First of all you need think of creative ideas to launch a forum. You must have good knowledge of Photoshop, Dreamweaver. HTML5 etc, Giving attractive names to user according to their expertise, giving them award are also nice ways to keep them engage with forum.

I agree with this, basically you need to know first how to use tools of a graphic designer and also establishing the forum itself. I'm not an expert but I use Adobe Photoshop for creating and enhancing images and graphics so as far as I'm concern researching the matter first will be a big advantages.

Graphic design is a creative process, one most often involving a client and a designer.Common uses of graphic design include identity (logos and branding), publications (magazines, newspapers and books), advertisements and product packaging.

You should have ideas on designing softwares. You should know how photoshop, dreamweaver, coral draw etc. works. It will be better if you also have designing skills. If you do graphic designing, you can sell your designs as well.

Learn Photoshop, Dreamweaver,... Research the related topics to learn the design theory; and design a lot and give them to others commenting to gain the common sense about it. And you can be graphic designer :)

First of all, you should start by creating a simple forum out of sites that allow you to do so. The next step is learning how to use either Photoshop if you want to buy it or the free version GIMP, it's not really that hard to learn how to do this and that, and you can easily start by watching some YouTube videos with the basics.

Graphic Designing means that you need to have the skill of being able to communicate to other people, visually. You need to be creative when it comes to designing and choosing perfect images that would represent best what you're thinking or what your idea is all about. You can learn these through self direct studying and does not require to go to school and choose a course. You just have to know the basics of graphic designing which can be learned through online. There are a lot of tutorials that can be found and you can start immediately you graphic designing career.

I am a Graphic artist and I use "Adobe Photoshop" CC and CS6 version. Let me tell you being a Graphic designer is not an easy thing to do, you have to learn all the tools and techniques in Photoshop to create a design that makes realistic and creative. You have to be careful about the combination of colors, like merging and contrasting. You have to use your imagination to make a beautiful photo manipulation.

Just keep on searching for the sites that make an online tutorial like "Youtube" and there's a lot to offer to make you a good Graphic artist.

Think out of the box, practice makes perfect and you need to know what you want to do. Concept is what you need to make a good graphic design.it must be simple but outstanding.Originality and Uniqueness is always a tool to create a good design. Lastly choosing the right color combination makes it exceptional.
Use Adobe illustrator+wacom>:)
