[editline]16th June 2011[/editline] oh my fuck american apparel it is a brand that i love so much i just love american apparel if you dont use american apparel you arent as good as someone who uses american apparel[/QUOTE] American Apparel is wonderful clothing for the price. If I'm spending $20 on some shirt I'd rather it be a, soft, nice fabric, made in the US and nicely fitting over some boxy fitting, inflexible and unfitting standard run of the mill shirt with some giant brand name plastered across the front in obnoxious lettering.
OP, as long as there is a buying audience, keep selling, if you make a product for 3 bucks that they're selling for 200+, you could be looking at some good profit.
[QUOTE=kabookie;30506902]I'm pretty sure the Tee you found isn't an american apparel one, it looks like it was put through a shredding machine. Like previously stated the point of this psd is ease of use, it's not something super secret that nobody else can do. And if you're going to prove a point at least put some effort into it.[/QUOTE] Which is why I said it had like fifty thousand snakes in it. Not implying it is some super secret either, never been my point. Which is what I said I would do on Sunday, didn't I now?
Oh shit guys something digital on the internet isn't free!!

[QUOTE=Ajacks;30504747]Bought a copy for myself, To all of you saying "blah blah I could do this in just a few minutes", well paying $3, supporting forum talent, helping out a friend and saving some of my own time is well worth $3 to me. This reminded me I have a line of Zombie shirts I want to get designed and printed and I'd only ever print on American Apparel, in fact I only wear AA printed T's so this is spot on. Thanks for the time saver![/QUOTE] nope it's something that saves barely 5 mintues of time, even a novice can download a high res shirt photo, put an image on top of it and change the blending options and if you've done any more than that then you wasted time because that's all i do for my shirt mockups [img]http://dl.dropbox.com/u/1482927/nicholarse.png[/img] and thats 10 second work not to mention i give out high resolution copies of my own posters, stuff i spend a lot more than 5 minutes on, for free. to anybody who asks. this thread is a disgrace, i don't care how you justify it. it's charging for something anyone can do in a very small amount of time and has very little effort required to do it. shame on you for asking for money for it, i don't care if we're supporting in house talent.
The way I see it, is that anyone who buys these templates in the first place is as stupid as the server owners who pay 200€ and up for Gmod RP gamemodes.
[QUOTE=DOG-GY;30516475]it is a blank tshirt[/QUOTE] You buy printed shirts.
[QUOTE=Ajacks;30519012]You buy printed shirts.[/QUOTE] my point is that a brand name for a blank tshirt doesn't matter when you're doing a mockup. just grab something off google and done bragging that your template is a certain brand is silly
it's dumb too, i don't even live in america why would an american apparel mockup even matter to me
Expecting someone to buy it then upload it to filesmelt or something
[QUOTE=DOG-GY;30519760]my point is that a brand name for a blank tshirt doesn't matter when you're doing a mockup. just grab something off google and done bragging that your template is a certain brand is silly[/QUOTE] He's not bragging, he just has it setup with all the available American apparel colors. Also most often than not, a high quality printed tshirt is going to be on an american apparel blank, they beat the pants of fruit of the loom that's for sure.

This one is 1350 by 1682. You didn't even do the same thing that this offers. Does your shirt design have over 40 preset colors that you can change the shirt to at the push of a button? Does it have a highlight layer, and two shadow layers? This thing is extremely easy to use, and I'm sure it would take a couple hours to make a mockup this high quality. And similar things run for at the very least, ten times this price. also this is ten seconds work [IMG]http://i51.tinypic.com/2me1rlu.png[/IMG]
gotta say that Rusty's looks more presentable tho
Yeah if I wanted to advertise my design I wouldn't want it to look like it's been dragged through a sewer

[editline]18th June 2011[/editline] and a real shirt's shadows and shit aren't nearly as intense as the one's in his mockup. they're so intense it looks like someone's been fucking around with the levels [editline]18th June 2011[/editline] and plus nobody wants to see how a shirt looks printed crumpled up and on the floor, despite what some people seem to think you wanna see how it looks WHILE IT'S BEING WORN, since that's when everybody else is gonna see your shirt. [editline]18th June 2011[/editline] if that mockup took him a few hours than my god seriously my god a few clicks and you get the same result honestly.
those just look like they have poor perspective, because both of the shirt models you used are rounded, and the one provided is flat. I can understand that you don't like this and you think that it's shit, but not everyone wants to do that work in photoshop, which is why mockups like this exist. and it's way cheaper.
Blending options reduce image quality. I don't understand why that's such a hard concept for you to understand rusty. If you ventured out of these forums every once in a while into a real professional graphic environment you would realize that not everything is oh so easy in photoshop. I need a red shirt, so let's magically color balance it to red and hope the printing company has that exact color... I need my shirt to be a little larger, so maybe I'll just stretch it with photoshop and hope they can custom print me special sizes... Are you that retarded?

And if you can do it fine, but some people can't and this is why that's here. Welcome to the real world, it's tough outside of facepunch, trust me. Also, I'm sorry you spend 10 seconds on shirt mockups. HEY GUYS RUSTY ONLY SPENDS 10 SECONDS IT MUST BE THE EPITOME OF ARTISTIC TIMING.

If I'm surfing around on the internet for t-shirts, as long as it's big enough to see, I'm really not going to scrutinize image quality. The mockup's purpose is to show you what your shirt is going to look like. It's not really a peice of art, more of an advertisement tool. also flaming rusty is a bad idea, I heard he has friends that are moderators

I couldn't tell you how many times I've bought a shirt and received something almost entirely different because of a poor mockup. I didn't come here to take sides I came here to offer help to people who want it. I don't care about moderators or sides or friends or whatever, trust me. [editline]17th June 2011[/editline] Also, on a somewhat different note, I'm going to release a couple of different free mockups of a billboard, a man holding a AA sized poster, a brick wall graffitti-esque thing and a few others. and yes for free :sax:

It's 2000x2000 and much more presentable than yours as it reflects somebody actually wearing the shirt which is what you want to see. If given a choice between a shirt crumpled on the ground and one on a person, which do you think they'd rather look at for an accurate representation of a shirt? And how do layer blending options reduce image quality? They don't at all. Basically you spent heaps of time on yours, that doesn't justify anything since the same or better result can be done in a much smaller time. I am also very close to closing this thread because it's utterly useless and a ripoff. Unless of course it was free, in which case awesome! Thanks for your contribution! Beggers can't be choosers. But since it's not, it's an atrocious thing to do and I can foresee myself closing this thread pretty soon. I personally believe you should take this elsewhere where people are gullible enough to buy this and be thankful for it. I don't even understand how you can't feel ashamed of yourself for trying to sell something that clearly shouldn't be worth any money.

Still in Sweden, just dropping by. [QUOTE=Trogdon;30521667]Your shirt is 507 by 479 pixels. This one is 1350 by 1682. You didn't even do the same thing that this offers.

Turn those off and you notice they actually just add in shadows. Shadows is the lack of light and vica versa. His highlight layer doesn't add lights, it just adds more shadows making the unshadowed areas look brighter. Why would it take hours? I could see one hour being fit in order to make all the colours, but, hours? I think that ten second work of yours look worse because it has a fuckton of grungy shadows and folds on it. If I wanted to see a mockup I would want to see what it looked like when I wore it, not when I threw it violently at the floor and boosted contrasts to max. And before you mention it, the quick shit I did is no better regarding that. [QUOTE=kabookie;30524058]Blending options reduce image quality.

But a lot is oh so easy in Photoshop. The hardest thing is coming up with a good idea and a good design, not so much making it. But it always depends on just what you're going to make. I don't think he said anything about making the shirt colour the correct colour with just colour balance. He said that was there in order to adjust the colours of the artwork to fit in with the scene. When did he ever say one would stretch the image? Are you retarded? It's not thougher out there than you make it. There is A) Capitalists that makes stuff and puts copyright all over the shit and sells it no matter what the fuck it is. And there is B) Everyone else that makes stuff and distributes it for free becasue they hate how people sell every fucking little thing and want to help them instead.

[QUOTE=kabookie;30491868]I've created a High resolution T-shirt mockup for Photoshop. Unlike other mockups you aren't limited to colors or size restrictions, you can display your art on a tee that actually looks printed and well done. It's a high quality PSD file containing: [b] • American Apparel Tee layout. • Multicolor shirt's available in all printing colors. • Shadow & Highlight layers so your art actually looks printed. • 300DPI at 7x5 Inches. [/b] [IMG]http://filesmelt.com/dl/teemockup.png[/IMG] This file is available here: [url]http://tinypay.me/~7c6eMUQ[/url] Most, if not all other mockups range from $30~$500USD. This file is created with intentions of helping artists display their work at a more professional level, for a fraction of the price; or to help companies with proof issues regarding clients, helping them visualize a better finished product. If you're a cheapskate and want to try before you buy, you can pay with a tweet too for a sample psd.
