I’ve been debating very hard on just buying Photoshop. It seems to me as a must have… One question I want to ask before going down to the store and purchasing it is this… When it comes to item, sprite, animation, npc, and different forms or gfx creation that includes some sort of animation is there any kind of way that Photoshop can cut down on the time it takes for me to create something… example:
Say I’m creating a sprite is there a way it can automatically render the walking animations so I don’t have to for every single sprite.
So that’s all I want to know. Thanks and I’ll wait for answers.
I have an ACA certification in Photoshop CS5 and CS6. That being said I would like to tell you about the percs and craps about Photoshop. Photoshop SUCKS for pixel art, there are so many other free softwares out there that are better for Pixel Art. If you’re going to spend money for pixel art buy Pixen. I hear it’s pretty good. Another Crap about photoshop is it sucks for vector art and painting. If you’re looking for a painting software, use Krita. It’s free and AMAZING! If you’re looking for Vector art software, use Adobe Illustrator or Inkscape. So what is Photoshop good for? I find it good for developing GUI’s and adding effects to images, creating buttons and web related content… Photo Manipulation… you know what Photoshop really is… a Photo Manipulator… meaning it’s made for adding effects and editing images, and has SOME features for 3D and SOME features for web stuff… if you’re going to use it for anything else, there are better alternatives out there… trust me, it’s not a must have,
