I am new here. I just register account here, for my son search some 3D information. I have a site. [url:3ii18j5x]https://www.randomstuffido.com[/url:3ii18j5x] This site does not have a logo. I see there is a Photoshop competition in our forum. I think it is time to make a logo for my site
[quote="ltiday":1eihkk6c]Hi I'm new here. I noticed that it says there is one drawing and one 3D competition a week. where will those competitions be on the site? I only see tabs for photoshop and photo competitions.[/quote:1eihkk6c]
Welcome to PxlEyes! Looking forward to seeing your work.
Being a web developer has never been easier, but that doesn’t mean it’s going to be easy. You have to be honest and ask yourself how far down this path of the web developer you want to go and [url=https://opengeekslab.com/:2ztkl6gp]read more[/url:2ztkl6gp] about it.
We begin with the basics.
Every web page is like a house. And as a web developer you’re going to start making these houses.
[quote="magicalfruittuts":2nqjiga7]I suggest that Pxleyes send out a mass email to all members in the email database. In case they are not aware that the Photoshop and Photography contests are currently active.
I've noticed in the last few months that most Photoshop contests usually only have 4 or 5 contestants. Some who may make multiple entries. Also, usually only around 35 people are voting.
When Pxleyes "closed" around 5 years ago there were a large number of talented and creative active members. At that time I checked the forums for about 6 months to see if Pxleyes would re-open - finally, I moved on.
Four years later, I visited the site to find an effect I used on a SBS and was surprised that the Photoshop and Photography contests had resumed. If someone would have sent me an email that the contests were then active, I would have come back much sooner. It makes me wonder if there are others out there who would come back if they knew. We could use more talent and competition to improve the experience.[/quote:2nqjiga7]I understand your frustration, but having spoken with members who chose not to return, all I can say is they had valid reasons. You just can't put toothpaste back in the tube.
[quote="still26":3ieislpo]Thank you, Angel, for your insightful comments.
So, what kind of suggestions can we give to Rob to make this site a tad more attractive?[/quote:3ieislpo]
I don't think it's up to Rob or any other single person to make the site more attractive.
It already has plenty of attractions with photo and photoshop contests and plenty of tutorials and things to read in the forums and it's all free. The only thing missing is meaningful communication. That would need all members to make an effort to communicate. However, no amount of persuasion will make anyone communicate about anything if they are not interested in doing it.
In my opinion people will enter contest and comment on entries only if they feel like it regardless of how many 'attractions' there might be on the site.
You and I both know from a previous site we were on that had plenty of reward systems for various things that those systems don't generate any meaningful interaction anyway. Most people don't want to be treated like donkeys which need carrots dangled in front of them to make them do anything. People just do what they like doing.
I suggest you simply accept the site as it is and keep doing the good work of encouraging people and setting a good example. Eventually others might start following your example and also have a go at critiquing entries and being helpful with tips. If not, at least you are still doing what you enjoy.
I think the novelty of photoshop and photo contests is just wearing off with the public in general. There seemed to be quite a lot of those type of sites with a lot of participation on the net in the past but over the years I noticed quite a few closed down due to lack of interest.
As to the topic of more involvement by members....well, you can lead a horse to water...but.... [/quote:3lysyyh5]
...try getting him to float.[/quote:3lysyyh5]
Hi CMYK, Apparently it can be done.
BTW, what happened to our shadow and perspective police? Haven't heard much from "him" lately. Is no one breaking shadow and perspective laws? Can we pat ourselves on the back for doing good?
and...... Does anyone know if Spaceranger is still around? He has been quiet for ages too.[/quote:3lysyyh5]
Plenty of people still break the shadow & perspective rules. I get tired of repeating myself, so I only comment on the more egregious entries.
Spaceranger has had computer problems.
[quote="still26":1vv78ym3]Thank you....success! YAY. [/quote:1vv78ym3]
Funny, when I type your name in the search bar, all your stuff comes up...you didn't use the search bar in the forum, did you? That's different.
[quote="BWR":ukli462o][quote="CMYK46":ukli462o][quote="BWR":ukli462o]I know this is old but there is a much much much much better way. I use "Session Manager" in Firefox. What this does is is saves sessions. Sometimes I will have 50, 100, or even more tabs open while searching for images for a Photoshop. I can save this entire session as lets say "Dog Photoshop" or w/e. Sometimes I change plans midstream and decide to make something else. I can then make ""Dog Photoshop2" session and I still have the original session in case I wanna go back.[/quote:ukli462o]
What's Firefox? [/quote:ukli462o]
What browser do you use?[/quote:ukli462o]
I used to use Firefox and Safari years ago. Firefox got worse and then Chrome came along. I understand Firefox is pretty good now, but since I'm using Chrome & Safari, don't see the need for a third browser. Besides, I was just kidding.
I am new member of Pxleyers. From Netherlands. Web designer with 4 years experience.
I hail from Kent in the UK.
I found this site a few days ago, looks like a great community.
My thing is photography, i prefer strange photography, the use of light, smoke, fire and anything else that can be used to reach strange or interesting effects.
I spend what spare time i have looking for new location to "play" in.

[quote="BWR":1jsw28a4][quote="skyangel":1jsw28a4]I am wondering if premade downloaded actions are allowed to be used in contests?
I have personally never used them because I thought they were someone elses work and it would be better to do the effect ourselves from scratch, even if we make our own actions from the steps to use in future contests. At least that way, people reading sbs will learn how to achieve the same effect.
Just curious because if we are allowed to use them, I have a few I would most likely use in future contests without needing to provide an sbs as to how they are done.[/quote:1jsw28a4]
That is so horrible if someone uses a pre-made action. That's sorta like "Let me Photoshop this for you BWR. Then you can click a button and say you did it."[/quote:1jsw28a4]
I agree with you BWR but I understand what Rob is saying. Very few make an SBS to explain how they actually made their entries so if they use a premade action and dont make an SBS, there is no way to prove it. Not everyone will admit to buying a premade action but personally I would mark an entry lower if they admit to using a premade action and higher if they actually showed in the sbs how they achieved the end result which is achieved by that action. Most effects are not that hard to do and there are plenty of you tube tutorials to teach how to do them. I just think using purchased premade actions is a lazy way out. That's just my opinion.
[quote="robvdn":38spi9zj]1. At http://www.pxleyes.com/courses/guide/guide.pdf page 9 you find more info on the mods.
- Update on this guide: Friiskiwi and Tordoni are no mods anymore.
2. Mods do not get assigned contests anymore, all photomods can mod all photo entries and all photoshop mods all photoshop entries.
- Advantage of this is that entries get modded faster.
3. If there's doubts or disagreements about a warning and or removal this is discussed between the mods.
4. http://www.pxleyes.com/other/the-eye/eye03.pdf page 74-79 you can find members asking questions to mods. It's explains a lot about how mods work.
Any questions? Just ask![/quote:38spi9zj]
"mods work"? They do? Haha.. just busting your cohones. Thanks for all your heard work around here Rob Van Damme. That's my nickname for you. I just made this for you. could have done a better job at extracting him but too lazy. One day I will.
According to all the latest versions of Adobe Reader supported for different operating systems, I installed the application following the version name on my AOL desktop. When I faced the installation issue I checked [url=https://emailssupports.com/aol-support/:15rga0tb]AOL support[/url:15rga0tb] and performed all the rules so that I do not face any issue while the installation.
[quote="solkee":27wfc39g]It would be a pity to see you leave but you must do what you feel best.
I very rarely vote in the 3D section due to time constraints and my lack of knowledge in the subject.
The results is up to the members, they vote the way they think is correct. The mods have nothing at all to do with the final outcome. The mods don't remove votes unless it is a blatant attempt to manipulate the score (eg. voting 1-10% on all entries in which that person has an entry). If the mods removed votes which they disagreed with then the mods would be manipulating the scores and that is not allowed and certainly not done.
We have all had entries that have finished lower than what we believe they should have, unfortunately the rest of the members didn't agree with us. Maybe it wasn't the rest of the members that got it wrong, maybe it was our belief in where the entry should have finished that was wrong. What I am saying is don't cry fowl just because you see the results differently. We have many members from very different cultures, art styles, education and so on which view things very differently. Therefore they will also vote very differently.
[color=#FF0040:27wfc39g][color=#FF0040][b:27wfc39g]To sum up I wouldn't pay $10 for some of the $1000000 artworks in museums, does that mean they are crap? It just means that they are not to my taste and if they were in a contest here at pxleyes I would vote them low.[/b:27wfc39g][/color:27wfc39g][/color][/quote:27wfc39g]
I know this is an old thread but I have just read it and I agree with what I highlighted in red from the above quote.
I think that in the end, art is very subject and no matter how valuable someone else might think it is, our own personal taste is what makes the final judgement of what is personally appreciated and of value to us personally.
just for sharing this site have provide some material about 3d models, texture and other template, specially for freebie can improve skills. enjoy it!
Welcome aboard, this is really a fun place and in the process of having fun one can learn a lot from some of the titans on this site. Please do not be shy to critique works, what makes it work for you and what doesn't, that way we can all grow in our craft. All the best.
Yes, for sure to comment on each entry would be time consuming and oftentimes not appreciated all that much "what do YOU know?" or "I know all that" kinda attitude. BUT, for some a bit of a suggestion on how to improve is appreciated. I welcome all suggestions for improvement, even if I don't agree with the reviewer.
I am here to learn from other artists as well. Please don't be shy to give a critique when you see the posts, it is the ony way we can learn.
Hoping to grow together in our craft.
