I made my first design. I hope I did it right >.<

PS
I have an AnoHana profile design for adopt


It's really good for a first attempt~!
However, I think some of the images on the left hand side aren't very good quality (particularly Kogami and guy-with-glasses-can't-remember-his-name-anymore) which ruins it a bit for me.
I also kinda find the text for 'Division 1' and 'Criminal Profile' hard to read. I would use a different style.

(I had a look at the AnoHana design and it is absolutely adorable. Just wondering, did you make that one too? O.o)


bless your soul for the critics
I'll try and do better next time

oh, yes, I made that also. Thank you ( //// v //// )

The idea is nifty, although I find the KWMS gif quality a bit distracting...Still, good job :)

i think it has potential.
Possibly gif resizing so it's not just a line of gifs, it's unappealing to see half the time >.<

It's really cute. It's simple, but I love it. xD
I agree with Misfy on the gifs. I would spoiler them or make them smaller.
Also, I think the font used for the listing is a bit too big/bold. I would choose a thinner or smaller one.

Font is a bit hard to read (too light). The fancy picture frames stand out a bit too much. Otherwise, great.

I disagree with mayukachan. I think the font is legible easily ^^. If the text were any more concrete, and it would ruin the flow with the layout :P
I really like it!

I'm sorry, but I can't give you any advice, as I'm not really good at making them myself OTL. I can give feedback on graphics in general though :(

The best way to do it is to just start with something you love and try to design it. I love making profiles but when I started I just looked at a lot of peoples for inspiration. Then crafted my own style. Most importantly is to make something you love. The profile I recently re-uploaded is my favorite. I just love it~

I don't mean that. I mean, what software do everyone use? How can some people create buttons inside the images?

Most use photoshop. If you created your layout, you can use the slice tool to slice it up as you want (though there are some restrictions in order for it to work) and puzzle it back together to create links (buttons) inside your layout.

I don't know if that's possible with gimp though, but I'm positive it is.

GIMP can do anything PS can, excluding color modes, but who needs that if it's just for internet graphics?

I tried gimp, personally I think photoshop is easier to manage. Has more functions too.

Depends on the program you start with. I find GIMP is easier for beginners. As for functions, GIMP has many alternatives and is open source too which means there's a lot more features than PS.

Not really. It rather depends on the user. I for example tried out gimp, but I found it kinda sucked, function-wise and got myself Photoshop instead. It was hard too, but it was a lot easier to learn for me. I found many people here use photoshop, so I guess they are the same, but there are still others who prefer gimp cause they can work with it better or never tried photoshop, which is both completely okay. I don't think it can be decided whether photoshop or gimp is better in any way. One just has to try out for themselves.

And about the features. I doubt that anyone even uses 50% of all possible features of both programs, cause I know at least of photoshop has countless, so it really only matters to real pro designers who use the last bit of what a designing program has to offer. And I'm sure none of us is a pro in any way.

And where can I find tutorials that are effective for that kind of thing? (creating layouts/IG)

All I am finding is crappy tutorials that are very limited (how to create a light source, etc)

I don't think there are any tutorials about how to make MAL layouts. I think you should look in the best profile design threads and pick out some people with good layouts and simply ask them to give you some tips. Or just look at their layouts and try it out yourself.

That's the best advice I can give you.

Pretty much self taught myself.

Play around with the program, and get used to it.. that's how I got started.

I am still clueless about creating a profile design. I got photoshop but no idea how to use it (tried to play around with it, accomplished absolutely nothing)

I will never be a designer. I've been trying to render Firo (my avatar character) it has been like 2 hours and no results

Then try harder and stop saying things like "I will never be a designer'. If you really want to do this, then you can someday, if you keep it up and practice.

If not, well then just stop and leave it to the people who can do it.

The problem is, I don't know WHAT to search for. Everytime I search for photoshop tutorials, all I find is things like "How to type with a cool fire texture", or things like that. I wanna learn how to create a MAL profile.

I usually worked with transparent sigs in a different forum, but I hope to improve on making solid graphics...(is that what you call them?)

Edit: oh, how do you add links? like for my navigation page... i added that, but i actually have no idea how to link them...

Separate the images into smaller blocks and then, upload separately. After, paste the codes right after one another.
As for yours, it'd be
- Header
- About Me/Nav section split into four rows (Yes, combine the about me and nav)
- Everything below that

I probably won't be able to add links to this one then since that same row I was going to do a gif ><

But thank you!
