Where I can get some nice wood texture brushes for photoshop and also maybe ones that look like windows?

Question by Emilia: Where I can get some nice wood texture brushes for photoshop and also maybe ones that look like windows?
Wood – realistic
Windows – the kind that you have in your home : )

For free?

Answer by Sunshine
Get an account on DeviantArt.com.
haha, no this is not spam. There are actually some amazing photoshop brushes made and offered by the users there, and they are free, safe, and most are made very well.

When you get there, just click on the “Resources and Stock Images” category on the left hand side of the screen. It will give you more options, where you should find “Application Resources”. If you click on that and then type in what you are looking for in the search bar, you should get many options of brushes to use. Also, you will need to click the “photoshop brushes” option on the lefthand side, so only photoshop brushes show up. Make sure that at the right hand side of the screen, near the top, that “All Time” is selected. Because that will give you the most popular brushes that match your searching criteria.

Here is the search for wood:

There are not as many options for windows, so here is just one that I thought may work well:

I hope this all is useful for you!
You should definately search around the brushes, tutorials and textures sections on DeviantArt (as well as the rest of the site) if you have not already. I think you may find it very intresting. 🙂

How to I keep Photoshop CS4 Windows from overlapping the tool palettes?

Question by shamelessgrin: How to I keep Photoshop CS4 Windows from overlapping the tool palettes?
I like to edit images in photoshop by floating all the windows in the interface. But it gets incredibly annoying when the windows overlap the tools. Is there anyway I can make sure the tools are always in the foreground? Or at least make them jump to the foreground when I click on “layers” for instance?

Answer:

Answer by katie R
This is a weird problem and i don’t think i fully understand what this dude’s problem is..

Cause usually in Photoshop CS4 the tools palettes always comes above all other open Photoshop windows.

Do i need too put in a CD key for Photoshop CS4 when i upgrade to windows 7 from XP?

Question by Aiden: Do i need too put in a CD key for Photoshop CS4 when i upgrade to windows 7 from XP?
I currently have Windows XP and i want to upgrade to Windows 7. The problem is, the 2 programs (Microsoft Office 2007 and Photoshop CS4) had already been installed on my laptop but didn’t come with the disks. I need too have these programs for School work and personal use. So when i install windows 7, will these programs not work? Is there a way to get the CD key without the disk? I need help people.

Thanks

Answer by korgrue
You cant do a direct upgrade from XP to Win 7. It has to be a clean install. You will have to reinstall all of your software again. So yes, you will have to re-enter your Photoshop CS4 key.

You will need to purchase CS4 in order to reinstall it. But you might want to wait. CS5 is due out soon.

can someone tell me what’s the difference between cs4 on a mac vs cs4 on windows?

Question by Jason365: can someone tell me what’s the difference between cs4 on a mac vs cs4 on windows?
i got a new job and they’d prefer if i use cs4 on mac rather than cs4 on windows…….in my opinion it’s silly. my pc is super fast. so what gives?

Best answer:

Answer by Justin S
Well, as far as I know the only real difference is that the windows CS4 has a 64-bit and 32-bit version of photoshop and the mac version only has the 32-bit. Files made on one version should open up fine on the other. And to further favour the windows version, it should run on a mac via bootcamp anyway 😛

Sounds silly to me too, I think just because Apple has this reputation people think that windows is inferior and you HAVE to only use Mac. As far as Adobe products go like CS4 it doesnt matter. If you were talking about using software only available on Mac like Final Cut or Logic then it would make sense. Apple annoys me because they buy out all these companies, then make their software Mac exclusive.

Many companies stick with Mac’s, they are generally ‘more reliable than PCs’, less prone to viruses, technical support is probably good. If the company workflow is all Mac based they might think having a pc is a bad idea (though it probably doesnt matter).

The best thing about the windows version is that you should be able to run it on a mac with bootcamp. You are allowed to install CS4 on both ‘a home computer and a work computer but not use both at the same time’ But then if you dont have a mac what do you do?

Q&A: Photoshop CS4 not reading pressure sensitivity on my Wacom Intuos 3 on Windows 7?

Question by Phil Pecoraro: Photoshop CS4 not reading pressure sensitivity on my Wacom Intuos 3 on Windows 7?
With all the latest Wacom drivers installed on my computer, Photoshop CS4 just stopped picking up the sensitivity. My tablet works in SketchBookPro, but not PS. Is there any fix for this. What do I do? HELP!

Best answer:

Answer by P&G
It could be your brush choice. Go into the brush engine and see what controls are set to Pen Pressure. There must be a dozen different controls that can have Pen Pressure turned on or off with variable sensitivity.

What’s better in your opinion Photoshop cs4 on windows or mac?

Question by Sillycocopuff!: What’s better in your opinion Photoshop cs4 on windows or mac?
I’m struggling to decide if my family should buy photoshop cs4 on mac or windows. Which is more challenging or are they exactly the same?
Is the new elements version reasonable?
And also is the student addition cs4 the best version to get or is extended better?

Best answer:

Answer by korgrue
They are the same. The shortcut keys are slightly different.

Elements does not have 95% of what CS4 has. It is a very basic photo editor.

How to install Photoshop brushes on Windows Vista…?

Question by Leis: How to install Photoshop brushes on Windows Vista…?
Whenever I try to download a photoshop brush on Vista, I am denied.
The message that pops up says,
“Error: Access is denied.
Cannot create (file names)
Adminsitrative privileged may be required.”
My account is an Administrator account as I am the only one that uses this computer.

How can I change this so that I am able to download the brushes???

I hate how finicky and difficult Vista is.

Why don’t you download GIMP it is a carbon copy of Adobe Photoshop
It has more brushes than you can shake a stick at.
It is a true desktop illustrator.
