/gd/ what's your opinion on photo manipulation? Is it considered a form of graphic design if done right?

Yes stupid question but I'm curious.

your picture is not a good example, really shitty desu
Generally the at the professional level (like the metro ad posted above and not the shit-tier rainbow-out-of-the-eye abomination you posted) photomanipulation is done by specialists who all have god-tier photoshop skills, commonly along with pretty good 3D skills (usually C4D) to go along with it. Some may do "graphic design" as well but mostly these types of individuals are classified as illustrators.

There's also people who specialize in photomanipulation and recoloring, usually for the beauty and fashion industries, but they're usually called retouchers, and again they're usually specialists.
Use your time to photo editing (lightning, color, etc) or photography instead that more useful to GD.
Yes it is. You are composing an image. Simple as that. The question you need to be asking is "what is the difference between Art and Design?"

How do you take an entire Indesign file and put it into keynote so you can edit in animations for the presentation?

(I like all the text editing in ID, does adobe acrobate do this?)
Tell whoever is asking you to do this to stick it right up their ass.

How about a Telegram group?

Post your nickname or text me at @AlmazBisenbaev and I will add you

I use to have a small program that made fractal images after numbers were input into it on my computer I forgot the name of it, I rememeber finding it on a lightweight art tools website does anyone have the program?

Here goes nothing... Thx Anon
It was essential in my graphics artillery, only generated spectacular fractal. Wild guess between 25-50mb. Thx Anon

Yes, I'd really like to find out what you were using as well. Unfortunately, it seems that the site lightweightarttools.org no longer exists.
Only one I know is Mandelbulb 3d. It's really nice tho

i made a little picture and want to ask, how it looks and what i could make better!

Thanks :)

Thank you!
>If I was you, I would focus on finding better, unique and interesting looking ideas
There are so many templates that look like OP's image that it doesn't matter that he actually made it from scratch, looks like an overused template
Yeah, you're right.
This really looks like an overused template, even if i created this from scratch.
It looks like a good 3D render, but not as art.
IMO your biggest shortfall is the font. This is too generic to fit this style. If you're looking to emulate the '80s style, go with something thick and heavy. If you need inspiration, check blogs like desert chrome and Chrome & Lightning.
You should definitely have the laser cut through the entire image, would look cooler IMO.

I am not a graphic designer, but a programmer. This is what I have for a DnD party management app. What do you think.

The Alignment text will be the same as below and the other two shield are placeholders for movement speed (a boot) and passive perception (an eye).

Generally, what do you think about the layout? Not the art itself.

This is what I was going for originally btw.
I don't know what are your writing this stuff in, but it would be a good idea to maybe start with a library that gives you a default formatting and work your way up there... it would help you with the basic hierarchy and proportions
I see. Well, your direction is more apparent now. But I think you missed some things.
First, you made the colors a bit too bright—note how in this pic, the text color is dark red, and overall there are no bright colors.
Also, this mimics a scroll, apparently—something I didn't quite grasp from your UI. What looks wrong in it is the text shadows, the background pattern, and the gold rectangles (because it's unclear what they resemble).
Last but not least, the fonts. You picked Arial, and it's a very modern-looking font, more fit for infographics and nutrition tables. The thick minimalist icons and contrast tables also didn't fit very well. In this pic you can see they used some serif font (like Times New Roman/Georgia), and a more old-fashioned sans serif font like Verdana, to give the chart a medieval/fantasy feel; italics also help this. There's no icons or symbols, just plain text and horizontal lines.
To answer your question, I do like the layout but god damn that is ugly as shit.

How can I stop being a tutorial monkey?

I can't seem to bring myself to design anything and when I do it looks like shit.

Also how do you come up with what to design?
2 replies omitted. Click here to view.
Thumbnail and sketch as much as possible. I don't care if you think you're shit at drawing, get off the computer until you actually know exactly what you're designing.
Just start applying what you know to solve visual problems. Most student work usually tries to tackle basic forms of this, ie posters, brochures, ads, things with a very limited scope that still need to communicate something. You can also troll around on Dribbble or Behance, find something that catches your eye, and make your own interpretation of whatever the project was.
fuck that's a good response
Currently in the military going for my second job title as a multimedia illustrator (just a graphic designer). Now I dont consider myself creative at all (former electronic maintainer) but as with anything in life, if you want to be able to do something well you have to focus on understanding the "why" instead of "how". From there you can get a sense of what to do. As for you work looking like shit you have to practice. Spend hours each day drawing, recreate images, take inspiration from those images and create something yourself. Start with sketches, create thumbnails (SUPER basic layout in which you scribble general areas of where things will be positioned) and just slowly work on it. Biggest problem Ive been seeing my soldiers have is thinking they are hot shit because theyve been drawing longer than I have and when they chalk up their shit lazy work to me having "natual talent" it goes to show they dont take pride in what they do. Anything worth while is never easy and it doesnt happen over night.
Also I apologize about my shit typing, old laptop and the keys are wearing out >.< Happy Hunting

I am making a website based on a letter and I need my photoshop text to look like a letter, how do I go about doing this?

Pic related, here's photoshop vs a normal letter.

How do I achieve this effect other than changing the font obviously?

Who's handwriting looks like a typewriter?
Are you actually braindead? If you don't change the font, it will look like a printed paper, not a letter. I don't understand what you want from us. Also you ask for our help and then call us morons for trying to help you. Either this is bait or you need a reality check.
This is easy ...
1. Go to store. Buy a pen.
2. Find a writing desk and sit at it.
3. Pick up the pen you just purchased. If it is in plastic or another type of container, make sure to remove the pen from the plastic or the container before using the pen.
4. Laying a blank piece of paper onto the writing desk, carefully write down the text from your first picture, in cursive, onto a blank piece of paper.
i don't understand where you 2 are getting this from
please don't prove an arrogant prick right
>"How do I achieve this effect other than changing the font obviously?"

o.k. ... we'll try another approach to make your photoshop text which we'll call pic "A" look like the normal letter which we'll call Pic "B".

1.Pick up pic "A" and set it aside

2. Pick up pic "B"

3. The pic in your hand should be an identical copy of the pic "B" that you wanted your pic to look like.

4. Do NOT change any fonts.

You're welcome OP
even i know when he says "other than changing the font" he mean i know i have to do this already

still think he's a twat tho
