Although I'm usually not interested in graphic design, I currently have a question about how to accomplish a certain effect in Photoshop.

I understand that photo.se is about "Photography and Photographic Editing" - are questions that aren't about editing an photo (as in, you took the photo with a camera) but about editing something created purely in Photoshop appropriate here?

Probably not; it's not photography. That's not to say that there aren't people that can answer that question, but this is a photography site, not a graphic arts one. The better question might be to ask is should this site expand to encompass visual arts as a whole? After all, videography questions are, technically, not photographic questions either, though they are far closer than software only options.

  • I'd tend to agree; the design aspects of photoshop go way beyond what's used for photo editing.

    I would have to agree with this. Photoshop questions are okay as long as they relate to photo manipulation. I would love to see a site on the graphic arts, though! Commit: area51.stackexchange.com/proposals/1924/graphic-design Aug 14, 2010 at 4:34
