    Hello friends,

    I see that there are many designers here! Just wanted to ask,

    1. Do you design via PhotoShop only! or do you use any other software?

    2. How much time will it take to learn designing small things like Forum Avatars, Button etc... ?

    3. Can I learn it online?

    Thank you :biggrin:
    Asad,

    All depends how quickly you as a person can learn.

    Generally the younger you are the quicker you take in new skills, and as we are all different the time depends on the individual.

    I learnt Visual Basic (ok a while back now) in just over 14 days and was coding for a few local companies shortly after, though now it would take me alot longer.

    I can use photoshop and learned my self but im not a natural at it so it could take me a good 40 mins to create a good banner, i find it easier to pay you guys a couple of $ to make one for me and save my time lol

    Actually yes you can be a designer but not that good, you can learn photshop yourself, and every program, but to be a designer you need to be creative, you must have ideas of creation, somethings exclusives, some effects... And I guarentee you will be that good designer!

    You can start by practising some online tutorials so you get to know some effects... Then start designing small works such as banners or avatars.. Then templates!

    lol well as I said you need to practise to make the designs more better, and specially the colors, you need to get colors that fit each other

    I am just using all the colors with Black. Like Black and Blue. Black and Red. Black and Yellow.

    So, the colors are okay. But, the only problem is layout!!!

    Black & white colors do fit every other colors, this is a rule!
    The layout depends on your creation, as I said you need to be creative!
