  1. If I'm reading this correctly (?) an 8 up on a sheet indicates the cards will be printed on a domestic printer. Better quality, much cheaper and on the appropriate card weight would be to use Vistaprint—upload the singular design as a CMYK pdf and let Vista take care of the rest. I can't give you their link as they're global and my link is for Australia only so Google them... (They have a business card template you can download). Cheers
  2. You're not being argumentative, just unaware of the complete situation. Unfortunately their 3rd party contractors don't have access to a shared server. They (including myself) upload to Dropbox and that, as far as I'm aware, is the cloud
  3. The joy on your nephew's face in the last image ... Classic! The pitch looks like it could do with mowing. Keeping the grass long, is that on purpose for junior players in CA and/or LA?
  4. ... and This is a good start for idea generation. Mind mapping and pin boarding will develop your ideas further (as well as sketching out ideas on paper). Here's what came up in a Google image search for tea party with mad hatter logo There should be something in there to inspire that'll expand your ideas to the next level. The table and chairs, to me, are symbolic for communication ... Google search along those lines for ideas as well. In all honesty the above images, used as a logo, just won't cut it. Good (and clever) logos are uncomplicated. They have to be as they're reproduced at different sizes, colour removed + inverted ... and so on. I'll be quite interested to see what you finally come up with.
  5. Also check out Bruce Williams DT videos. He's clear, straight to the point with zero fluffing. The tuts are for those who're newbies to the app. Recommended! This is a better link as it links to the playlist in order of creation. Bruce uploads a new tut each Monday afternoon.
  6. They're protected by law. Here's the best I can do I should say I'll still be using the Affinity suite on my laptop
  7. Thanks for the avatar complement. It's a Quokka found only on an island off the west coast of Australia (not far from Perth). Check this out
  8. I'm currently using Windows 10 on a laptop (ASUS Rog) however I'm looking at building a desktop system in the next couple of months just for photographic editing—actually my son will build it! it'll be 100% Linux—I've used Linux on and off since the early noughties (starting with Mandrake). The image apps I'll be using, and currently on my laptop, are Darktable, LightZone and Gimp ... all very capable pro level apps. Darktable by itself is an outstanding non destructive module based editor with (history retaining) sidecar files that are only 2KB in size. IMHO I really can't see the issue re the lack of capable image editors for Linux. Oh, to keep everything in perspective here's a pic of my main 'image app' back in the day when I was printing my own and other pro photog's images ... just saying that's all
  9. Darktable These YouTube Tuts point to/answer much of what you require.
  10. For sure! However the reason I mentioned my wife works as an instructional designer is because she works in a team (for the Queensland government). There's several teams (or more) interlinked who work in different areas of a building as well as in buildings in various locations around the city and state. They have to use the cloud. They also use stock images and because money is everything in business (including government) efficient use of time and resources. While we're waiting for a Serif DAM things are ramping up elsewhere for pro creatives who work in teams/organisations etc.
  11. And unfortunately as we wait (for everything!) Adobe moves on ... My wife (who works as an instructional designer) emailed me this link Sensei
  12. ... and become food for the jackals I'm not religious either. I am quite puzzled though why religion is so violent—in particular the three Abrahamic religions
  13. Interesting diverse body of work on Flicka Ian—have bookmarked it and will check in from time to time. ... Wasted effort on my part (laughter). Your Flicka images quite clearly reveal your working knowledge of gestalt, pareidolia and all those other ...
  14. All images should have a hero (ie key element). The hero is then supported by other visual elements and that collectively determines the makeup of a composition. The hero though doesn't have to be visual—you're a truckie with presumably many years experience so you'd have an emotional attachment to trucks. Certainly that's the impression I got from what you've written in your original post. So, if emotion is the hero then you have the key and with that you should be able to obtain the result you're after. When the hero has been established (realistically the reason for taking a photo in the first place) then the choice of lens, the shooting angle, height, direction, placement etc, the (type of) light, time of day and so on—that is, the composition—all fall into place
  15. 100% agree with firstdefence including the little green alien man... Nice image: keep going!
  16. I'm currently unable to view any of the .png images on this post with Chrome (my default), Opera and MS Edge. The .png's were viewable when I last visited. Is anyone else having having this issue?
  17. Then the title would have to change and the meaning into something else. What I'd like to see is the background colour desaturated further (rear buildings, sky and grass) and made more gritty. It would look more post war like then (or at least an illusion of). Nice concept!
  18. Love the dog illustration! Remarkably similar to me from time to time ... which reminds me I have a wedding to go to this weekend
  19. Very interesting and informative post! I'm quite a fan of street art/graffiti. Between 2010 (Oct) and 2013 (Dec) I visited this building a number of times to photograph the art—more accurately the adjoining building at the rear—under building car park walls, hallways, staircase etc. There's 12 of the images on my website—images 2 and 3 is the same back wall but shot two years apart. The 3rd to last and last images are works by Anthony Lister Unfortunately the last time I was there (Dec 2013) I was told the walls were to be painted over—the building owner apparently loved the art however the real estate agent was having issues obtaining tenants (commercial building) ... the art is longer there. I'm quite keen now to revisit what I shot—there's dozens more I can work up. The images on my web were edited when APh was probably just a rumour at Serif's staff local. This time around, as image editor, APh will be ideal
  20. Just had a look at your work on Behance ... What can I say! Very clever ideas, well executed. You certainly know what you're doing and where you're going!
  21. Love the gritty urban feel! In particular the dumpster/graffiti image—superb edgy balance of colour, contrast and form.
  22. Very clever! ...all of them—the second one though...
