop, but thanks for answering
technically you can but the amount of work will be insane and exhausting

What is this style called?
Video as an example. You have simple 3D objects, with no textures but with simple hard shadows.

This thread sucks ass, anyways i get inspiration from the things i see in my daily life because art is about expressing an idea, that's what seperates artists from designers for the sake of design

It looks like he is hosting them on YouTube. Could you drop a link to a course recap if he has one? Or just the course intro? ain't gonna buy but wanna see how bad it is.
yeah, i'd say a "course" that talks about "visualizing value" like its not a completely made up buzzword with no actual meaning is totally worth spending 100 fucking dollars on.
no you retard i guarantee you all the videos are him throwing up fancy flow charts about "profit" and "value" and saying big words to make himself sound like he knows what he's talking about.
do people seriously pay for this shit? what a load of garbage
still makes me laugh

>>learn to speak/present

not advocating for tagging buildings or vehicles, but I'd like to see some photos of graffiti you like, or your own recreations of them. so I can get a look at how they were drawn. Images made out of text lines. Something.

Post your pictos, glyphs, symbols, artsy texts or graphics.

For those who are still living under a rock, this is the Ultimate FOSS Alternative to Photoshop (unlike GIMP, it's actually Good).

4.3 adds a lot of new features, and I need you guys to tell me how good they really are.

Have you tried affinity photo? is it better or does it have something that Ps doesn't?

So far I've only tried the selection tools, which apart from the select outline option, seem to be a little worse than Photoshop's
File: Ps vs Affinity Selection.png (939 KB, 1600x1800)

939 KB PNG
Here's how I compared them, top is Ps and bot is Affinity Photo
I selected the background of an image with the wand and deleted it, in Ps I used the expand selection feature by 1 px, however affinity only has the grow selection option, and using with 1 px too the result is worse than Ps (sure my selection in Ps can still be better but this was just a quick 1 min edit for comparison) As you can see, the edges around the Ps edit are much better, both images are at 100% zoom so there are no pixel shenenigans going on. I also tried growing the selection by 2 px and using 1 - 2px of feather but none look as good as Ps.

Also when making this image with affinity I noticed the move tool is better here, as it gives you information like by how many pixels layers overlap and other things.

In what other areas is affinity photo worse or better? or is there perhaps a better way to select with affinity?

I use Affinity for everything, if you know how to design you can do it with anything. Affinity is a once time purchase and isn't bloatware botnet like CC, fucking aids
In Photo you have to click "Refine", then you fine tune the feather and the smoothing. You can also mask the foreground and background. I haven't used PS in years but you can achieve the very same results in photo.

What are your criticisms of this emblem I have made for the organization called, The Pact.
It looks like the spiderman venom mask from the thumbnail, the sword is hard to see, there's a disconnection between the all the shapes, also there's some lines inside the shapes that are too thin to be noticed and make the design look amateur maybe just make some sketches on paper iterate and refine before jumping into the software you're using.
Cringe pseudo-heraldry
If you want to use heraldry, do it properly, make it blazonable, follow the rules etc
If you want a seal or something, do that properly
But don't use shit like this that fails to be either one

Is Intel still better than AMD for Adobe stuff?
1 reply omitted. Click here to view.
There is no reason for Intel to be better than AMD for adobe and I don't think there ever was, at least since the early 2000s.
i heard some people said AMD is not optimized for Adobe and Intel is
Sage this shit, gay ass OP.
Read the technicals breh
AMD is computationally superior for productivity across the board, dollar for dollar
Unless you render videos in Premier, no. And even then the difference is negligible.

Why won't you use adobe dimension to show off your shitty logo ?
Cuz Dimensions is about 10yrs late to the photorealistic-design-wrapping-for-presentation game. It will take 2x more clicks & 2x more minutes then slapping it on one of the thousand photorealistic PSD files I have. Adobe keeps trying to increase cross-program usage and commercial design is all about decreasing inefficient work flow.
Because it'd look worse than it already is if I were to use it.
Can you point me in the direction of some of those .psd's?
Try searching for mockup psds on google, you can find a lot for free
Elaborate, this program is way too easy to use instead of other 3d programs which are complicated (in a good way) and not for everyone

how can i take a 2d animation of a cardiogram like pic related and make it 3d so i can see it from any angle. the idea is for it to move while i change views or angles, to make it a 3d animation. how can i do this?
it depends of what type of animation you have, if its an aftereffects project you can just make the layer 3d and add a camera.

Ive been using photoshop for a while and now Id like to learn illistrator mainly for logo design, what are some tutorials you guys think i should start with?

If you can pay, Lynda.com has the best Adobe Creative Suite tutorials...
"how to design logos in adobe illustrator"
check out david airey's blog and book, don't be one of those designers who jump to the software instead of doing sketches and iterations first.

CS2 is free. what is wrong with you?
gimp more like simp
Cc programs relie more on the gpu rather than cpu and ram
Seriously use Blender. Unless you're doing pixel-level editing or stuff that uses the magic wand tool, Blender is much more capable than GIMP. Scaling, cropping, color grading, masking, and compositing are much easier to do in Blender because it has a non-destructive node-based workflow unlike GIMP.
