photoshop question

Recommended Posts

your best bet might be to use Illustrator if you can... that way you can define a pattern as a fill but...

 

I think you can do the same type thing in photoshop, or maybe you could do it with 'Brushes'... or, another way might be to use masks but...

i know you can fill like that...ive have done it before...but it was one of those things were i was fucking around...and have no idea what i clicked or did to do it...the dots i had were black...but i bet you could simply change the color...or replace the color. you could simply do it by hand also :)

well, on smaller 72dpi images, you can use filter>color halftone. but ive got to make an image...big image, 33"x14", and when i try to do it on a scale that large, the are either gigantic, and so they just cover overy thing, or they're...well, they're just not right.

 

 

smart, you can define patters for a fill in photoshop too, which actually i had never thought of till you just mentioned illustrator, but it would do nothing for gradients, which is very important. any other ideas?

well... the size kinda changes it... so, now I'm guessing that this is for a final PRINTED product?

 

(new solutions and problems)

if that's the case, I would go ahead and fill it how you want but you must use spot colors (maybe called 'user defined') for your gradients...

 

Then when you send it to the printer, go into your seperation set-up, select the spot color and set it to print at anywhere between 12 and 24 DPI (for pretty huge fucking dots)...

Man, for silk screening I would definately look into using Illustrator... it just has an easier to use seperation set-up and it's all about the vector graphics but... yeah...

 

Seperation set-up is what you want...

You're telling me, I used to RULE photoshop, now I can't even scratch my ass with the keyboard while that program is running...

ya know, i just loaded illustrator onto my computer yesterday, assuming i was gonna do it in there. but since i dont know ilustrator for shit, i got frustrated.

infact, i cant even figure out how to make the stupid fucking page that it supplies, to go away. i hate that god damn thing. i cant make it turn landscape either.

 

it's way too hot, i am not having a good day of it.

intangiblefame,

when i used to think about you, i thought of 'shameless self promotion', who i dont like very much. but now i dont think of him. now when i think of you, i think...hey, what day is it? oh yeah, it's intangiblefame appreciation day, kick ass'! then i go and look at nikeskateboarding.com and i check out the new URL shoes, and i think to myself, holy fuck, those are hot. i need a pair like fucking yesterday. and then i think, but dude, you swore that as a matter of principle you would never buy nike's, and then id think....yeah, but im pretty much a fucking sell out these days, so whatever. then i hit on 'find them in a store near you' and im on my way.

 

(you get it here, since i closed my other thread)

in photoshop:

 

- make some dots, highlight them

- edit > define pattern

- make your selection

- edit > fill > pattern

 

thats for 5.5 at least.

 

 

and if your silk screening it make sure you shit is clean and hi res or do it in illustrator.

5.5 is the only version before adobe overloaded it with worthless crap.

 

the only thing 7 is good for is the heal tool and a slightly better compression engine. and i suppose the brush shit if your into that.

 

in any event id never really use the heal tool, and compression is for sissies.
