Good day guys, I'm looking to build a machine for a customer who wants a machine for Photoshop Premier and video editing, perhaps with Sony Vegas. I was looking at the NVIDIA Quadro K2000 2GB, would you all recommend such or just go with a mid-range powerful consumer grade GPU? Thanks in advance.
I've tried several sites and every time I click on a link to, what I'm thinking is going to download the font, I get some random ad.

Here's an example:

All I want to do is get my hands on that font. Any suggestions? And like I said, every site looks like it can deliver, but then you start clicking on "download" and you wind up with an ad that has nothing to do with the font.

Any suggestions
adobe premier files saved as project (.prproj) , all files showing media player icon and not opening
if it opens after opening premier , it works
why it is not opening directly , even with open with selecting adobe premier.exe , is still not opening
I took these three images and created the layers and display them in the images below. For some reason I scaled them and they seem to be synchronized together. When I select one layer all of the layers resize together on the canvas. I am a bit confused as to how this happened. In a related question yesterday, I picked an image that shows three simpler images together displaying virtually what I wanted. I was not looking to place them in that image just figure out how to make them more uniformly sized to fit better on a web page that will look similar. The answer given yesterday was fantastic.

So my question:
How do I break out the three images now into separate files like a thumbnail and save them individually so that I can place them on my web page? Thank you very much for your expertise.
In DW2017 there is Preferences > Interface

I was able to tweak the color of the code, but I can't seem to find how to change the background color.
There is "Dark" which is black, and there is "Light" which is white and there doesn't seem to be a way to use grey for example.
Any ideas ?
I have three images I want to set up as proof of concept for a webpage.
The first 3 images are what I have to work with
CustomerSupport image 527x800  Sales Handshake 800x533  ShowMeDemo 400x386
this last image is what I want it to look like.

This is what I am trying to do balance the 3 images. I have both Gimp and Adobe.
This image is what I am trying to get to. A more uniform balanced between all three images.
I recently upgraded to DW 2017. Unfortunately the color of the code makes it impossible for me to distinguish my code correctly.
The colors used in CS6 or even 2015 were just fine.

How can I reset the color of the code to that color scheme (white background) etc. ?
I have worked as a full-time translator since 2009 and am now contemplating to purchase a Mac and DTP software like Adobe InDesign, PhotoShop, Illustrator and Quark so I can widen my offering of services to include DTP as well. This is normally something the translation agencies handle themselves, but perhaps I could easier find direct customers by offering them DTP services.

As I translate in a language direction which is highly demanded, I receive more job offers than I can accept. How is the situation when it comes to DTP?

1. Can I do DTP for other languages (at least languages I am somewhat familiar with, like Chinese, Russian and French)?

2. Which areas could I quite easily get a good start in within sub-areas of DTP? For example, DTP that is related to translation would be one sub-area. What other sub-areas are there?

3. Which  industries require DTP from freelancers the most (more than the translation industry)?

4. How do I handle files if I work with DTP software on a Mac and my customers send me Windows DTP files?

5. How long would it take me to get started with DTP with no previous knowledge of it by just having the necessary hardware and software?

6. How good is the profit margin (how much competition is there)?

7. If I purchase the software and a Mac, can I, to start with at least, let someone else use this Mac with the installed DTP software and work remotely with DTP tasks? In other words, I give this other person full access to my Mac …
Hi Experts,

In inDesign by holding command and clicking I can select the element behind the other. In illustrator I have to lock the top item to select the one below. It works but is time consuming and can become confusing. Anyone know a short cut?

I'm on a Mac running CS6. Thanks in advance.

Looking to create a logo for a shave ice business. I've been unsuccessful with Logo designers as they never seem to deliver what I want. So, I thought I'd take the time to try to create it myself with Photoshop. I am no logo designer, so I'll do my best. My business name will Be Hula-Tang. I'd like to see how Hula-Tang will appear using one of the Hawaiian font/typography below. Do anyone know how can I create the fonts below or download them into Adobe Photoshop CC?

I've got my design, but I want to run my layout past someone who knows what they're doing when it comes to print.

Below is a screenshot of my Photoshop work environment. I'm using the specs as outlined at

Bottom line: It's a 6" X 9" book with a spine that's .76" wide. Add to that a .125 bleed and there you have it.

Everything is pretty intuitive and I think I've nailed it. But when you look at the aforementioned webpage, they use the word "trim" and in one of the illustrations they've got a zone they refer to as "Safe."

Can you look at what I've done and tell me whether or not my design - specifically my bleed and trim size - is accurate? I just hate the thought of having invested so much time into this for me to overlook something and wind up with a design that's been truncated because I wasn't paying attention.


I have a number of pngs of detailed photos such as the one attached with transparent backgrounds. I need to outline each one with a line around the perimeter of the photo that is a PATH. I can add a stroke effect to the PNG in Photoshop that looks correct, but because it is an effect it does not seem that I can convert that stroke to a path (I need the path for laser cutting). I have available to me and a working knowledge of Photoshop, Illustrator, and Inkscape. The best solution would be in Inkscape if feasible since I hope to share the process with others who may not have access to Adobe software, but any (hopefully relatively straightforward) solution would do at this point.

I'm driving myself a bit nuts trying to do something that I think should be simple. Help! Please. Thanks so so much.

I've probably titled this thread incorrectly... however i'll try and explain what i am looking for.

I built a Wordpress theme a few years ago that has several different 'template' components added to it, such as:

- gallery
- text boxes
- testimonials
- video boxes
... etc (+30 other UI components)

I offer this theme to my lower tier clients... those that have a very small budget, and just need a quick website presence up and running.

I would like to be able to sit with a client, and present all of the UI components in some form of 'wireframed' or 'cartoonised' view and NOT the real life view of each component, so that i can build the layout of the site with the client there and then.

I know i could just build it using the real life view of each UI component, however clients start obsessing over the aesthetics, colors and fonts... which i rather propose via a completed design at the end.

I have thought about printing each of the UI components on a piece of card, but I don't always get a chance to sit with my clients face to face... so instead I have designed to built a draggable UI website with all of the wireframed UI components available to move around etc.

But... i still need some tool to create all of these UI Wireframe components. Can anyone recommend a tool for creating UI Wireframe Kits?

I was also looking at building a page with all of the Ui components and then using some magical photoshop style to 'cartoonise' the UI.

Any other …

How can I take a clip in my Adobe Premier timeline and take it from very blurry and gradually come into focus?
Adobe Premier is stating that I need to update my drivers for my NVIDIA Card because of GPU accelerated rendering issues.

My NVIDIA card says it IS up to date
In my FireMonkey project, I have a TImage on a form, with a black-and-white bitmap. It's invisible, I only use it to copy its fragments for showing them in other images. The problem is to make the white color always and completely transparent. Of course, I could use TColorKeyAlphaEffect - however, it changes not the bitmap but the way it's drawn, so the copied fragments are still completely opaque. I tried to use MakeScreenshot method to save the result of TColorKeyAlphaEffect in the original bitmap, but it doesn't seem to work (though it works with other effects, like TBlurEffect). It looks like MakeScreenshot ignores the alpha channel. Any advice?

Another possible approach could be to provide the transparency at the design time. But how can I add an alpha channel to a BW 1-bit bitmap file? Is there a way to do it, for example, in Photoshop? I tried but it looks like alpha channels in Photoshop and in FireMonkey are two different things, just named the same.
Hi! So I have created an image in Photoshop that I would like to use as my email signature. However I would like to be able to have separate elements of the image clickable links so that the recipients can go access the business' social networks and websites. Is there any way that this can be done? I'm not familiar with coding so any help that can be given is greatly appreciated!

This is about choosing a graphics card for a new Dell Precision Workstation 5810 computer.

The primary unique use for the system that needs higher performance is image editing. My current six year old Dell T7500 using  Xeon E5530 2.4GHz processors (four cores) and Intel 530 series SATA SSDs gives very slow response with software such as Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop and Affinity Photo. I also do some light video editing although much less than still images.

The PC will run Windows 10 64-bit Pro. It will probably have:
* Xeon E5-1660 v4 (8 cores, 3.2GHz, 3.8GHz Turbo, 2400MHz)
* 64GB RAM
* m.2 PCIe drives: 512GB system, 512GB or 1TB data
* SATA HDD for infrequently-accessed data

I will only need one display - presently a 30" Dell monitor.

Dell offers these single-display graphics cards:

NVIDIA® Quadro® M2000 4GB (4 DP) (1 DP to SL-DVI adapter) [default]

AMD FirePro™ W7100 8GB (4 DP) (3 DP to SL-DVI adapters) [add $265.66]
AMD FirePro™ W8100, 8GB (4 DP) (3 DP to SL-DVI adapters) [add $594.22]

NVIDIA® Quadro® M4000 8GB (4 DP) (1 DP to SL-DVI adapter) [add $314.59]
NVIDIA® Quadro® M5000 8GB (4 DP) (1 DP to SL-DVI adapter) [add $1,213.40]
NVIDIA Quadro M6000 24GB (4 DP, DL-DVI-D) (2 DP to SL-DVI adapter) [add $3,640.20]
NVIDIA® Quadro® K6000 12GB (2 DP, 2 DL-DVI-I) (2 DP to SL-DVI adapter) [add $3,686.14]

While I do not want to spend more than necessary I do want a high …

I'm constantly reviewing various web and app designs from my team.

We use a very traditional approach, which involves printing the designs, and then marking the changes with pen:

- crossing out sections we don't need
- adding notes about UI
- drawing on top of them

Can anyone recommend software that will allow a team to collaborate on a screenshot.

- turn markup on and off
- delete various markup
- add new markup and note
- add comments

Thank you in advance for your help.

I'm getting a logo done by someone through fiverr. I'm not a graphic designer, though I've done some simple editing with the GIMP. My understanding is that a vector file format is a requirement if I want to be able to edit or resize the logo image without losing quality, and that a .psd file can provide that as well as allowing editing of text components of the logo.

I've been given a .psd file, but it appears to just have a single layer in it that loses quality if I increase the size. Also, to be able to change the text in the logo, I was expecting each type (ie combination of font/size/colour) of text to have its own layer, and be editable as text.

For quality graphic design work, is there a standard way logos would be delivered in vector format to allow editing of them?

Should components of the logo be editable as text like I describe above?

Can anyone share an example .psd file that demonstrates what I describe above?

I'm happy to share a copy of my logo files with experts by private message, but I'd rather not share it in the body of the question. Thanks!
Google presented me with a site - - that charges.  I don't mind paying if it's a reputable company.  I would prefer a support plan with phone support from Adobe.

Does Adobe offer phone support, paid or otherwise, for Lightroom?
If not, is there a service that experts recommend?
