    This would have been really trendy in the late 90's (the new retro era). Next they'll have a glossy orb with a gradient reflection below it....

    Hey everyone! After some helpful feedback from a few days ago, and spending some time talking to the client, I've spent a lot of time cleaning up this logo I'm doing.

    Indeed but it could be of use. Say that you have a 8 decimals file but in a layout you don't need those precise decimals. In that case it is good that you can choose how your excel file is imported.

  • How do I get the look of this photo?

    Am I the only jackass that thinks there is something EXTRA about this photo. Was this look achieved by just the flash and lighting? Or is there some kind of filter or effect to make the colors and face look kind of cartoony, bright(unnatural). If someone has a clue what was done to this photo to give it the look it has, I would greatly appreciate your reply.
    Thanks.

          start with the basic tutorials to learn photoshop, then move on to the more advanced stuff, halfway down on that page is a tutorial for photos. I can honestly tell ya nothing much was done to the image you posted, maybe a slight dodge/burn in some areas, and some highliting, but thats it, and those are all very basic photoshop techniques. hope that helps

            It just looks like it was the photography that makes the picture look the way it does. You can achieve that look through lighting techniques and quality of equipment. I'm not a photographer, so I can't get more detailed than that, unfortunately. I don't see too much 'photoshop' except for possibly some adjustments in brightness, saturation, etc.

              yeah, that look was done in a photo studio with a lot of soft lighting.
              you can recreate that effect in photoshop by using the airbrush tool, however that technique isn't for beginners.

                Either all that or hire a really good portrait illustrator/painter.
                The jpg is too low res to tell if it is a soft photo or a really good airbrush painting.

                Is that a CD cover? Check who did the cover art and run a web search on the name. Maybe that'll give you a clue.
