    I've had this idea for awhile now and thought that I would go ahead and make this thread seeing as recently we have had some new graphics artists join our forum.

    Basic Terminology


    Adding Fonts To Photoshop

    Once you have downloaded a font open it up and if necessary extract the file by clicking extract file. Once you have done that go to C:\WINDOWS\Fonts and then drag the font you just downloaded and or extracted into there. Once you have done that it should now show up in Photoshop.

    Downloading & Adding Brushes To Photoshop

    Where Can I Download Brushes? If you wish to download brushes to photoshop I would suggest on going to www.deviantart.com and search for the specific brush you want. Be it grunge, abstract or vector.

    I Found A Brush I Like, Now What? Once you have found a brush you like click on "download". Once you have downloaded the brush open up photoshop and click on brushes (Top Right). After that click on the small arrow and then scroll down and click on "Load Brushes". Open up the brush you downloaded and click ok.

    Another way of installing brushes:


    Renders

    What is a render: A render is an image many signature artists use in their signature. A render is usually a image that has been previously cut out. By having the image cut out beforehand the artist doesn't have to worry about cutting out the background.

    Where can I find find render?

    Fortunately there are many sites which offer renders for users to save and or download. One of the sites being www.planetrenders.net. Please note that it is suggested you sign up on Planet Renders to view full renders and save them without having to worry about a black background.

    Other sites which offer renders:

    www.clantemplates.com
    www.gamerenders.com (?)
    - More to come..

    What Are C4D's?


    C4D = Cinema 4D

    C4D's are images many signatures artists use in their signature to make it more appealing and or interesting.

    Where Can I Find C4D's? If you are looking to save and or download some C4D images I would suggest on going to www.planetrenders.net or www.deviantart.com. Another option would be to search "C4D Render" on www.google.com


    I will be adding more later..

    Hope this helps..

    Note: If you would like me to add and or fix anything please let me know.

    Will do. I'll probably have this thread added into the Wiichats Graphics Library as well if others find it useful.

    I am thinking of doing a GIMP one, would people like it?

    Since GIMP is less known I think it will be good to show it to a few people:)
