I'm really sorry, but I don't like photoshop.  Maybe I just can't get a handle on how to use it, but even If I did I don't consider a computer program to be art.  It's not the same as the classic artists who work with real utinsels and mediums.  It's like the differnece between playing soccer and a video game. Who's the better athlete? C'mon... whistling2.gif

Hahaha... Photoshop can be really funny to mess around with though, I like to put lense flares behind people's heads to make them look like Jesus! grin2.gif

Nothing wrong with Photoshop, the more you use it the more you learn to do and you can do some pretty cool stuff in it

"People Mock what they don't Understand" sweetpumper? No, I believe we hate what we don't understand, and I understand that I hate photoshop for making art as simple and readily available to make as a generic McDonald's cheeseburger.  Art is three parts; vision,creation, and interpertation.  Photoshop bridged the gap for those who may have had vision but no way to convey it, which may be fortunate for people like Bizarro, but shows no importance in the art world.  Photoshop is a tool, I use it to edit photos for my newspaper, but as for the realm of art it will never gain enough recognition as an artform to be taken seriously. whistling2.gif

Bizarro, I comend you on your manipulation of pixels and varying hues. (Your Photoshop works.)

   grin2.gif Tool is an awesome band. Seriously, they're awesome.

Nothing like whipping out that 5' x 4' canvas and laying down about 50 dollars worth of oil paint eh?  I love oils.  My favorite medium.  But I love computer driven
art as well. It is just a different medium as far as I am concerned.  I certainly have
no love of Art 101 displayed as 'works of art' in oil either...and I have seen plenty of that...believe me!

Artists Rock!  Hey I guess I rock too....yay me

Hmmm I do like computer generated work, but if I'm honest I do find it frustrating when I put alot of effort and time to get my work perfect in my eyes, then find someone has done an equally stunning peice but only spent an hour or so, sat at a computer.
My favourite medium is Pen and ink, using cross hatch as a shading and toning tecnique and maybe add colour at the end by using a very watered down coloured ink washed over the top to give a feeling of depth.

Funny to mess around with?

Anyone who could possible mock the uses photoshop has obviously doesn't know how to use it or they had their eyes closed at the time.

It is simply brilliant, and more people should have access to software of this quality, unfortunately the license's are rediculously priced and therefore only a handful will ever see its true potential. (that's those of you who actually bought it in the first place  tongue.gif )

Photoshop wasn't designed to bridge the gap between art and computers, it was designed to as were flash, fireworks etc to create great effects, be it an image or graphic.

Photoshop IS a tool and thats all it is. I don't take any 'art' created in Photoshop seriously. Too many people that can use a computer also think that because they have certain programs that they are 'artists', though some of it can be very impressive. Anyone who can't put pen to paper and create something shouldn't take themselves too seriously with powerful programs like this. rolleyes.gif

Art is about creativity, thought and imagination.What does it matter what medium you use to express your thoughts or imagination? According to you if a brush or pen isn't present then you are not an artist.

What about those of us who have published work that was typed on a computer? Does that mean I am less of an artist? I don't think so......You obviously have great imagination mixed with humour.....apples eh? tongue.gif
