When it comes to designing a wallpaper, there are myriad ways one could use to achieve a desired result. Our WPC designers use techniques they are most confident as well as comfortable with, which is great because it’s always useful to peek into the workflow of our colleagues and learn new design approaches. So share your techniques and tricks which you have learned from your experiences.
The host of this thread is Srimunna aka Sri/munna. I hope you will enjoy sharing your thoughts, experiences about Designing, kindly keep this thread neat, not for chatting purposes (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif) thanks (IMG:style_emoticons/default/wub.gif)
