Moderators

There are senior members on the forums who serve as Moderators. These volunteers keep the board organized and moving.
Moderators are authorized to: (in order of increasing severity)
Move posts to the correct forums. Many times, members post in the wrong forum. These off-topic posts may impede the normal operation of the forum.
Edit posts. Moderators will edit posts that are offensive or break any of the House Rules.
Delete posts. Posts that cannot be edited to comply with the House Rules will be deleted.
Restrict members. This is one of the last punishments before a member is banned. Restrictions may include placing all new posts in a moderation queue or temporarily banning the offender.
Ban members. The most severe punishment. Three or more moderators or administrators must agree to the ban for this action to occur. Banning is reserved for very severe offenses and members who, after many warnings, fail to comply with the House Rules. Banning is permanent. Bans cannot be removed by the moderators and probably won't be removed by the administration.


The Rules

1. Warez, copyright violation, or any other illegal activity may NOT be linked or expressed in any form. Topics discussing techniques for violating these laws and messages containing locations of web sites or other servers hosting illegal content will be silently removed. Multiple offenses will result in consequences. File names are not required to discuss your issues. If filenames are copyright then do not belong on these forums & will be edited out or post removed. Picture sample attachments in posts must not include copyright infringement.

2. Spamming and excessive advertising will not be tolerated. Commercial advertising is not allowed in any form, including using in signatures.

3. There will be no excessive use of profanity in any forum.

4. There will be no racial, ethnic, or gender based insults, or any other personal attacks.

5. Pictures may be attached to posts and signatures if they are not sexually explicit or offensive. Picture sample attachments in posts must not include copyright infringement.

6. Remember to post in the correct forum. Take your time to look at other threads and see where your post will go. If your post is placed in the wrong forum it will be moved by a moderator. There are specific Gnutella Client sections for LimeWire, Phex, FrostWire, BearShare, Gnucleus, Morpheus, and many more. Please choose the correct section for your problem.

7. If you see a post in the wrong forum or in violation of the House Rules, please contact a moderator via Private Message or the "Report this post to a moderator" link at the bottom of every post. Please do not respond directly to the member - a moderator will do what is required.

8. Any impersonation of a forum member in any mode of communication is strictly prohibited and will result in banning.

9. Multiple copies of the same post will not be tolerated. Post your question, comment, or complaint only once. There is no need to express yourself more than once. Duplicate posts will be deleted with little or no warning. Keep in mind a forum censor may temporarily automatically hold up your post, if you do not see your post, do not post again, it will be dealt with by a moderator within a reasonable time. Authors of multiple copies of same post may be dealt with by moderators within their discrete judgment at the time which may result in warning or infraction points, depending on severity as adjudged by the moderators online.

10. Posts should have descriptive topics. Vague titles such as "Help!", "Why?", and the like may not get enough attention to the contents.

11. Do not divulge anyone's personal information in the forum, not even your own. This includes e-mail addresses, IP addresses, age, house address, and any other distinguishing information. Don´t use eMail addresses in your nick. Reiterating, do not post your email address in posts. This is for your own protection.

12. Signatures may be used as long as they are not offensive or sexually explicit or used for commercial advertising. Commercial weblinks cannot be used under any circumstances and will result in an immediate ban.

13. Dual accounts are not allowed. Cannot explain this more simply. Attempts to set up dual accounts will most likely result in a banning of all forum accounts.

14. Video links may only be posted after you have a tally of two forum posts. Video link posting with less than a 2 post tally are considered as spam. Video link posting with less than a 2 post tally are considered as spam.

15. Failure to show that you have read the forum rules may result in forum rules breach infraction points or warnings awarded against you which may later total up to an automatic temporary or permanent ban. Supplying system details is a prerequisite in most cases, particularly with connection or installation issues.

Violation of any of these rules will bring consequences, determined on a case-by-case basis.


Thank You! Thanks for taking the time to read these forum guidelines. We hope your visit is helpful and mutually beneficial to the entire community.

Photoshop has some 'reasonable' learning files in its own program program folder. Some are advanced techniques of using the program. Check the tutorials there.
... oh .. just checked .. the more recent version Photoshop doesn't seem to have such entailed tutorials. They do link from URL page however so that's probably how they do it now I guess.

The Adobe site used to have pages for both tutorials & examples of work. I haven't checked in a long time as to whether they still exist.

Personally I was self taught, but later studied Photoshop at university (was exempted for early part) as a part of a multimedia graphics course. I spent much of my time helping others. lol

Actions you can record yourself. If you have a lot of files that need identical formatting/processing then they are ideal to use either individually as needed or batch process. Recording actions is not hard, just need to know you are doing the right things each time (can always go back & edit the action if needed by adding or removing a particular process.)

Click the Actions palette, then click the small arrow at top right of the palette & a drop down menu will appear. There you can create a new Action & then start to record all the processes you do until finished (then press stop recording), else experiment with the included ones. I think you will find some sites around that offer extra actions to download & use.

Keep in mind how much you wish the action to do itself. Be it just processing or create a new document & process it from scratch. Can go right through to saving the document in a particular format. As mentioned above, you can create sub versions of a particular action of variations are needed.

Actions can save a lot of personal processing time & personal time, particularly if the actions are complex processing that would normally take a long time, concentration & finesse to do yourself.

If you experiment with the sample ones, watch how they work you will get a better idea. Also open the little arrows to see each specific process, this is where they can be customised too. From memory a process can be changed in order or added reasonably easily if editing the action.

Hmm not for drawing per se ... after rechecking myself. But it good for processing ready images such as photos or other. Sorry I got that earlier point wrong. (Although you can set brush size in actions, it will not paint itself.)

Just a quick example below about the initial steps. The actual actions I used were a little rubbishy but just to show a few types of things that can be done. Processing I guess you might say is the main purpose, rather than creation. But then depends on how it's used, such as opening particular files, cut n paste, working with layers, etc.

I might have an actions or actions section of an early photoshop learning CD I had from many years back.

For a start, work with effects layers, never work directly on the image itself. In the Layer menu you can create an adjustment layer & then choose which type of effect you wish to use. Adjustment layers can always be adjusted or deleted as long as the document has not been Flattened as you would do just before printing to save computer memory & time sending to printer. You can add other types of layers too. Using layers allows you to process effects, also duplicate original image layer.

I'll see what I can come up for you as a guide. Sounds like some masking would be appropriate though not necessary.
