All requests for photoshopping belong on /wsr/ - Worksafe Requests or /r/ - Adult Requests. /gd/ doesn't take requests or do free or even paid work sometimes. However, if you're new at something, asking "HOW can I X?" rather than "CAN YOU make X?" will give you better results.

There is usally a critique/What-Are-You-Working-On thread, and that is where work for critique go.

Remember to share and not just take. Also remember that using liscensed fonts in commercial works is a bad idea.

Ok guys I could do with a little help if possible. Basically I'm looking for a way to simply edit photos in this style. While retaining the original resolution. I used a VaporWave editor on Android called VaporCam but unfortunately it drastically reduced the resolution. I'm mostly looking to edit wallpapers purely in the way highlighted here with the colour gradient (originally the pape was monochrome).

Anyone got any advice?

Thanks mate! So would that be background or foreground or transparency and can u give me a bit of a walkthrough on how to do the blending thing?
I have troubles with my internet connection, so can't post screenshots at the moment.

It's really as simple as I said. These are the steps you need to take to do what you want to do.

Get GIMP on your computer, download it, install it.
Open your wallpaper in GIMP.
Make a new layer.
Fill the layer with your gradient.
Play with opacity and blending mode.

Opacity and blending mode should be in the Layers pannel, usually on the right side of the screen. There are various blending modes, such as Overlay, Addition, Colour Burn, Darken and so on... Opacity is a numerical value, ranging from zero percent (0%) to one hundred percent (100%).

Your wallpaper would be backgrond and the gradient layer should be above in the layers pannel.

thanks bro I'll screenshot this! I figured out a way to retain the quality. the resolution it saves at isn't far off really. and the quality loss is easily compensated for with a slight blur.
Okay, glad to help you. Cheers!
also, FYI, normal blur blurs a bit too much n can be heavy on the eyes. 1.0 gaussian blur is much better. does the job and is easier to look at. thanks again!

Maybe it's not such a good idea to post this here but I will
The case is I'm not good at drawing and editing a bit but I'm interested in the graphic design career for the simple fact of the money you can earn, it's worth noting that I live in Mexico, my problem is if I necessarily need to know all that or over time In the faculty, he taught me so much or I chose another career
It's never late to learn something, and you can learn this also. I'd suggest you start learning Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator.
Learn what's raster and what's vector image.
It's a broad term. Post more questions, I'll answer them.

Post the best/most aesthetically pleasing flags. Old thread reached the image limit.

My contribution would be the Austrian flag, very striking and has an amazing legend.
>According to legend, the flag was invented by Duke Leopold V of Austria as a consequence of his fighting during the Siege of Acre. After a fierce battle, his white surcoat was completely drenched in blood. When he removed his belt, the cloth beneath remained unstained, revealing the combination of red-white-red. So taken was he by this singular sight that he adopted the colors and scheme as his banner

Good god.
I'm assuming the town is named after Montpellier, France, in which case they have a typo for a name in addition to having a flag that's worse than aids.

Hey guys, I design logos and typefaces for a living but I find these can be very time consuming. I also do hand lettering and calligraphy and I'm wondering if theres a quicker way to make money using these skills. Also I feel like we should have a lettering critique thread, so post your work and discuss ways of making money doing lettering.
2 replies omitted. Click here to view.
Can you tell me how you get good at this? Is it just practice? Even my normal day to day writing sucks.
Yes, it's just practice. I started off doing calligraphy like brush lettering then got into blackletter, italics and copperplate learning from youtube tutorials. Then just started sketching them out rather than using ink pens. My everyday handwriting sucks too, its not really the same thing at all.
tattoo guns are weird, they feel a lot more like a paint brush than what one would expect.
I have 2 friends that became tattoo artists, both of them spent around a year after getting their guns working on friends, themselves and fruits before starting working at shops.
it's a whole lifestyle though, it might be for you, it might not
besides selling fonts at creative market try getting into selling your own merch (way better if you set your own shop instead of using a pod site)
here's an old thread with all sort of questions about that

What do you think? It’s a bar for gamers.

Font is Bumpy Pixels btw. It's free for commercial use iirc
font is already but the kerning is too tight. give it some breathing room.
*is alright
I think that for such blocky design it's alright. The text looks solid together, while still being readable.

Still, it's not my design. I'm just giving feedback.
You're wrong.

They're not even evenly spaced. It looks bad.

What are you, retarded?
oh wait
looks nice but form follows function. looks like it would require a bloated implementation of JS to get those shadows and that bar at the top working. the grey text 'order summary' to the side indicates to the user that they cant highlight that text which they might want to do.
perhaps a better design would be to have the card form on the right and on the left a live updating receipt that includes in the same box things like shipping address, name ph number and order summary that is clearly and easily able to be copy pasted. before buying things people want to check that they are getting the right things, so they might want to copy paste those lists all at once, send off an email and verify before making the purchase.

I'm not a /gd/ guy, I'm a software guy btw. software guys always notice horrible web design.
>looks nice but form follows function. looks like it would require a bloated implementation of JS to get those shadows and that bar at the top working.
Obviously not a software guy... That can be done in pure css.

doing this for a thing. thoughts? it's a scheduling form for iphone repair.
Not him but:

-Not sure if I like the way you smoothed the two edges on the blue box. It just looks too much like a random choice you made in an attempt to make it look dynamic somehow

-Drop shadow on Submit button is way too big. Think about why would it cast a shadow so big like that? Probably don't need it at all though.

-Not sure what to think about the slider section but I don't think it works. At the very least the dotted line needs to be more uniform. Each segment should be the same size.

-Make all of the input fields align

yeah, sure

use ASEprite or something like SPR Viewer
thanks for replying senpai, tried both of these just now but they don't open it either :(, any other that might work?
I can assure you ASEprite opens .spr files because you can output your sprites from there as .spr
and this should as well
maybe your files are corrupted?
you can also try googling for a program that batch converts them to png/jpg

It's pronounced cunst though.

What do you call the type of lettering on the poster behind Dakota Johnson? How can I find more examples of it?
6 replies and 1 image omitted. Click here to view.
There's certainly a direction going on there, it's not just random.

OP I don't know if there's a name for that, but I think just by looking at it, and examples of futurism or dadaism, you can start to toy around with that style without proper terminology.

My friend who's a much better designer than me (or was when I last saw him in college) always just spent hours playing with design in whatever way he thought of. I spent too much time overthinking things. You get the idea.
What? There is certainly an idea behind the design of the poster. It can even be replicated in real life by taking upside-down letters and hanging them from a horizontal pole with threads in different lengths.
Oh yeah? And what's the idea?
>taking upside-down letters and hanging them
That's not what I'd call an idea, unless you are a kindergarten teacher looking for fun new ways to past the time in class. And where are you seeing upside down letters?
>implies superiority
>past the time
I didn't imply superiority, that's just your inferiority complex getting triggered as a result of your inability to muster any argument beyond your diligent hunt for trivial typos. By the way, good job.

I got an interview coming up for a job as a graphic and digital designer, it's my first interview ever. I have a pretty solid online portfolio, but the interviewer mailed me with "Bring your portfolio" and it threw me off, is she going to expect me to bring a physical portfolio? My plan was to just bring my computer and show my website with my works and go through/ talk about them in depth (She has most likely already seen them as I gave a link on my resume). Am I going to look like a total tool if I don't bring a physical portfolio? I don't have one, but I could make one as the interview is on Thursday next week, but I'm afraid it's going to be haphazardly brought together as I don't really have time/money to print out complete books or folders professionally.

I understand that print works it probably better to be seen in print, and there is an added sensation of feel with a physical portfolio. I just feel overwhelmed and so not ready for this... How fucked am I on a scale of 1-10 if I just bring my computer?
