Minneapolis Jam: January 2012


NORDEAST COMICS SUMMIT
Summary: Last night we discussed some of the fundamentals of Photoshop, a program that all cartoonists — even if they don’t own a copy — should have a working knowledge of. We talked about basic tools, basic functionality, how to clean up your scan, what the difference is between “alias” and “anti-alias” … and more! But instead of me trying to sum up the whole thing, why don’t you just watch it:
