Ok so i WANT to learn how to do graphics (yes that means avatars, sigs, banners, etc). I would consider myself with no experience as i try'd doing graphics awhile back and i got no where and learned nothing. Well I've always been interested in graphics and want to learn and make my own! I have no idea where to start. I own no programs for graphic design at all. To make this a little more organized i will make a list of questions i have and i will probably have more questions as i go along. #1 - What program should i use? I know Photoshop is the way to go but i sadly got no money Please Register or Log in to view images What should i do? What program should i use? any good free programs that have features similar to photoshop? #2 - Where should i go to learn? I know i am extremely limited to learning graphics at a Multi-Touch fans where its about apple products and sorts. Is there any good and highly recommended site i should go to that is all about graphic designs, making themes, etc that would help me tons? Surprisingly thats all the questions i thought of at the moment. I know i will have plenty more as i go. I just wanted to start here and hopefully i will find a good place to go to get specific advice. Thanks! P.S. Oh yah and also give me any additional advice on where to start, making graphics, anything really Please Register or Log in to view images anything that will make me better. Also, stories of how you got started and learned would probably help me as well.
