The Random Topic

Post by shadwblitz on Mon Sep 27, 2010 12:03 am

I figured I needed a place to discuss about random topics. BUT PLEASE, KEEP YOUR SANITY INTACT. You can talk about anything here, but not like "SPAMMMMMMMM OMG MUDKIPS" Smile

Introduction aside, SOMEONE TEACH ME HOW TO BE GOOD WITH PHOTOSHOP D:<!!

I would definitely recommend Paint.Net and Gimp as starter programs, once you are fluent in those two, you should be totally okay to start trying your hand to Photoshop. Also, hit up Youtube, I know watching How-To Videos really helped me as far as developing certain techniques like learning how to use the different blending modes for layers to attain different effects.

I learned from my sister, actually. I started in Gr.7. But she just taught me really, really basic things like multiplying layers and how to use the brush tool. (I didn't find out about locking layers until I asked in Gr.8... >_>)

I really only learned how to use photoshop well by doing random things and testing different functions. Once you know how to use it, it's amazing. I've never tried using gimp or paint.net before, though. It looks complex, lol.

Just do little itty bitty things and you'll get used to it. =) Try to ignore all the fancy-smanshy stuff and learn it all one by one. It helps if you just build on what you know. Like, using the brush tool set on normal mode and then eventually trying other modes like multiply, colour, or overlay.

It's very easy and useful once you use it for awhile. Trust me, it'll make you say stuff like, "wow, I'm so glad I know how to use this" after you do.

You see the + and - sign on the right side of every post?
thats rep points if you have higher reps you are like more treated/liked and more thanked by other members it shows how much you contribute to the forum Smile ... something like that

Points shows your activeness and based on this:
Gain per profile message : 1 point
Gain per friend : 2 points
Gain per day since registration : 1 point
Gain per post: 1 point
Gain per topic starter: 3 points

I second this, paint.net is an easy to use program that can be very good with the right plugins Surprised

Yes, it's all I use RMVX-wise. Very useful and effective. Easier than Photoshop and Gimp 2 to do easy, small graphics editing.

I'd rather use something not too memory-extensive for spriting. I'm not doing CGs; just sprites. XD

SPAMMMMMM! OMG MUDKIPS! Laughing

I don't think I can work on Photoshop (or GIMP) when talking about pixel art. So, yeah, PDN all the way.

Thats my answer also. I never use photoshop unless im going to do graphical effects Wink
Thing i love about pdn the most is that is has the co-ordinates of the pointer at the bottom and the size of your selection in pixels; really helps when moving sprites about.
