Ask a designer *Adobe softwares*
 
Since i am a rookie at brewing but working as an editor and designer, i though i would help you guys out with photoshop, illustrator & inDesign.
I will also attach a pdf guide how to make the common ribbons and other goodies (still working on it).

Post your questions and i will answer them. :)
Please write which version and what software you're using so i know what features you can use.

I'm happy to throw my help in as well. I'm an art director at an ad firm and spend 12-14 hours a day using adobe products.

Okay I have a question I'm trying to convert a Hop into a Bee. My plan is to take clip art hop and apply stripes to look like a bee, but maintain the hop details. Do I create some sort of layer mask that can change the color yellow and black? I have some experience with PS from a photo standpoint.

Thanks for any help.

If you post an image of the hop you plan on using i'll try and make a screencast in the next day or two

I have a Mac with no special software. I have played around with MS Publisher (on a PC) to make some labels but want to move to the Mac. What software should I use to make basic labels for personal use??
Thanks

I'd poke around the mac app store. There is one program that looks like it has some pretty high ratings called Pixelmator that is only $15.

Do you have illustrator? If you want it from photos photoshop is the best. When it comes to vector illustrator is best. If you do have illustrator please send me a picuture of a bee you like (the composition) and i will help you out. :)
