Total Newbie.

Okay guys I really need some help. I know nothing about this so bare with me-I'm teaching myself.

My Adobe Photoshop 7.0 won't allow me to open it because it says: "Could not initialize Photoshop because the scratch disks are full." I haven't even used it yet. What does this mean and how can I fix it?

New Layout!

Hey, gang.

After some recent comments we've gotten from you all, grass_stained and I agreed that a change of layout, to include a links list and easy page navigation features, was in order.

And so, the layout has been changed. We think that this will make it easier to navigate, and hopefully it looks nice as well.

If you have any questions, comments, or suggestions, we're all ears. After all, group participation is what makes LiveJournal communities work.

Thanks for your time. :)

animation in mini-movies

ok, I looked through the memories, but I'm having trouble understanding them.

Here's my dilemma:
I really want to make a mini-movie icon, but the only way I know how to do that is by pasting an image over and over, and it ends up looking...umm, fake, i guess is the right word? I've seen people's icons that look like really animated, like right off the movie screen, and was wondering how to do that. I'm osrry if this doesn't make sense, it's hard to explain. Here's an example...


I know it's not animation, but it's my only example. It just looks like frame by frame. If I did animation it would still look like that. Then there are people's who have them like this:


Hopefully that's explained well...any help is appreciated!

^^ her background

the sideways lines, is that a brush? I use PSP8 and i was wondering if anyone knows where to find that (if its a brush). And also, if anyone can decipher any effects she used in it, that'd be great b/c I feel like ive reached a creative plateau with PSP8 and THAT SHOULDNT HAPPEN! heh. Anyways THANKS!

Hey, I was wondering:
I know it's nitpicky of me, but I can't stand that crispness at the bottom of my icon. Does anyone know how I could avoid that? I'm using Photoshop, and I've tried both the stroke effect I can access with the little (f) at the bottom of the layers window, and I've done the whole.. 'expanding a second layer and filling it with the outline colour desired' thing. Any suggestions?

Thanks muchly.
