Hello, hello all. It's me again - the seemingly hopeless icon-attempter extraordinaire. I just sifted through and tested out at least four tutorials this morning.. and yet SOMETHING ISNT RIGHT. Either the buttons on MY version of photoshop arent in the same place, or nothing works, or I can't figure out how to do anything besides cut down the bases that I want and fiddle with the brightness contrast hue saturation and all that jazz. The two programs I have on my computer are:

Adobe Photoshop Elements 2.0


Adobe Photoshop 5.0 Limited Edition

I don't know if anyone has either of these programs and has been seemingly successful in icon making, but I'm getting really frustrated and depressed that mine are so boring. If anyone would be interested in possibly giving me a brief coaching.. that'd be wonderful. I'd be so grateful. Sorry for complaining.. those of who you offer your helping hands on this journal have really saved my life ^^;

Does anyone out there know how you can make brushes made with Photoshop work in Paint Shop Pro???

Most people tell me just to change the *.ABR extension to *.JBR but that only works sometimes.....

Is there another way to do this???

If someone out there knows please let me know or if someone could point me in the right direction to figure this out that would be great.

Thanx in advance.

Layer properties

Whenever I try to use a layer property, such as exclusion or overlay, it doesn't work. The only property that works is soft light. How can I get all of the properties to work? I've tried merging all the layers, and promoting the background...thanks

Edit: Sorry, I forgot to say I'm using PSP8
