>Can somebody photoshop X? Can somebody make me a logo?
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.

>Can I post some of my work for critique?
There is usally a critique/What-Are-You-Working-On thread, and that is where work for critique go.

>Can somebody find [font]?
http://www.mediafire.com/download/027xjs3ujvyqxmd/Fonts.zip
also check out your local torrent site or the font-share thread.
Remember to share and not just take. Also remember that using liscensed fonts in commercial works is a bad idea.

Every single pixel editing software I can find is to expensive for me rn. I cannot find a good free one either.
Does anyone know a good free pixel editing software.

How would I go about making an image's file size larger? Should I use certain colors/patterns or what?

I'm trying to make an obnoxiously large image that will take an extremely long time to load. Pic somewhat related, I actually have it up to 50k pixels tall now, but it's still only 700kb in size.

i think changing the compression could be more faster, or maybe some steganography method -link below

if it's lossless, pure noise is theoretically incompressible, and will thus have a good chance of being large. otherwise, just add a shitton of metadata or something.
>>
>>300225
Why?
>>
>>300225
GIF is a bad choice since it uses some techniques like color mapping to reduce file size (every pixel maps a value to a predefined pallette).
This is also how gif does transparency.
PNG on the other hand uses separate 'channels' (think of them as layers with blend modes) and does not uses gif's color palette technique.
Save that inage as a png that supports transparency, and make sure not to save it as interlaced and it becomes huge.

It's objectively shit and this is bait. This logo would be immeasurably better if the outer curves mimicked the curves of the lettering better. In fact it should have been drawn by initially enlarging the paths of the letters.

Hey /gd/

I'm studying graphic design for 3 years now, and we still haven't touched web design or web development,
so I figured it's time I go out on my own.

I'm good with designing stuff, I usually work in Ai,Id and Ps, mostly logos and posters.
So where do I start with web design?
As far as I've noticed most of websites are made on Wordpress, which even a halfwit can do with a simple tutorial.
So what's the point of learning CSS, javascript, HTML, if there's already "free" service that saves you much more time?

I need some web developers here to help me understand where to even start with all this,
I still feel like (as a designer) using wordpress to make website from scratch is a bit of a cheating.

Using a cms like wordpress allows you to not worry about making a back end so that your normie client can update his content without knowing anything about website development.
You don't have to implement every shitty basic fonctionality that everyone expects from a website like rss feed generation, comment moderation and so on.
It allows you to focus on producing value, in this case to design a theme.
You still need to learn web development stuff to do that.
You could start by reading the theme development documentation to get an idea on what you need to be able to do, then learn html, css, javascript and php in roughly that order
Learning how to setup and operate web servers and databases would also be a plus, although it's really not that complicated to get a wordpress installation running.
>>
Alright, thank you all for responds, it helps a lot actually.

I've decided to take it slowly and go through online courses for dummies. Web devolpemet seems really wanted these days so I think it's worth it.

>>299504
Found most of courses, will go through them

>>299505
Saved, will visit them all once I handle basics

Does anyone know of a Good simplistic wordpress portfolio with out all the extra stuff added to it?

For example: https://matthias.myportfolio.com/projects

I like this one but I want it to be where I click on the thumbnail and the image shows up rather than take me to another page.

Are there such portfolios like that for wordpress?
>>
I'm in the opposite situation, I know HTML, CSS, JS, etc. but I don't know design concepts, are there any good quick guides to get someone up to speed on having some basic design skills for web dev? I'm not trying to become a master artist, just have a good enough eye for design so my websites don't like they're from 1990.

Hello /gd/
Is there a better page than Pixeden for Mockups?
