Adobe Photoshop


My dad finally downloadet crossover office and I've got Photoshop 6.0 now...
Does anyone know, how to use Brushes and Textures? I tried to download some, but it as I expectet, it didn't work... Is there a way to use them?

And another question: Where do I get good looking fonts (not the normal ones, they are kinda borring)?

Thanks

how to use? as in normally within the application? you're best off looking at a windows help site and the adobe documentation really...

as for fonts... just try "crazy free fonts" in google or something... there's a billion font sites out there.

I think I can't use brushes, because I use PS with Crossover... Or I don't know how to get them...

and with the fonts... I didn't find any for Linux

Tiffany raises a question I've had now that I'm trying out linux. How do fonts work in Linux? Windows and Mac have the the same fonts, but you have to have the one for your operating system. What does Linux use?

Also how are these installed?

Installing TrueType Fonts in Linux

How you install new fonts varies by distro.

You should try GIMP it does everything Photoshop does but is easier to use.
Grokking the GIMP

Take a look at the brush tutorial here:

X.org + Freetype can use TrueType fonts which is what Windows uses. Just need to copy them to wherever fotns are installed in your distro and run fc-cache

no way GIMP can do everything Photoshop can do, just like any drawing program in Linux... they all are archaic compared to CorelDraw, Illustrator, or Freehand.

I use photoshop 7, gimp is still 3 panes... not one. making it hard to switch tools. Gimp can do just about everything photoshop can do, but there are still things it cannot do. There are features in Gimp that are not in photoshop.

Gimp cannot import layered TIFF files, 8 or 16 bit.
Gimp's menus are harder to find items.... they are several levels deep just to get to 'levels'.

I am comparing PS7 to the new Gimp.
Now the new PS is tons better than Gimp.

However, for a free application it is king.

Illustrator is a vector program. You cannot properly compair programs that are designed for different uses.
CorelDraw is similar, however, the functionality of CorelDraw I am unaware of.
