Oh man was that Narc game any good? I never played it but wanted to so bad!

I wouldn't trust pirate bay with stuff like that. Too many bad/malicious cracks.

because you don't need photoshop unless you work in the graphics industry/are a professional photographer:

otm, gimp does 90% of what 90% of people would use photoshop for.

kenan, Tuesday, 16 October 2007 17:09 (eleven years ago) Permalink

let's try Gimp then, thanks

BTW You can set slsk to unblock .exe files.

Noodle Vague, Tuesday, 16 October 2007 17:26 (eleven years ago) Permalink

After you get facile with Photoshop, GIMP is really a major pain to use. There's a TON of stuff Photoshop does that GIMP can't do.

i know some guy who unlocked photoshop demo with googled serial. maybe it only works until the activation deadline passes.

PAINT.NET BATCHES

it does like 95% of what photoshop does in an intuitive way, for free

possibly the only piece of freeware i'd consider donating money to:

obv if everyone who was giving these inane photoshop percentages actually knew enough abt it to have any idea what they were talking abt they'd be using it themselves. dont fuck around w/that free shit - just torrent up some photoshop.

jhøshea, Tuesday, 16 October 2007 18:03 (eleven years ago) Permalink

I'd totally recommend getting Photoshop Elements unless you are a professional user, in which case you'd probably have Photoshop anyway.

^^^ photoshop hardman

DG, Tuesday, 16 October 2007 18:12 (eleven years ago) Permalink

Yeah, steal away. I'm just saying, unless you're someone who knows what is not in Elements and why you need the professional edition, it's a great £50 piece of software that basically is Photoshop.

I wouldn't trust pirate bay with stuff like that. Too many bad/malicious cracks.

I don't buy this. If you look at the comments, people will jump on crap pretty quickly. If it's an established torrent without people knocking it, you should be fine.

I used gimp when I was running linux, and it was just fine and didn't have any big learning curve or anything. But I have to have the adobe suite stuff for work, anyway, so may as well just use it at home, too.

kenan, Tuesday, 16 October 2007 18:17 (eleven years ago) Permalink

and yeah, I got CS3 from oink, works like a charm.

kenan, Tuesday, 16 October 2007 18:18 (eleven years ago) Permalink

you can also go to giganews and get a usenet account and pick it up off of there. that way, the RIAA or some other police org can't nail you for distribution.

I use Super Paint

what would you be using a graphic editor for? just resizing / cropping etc or something more technical?

i use gimp for everything but my everything isn't much.

(degas elite > deluxe paint)

the best question, yes. You can do a lot more with photoshop, obv, and if you snag CS3 get the whole suite and bask in the warm glow of PS integration with Flash and create one-click XML-driven Flash photo galleries, and cool stuff like that.

I use photoshop to create DCS 2.0 multichannel art files.

Ah, see, i'm web guy. You need it even more than I do.

kenan, Tuesday, 16 October 2007 19:36 (eleven years ago) Permalink

There are only three ways I can think of that anyone may obtain for free that which normally costs money: as a gift, by theft, or by accidental discovery of a lost article. Not one of these methods has the slightest relation to how normal or hardworking you may be.

I used to use Degas Elite and it was incredible. It had limited pixel animating capabilities which was possibly the bet thing ever.

Will M., Tuesday, 16 October 2007 19:38 (eleven years ago) Permalink

Ha, I think it was Degas that I mucked about on at my French Exchange student's Atari ST. I made some squiggles and the family got very excited, said things like "Zut Alors! Matisse!" and took photos of the screen.

Aimless, you forgot MAGIC.

Alba, Tuesday, 16 October 2007 19:43 (eleven years ago) Permalink

Alba, that crossed my mind a few moments later, in another context.

Aimless, Tuesday, 16 October 2007 19:45 (eleven years ago) Permalink

Yeah! It was for Atari ST. It was leagues above other paint programs back in the day. I mean, you could custom-make little patterns in that pattern box, test all of the text options before laying it down, create custom line types (like, if you wanted one with long line short line long line short line etc), plus the animation... oh the animation. SO GOOD.

Will M., Tuesday, 16 October 2007 19:47 (eleven years ago) Permalink

Also, the "rays" was amazing, it was like putting down a line, then when you click, it starts a new line from the original point. Why isn't paint as awesome as degas elite?! Also, k-line was like polygon but you didn't have to close the shape! clearly useful!

i used to use limewire but it might be outdated by now.

I don't even use my (legit) copy of CS2 anymore.

Lightroom is good enough that I'm willing to fork over $299 for a retail copy.

ok i guess not.

Lightroom is brilliant. The editing works much better in 1.1, and it finally has curves. All it needs is (feathered) selections and I'd be able to forget about Photoshop for most stuff.

ts: lightroom vs aperture

s1ocki, Tuesday, 16 October 2007 21:29 (eleven years ago) Permalink

lightroom! Aperture is good, but it's slow and makes the fans on my mac go nuts. The searching on Lightroom is aeons faster as well.

stet, Tuesday, 16 October 2007 21:30 (eleven years ago) Permalink

Lightroom - the controls are more Photoshop-like (thus intuitive) and robust. I found it much easier to sharpen images, use curves, alter colors, etc.. It's basically all of the good photo tools from Camera Raw and Photoshop without all the other stuff that's more useful for graphic artists and designers. I haven't tried to dodge and burn images - that may be the missing feathered selections stet refers to.

Aperture probably still has a superior filing system, but I've not made good use.

milo z, Tuesday, 16 October 2007 21:34 (eleven years ago) Permalink

good use of it*

milo z, Tuesday, 16 October 2007 21:35 (eleven years ago) Permalink

I use Photoshop Elements at home and Paint.net at work.

See? You can make hardcore gangsta watermarks with Paint such as the one I did here.
