>What literature should I read to get into graphic design?
The sidebar on the /gd/ wiki has plenty of book reccomendations.
>What programs do I need to get started?
>Which program is the best for X?
It's usually subjective if you pick a program in each of the right categories above. Use vector programs if your making a logo/icon/illustraton, use bitmap programs if you're messing with a photo or stock image. Gimp, Inkskape, and Blender are free alternatives and have the same function as the paid programs but the paid programs tend to be used more in a professional enviroment.

My marriage is at stake here.Long story short, I dropped out after failing four semesters consecutively. I couldn't drop the truthbomb on my folks so lied to them. Kept them under the illusion that I am studying engineering at the university. Fast forward three years when I was supposed to graduate I started doing back-office jobs on the basis of my high-school certificate and basic computer literacy. But now everyone assumes I am an engineer. Two years later in November 2019 I get married to a charming girl. She doesn't know about my lies either. In fact lying about my salary played a part to lure her. I am certain she agreed to marry me only because I am supposed to have a decent education and job. All this was possible because I work and live in a different city where as my wife and parents live in our hometown. I visit them on the weekends. But now after having spent about 3 months together she has started to question things. Finally last month she found out that my salary is nowhere near what I have been telling everyone. She cried and said that it's difficult for her to trust me now onward. Now she wants to see my paycheck and marksheets. The wheels are coming off. I don't want to lose her lads.
Equipment I have on hand a are Computer and Brother DCP-T510W printer. Pic is someone's marksheet from my university I found on the internet. I have to make one exactly like this.

I decided to take a crack at it, and while I was able to make some emotes that looked fine, I absolutely for the fucking life of me cannot figure out how to get them to be so small without completely losing all discernable detail. What are the trade secrets of using Photoshop to miniaturize images to tiny sizes while keeping them recognizable? On Twitch, emotes have to be uploaded in 112x112, 56x56 and 28x28. Maybe I was an idiot to work in 112x112 and just resize that? This guy wants his emotes based on actual images of people, so I can't really work around the issue of resizing stuff. Don't laugh at me, but the only thing I know how to do other than free transform is resizing the image (CTRL+ALT+I) and using the bicubic sharper resampling option. The images were so damaged by the resizing that I had to go in and manually paint over them to try and fake some of the detail.
I'm ASSUMING what happens when a pro makes these icons is that images are converted to a vector format or are heavily edited at their target sizes, maybe both. Even when you take just a picture of someone's face and scale it down that much, it essentially becomes pixel art like old school emoticons. Is the answer to just draw it manually at 28x28 or is there some way retain the detail?No titleKunstrichtige SchreibartNo titleWhat is the best way to get into CAD and solidworksNo titleWhat are some of the best Brand Guidelines you have come across?
