    I do stuff for close friends - business cards, pamphlets, flyers, menus etc. Like I said, I'm no professional, so I didn't charge them a dime. I'm just doing this for experience.

    Like Kayekay said, it's mostly a matter of playing around with the Layer > Layer style menu settings. Here's one set of instructions I hurriedly followed to produce what's pasted below: http://www...

    @Lucifer, I really appreciate that feedback. Perhaps people like yourself would be the ideal customer/beneficiary of such a service. If you don't mind I ask.. what would you use the tool for/what projects...

    Yeah, you need that "instagram" filter. Both of those are very "noisy." The surfboard blown out. I suppose it's a trendy look. It's a look I sometimes see when noise is used to enlarge...

    I think it's a good tool and I'd use it. I'm not like the regular members, though i.e. I'm not a professional.

    OK So I'm in the process of creating a magazine and I really want a design book specifically focused on how to effectively create a solid magazine design. I've found a few I hope some of you can comment on and maybe add a couple you find useful to learn the basics from.

    Chris -

    I moved away from publication designing quite about 20 years ago - so, I'm not that familiar with books on the topic. The "design that works" series from Rockport is usually pretty good and provides a good overview. I know that Graphis has published a magazine design annual in the past. There are some decent books out there on "page design" and "page layout." Maybe an Amazon or Google search will help you there. You might check out the resources of the Society of Publication Designers. I know they print an annual. Their site may suggest some other sources of information.
