Does anyone know where I can find those cool "swishy" brushes? I've been searching all over, but I can't seem to find any.

Thank you so much!!

1.I've been trying to make an outline for my text in my icons, and i've asked like a million people and they've all told me the same thing. Layer->Layer Styles-> Style Settings.

But I keep on doing it, but for me, the Style Setting option is greyed out, like not available. I don't get it. I'm using Photoshop Elements. All I want is a simple outline around my text and I can't get it. Is there something that i'm doing wrong that makes this not show up? Can someone help me please?

Also, I'm attempting to make screen caps from a video that's only available in .ram format which the evil Real player format that doesn't allow you to just do the simple and easy print screen copy thing. Does anyone know how I can get around that? Like how to possibly change the format or use a special program to do this?

thankx a lot!

Text Size in Photoshop 7

I figured out why my text wasn't showing up. It was because of the font size which is all screwy. It was set *way* too small to be seen. For some reason, the font is in terms of "pt", whatever that means. I think it's supposed to be in terms of pixels though. So, I have to put it up all the way to it's limit which is 1296 pt to even be able to see a bitmap font. I can't even see my script fonts because 1296 pt is only like 7 pixels. Does anyone know how to change the settings to get it in terms of pixels? I would seriously appreciate it. I have a picture behind the cut to show you what I'm talking about a little better.

What text effect IS that??

I love this place. I think this is an awesome place to get icon help. I actually read the tutorials here long before I got an LJ.

Enough of my blabber. I know this one hasn't been asked yet; I've checked the memories and everything, and I couldn't find this anywhere. I was just wondering how you get this effect with the text on this icon:

I don't know who this icon belongs to. I'm so very sorry! My friend found it on someone's LJ, and she sent it to me because she thought it looked cool. So please don't kill me if I'm not giving appropriate credit, because I don't know who to give credit to!

Well anyway, I'm referring to the wavy effect thing going on with the main text. It goes from white to some wavy black, and then it turns black. I was wondering how you do that.

I use Photoshop 7, Animation Shop 3, and Image Ready. Thank you for your help.
