I need a backdrop of a pitted brick wall with a barred windoe. It's for a prison scene.

Can't you just google 'brick wall' or 'brick wall with barred window'?

Heaven forbid you go out and actually try and find a brick wall yourself. If you were really serious about this I'm pretty sure you could muster the dedication to go out into the world, find a suitable wall and get some pics or at least take some photos of walls and railings and cobble something together in Photoshop.

Two things. Number one: I don't live near any prisons. Number two: I already did google it and nothing suitable came up.

Nobody said you did live near a prison. If you don't live near any brick walls though you have my deepest sympathies and you should perhaps be concentrating more on your standard of living than this.

Seriously, what's so hard about going out, taking a picture of a wall and then getting a picture of some railings or bars yourself or from the internet if it's too unbearable to scout around for suitable locations and elements? You don't seem to be putting in any effort other than googling for images, why should anyone go out of their way to help when you're putting in the absolute minimum effort yourself?

That's not called being "Harsh" thats called telling someone to get of their back and go and do something everyone else could do.

Google for "The Gimp" - it's like photoshop but free. If you find what you're looking for then you're all set. If you stumble upon anything else then consider it a lesson in biology and think of it as a positive life-experience. Either way fun can be had by all.
