On the other hand, couldn’t figure out why #Acrobat no longer persistently showed document size in the bottom left corner even with the preference enabled. Turns out Adobe made a change to improve layering, just with the Mac version, and the persistent size indicator was a casualty. You can see it by hovering the mouse in that region but ONLY IF THE SETTING TO ALWAYS SHOW IT IS TURNED OFF!!!!
Since the Photoshop I bought and installed in 2005 stopped working because I acquired a new monitor because the one I'd been using for about that long finally gave up the ghost, and apparently the server it wants to connect to reregister itself no longer exists, I thought I'd ask what people use for photo/image editing these days. I'm not fond of subscription models for software so that rules out the latest versions of Adobe CS.

Wacom One Experiment. Got more spare time than I thought so I wrapped it up.
So the wacom one gen1 was perfectly fine, I had very little to complain about, at around 200 bucks, it's great.
The initial activation, and the gamut range that made it hard to work on the hair since the values are so close together, are things that you can improve with higher end tablets, but you could use this for work for years and be fine.
Fan art for the movie "Coco"! :blobcataww: :blobcataww:
I enjoyed the movie "Coco" very much! It will definitely occupy a special place in my heart. :blobcatkissheart: :blobcathearthug: :blobcathearthug:
I hope you all enjoyed it as much as I did! I love you all very much! :gwolf_confetti: :gwolf_confetti: :gwolf_confetti:
Miguel is adorable! :blobcatfunny:
This was drawn in Adobe Photoshop!
Still a WIP, but will be done soon. :blobcatfunny: :blobcatfunny: :blobcatshy: :blobcatshy: :blobcatshy: :blobcatshy:
XPeriment. I gave the XP pen artist a proper go and made something on it. The screen is too small and the dpi could be better, it did give me eye fatigue after an hour. The pen is fine for linework and opacity. Not so great for thickness control, giving an ugly taper as soon as you lift up the pen from the surface.
But it is perfectly usable if that's all you can afford it won't stop you from making great art.
I'm really not liking this stupid future we're building. I just tried to use #Photoshop #AI to remove the obnoxious warning labels from a picture of a car seat holding a fully clothed baby and was denied because it violated Adobe's rules. I'll have to do this manually now, but not before I let #Adobe know how much they're contributing to the stupid future.
From an other place:

The forgotten zones, the buried ancient sites.
She was long before she was here, now.
Upon this mark, eye unite the worlds.
#Adobe #creativecloud #photoshop are to start charging “credits” for using their AI (generative fill) even for paid subscribers like me. Since it is extremely limited compared to Stable Diffusion et al, I won’t be using it and I’ll most likely uninstall it (“firefly”) https://helpx.adobe.com/uk/firefly/using/generative-credits-faq.html
Fun change(s) of perspective:
Some greatest hits from "The Internet Photoshop Troll".
Okay. Does anyone know #photoshop or #gimp or anything? I'm not asking for anyone to do it, honestly I'd rather do it myself and learn a little, but wondering how possible/easy it would be to change the color of something in the below image. Screengrab from #StarTrekDiscovery opening credits. I love it but have always kind of hated that it's red in this opening but blue in the show. The parchment-like background is fine but the red of the deflector dish/lights/trails is what I want to change
No price change to the Adobe Photography plans. 😮💨
Subscribers get "a set number" (?) of credits for generative AI features: "You can access generative AI tools like Generative Fill and a set number of Generative Credits within Photoshop with either a membership or a free trial." 🤔
Not sure how that'll work out but I don't expect to use it much, anyway. (Generative Expand sounds most interesting, like when I framed a macro too damn tight!😜)
Wait, wait... WHAT??
Jpeg's can have VECTOR MASKS?!
I was just browsing my collection of pictures for reference material and then noticed one of them just *happened* to have a vector path in it. This picture was taken way back in 2007. Why did no one ever tell me this was a thing??
This #unity debacle is yet another instance of people getting bitten because they were willfully ignorant beforehand:
If you rely on a software or service that is under the full legal control of someone else, then you are screwed if they decide to change whatever about the license-terms.
The only thing that reliably prevents this kind of stuff is the use of free software (free as in free speech, not even necessarily as in free beer). Now sometimes there may truly be no alternative, but most of the time there very much is:
If you make your bed with #photoshop instead of #gimp or #krita, with M$ Office instead of #libreoffice, with #matlab instead of #octave, with #magma instead of #sage, with #Windows instead of #Linux, … You kinda have only yourself to blame when you get screwed.
Richard #Stallman put out the warnings about all these things AGES ago and you had YEARS to listen. But for some reason you found morons like Steve Jobs and Elon Musk so much more interesting.

What kind of hardware are you using for actual drawing? I'm not talking about apps (like #Photoshop, #AffinityPhoto etc.) but like are you using a #Wacom tablet, an #iPad or what?
Lots of seem to praise Wacoms, others say iPads are great for it but if I prefer to use a Windows PC (although I also have a Macbook), then it's a cumbersome affair most likely (there are 3rd party apps for mirroring but they all seem to have monthly/annual fees. Yuck. No thanks.)

Things I learnt today:
1. If I decide to "take 5" at my computer after doing some strenuous garden work, with the intention of grabbing a shower & making myself presentable after those 5 minutes, I should not
a) open Mastodon
b) open PhotoShop
2. If you put a human mouth on a bee while it's poking at pollen it looks a little like it has a hipster goatee beard.
Anyhow, I really need a shower.
One-day personal #b3d project. I started with the #trimsheet with no actual plan for the corridor. I modeled the corridor using with from the trim sheet. Also made a really simple decal sheet. Pictures from Blender's viewport with some saturation and level adjustments in #Photoshop. Everything baked in #blender3d

I still see people saying "If you're using something for free then you're not the customer, you're the product" (or some variation on that), and at this point I feel as though that's not merely untrue, but usually backwards. Pay for PhotoShop and Adobe will exploit your work for "content analysis." Use Krita for free and it won't collect any data whatsoever.

I'm starting to look around for a Mac laptop to replace my PC, but...
I need one with a video card that can handle #photoshop
Does anyone who uses photoshop have any recommendations for what model I should be hunting (used model, BTW)?
Seems Adobe Stock is a bit lackluster at monitoring uploads to their own services. Artists have found their names used as search terms for hundreds of images generated using their names as prompts that have been uploaded for sale at $80 an image.
Literally other people selling artwork in someone else's style they co-opted to make a buck.
Adobe's neglect in favor of profit is dismissive at best, predatorial at worst. Bad either way.
I've used #Adobe products, especially Photoshop (I started with v2 in 1992) daily for over 30 years. For the past two weeks, however, I have exclusively used competing software and, so far, I've not encountered any issue that required me to return to the safety blanket of #Photoshop, Illustrator or In-Design. In fact, even for someone like me, who is a dyed-in-the-wool Photoshop user, I'm already finding improvements and more intuitive functions.
Me: Hey, maybe if I make something from the other photos of this flower, keeping the alien theme going, it will all make a bit more sense.
[makes follow-up image]
Me: Nope. This is explaining NOTHING.
I took a few macro photos of this purple and cream flower. None of the photos were quite right, but they all made me think of alien landscapes. They were very other-worldly.
Then one of them turned into this.
I think it's friendly.
Oh #Adobe. Fuck you.
I've been using #Photoshop on this 10 yr old laptop quite happily. For TEN years. Yeah, its not *fast* at somethings, but for what I need its fine. Oh well, Ill just roll back to the prev- oh no you can't. Thanks Creative Facist Cloud.
Just use Gi- *yeah I know about 'shop alternatives and I use em. *<valid yet stupid work reasons blah blah>
At least you can dismiss this crap and it *seems* to keep working? Just yet another way Adobe makes us grateful for eating shit.
"According to a new report, a debate is raging inside Adobe about the existential threat its AI technology could pose for its own customer base, with examples cited of design teams already downsizing thanks to the effectiveness of Adobe Firefly within Photoshop."
Adobe has streamlined its Photoshop AI tool for generating new imagery that expands the canvas of a photo. The new generative expand feature is built into the crop tool.
It's definitely faster. I had the same mixed results as with the earlier generative fill. Here's an attempt to add a shark to a kayak photo I took.

Use of #photoshop is quite normal in astrophotography. However, there are plenty of fakes. This picture of Milky Way aligned with the temple of Karkak is not only fake. It would be impossible. https://hoaxeye.com/2023/07/15/the-milky-way-aligned-with-the-temple-of-karnak/

Two part question for the artists on here, specifically digital artists.
(I promise I will cool it with these weekly questions for different topics 😅)
1) Did you learn traditional first, if only for a bit to understand the fundamentals?
2) Do you recommend any software-agnostic learning resources, specifically a structured course rather than a bunch of tutorials.
I've tried before so I'm not entirely new - but let's assume that I am.
