billowing out to somewhere

(PS 7) Well, this is unusual...

Not precisely an icon-making question, but it did happen while I was making icons, though I still don't know what happened. Now whatever I select on the color bar changes the background color rather than the foreground color, unless I click on the foreground box and select the color I want from there. Most of the time I don't mind, but it's annoying when I just want to select black or white. Photoshop Help is no help, and I already checked the community memories.

So, anyone know how to change it back? :D

Icons from cartoons

This isn't a question about making animated icons, but I was wondering if anyone has any good tips for making an icon out of a cartoon picture? For example, I wanted to use some caps from Alice in Wonderland to make icons, but I'm really used to working with photos. Cartoons seem to be really hard to do some effects on. And plain, I don't think it looks very good. Does anyone have any helpful hints? Thank you!
