    Default Introduce Me To Photoshop

    As we speak, I am downloading Photoshop. Can you guys hook me up with tools I might need, tutorials maybe, fonts, anything that you think will help me get rolling. Good looking, I've already got a dope idea for an album cover I'm about to make.

    can you download that shit for free? i got a trial version of adobe on my computer and want the realness

    also some of you people with the photoshop skills ought to get jobs as graphic artists - in the field that i work there are graphic artists that have careers and salaries from knowing how to do layout work, it's a valuable skill (and something i needs to learn as well), easy

    yea I like that too. I feel like the square in Q might be a little too big though, I'll have to shrink that down. I plan to put like 11 more pictures of Tip's face. I just need to work on the sharpening, it's making it look sloppy...Still, I think it's pretty good for my first work. I'm obviously trying to base it off this:



    notice the kinda um...what's the right word..shadowed (?) faces in the background? Like the light faces behind the main faces. Can anybody tell me how to do that? Maybe I'll make the background faces black and white...hmmm...I don't really want them to stand out, I just need them to spice up the background a lil bit. Also, I'd like to sharpen and brighten the borders a bit. Any tips or help would be much appreciated.

    this is a project i just finished for school. we had to hand draw a nascar car (i convinced him to let me use photoshop) with 15 sponsors on the side panel and a hood. the rims are sloppy, but other than that i think it's nice for my first completed work.








    ALSO: WHEN I WANT TO PRINT IT IT'S MAKING ME GO HORIZONTALLY (ACROSS THE 8' SIDE OF PAPER) HOW DO I MAKE IT GO VERTICALLY (ACROSS THE 11' SIDE OF PAPER)??

    WHAT'S GOING ON?
