Watch These Photoshop Experts Try/Fail at Using Photoshop 1.0

Photoshop, the program that allows its users to crop, manipulate, and perfect pictures from less-than-stellar creations to creative masterpieces, recently celebrated its Twenty-Fifth birthday. So for the sake of educating the public on the history of such a great piece of software and for the LOLs, CreativeLive decided to provide such a great service.  The group asked a collection of current well-known Photoshop designers — Dave Cross, Jared Platt, Ben Willmore, Chris Orwig, Julieanne Kost, Aaron Nace, Tim Grey, Matt Kloskowski, and Jason Hoppe — to take a quick dive into the original Photoshop 1.0, and disastrous hilarity ensued.

Vince McMahon’s New ‘Muscle & Fitness’ Cover Make Me Scared of Him Even MORE…

FEAR THE OWNER/CEO OF WORLD WRESTLING ENTERTAINMENT!!!

The fact the WWE Chairman and CEO Vince McMahon is physically jacked-to-the-max is no secret to us, the wrestling fans. However, the fact that Vince McMahon is STILL jacked-to-the-max at the age 69 is simply astonishing. So everyone, take a good look at his latest Muscle & Fitness cover — yeah, he’s been there before — in which I suppose that look he’s going for is a re-imagined Hercules Hernandez and/or an older/richer version of the Junkyard Dog from the 1980s and 1990s.

‘Diablo III: Reaper of Souls’ Game Boy Version Isn’t Always Online or Real…

Diablo III: Reaper of Souls' Game Boy Version Isn't Always Online

With the recent release of the next installment/first expansion of the ‘Diablo III’ saga, ‘Reaper of Souls,’ I’m almost positive that the first thought of many a gamer was WHEN WILL IT BE RELEASED ON THE GAME BOY. You know, that same Game Boy that debuted in 1989 and was retired by Nintendo in 2003.  But still, WHAT THE HECK, NINTENDO?!?! Anyway, even though the Game Boy port doesn’t exist, South Korea blogger Laptick decided to create the thing on his own. Well, he did at least create the packaging, as well as the physical Game Boy cartridge. Continue reading “‘Diablo III: Reaper of Souls’ Game Boy Version Isn’t Always Online or Real…”

Love PhotoShop? Don’t Have The $$$? Here’s Some Alternatives!

I love using Adobe PhotoShop (my old, er, “classic” CS3 version of it); it allows me to touch-up photos, create graphical designs from scratch or translate them from sketches, and creating presentation images and graphics. However, for most of the population, PhotoShop offers WAY TOO MANY features to explore and wade through, and it costs WAY TOO MUCH money (moolah, cash, coin, duckets, paper, Benjamins) to spend, and is likely too complicated to use for normal, minimal tasks. Well, that’s what you have The PractitioNERD is here for, and we’re going to share my three favorite of the best and powerful (and CHEAP) alternatives to Adobe PhotoShop that still have tons of features.
