8 KB,
Hey guys, I have a kind of urgent question so I'd really appreciate your help.

I'm temporarily limited to a PC with the Adobe CS3 suite, and as far as I can tell Photoshop can't handle anything more than 3.2 gigs of ram.
Is this due to the antiquity of the version, which in turn means that updating to a newer version will allow me to utilize at least 8gb of ram? Or is the only solution setting a new scratch disk with plenty of free space?

Thanks in advance.

I believe that is standard for software in 32bit windows.
>>
>>259620
I'm working on 64bit Windows 7.
Photoshop itself is 32bit, but I don't think that would affect RAM management, since that's the OS' job.

Do the more recent suites also come in 64bit?

http://www.zdnet.com/article/clearing-up-the-3264-bit-memory-limit-confusion/

looks like it's actually 4gb limit, but adobe had limited it to 3.2 for some reason.

But yes, a 64bit version of photoshop will allow more ram usage. I think 64bit didn't come until CS4 or CS5.

Why do you need more than that anyway? Unless you are doing Billboards or Tradeshow graphics everyday, there really isn't much of a need for that much ram. Even then, there are many ways around that when working...

Hi, I'm an illustrator and I'm going to Poland this summer to take some graphic design classes. I'm doing this because I want to be able to understand more about design and understand what makes for good and bad design. Graphic design seems really intimidating because everyone who's in it already knows what's good and has very strong opinions and I feel like a dingo dongo dingus.

How do I get into design in a way that I can incorporate it into my life as an illustrator?

Hi. If you're a beginner looking to improve and do bigger things, you'll have to look about the basics of art : color theory and perspective.
GD is something creative, so there is no rule, only guidelines that are proved to work on all thing.

A quick note to hopefully help you feel better. Good and bad are really subjective within any creative field; graphic design is no different. You shouldn’t feel bad/worried about liking something, even if everyone else seems to hate it, don’t ignore other people but don’t just accept that things are good or bad because someone else says so. Have taste, ask questions and learn how to express why you like something.

Answering your question though. I don’t know much about the ethos of an illustrator but...

License-Registration.jpg
581 KB,
My company sells products (5-10/y) that come with special software. I am currently working on the GUI and was wondering what type of licensing I would need for fonts. Can we buy a font once and include it into all our software, or do we need a web-font like license? How would that work?

I can't really find an answer anywhere, whenever I search for the terms 'software' and 'licensing' together all I get is some debate over whether fonts are software or not.

you can email the owner of the font and ask him or maybe just use an 'open type font' (e.g. gandhi sans, droid sans, roboto, noto sans, fira sans, source & source code pro)

I didn't but I've managed designers who have. On some of the teams I've managed the designers who went to school for it did so to learn the software but it seems like there were a lot of tricks they weren't taught. What has put me in leadership roles on these teams is my project management, prioritization, and problem solving skills that were acquired through a lot of on the job experience in very fast paced environments. As well as my ability to inspire other designers to want to challenge themselves rather than just be a "dickhead manager/senior designer"....

The only thing bad about Photoshop for a menu is the lack of robust text formatting options. It's not like OP is putting together a multi page catalog.

In this scenario, using only photoshop is fine. Everything gets turned to raster before it goes on press anyway.

Get a black and white leather texture.

Make sure everything you want to look like leather is below this texture in your layers.

set the layer style of the leather texture to something like soft light (others work too, it depends on what colours you want the leather to be and what finished effect you're going for) and have layers underneath define the colour/pattern you want to achieve.

Done.

Or if you want some specific leather texture you can use a texture as the base and then put your stuff over and use some layers styles...

You aren't designing on the mast page right now, you just have it highlighted in the pages window.
You can see what page you have selected by the blue box surrounding the number of the page.

To select the master page you need to double click where it says "A-Master" in the pages window.

As for the pdf issue, I can't say until I see your export settings.

what are you talking about? no filter will give you the effect you want.

if you're talking about the stuff at the top of the 1st image, take a badly underexposed JPEG and slam up the exposure in photoshop.

otherwise, it's just collaging elements with flatly rendered 3d models and handpainting the 'effect' lines in.
