Hello everyone - I'm new, and have been sifting through the tutorials page, yet I've still come up with a question. What is that pixel font that everyone seems to be using, and where can I get it? I'm jealous, given that my fonts dont look nearly as good. Does anyone have any particular fonts they use on their icons that come out well? Where can I get them? Any feedback would be wonderful.. thank you so much!
A question for PS7. I was wondering how people get so close up in pictures. Like in icon challenges they'll post a screencap and I'll crop it normally and it'll be somewhat far away if it's a far away picture, but somehow some people manage to get close up and still leave extra room for words and such. Does anyone know how you do that? Is there any sort of 'zoom' type tool you can use?
Hallo! I'm rather new at the whole icon-making business, so please be gentle.
I've been poking around in the community's memories, but I haven't found exactly what I needed so I decided to ask:
I'm using PSP6, and the only brushes & borders I can find are .abr files for PSP7 and up. Can anyone help me find some good brushes that will work with PSP6? It would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
Does anyone know what setting will work for making transparency with .png images? I had it set to a point where it seemed as though it would work, then when I uploaded the icon the parts that were supposed to be transparent were a very light gray. And I know I could do it with a .gif, but sometimes it just won't work for me because it will completely sacrifice my image quality due to less colors. If anybody could help, I would very much appreciate it!
