Creation of Text in PS6

To clarify, I'm not asking how to make a text font because I imagine that would be an extensive headache.

To the point, I'm trying to create an image for my website using this as a base:

And putting over some text in the Waffle House style (with ths specific phrase being "How May We Serve You?").

I was wondering if creating the illusion of this text were possible? I'm certain it has something to do with the rectangular marquee and fill/color option, but I'm not sure how to implement that.

And on a side note, are there any fonts that would match the logo font?


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?

Full Icon Tutorial for PSP 7

Behind the cut is a full tutorial for PSP 7. It may work for PSP 8, and maybe even Photoshop. It has exclusion blend modes, overlay modes, borders, low opacities, and tinting.

This is my first tutorial, so if anything needs to be cleared up, please let me know!

screencapping using WMP

Heya, i was following the tutorial directions given here for copying frame by frame, but when i paste in PS the image gets all fucked up (can i swear in here?), not letting me manipulate it, pasting over previous layers and generally taunting me with its uncooperative attitude.

Im doing this using WMP, ripping from a dvd, can anyone who does this lend a hand? (or tell me how they do it)

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!


How do you make the color go throught the letters like in this icon?

I use PS7 and Image Ready.

Also, I have a question about the lasso command. If you want only a section of a pic and want to move it to another layer to add a template what do you do? Someone just recently did this but I didn't understand.

I'm sorry if I have asked a question already asked. I couldn't find anything for the color one though.

transparency in png images

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!
