Although this is more or less opinion based, I'd say After Effects might be worth to look at. It plays well with other Adobe products, so importing a multi layer .psd containing your graphics to a ae project is not a problem it all. It also meets most of your specifications, AE allows you to set values at certain keyframes and AE calculates the frames ...

If you're comfortable in Excel, you might look at Microsoft Access. It's intended for small database needs like you're describing. Once you learn Access, you can build your own reports, invoices, and forms to make it easy to enter data. It can also work with images, for example thumbnails of your designs.

I think there are 2 distinct steps in designing a mood board: Form/style of the mood board: freeform or tight pattern, what type of images, soft or bright colors, fonts - these factors are determined by what the mood board is for. Once you have decided on a style, you need to come up with a way to put everything together - a software to do the mood board. ...

simply put https://gravit.io is a Reincarnation of Fireworks, but web based. Check it out, its amazing. Only thing we are waiting for is an open API in order to build our own plugins and add to marketplace. It also is still missing a couple of features here and there. But it is catching up so quickly. I can see me finally turning off my Adobe Subscription ...

The graphic you posted could be done using a mouse (or, likely a Wacom) into a full on graphic editor, like Illustrator or Photoshop but it also could have been done much more cheaply on a phone or tablet and a stylus (or even a finger)! Even the free iOS Notes app can scribble text, though it's not as good as some of the ones you could find in the store. ...

You'll want to be using a vector application for the most part. Affinity Designer is a good prosumer option while Inkscape is the opensource option. Sketch is another option but its intended more for Interface design than the two aforementioned but it can be used for logos. If you mean an app for mobile you could try Adobe Illustrator Draw since you're on ...

There are reasons why people pay money to learn graphic design in school. So they can learn "from scratch" how to be a graphic designer, including principles and tools. With all due respect, I feel you need to carefully re-read the answers you have gotten here. Then do more research yourself. For example, go to job search websites and see what skills are ...

After 15 years in the field i would say the very short answer is to learn the Adobe Suite, mainly Photoshop, Illustrator and Indesign. Some might argue this for various reasons, but generally these apps are currently the top 3 tools for professional designers. At the same time you need to get some work done for some friends or whoever is willing to give you ...

I'm posting a very limited answer because the real scope of it. I want to learn Graphic Design from scratch and be job ready in this field. I must say I have lived all my life doing "graphic design" "related" things, for example in high school one periodic table that was stoled two days after by a fan. I studied 4 years in the university, and worked on ...

I have been in the graphic design business for a while (1986), and right now, my programs of choice are Adobe In-Design, Photoshop and Illustrator. I am using the Cloud version of all of these programs, which is becoming the way of the world I'm afraid. But they do keep your software up to date automatically. My expertise is in the world of Print, not Web ...

Some of the more "obscure" drawing apps offer this sort of feature. These do, and in personal order of preference // with commentary: ibisPaint // Funky, dated UI hiding VERY good performance and features. Good use of pressure in Pencil, too. MediBang Paint // Busy UI, but ENORMOUS feature list. Incredible Power, like a desktop app on an iPad. Concepts //...

I assumed that would be a continuous path moving from one point to the next (as you mentioned stitching) but it looks like they are actually just a bunch of squares and triangles, rotated around a common center. In which case... Draw a sqaure: Use a transform effect (Effect → Distort & Transform → Transform... ) with a rotation and a number of ...

No, no such software exists. Indeed if a computer program could decompose a image with this kind of accuracy that would mean millions if not hundreds of millions losing their job. This is smack in the middle of artificial intelligence land. Also this would devalue the drawing skill to a point where whats the point of doing it. I mean computers can not even ...
