    From reading Samuel's first post, I'm gathering that he already has the basic, vector version. I think he's just asking how to create a "gel" version for those special-purpose occasions when...

    Assuming that you want a laptop, any of the refurbished Macs on this page would work fine, and for less than $2,000: http://store.apple.com/us/browse/hom...macbook_pro/15

    The art board size for an image as large as you mentioned isn't typically built at the size that it will output. Instead, it's usually built at a fraction of it's actual output size, like maybe only a...

    It can handle if I put 72 dpi when I create the photoshop document.
    The question is
    How would you set up the photoshop document if you had to create a billboard design 7m by 3m in photoshop...

  • Best LCDs for color critical work?

    Hi.

    I am a graphic designer, working on a Mac, that is trying to figure out what LCD monitor to replace my dying CRT with. I have done a lot of research, but would love to get some opinions from other users.

    I am not a gamer. This is strictly for graphic design and professional retouching.

    I have looked at the Apple 23", but heard differing opinions. Although Apple says it is "award winning" when it comes to the color, most say it is absolutely NOT the monitor to buy for color critical work. I also can't get past the fact that the screen looks dirty - like it needs to be dusted. i know it's matte, but there are other matte screens that do not look like this.

    I have also read about NEC's new 26", looks great - pricey. but most buyers seem to have a problem with it being noisy. strange. also wondering if the color gamut it boasts matters/can be reproduced?

    Then there's Eizo, but i'm wondering if the less expensive ones are better than anything else.

    Samsung?? Westinghouse??

    And lastly, if i am running the Dual 2.7 G5, will I need to upgrade the graphics card in order to use anything but the Apple?

    Any thoughts from experienced users would be much appreciated!

    THANK YOU.

      I've got the 30" apple and we've also got a 20" and 23" here at the office. Color is great, very accurate. i really don't know what you mean by dusty looking. They come color corrected out of the box too.

      Dells are pretty good monitors as well...
