My diploma thesis presents a comparison of production of typographic effects using two image editing programs, a professional-level software Adobe Photoshop and open-source tool Gimp.
Creation of typographic effects requires a lot of creativity, imagination and patience, as well as good knowledge of the software tools.
In the introduction I reviewed the field of typography, described the taxonomy of typographic fonts and presented various styles and effects which we often encounter in printed and digital media.
I have created two typographical effects using both software tools and compared functionalities and ease of use of all tools I have been using during the process. I have prepared detailed tabelaric overview of the process with description of the tools and their parameters.
My greatest challenge was to produce typographic effects as similar as possible using both tools, and in this way compare capabilities and ease of use of professional and free image editing softwares.
