image ready mini movies

Hi everyone. Im trying to learn how to make mini movie icons in image ready because I was told the quality can be made better in that as opposed to Animation shop.

My problem is I cannot figure out how to drag the movie animation onto the base icon. Can someone show me a tutorial somewhere on how to make them in image ready? I looked in the memories and didnt seen any complete tutorial type things. ^^ Thankyou!!

Font ID Needed

I have been trying to find this certain font for ages. I can't remember the username for the font group (I am pretty sure there was one anyways). I have only seen it on webpages, so I took screenshots and modified the images. Links to the original sites are given =)

On to the fonts!

From Last Requiem, a Fanlisting to CastleVania's Music.

From Fire Senshi's Realm, a shrine dedicated to Hino Rei/Sailor Mars from Sailor Moon.

Thanks everyone, even if you can point me in the right direction for this :)

Icons with only Photoshop?

I, unfortunately, haven't been able to purchase a copy of PSP 8. Any edition of PSP, actually. I was wondering if there was any way to make good icons using only Adobe Photoshop? (I have Photoshop 6.0). If anyone has any ideas, I'd love to hear them, because I have some good ideas for icons, and a few semi-decent ones that would be shareable with a better program, or more secrets.

quick question....

I looked in the memories section and i didnt really find the question answered....

I've been having problems with my PSP 8 and adding text. Everytime I add text, I specify a color, but it comes out white. I finally messed around and got it to outline the text in the desired color. I really want it to be filled in. The other problem is finding the right font. In this icon (i made it to see if it would work...the base is by enora), i want the word "king" to stay in that font, but i want the text filled in. Also, I asked somewhat what the general font used was and I was told to download 04b_03. I downloaded it and inserted it, but it looks bad, as you can see in the icon.

OK so recap of my questions:
1) How can I make it so they text is filled in instead of blank?
2) How can I use the 04b_03 font and make it look like it does in other icons (like this one by narcissusblack )

any help would be appreciated. I can screencap my PSP 8 if you want. Just let me know. I'm slow at making icons, but i just dont know a lot about the program!

Basic Icon Tutorial (PS7)

I just did a very basic icon tutorial. It is also extremely image intensive, so dial up users beware. I hope that that helps some people.

I am starting out with this base:

The final product should look like so:

If you have any questions, do not hesitate to ask. Also, any comments on the tutorial would be helpful so that I know how to make further tutorials clearer.

Screen capping with PSP8 and WMP

Ok I know this post is in the memories but I just can't seem to get it to work. I'm using PSP8 and WMP (the version that comes with Windows XP) and i can't take Screen captures, everytime i do, the image moves with the picture or turns black. Which is a problem other people seem to have, except they solve it by lowering the video acceleration - i've tried that, set it to low, applied it and then started playing the dvd, then paused the dvd and captured, but once its in PSP it moves. What am I doing wrong?
