I would recommend Principle ( only for mac ). If you really want a lot more control try Adobe XD. I have used Principle a couple of times and it works great. Haven't used XD but it sure can help you out.

IrfanView solved the problem. When saving a .gif file in IrfanView you can choose which color in the image should be transparent, and the exact color map index of the chosen color will be used as transparent.

SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics) is an XML based vector image format. You can use your coordinates and path descriptions to write your SVG code directly in any text editor. You describe your image using SVG path elements, using various drawing commands as well as basic shape elements in combination with fills and strokes etc. You can find more info on SVG ...

You can take a good photo of the logo, or have it scanned. Then use Inkscape to trace it acordingly to the instructions with the photo as a base. Edited. You can not trace a logo using formulas, but yes, if a logo has parameters you can use them, for example, the line A is one thirth of the line B. The total width is 20 times larger than the stroke C. ...

I think the tool used is interdisciplinary effort, commonly known as Team Work. If an ilustration is made to ilustrate, probably it is made by an ilustrator using a program made for ilustrations; Corel Draw, Ilustrator, Inkscape, Draw Plus. You have the engenner, teacher or whatever making a base diagram and an ilustrator making ilustrations. It is a pice ...

They are most likely drawn by a human on a computer. Manually, with some definition of manual. It always strikes me a bit weird how people this day and age can not draw simple line drawings themselves. So to begin to answer this question I would ask you how long would it take for you to draw the following image with a pencil and paper? Image 1: How long ...

InDesign indeed is not performing enough with such huge documents. Once that said, you can think of a script that will generate documents one record at a time. But given the extensive amount of documents to produce, you may consider PDF/VT solutions like DesignMerge from Meadows Publishing, XMPie from Xerox, SmartStream designer from HP or Callas PDFChip. ...

Similar in principal to joojaa, here, my post concerns itself with the whys and tries, more than the whats. If you're at a plateau in your learning for particular digital processes then why not take a step back? Perhaps you can achieve more in a completely different way. Sometimes I find, for instance, that the perfect image cannot be created digitally ...

This is more like a long comment. Moving from pixel graphics and natural media thinking to vector graphics is a huge mental leap to quite many users*. It takes some effort about a month or 2 of very intense effort to really get into it. The fastest way to learn is to actually start from scratch. Every vector does not have to be closed. Live paint is not ...

Well, you can always just go on learning how to paint in Photoshop, it's usually the number one choice for Digital Artists. You can also try out other programs like paint tool SAI, just do some research. I personally love using Photoshop, it was really lame at first, but you should get better, faster, and more organized with practice. If you want to know ...

Install the latest version, Photoshop CC 2015. No point learning on an outdated piece of software, especially considering all of the web-focused tools Adobe are adding to their software at the moment. If you're studying you should be able to get a Creative Cloud subscription with a student discount, which will give you access to Photoshop, Illustrator and ...

I had the very same problem before and i didn't find a successful solution so i did this: I organized my fonts in a nested folder way Now i use Linotype FontXplorer X (For mac, in windows i cannot replicate the function) and i search the fonts by path. So when i look for 'sans geometric' I get the fonts that are in that folder. That's the best solution ...

Two font managers I have used for the last few years Suitcase Fusion and FontExplorer X. Both are extremely useful solutions. I personally much prefer FontExplorer, which is what I currently use. FontExplorer lets you easily and automatically organize fonts with Smart Sets. Manually sort your fonts in to groups. It has easy activation control with ...

There are plenty of font management software solutions out there. I personally prefer Suitcase Fusion for individual but if you have a company I would suggest Universal Type Server. Both software are developed by Extensis. If you use Adobe you could use their Typekit. Also related: Font management tools for Mac What is a good free font management tool ...

My 2 cents. Besides the already mentioned, Daz3D, Poser and Design Doll there are 2 more I know: Makehuman: http://www.makehuman.org/ which can be used in conjunction with Blender. IClone http://www.reallusion.com/iclone/default.html I use a lot Daz3D. It is free and a solid program. So that would be my first choice.

In the realm of "Free" alternatives, two pop into my mind that I use: Blender A free 3d Rendering engine which Offers a variety of rendering and animation options for creating photos and movies. EDIT: Since the original request was for the wooden mannequin, here's that exact model already done for you in blender for free: Wooden Mannequin - Rigged by ...

All 3D apps that I have used could do this. Most modern posing apps have have a much more elaborate model than that but many can also use a a classic wooden mannequin. But perhaps of special interest is Poser 3D. Poser was originally meant for this purpose only (tough years of adding features means that's no longer just the case) there is a number of ...
