PostSubject: Frequently Asked Graphics Questions - By Sir Gudi   Fri Feb 08, 2008 5:32 pm

What programs should i use for graphics?
The most commonly used prorgams are The GIMP and Adobe Photoshop. Photoshop is a very expensive program, wheras The GIMP is the free, broken down version. GIMP can be downloaded at http://www.GIMP.org A Photoshop 30 day trial and more information can be found at http://www.adobe.com

Where do i get brushes and how do i use them?
Brushes for The Gimp and Photoshop can be found at http://www.deviantart.com To use Photoshop brushes just open the .abr file that you download. To use GIMP brushes you need to move them to The GIMP's brush folder. This is normally found ...\gimp 2.0\share\gimp\brushes. This may vary.

Where do i get the pictures people use?
These pictures are called "renders". They have a transparent background so people can easily use them in pieces of art or signatures. A lot of these can be found at http://www.planetrenders.net There are more places to get them, but this is the largest website and the most popular.

I keep seeing signatures with a lot of random shapes and colours, what are these?
These "random shapes and colours" are usually parts of C4D's. These are random shapes made in Cinema 4D. They are usually used to create a focal point and give the signature depth and detail. I suggest not using these until you have a good knowledge of layer effects/blending modes. These can be found at http://www.planetrenders.net and http://www.deviantart.com
