Our time in Madagascar is coming to a close and while we are wrapping up patient stories my life just got a whole lot busier! We normally run our Communications Department with the following positions:
Communications Manager (we actually have two at the moment but one is transitioning in as the other is transitioning out)
Two full time photographers
Day Crew (Local Malagasy person) Translator
Day Crew Medical Photographer
Two Media Liaison Officers
A week ago one full time Photographer and our Graphic Designer left, so I got to pick up a couple of their jobs that they do each week. Recently we have started putting together before and after pictures of all the amazing transformations that have been taking place here. It’s all done in Photoshop so that is what I got to play with yesterday!
Now Photoshop is on both of my computers at home but I do my best to avoid using it – don’t get me wrong it is an amazing program and you are able to do incredible things with it … but give me Artisan ANY DAY!!!
It has been sometime since I have used PS and as I opened it up I thought “I could just take these photos up to my cabin and in 5 minutes have the same end product … with less stress and hassle :)”
I persevered however, told the Videographer that it has been years since I had used PS and my brain just doesn’t think like that anymore. He was more than happy to give me a helping hand and an hour later I had all the files I needed and I was done.
They probably would have noticed if I had done the job in Artisan (only because of the file names) but the end product would have been exactly the same!
Photoshop version – not sure of the font Artisan – font KG Always a Good Time
I love how Artisan works and besides the fact that I don’t have the font of the PS version on my computer or the Mercy Ships Logo to use they look pretty much the same 🙂
