Hey everyone,

I have just downloaded Construct and can't wait to start exploring all it's features. I was looking at some of the screen shots of other peoples work and am amazed at how good their graphics are. I was wondering how they do it. Doing it on a program like paint would take ages so what program do they use??

Sorry if I am asking dumb questions .. I'm not the most intelligent what it comes to graphical design/image manipulation.

Thanks heaps in advance.

when I make stuff I usually use photoshop and 3dstudio max, maybe flash if its easy to do in vectors. I know a few people use GIMP and paint.net as well. any of those are good choices.

I use paint.net, it has a really easy to use interface and is plenty powerful enough for my needs, plus being free is awesome. Gimp is another free option, more powerful than paint.net but i can't stand the interface.

Commerical

I try to use freeware where I can but sometimes I've had to buy a commercial application to get things done faster and has sometimes been the only way.

Mainly pencil+paper, scanner, photoshop, and 3ds max for animations(even for 2d).
You can try Artrage, it has a freeware version.
And Anime Studio it is a very good 2d animation tool too.

So you guys just get onto paint draw a rough image and then edit it with another program?? That sounds so much easier than is actually is... lol
