You can find plenty of great tutorials all across the web. For starters, try IceFlowStudio’s channel on YouTube, or Bert Monroy’s podcasts on Revision3. Try as many as you can, as you should start picking up tips and tricks here and there.

You can also look into getting Scott Kelby’s “Down & Dirty Tricks” books. They’ll teach you some really cool and versatile Photoshop functions that you can use over and over again. If you have the money, you should also invest in a membership to NAPP (National Association of Photoshop Professionals) for a year. There are lots of great tutorials that you can only access as a member, so do as many as you can before your membership expires. That will give you a pretty solid foundation in Photoshop.

To really excel at design, though, you’re going to need to invest in Adobe Illustrator as well as Photoshop. Logos should never be created in Photoshop, since they need to be vectorized (which the first example you linked to is definitely not). Also, I hate to say it, but those examples are very amateurish, and are made using mostly Photoshop brushes that they probably aren’t commercially licensed to use. Even the most uninitiated “designer” can make things look pretty snazzy with very little effort, but if you’re looking to make graphic design a career, you’re going to have to familiarize yourself with the actual tools in Photoshop, and not rely on quick fixes like that. Good luck!

What are the employment outlook for people majoring in “information system”?

Question by Fuentes: What are the employment outlook for people majoring in “information system”?
I would like to know how the future is for people who are majoring in: Business Administration emphasis in Information System. I read articles online and on the paper and they all say that people majoring in information system is a bad idea. Mostly because they don’t know what it is. I don’t know what it is or what kind of work they do.

There’s one article that says that people with a bachelor’s in Information System have a 13% unemployment rate and that number will go higher in the future. I want your opinion and honesty of how the outlook for people with that degree is. Is there job security in the near future (2-3 years from now) or should it be recommended that people should major in something else. If people continue to pursue with that degree how would an undergrad or recent graduate get an internship? Please be honest (brutally honest), I might be influenced with what you say.

Best answer:

Answer by Richard L
I majored in Computer Information Systems (CIS) and there are a variety of directions that you can go with this career. If the 13% unemployment rate number is correct that is not bad considering the actual US employment rate is probably approaching a real number of almost 20%.

If you like Technology then this is a good degree. If you are not sure what the degree is about you need to research that before you pour money and time into getting this degree. I’ve given you a list of jobs that would be possibilities for a CIS (or eqivalent degree) graduate.
