[per] Curls


I've been wondering for quite awhile how to do an icon like this:

[hnc97's icon] with the text popping over the picture and being transparent. [I don't need help with making a movie icon, though]

How do you do that? I'm also having trouble with transparency..

I'm using PSP 7 and Animation Shop, but I do have PS7 and ImageReady just in case..

Icon and Transparency tutorial (with pictures) for PSP7

I've been meaning to write another tutorial recently, but didn't think anyone cared really, since the response I've gotten has been less than stellar. Anyway, so here's a tutorial on how to make parts of an icon/graphic transparent.

I'm using Paint Shop Pro 7, but I'm sure parts can be used in Photoshop. Maybe later I'll try it there and see what happens. On to the tutorial.

Hey everyone, I'm new to this community even though I have been watching it for a while. I have a question if anyone can help me. I know how to make transparent parts in an icon but I am having trouble with adding things to the icon after make parts transparent (i.e. adding text in a transparent part) if anyone can give me some tips and help me out I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks.

p.s. I am using psp 7 and ps 7 but mostly psp.

Does anyone have any solutions for getting rid of the letterbox in widescreen versions of movies? In the one below I just made the outline big but obviously it looks hideous. I capture the frames using PowerDVD or Quicktime. Any suggestions?

need help

I've been making movie icons from DVDs but I everytime I try and make an icon from an avi movie I can't get my frames. I tried screencapping on wmp but when I try to paste all I get is an empty player window. I tried importing frames with animation shop but I keep getting 186 frames of the same image (I've tried every single option). I tried using virtual dub but it did the same thing. I don't know what else to try. Can anyone help me???
