Your Questions About Free High Resolution Photoshop

Nancy asks…

Good program for designing logos?

I’m trying to make a very complex logo i came up with but it is extremely difficult to just draw out in photoshop free hand.

So does anyone know an illustrative program where i can plot points on a graph (ultra high resolution) and connect the dots with straight lines?

All i really need is to make the outline in that way.
Then i’d like to save it as a JPEG and finish the coloring and effects in photoshop.

Timo answers:

The industry standard is now Adobe Illustrator this works in vector format and you can position points precisely (within 1/1000th of a millimetre). However you can, if pushed, do this in Photoshop by using smart vector layers, the transform menu option, the information panel and the pen tool. Remember to save the original as a psd file so you can amend it if need be.

The thing with (successful) logos is that they are very rarely “very complex” because they have to work at different scales and on different substrates. I can recommend this book for the basics of logo design and creation –

Jenny asks…

how do I…?

how do I make a picture big AND WITH high resolution using the GIMPSHOP (its like photoshop)?

NOTE: I am a total beginner at this… I’ve looked at the help sites and anything I could fint but I havn’t found anything with a SIMPLE explination on how to go about doing this. If you cant help me, then please provide me with a computer help site where I can talk to a proffecional for free AND without signing up or registering for anything.

thank you.
*sigh* it might help if you knew what picture it was… go to this link:

Timo answers:

Now, I COULD be wrong about this, but as I understood it back in school, you cannot change a resolution to be higher than it was originally, when the photo was taken. Sure, you can make the picture bigger, but you will lose quality in it.

Now, taking a large picture and making it smaller, you will retain the resolution.

As I said, I could be wrong,so I hope you get more answers and I can compare 🙂

I would go with the dell. It has a better video card.

Robert asks…

What is the better option for motion graphics/film editing: 1 x 30″ Display or 2 x 24″ Displays?

Soon enough, I’ll be making the decision on what to purchase in order to work on with my new Mac Pro. My options are:

• One 30″ Display
• Two 24″ Displays

I’ve heard many good things about having dual-screen setups. It allows for expanded workflow, as well as being able to choose which windows appear on what monitor. Basically, you get extensive widescreen real-estate.

However, I’ve also see 30″ panels being a popular choice among many designers. They are beautiful monitors, and they offer massive resolutions.

So my question is, which option would be better for my line of work? I’m an experienced free-lance designer, but I’ve only ever worked on a single 23″ display, and I know that my new workspace needs to have more, especially with modern standards.

I work primarily with:

• Adobe Premiere (Win)
• Adobe After Effects (OSX)
• Final Cut Studio 2 (OSX)
• Sony Vegas (Win)

• Adobe Photoshop (OSX)
• Adobe Illustrator (OSX)

Keep in mind that I’ll be working with higher resolution film and motion graphics, along with some minor 3D work as well.


Timo answers:

Go with dual monitors. You’ll never look back. I have a pair of nice 22’s at home and at work, and it really opens up space for your workflow. Even if you had the single 30″, you’d likely not run two horizontal apps (like AE or Vegas) side-by-side on that monstrosity.

Go for two 24’s, and if you still need higher resolutions, upgrade to 30’s and send me your 24’s, and everyone will be happy!

-Use photoshop cs3 smoothly

– Use MS office and internet with lots of pages open.

I can’t go over $800 but if you find a better pc at this price tell me. It has to include

– update to windows 7
– It has to be built because I can’t built my own ( i am really bad with hardware trust me)

Thanks in advance for your suggestions.
