Advice on how to be a successful graphic designer. [more inside]
I'm interested in learning more about design and illustration, and I live in Florida. I thought about attending a conference here in Orlando (so no hotel or travel fees), but being new to this I am not sure about the presenters, and the price tag is hefty (even with my discount code, $395 for three days). So, creative Mefites, tell me what you think! [more inside]

I loaded GIMP on to my IMac but would like to put some fonts on it (like maybe some from 1001 fonts)...I am not tech-savvy (to say the least) and would appreciate how I can go about downloading such free fonts and adding them to GIMP. Thanks in advance for any help on this.

I am using GIMP and having the simplest difficult just cutting out an object (such as a briefcase). I want to cut object out and then place them in a different image....I can simply drag an entire layer to a new image but really need to know how to image-edit....I don't really know how to do it. I resorted to making a layer below and trying to erase around the object and that didn't work. I know how to do it in Photoshop but no longer have access to it in my office. If it matters I am on an IMac. I am kinda embarassed that I cannot figure out such a simple yet important procedure. Any help? Thanks so much for your input and time!

Photoshop is being extremely frustrating - I am trying to adjust the levels (or curves) of a layer of noise (created by making a black layer and then using filter->add noise). When I make the level or curve adjustment, the preview image reflects my changes, but then when I hit "ok", Photoshop ignores everything I just input and throws back the same thing I started with. I can't figure out why it is doing this or how to resolve it - what's going on?

I have an old Active XP-Pen graphics tablet with up to date drivers that I use for occasional graphic design work in Photoshop CS2. All seems to be fine except when I use the smudge tool. After a short while the action on screen becomes laggy and then Photoshop hangs completely. No amount of waiting has brought it back so far so I lose work. Will getting a nice shiney new Wacom tablet solve my problem or is this more likely a hardware issue on my PC's side? [more inside]

I use 10.5.2 and need Photoshop a few times a year. I went to school for design, so I'm annoyingly competent with PS and depend on some of the more 'pro' features, like CMYK (which LE or Elements lacks, I think) and Channel Editing (which Pixelmator seems to lack). [more inside]

I have Photoshop CS3 on a fairly new Macbook and for the last few days it's been running unbearably slowly (it takes around 3 minutes just to save a file). Everything else on the Mac seems to be working fine including Illustrator and Indesign so it must be a problem with Photoshop specifically. I tried reinstalling it but it had no effect, now I'm out of ideas.
