I know the psd format is very flexible with its layering and all, but isn't it kinda bad to push a closed standard? Or is .psd not patented by Adobe?<br><br>

PSD is proprietary. = Photoshop document.<br>Graphic designers are always full of themselves.<br>They do not realise that anyone can be a graphic designer.. It is a matter of taste and a developed artistic expression combined with a knowledge of the engineering this last only comes with experience... Not something a uni degree in Graphic Design alone, can give. Talent is still talent.

.eps is a proprietary format (Adobe's postscript) and .tif belongs to some other group. They're just file formats like any other and can hardly be considered closed considering Photoshop is the God almighty of image editing.<br><br> What?<br>Visit My Web Site!

The problem Ma Cherie, is that there is a tendency to put overconfidence before learned intelligence. Thus to say; things which belittle the actual intellectual ability of the overconfident arse who would rather insult than step down to a level of comprehensible commuication, with his/her peers.<br><br>The fact remains. Anyone can become a Graphic Designer. Otherwise there would be none.<br>Good Graphic Designers need to be trained. Talent does need to be nurtured.<br>Manners are an indivisible part of intellect. There is no way that a well trained and capable person should ever treat another as if they are an idiot.<br>The ability to comprehend what the customer is on about should also be a part of the training. The ability to communicate the best course of action to any customer is a prerequisite to success in your chosen trade.<br>The reason that Graphic Designers were chosen to be brought to attention was simply the fact that the most consistent offenders .. are . or call themselves Graphic Designers. This is not my fault. I did not give them the right to insult the trade practices of other Graphic Designers.<br><br>The fact that I can call them to accountability does not and should not insult anyone with any modicum of intelligence.<br><br><br><br>and.. please do not be offended that I chose your post to answer with this comment.. for it is really intended for others ears as well as yours.<br><br>The fact that I chose you to answer was more related to the fact that rife blame-laying has been being spread across the forum by those whom are incapable of dealing with an intellect of the equal to that which they claim to have.<br><br>The last thing I or anybody would want is to have the level of communication lowered to the point of branch stacking everyone into the idiot box.<br><br>I would prefer that the TGD's etc in this place(once again chosen because the same people always pick on him too) could actually have some attempt made to be treated as an equal and an attempt made to comprehend and incur comprehensive posts to and from. <br>Each of us does have something to say. <br>Often of great importance to the debate at hand.<br>All fun aside, I would like to see more attempts at communication than belittlement. <br><br>Everyone with intelligent observation will observe the people that I have drawn to account for their actions. <br><br>If anyone goes back through their posts they will see, to their dismay that these people by their behaviour, continually bring the trade of Graphic Designer into disrepute.<br><br>If those whom believe they are good at their trade, cannot see what I am saying then they are not destined to be good at anything.<br><br>Trör Ironbrow<br><br>[color:blue]The butterfly counts not months but moments, and has time enough</font color=blue><br>

Being full of yourself is what makes you capable of your art.. It is your talent and if it has been nurtured properly, you will be able to feel your talent surging through your veins. It is a prerequisite for being a talented designer... or whatever you are/want to be.<br>There is nothing wrong with this in any way shape or form and I did not ever say there was.<br>All I said was that people who give themselves a title.. are full of themselves. <br>There is also nothing wrong with me stating the truth.<br>No sugar coating was implied nor added. No insult was implied either for that matter.<br>For one to take offence, does indeed mean that one has not applied their own intellect to the communication problem at hand..<br>Read into what I say, what you may but please do not accuse me of thinking like you.

Re: Graphic designers & print folks - 01/29/04 08:13 AM

I was up to Calculus in high school, but I didn't take the course in my senior year because I thought the teacher teaching it was too stupid (he had one of the students in the class actually teach most of the lessons in the Advanced Trigonometry class). When I went to college and only had to take Math for General Education for a graphic design degree, it was the easiest class ever —I sat in the back of the classroom and worked on my design compositions. <br><br>I had said in HS that math was the only vocation where there's a set of rules that never get broken—and that was boring to me. If only I had been exposed to theoretical math and chaos theories earlier, I might have become a scientist. Knowing what I know today, I almost wish I had gotten into Astrophysics. I took an upper-division Astrophysics course and it was one of the easiest 'A's I earned in college—yet there were physic majors struggling with it. I couldn't figure out why when it was so fascinating. I was so giddy and geeky about the subject that I used to hang out after class just so I could walk the professor back to his office and talk more about the day's lecture.<br><br>

Re: Graphic designers & print folks - 01/29/04 06:58 PM

Well, I got into math for exactly the reason that got you out of it--I mean, I was looking for certainty, and math seemed to offer precisely what I wanted. Then I took a course on number theory in college (my first college course was integral calculus, which I'd had in high school, and so I never went to the class--in fact, on the night of the midterm, I was . . . well, I sorta wasn't, if you know what I mean . . . and the only reason I found out there was an exam was that another kid on my floor was taking the same class. I aced the test, which gives some idea of how easy I found it). Number theory was taught by a gentleman who had first gone to divinity school, had an MDiv, in fact, and then had shifted to math. He was enthralling. But the course challenged every assumption I'd made about math. In fact, the first day of class we were told very gently that we had to forget everything we knew about the way numbers functioned because the first half of the term would be dedicated to defining a series of number systems that might or might not duplicate the "actual" number systems. So we invented whole numbers and the rules that make whole numbers work. And we invented integers and the rules that make integers work, and so on. One result of that part of the class was a deep sense that the certainty of math was a result of the invention of number systems--with emphasis on invention. We came up with alternative systems, with very different rules, which were as consistent as the "actual" number system. And then, of course, we came to the major catch of any consistent system: you can't prove that it's "true." Another way of putting it is that the statement "system A is true" (a self-reflective statement) adds a level of complexity that isn't contained within the consistency of the system itself. You have to go outside of the system to demonstrate its "truth." Well, I said to myself, so much for certainty <br><br>edit: A really fabulous book that explains the problem, among other equally fascinating issues, is Jacob Bronowski's Origins of Knowledge and Imagination.
