Why would you not use photoshop as a graphic design major? That doesnt really make sense to me.

A lot of graphic design work are logos and book layouts, magazines..etc, photoshop is used, just not the way we would use it here to make sigs and stuff.

Thats what I thought because my aunt is a graphic designer and she said she uses photoshop so I was wondering why they didn't teach it in school.

I wish it was like the stuff we did here you know, making sigs and cool designs and what not, unfortunately it's mostly doing ugly shit for other people lol...well so far anyway.

We use photoshop, but just not as much as, and for the reasons I want. We make some really lame shit.

They want us to use illustrator for most of the hard stuff, but I aint havin none of that and cheat my way with photoshop, even the painting assignments. I can paint and draw so much easier with photoshop.

Check out the fruit bowel in my portfolio, that was supposed to be illustrator, but I did it in PS.

That's pretty good that you can do that, I only cheat with photoshop when using pictures, I'm not really good at painting or anything.

i started useing photoshop when i was about 13, just messing around with diff pictures so i learnt all the basics for myself, and then my boi became a graphic designer for a living making some T-shirts, posters, book covers etc etc for diff companys, and then in teh last 3 years of my school i took graphic design for GCSE, but didnt learn much new stuff, i just used what i already knew to get ahead of everybody else and get a good grade. now taht ive left school the only graphic stuff i do is sigs, but my sigs arnt even near the standard of some of the better artists on teh forum

Those are some interesting stories everyone thank you for sharing. I was always curious because the quality on this is great. Out of all the forums and what not mmaforum puts out the best quality graphics by far. Everyone has top notch sigs with so many different flavors and styles it's like walking through a modern graphic art museum everyday.

I just wanted to share my appreciation for your talents it needs to be noticed. Thanks again for your stories everyone it's been a great read. I'll be seeing you around the boards.
