Photoshop or Illustrator?

Author Message
Message posted at 11/11/2011, 06:49:37 AM by Pinkpapertini
I have Adobe Creative Suite that I would like to begin learning how to use. I would like to learn how to create things such as the attached image. Would I begin with Photoshop or Illustrator to create things like this? Or is it something totally different?

Thanks so much for your input!

Do any of you use photoshop as a primary tool, combining photographs and drawn work and all the tools of Ps including the clone,brush,filters etc for your work here at dreamstime.?



If so how do you handle issues to do with interpolation and filters?



Thanks

Illustrator it is. Output of text in Ps is horrible.
Try it: Type a few words in Ps and zoom in to 100%. Look at the edges of the letters (especially at curves). Do the same with Illustrator (make it, save it and open it in photoshop and zoom in to 100%). As you can see the edges of the words in Illustrator are sharp, while the letters in Ps....

The attached file is a perfect Illustrator example.

Julesunlimited,

That's not exactly true. In fact, it all depends on how your workflow on PS is to produce acceptable lettering. First of all, remember that as any other elements, text are also bitmaps and not vectors, and any over-processing can leads to awkard results. Here are some basic tips:

- Always leave the lettering to the final stages of your work, instead of beginning with it on large sized artworks. See, when you reduce the whole composition, lettering will be seriously affected (specially if already rasterized). On the contrary, Illustrator deals with lettering as vectors, so resizing won't affect the final result.

- Finally, before rasterizing your lettering on PS, select the Type Tool and type something. Then, use the top drop menu with the following options "None, Sharp, Crisp, Strong & Smooth" and select the best option for your text in order to avoid the mentioned awkward results. Test yourself.

CHECK HERE

- Then rasterize everything and save at the highest quality.

Hope it helps.

i think a fusion is usually required at some point in learning phase, you would need to learn both in the long run, although you can start with any, if you go with photoshop, you would learn a bit of illustrator with shape drawing and vector masks.., and if illustrator, then raster effects will make you learn a bit of PS

I would do that kind of illustration in a vector program like illustrator (or inkscape, in my case). That way you can sell vector files too.

Inkscape is NOT the same. It is a vector handling program, but has different features.

Tell the Sign Maker or Silkscreener that when they need to increase your 6" tall raster format illustration to 18" or take one of your absolutely adorable ponies and blow it up to 4' tall to be incorporated into a vehicle wrap.

Photoshop is a fun and extremely useful tool that enables many things, but it does not do everything.

If you are drawing for yourself and just for fun, you are probably fine staying with Photoshop but sine you are here on this site, I assume you want to have some commercial success as well. Start playing with Illustrator. It has a larger learning curve than Photoshop but it drastically expands the commercial market for your work.
