"Share For Share". Facebook term. All you need to know.
Share for share? That doesn't even make sense. What is this the stock market or something.

It's like a you scratch my back, I'll scratch yours. Plug for plug, it should really be called, but the internet term now is 'share'.


This is a song about cum on hotel walls.

If I'm being honest, when I googled it the immediate meaning I got was "Shit 4chan says", which made no sense to me ...

"Share For Share". Facebook term. All you need to know.

... but when I googled it later I thought this made more sense.

First time I've heard it though. I'm not keen on the implication that has of people spreading shit around simply because they have a lot of connections, rather than it is actually worth sharing.

Ok im gonna ask a question that will propably raise pitchforks and torches..Im in NG for a little more than a month so yeah...

WTF is clock day? I know , many of you expect this with all you might , for some its the single most important thing in this year but im clueless. I learned that there is a community born from NG that focuses on animation and has nicknames and themes based on clocks but , what is the CLOCK DAY. Is it like robot day were everyone submits content related to the day's theme? Are you guys giving away free clocks? What?

The portal used to have a crew of submitters who went under clock based guises, like StrawBerryClock or ... BlackMarketClock. They made simplistic Flashes with MS Sam voices for fun.

... although if you don't know who they are, it might be high time to retire that day. They haven't had a presence in the portal for a long while, now.

People used to form groups (and occasionally still do) in order to submit content under a shared label. The Clock Crew was one such group. These groups were infamous for submitting poorly created, poorly curated content and using the power of numbers to force their flashes through the judgement process.

This is the Clock Crew's most famous creation. The Clock Crew grew such in popularity that they eventually were regarded fondly by the majority of Newgrounds, so in their honour once a year Newgrounds celebrates by flooding each and every single portal with terrible trash and "5-bombing" it (by mass-voting the highest score).

Even as much as I advocate quality content, I can admit that it's a fuckload of fun.

Saw that Adobe posted this on Facebook. Seems like a really great concise primer. Obviously it doesn't cover everything, but it's a nice link to give to people asking how to improve.

Because it's discussing techniques that have been around for thousands of years and it presents them in an easily digestible fashion on a single page. But yeah, fight the power man, and all that jazz. *sigh*

You shouldn't care about who said what, if the information is good its good, if its presented well its presented well. If Walmart came out with an ad telling you how to check for lead in your paint, and it was presented in an efficient, accurate and well thought out fashion, then its an ad worth looking at.

Care more about the product and less about the creator, as long as the information is sound, it doesn't matter who made it. Right is right, no other way around it.

aye, I swear by Photoshop as one of the greatest graphical programs out there, but because of their choke hold on the market they charge outrageous amounts of money for the privilege of using the product, maybe its just me but £429 seems absolutely outrageous for a software licence.

Grumble grumble complain, grumble.

They charge that much because it's a good product and people are willing to pay for it. There's no choke hold they have on the market beyond that people generally think they make the best products.

They don't have a monopoly. There's nothing about their programs that forces you to use them to make any specific thing. There's nothing to stop other graphical programs being sold. There are plenty you can buy already. Adobe just make some of the best.

They used to back when dreamweaver flash and photoshop were the industry standard(though they kinda still are mostly), and since they realized a ton of people already pirate their stuff anyway they did the monthly subscription option which is actually a really good deal if you're making money off their products.

Hey guys, I was wondering how do you set up a uniform color palette window in photoshop? I wanna try to paint something monochromatic and remembered that you can have an entire window of a solid color an about 3 lines of variants. I don't have photoshop installed due to me repairing my computer, but I'm asking just so I don't forget later on.

Hi. Im not aware of that setting but , it sounds like a lot of trouble when you can approach it in a much easier way.

1) You paint the image in the colour you want.
2) You render it with the same colour selected but you set the rendering layers into different modes. Best example would be "multiply" for shading.

Aside from that you can always paint some blobs with the colours you like and then pick them from the blobs , so you are sure you are always picking the same tone. Thats what traditional artists do with their pallete.

Third option is to draw you image in B&w and then add a layer above everything , fill it with "bucket" and then set it to overlay.

There are many easy ways , im sure im missing more. Sorry if i didnt answear your problem , i just feele you are trying to do something easy the hard way :D

Cheers buddy!

You can create a layer on top of your drawing, fill it with a solid colour, and set the blending mode to "Colour". Additional solid fill layers with blending mode "Darken" and "Lighten" can be used to shift the light and dark tones respectively.

If you (rightfully) think that messing with the colours with the three single colour layers is tedious, you can achieve the same effect by using a gradient map adjustment layer, and putting it on top of your layers.

The "Create Adjustment Layer" button is at the bottom of the layers panel, and "Gradient Map..." is towards the bottom of the drop down menu that follows.

The gradient map is simpler to understand and alter than the blending mode layers. Dark colours will be replaced by the left side of the gradient, and light colours will be replaced by the right side of the gradient.
