META: New forum topic

I just added a new sub forum called “How Do I …?” that’s meant to be a central location where people can go to get advice on how to create a given effect they want. For instance, I just got a question from someone on the best way to do stripes on a shirt, but I use the program so rarely I don’t really have a good answer.

So if you ever get stuck on a design and aren’t sure what to do, that’s your new home. Hopefully you pros will poke your heads in from time to time to answer the questions there as well.

  1. Ok, I was making this image and I wanted the silhouettes in the foreground to be in a kneeling embrace (sort of like this piece by Harlequin), but after I don’t know how many attempts and hours, I couldn’t figure out how to do it so I gave up and went with the standing pose. Any advice on how I could do it?

  2. JR, please go to the forum topic and post the question. You could be first!

    That’s sort of the whole point of making the forum in the first place and then making this announcement so that you can go there to ask these kinds of questions :-)

  3. I can’t remember my password or account name on the forum, otherwise I would have. Also I didn’t read the post properly before I posted it.

    I think it’s the same as your regular login here, no? I thought it all shared the same system. You should be able to reset the password via the email address on file, too.

  5. Done it, should be up there now.

  6. Great idea, Jeff! It could be used as a place to request Tutorials – at the moment I just try and spot comments on people’s threads that look like they’re asking for tips.
