No problem Noodle.

Just a quick t post to let you all know I've updated the first post, the Nav is now a bit clearer and cleaner, and it's much easier to find what you're after. Also, keep posting links / site you like to use, they're always handy ;)

Just thought I'd drop in here to say at some point this week I'll finally get around to posting video links in the second post of this topic for the "You Suck At Photoshop" series.

Also, for those of you who use CS4 and want to learn how to properly use the Content Aware Scaling tool, I learned how to use it properly and effectively a while ago. If anyone wants then I can write up a quick tutorial, though there are some videos I could point you to as well.

About the over 9000 internets, it's a 4chan in-joke of sorts, taken from Dragonball Z, as well as Dubya's interpretation of the web.

And as for the car, what if I take a car from SA, pan it to match the pic, and then do some touch-up work?

Well the main problem here is the quality of the car stock, I didn't get any good ones....so I decided to reduce the beauty of Sb Sc poster as well. If anyone could get me a high quality stock I may try upon it one more time.

LOL serously why did you use those filters just using that real car without blurring/filtering it and then changing the color would have done a great job.... nice job anyways... :)

LOLZOR! Now that's what I call gangsta... :awesome:

I'll do my own attempt at this in a few days; as for your shoop, it is quite nice, although it needs some touching up and stuff.

I've actually been using stock.xchange for years, but I never posted here because i didn't think many people cared for stock images :/ Awesome site nonetheless.

Just had a flick through hongkiat, and it looks awesome, thanks for the input evo ;)

I actually lost the link to the site, had bookmarked it on my old hard drive. Couldn't find it Google cause sxc and stocks kept giving me links to stock exchange site. Just recently hit me to try Sxc and Photoshop, silly ol' me :P

Not quite sure what you're asking tox, do you want to know what vectors are / what vector is? Or, do do you want our opinion on them? I'll give both anyway.



What are vectors?

Vector images are images generated by a program such as photoshop (or, more successfully, illustartor). What separates theses images from regular images (such as jpg, png, gif) is that they can be resized, up or down, as many times as you like with no loss of quality, at all. A common use for this method would be a company logo. They might need to put this logo on a letter (quite small) or on a billboard (huge) One single vector image could handle both of these easily, because you only need one file, which won't go down in quality.
Any image created by using the shape tool in photoshop, or generated through using paths, is a vector.
Vector images, though, don't hold a universally viewable file type. That means you can't save them for viewing on your PC without special software (PS, illustrator, etc) And they also will not display for web users.. The most common file types for vectors, though are .eps and .ai .

What do I think about vectors?
being a graphic designer / student of I'm pretty much obliged to say I think they're awesome, and far more versatile as far as industry is concerned, since 9 / 10 times, logos are required to be vectors, instead of regular 'raster' images.
I also think that many people have the tendency to call some images 'vector art' - this only applies, rally if the image is 100% vector, and can be scaled as such, with no quality loss. That is not to say a combination of images derived from vectors and raster images can't look good, it's just a matter of me being a bit funny about terminology, as most designers do tend to be ;)

I'll add some images to help you understand better if you like?

Fuck it, here:

That's pretty much it, but if you wanna see for yourself, download this .eps and open it in photoshop at 100x100, and 1500x1500, and see how they look the same.

Not as such, no. Moar liek logos are vectors....most of the time. Like, the Grand theft auto logo would be a vector, originally. Because R* need it to be huge for billboard ads, and tiny for game boxarts, stickers etc. However, when it's put onto a screenshot, it's no longer a vector, since it's been made into a jpeg. ('raster' image) It's only a vector when it's in a vector file. Moving it from a vector file to a jpeg stops it being vector, even though the source was vector.
