I don't believe we've had a discussion on the methods of using Photoshop for completely digital/no-hand-drawing-allowed designs for diaper tapes. I can't draw worth a damn but I know Photoshop like the back of my hand. Essentially what I want is for some kind of collaboration between Photoshop professionals and those who know Photoshop well. Stuff from the right DPI and size of the document, who will do printing for a roll of tape, methods of producing a good effect of something, etc.
So what I've done in the past is grabbed a picture of a diaper (tape was ruined by the fabric over it), used the quick select tool in PS to make a selection around a star or the moon or something then used make work path to convert it to a vector drawing so I could bump up the quality after I went over everything initially.
Making your basic diaper tapes is super easy but that's not the goal of this. I want to do everything custom and I want to only use inspiration, not print out someone else's design and grab some packing tape. I know Photoshop well, but there's always a new way to do things and a better way sometimes, so I thought this would be a good way for people with similar interests to come together with their knowledge.
Please no questions about how to use Photoshop, get Photoshop, etc.
