• Effective October 15th, all Youtube content threads that are posted within the creative media section will be subjected to being moderated before being displayed. Over the past year we've noticed lots of new members and a few old members that come here to advertise (obviously here since we're the largest Kingdom Hearts fan base community why wouldn't you) their Channel to promote new subscribers, likes, and displaying their media. However there is a huge difference between creative constructive media criticism, and borderline advertisement. So please, before you post here, understand how the creative media section works, if you have any questions or concerns regarding this change please reach out, we always like to hear ideas. Few might not like this idea, but it does help keep my section stay organized and not crazy looking, I would like to keep the traditional platform of what the section main purpose is for. It's to help build new and old artistry to an entire whole level.



    Here's how it will work :

    • If you post a thread within the creative media section that is youtube content related to your channel, it will be moved to the "Creative Media Youtube Showing Content thread", a sticky'd thread where members can all over discuss and see everyones content all at once rather than making it self promoting, by making your own thread, if you get my drift. The whole idea behind this is to get members involved in everyones media, and the purpose is to showcase your works, but not self advertisement right? Its all about the constructive criticism and giving everyone the same feedback and layout of how display and showcasing video media should look like.

    • If you have already posted a thread regarding your youtube content, you will not be affected by this change and your thread will be untouched and you can continue to post and discuss accordingly with your peers.


    Social Media Advertisement Content :​

    Now I know lots of new members (out of the blue suddenly became youtube friendly, you're not slick) be-aware that you cannot use the Creative Media section as a gateway to advertise your media without wanting, giving and receiving criticism from your forum family. The idea behind the Creative Media is to help showcase and help improve everyones work or arts, whether it's digital, traditional, etc. Not to promote then leave, it's not fair to the community.

you're getting back into it. it's a staircase above the gimp stuff. my only complaint is it's lacking a little.

One layer of the lighting taken away, making it less yellow/green. I don't know. Last modification I make to this unless it's huge.

What do you mean? I use gimp >.> Because I can't afford PS. Of course... PS can do things gimp can't with a button press. It just takes five layers for me to do it in gimp D:

No, trust me. Gimp has so many limitations. There are things you can do in Photoshop that you just simply can't or it'd take forever. Gimp's layers and stuff are fucked up too, and the layer effects suck shit. Like I HATE soft light in gimp, and screen/lighten. The quality of things is so much better with Photoshop. It would be worth acquiring Photoshop because the level of your skill will definitely increase with the use of it, and that's not a joke. I've been using PS since I was 11, because I was lucky, but I still had an increase in my skill level quickly because of this board.

Hell, if you're against the way this board typically gets PS, look into finding an older, but not too old, version of Elements. I forget who it was on here, but there is or was a member who was wickedly fantastic but she only had Elements. Just trust me in that acquiring Photoshop will help you, even if you take what you know and apply it to Gimp. You'll learn a lot more from using PS and then changing over to Gimp.

Well i definitely feel the limitations, but I feel like I can make do until then. I'm not against a free download of photoshop, so long as it is without a virus. My current computer can't handle it though, so I will have to deal with GIMP for a few more months until I get a new computer.

Nahh, it wasn't Corey. Definitively remember it being a woman. Haha.
Well I know he at least does use it ;p

Although GIMP is pretty awful it does have potential. I mean just look at this guy. He's the reason I even wanted to try GIMP in the first place.

Yeah. Well, GIMP has its ups and downs for sure. You can make some pretty cool stuff, like what Geocillin does.

No, I used it for a very short period until I got Photoshop CS3 as a present (my grandmother just happened to find it, brand new in wrapper, at an unclaimed baggage location. it was pretty cheap for her too, considering). I haven't used it in a long time.



As for the tag, I'd recommend working more on the far right side of the tag, and maybe trying to involve the stock a bit more into it.

Yes, Oathy.

Thanks. I may work on it more, may not. All depends, but I get what you're saying about stock integration.
