Ok, it’s time for the professional graphic designers out there to cringe, cry and scream to the heavens. One of the elements that I have to do myself, and really most people who work on blogs do, is create graphics.
I would guess photoshop is the defacto standard for this sort of work. The challenge is that I don’t know photoshop. I know paint, because, well, everyone who has ever been on a PC knows paint. I also have an open source tool Iike very much which is like MS Paint on steroids. It’s called Paint.net. I’ve done some fairly professional looking images in these programs. Nothing spectacular, but enough to get my point across.
Tools, Techniques and Teams – Tools, Techniques and Teams posts are designed to be a look behind the veil of this project. The posts are about the tools i’m using(or considering), such as hardware, software, and services. The techniques I’ve discovered to help process my workflow, and the team members i’m relying on to help me bring it all together.
