    Why would you create a vector image of a raster logo then save that vector as a raster?
    Why do I have the feeling you are creating the leaflet layout in Photoshop?

    If you need the logo...

    Why we don't download PDFs
    PrintDriver
    Many times posters here on GDF will link to .pdf files for people to download for critique.
    Or job searchers will send out emails with portfolio PDF attachments expecting those on the other end...

    That's one of the problems, PrintDriver. I can't prevent that.

    I've been thinking all along that a quantity discount is appropriate, but I'm not sure how much. That's what I hate about...

  • Hello! It's a pleasure to join

    I'm a full time Graphic Design student (my 50th birthday present to me) and it is a dream come true.

    I love it all and I'm looking forward to learning by listening, and asking when I need to. I'm taking Photoshop and InDesign along with Photography, Design 1 and Drawing. My biggest challenge right now is my grey value scale(11) for Design 1 (I do love the guache my instructor required) My background is working with fabric, so I understand color. I'm going for perfect increments because training my eye to see it will be invaluable. I'm just not there yet...I'm enjoying the process...InDesign is online and that's a bit tricky. The program is brand new to me, and I know I'm spending hours on things that should be easier...Our book is Revealed, I use the Help a lot but I'd love a couple of reference library referrals to add to my stash. Thanks, and I'll try to be less verbose and more concise...

    I'm just really glad to be here!

    Welcome to the forum svd, and congratulations on being able to pursue your dream.

    You'll find a lot of invaluable advice on here. Check the Adobe products section often, use the forum search for InDesign, and definitely check out this link: InDesign Secrets.

    If you have iTunes, there are also some good podcasts on InDesign that you can check out, and the Adobe InDesign forum is also a good place to go for resources.

    Good luck, and once again, welcome!
