Why did you create this thread, when you didn't know how to insert an image?

Anyway, you can use the ATTACH button (http://images.macrumors.com/vb/images/editor/attach.gif) to do so or use the INSERT IMAGE button (http://images.macrumors.com/vb/images/editor/insertimage.gif) to embed an image stored online on some image hosting site or your personal webspace.


help please?

FASTER, FASTER, FASTER.

By looking for this: http://images.macrumors.com/vb/images/editor/attach.gif in the first row above the text entry filed you used when creating this thread (why again*) and the subsequent posts?

* I'm seriously curious, why you did create a thread without putting the image in. WHy didn't you ask for help on how to put an image into a post or taken a look at the numerous threads about the same issue or even the FAQ?

What did you use then?

And what is the intent of this image, as the bottom third is really black and sucks up the legs of the musician and the chair?


why did you post them?

To foreshadow the use of rainbow colours? Messy reminded me of that thread and I had to share these abominations.

Anyway, it is an okay use of masks, but the background still doesn't fit a theme and the person seems kinda off in it.

And why did you purchase the Adobe products but didn't use them?

What do you want to achieve?

Ie whats the end point you want to get to, whats the result? Know that and work backwards.

If your intention was to portray a gay rights guitarist then you possibly achieved that.

I think to be fair you should have spent a good while doing tutorials and learning about Photoshop, Graphics in general and the theory/concept of designing.

and *then* bought yourself all that fancy software.

Just going on your ability to not understand how to attach an image to a forum, would have me think you arent really ready to be designing websites!

Just giving you my observations!

Okay, this will be running in circles and pulling everything out of your nose then, I guess?

With intention I mean, what do you intent to display or show with this image and what should it represent and does it conform with the music that artist makes? As of now, the background is too distracting and too coloured compared to the musician with his three/four colours (jeans, shirt, skin, guitar).

Have you taken any classes in graphics and design?


better words than mine

Thanks.

I would have used the past 10 years experience I had and planned out what I wanted to achieve, how i wanted it to look, got a colour palette together, sketched out layout designs, got together content, done some concepts etc etc.

I think you need to spend a little while learning how to use the fancy new programs you have, and possibly how to use computers/speak english as well.

No point asking how we would have done it differently, as we havent got a clue what you want to achieve, frankly i dont think you do either.

why is nobody pointing out the obvious? the "rainbow" background and the black "stage" do not line up on the left. very sloppy in my opinion. the outer glow around the guy looks cheap and way over used.

there doesn't seem to be any obvious point or idea behind anything on this image. sorry if this seems harsh, but that is my observation...

I suggest you give the image back to your friend and tell him to hire someone who knows what they are doing. Seriously, you are putting some people in the precarious positions of embarrassment. Spend more time on tutorials, take some classes, spend time looking at good design. Then, try again in a few years after you gain some experience.

IMO start from scratch and use a proper photographer... It's not usable from a web or print POV.

It's a good start.
The reason this image is not working is because your foreground character is wearing black shirt and overall tone of his skin/cloth is dark. While the background is also dark.
When foreground and background elements have same color values, our eyes can't figure out what to look at and therefore we are not going to like the image.
The best for you to do right now is to study color theory. Gnomon's color theory DVD training is one of the best options. Just do a google search to find it.
