Did I hurt your ears?
I do design but only use Photoshop (PSE)only if I can't find another way to do it. ''
You aren't nuts if you don't enjoy PSE. Photoshop is not user-friendly or intuitive.
Let's be honest, it's a pain in the arse or we'd all use it. HAH.
I ask my customers what they need before I create files. I provide 300 DPI+ files in 6x9 with a 1/8 inch bleed margin. :) This is what they tell me they want.
I give it...then they come back with...wanting PSE Layered files.
Basically a Photoshop layered file is a zip file with each layer you created in Photoshop laid out so the people and/or publisher can take it apart and put it back together again if they want. This is really good if they want to screw with your font.
But I'm under the opinion that if you don't tell me up front, it's not my problem. But I think I'm getting cranky in my old age.
I hate designing on Photoshop. Am I the only one?
If I provide a 300DPI file--why should it matter...it shouldn't except for the PSE Layered Files.
Photoshop has cameltoe! I stand by this statement.
Anyway, I'm going nuts recreating my cover in the other file type. Don't you love doing something again, trying now to get the same effect in completely different program?
And all for my killer fee of $25 bucks. I could scream.
Or charge more.
From now--if you want PSE layered files, they must be requested at the start and there WILL be an extra charge for them.
Okay I think I've whined enough.
