How to make a rayed icon

Heres something I made while playing around in Paint Shop Pro 8.



Take your picture and copy it.

Go to ADJUST > SHARPNESS > SHARPEN MORE.

Good.

Now copy the layer.

Go to EFFECTS > ILLUMINATION EFFECTS > SUNBURST.

You can place it anywhere in the four cornors. I chose the bottom left.

Then go back to ADJUST > SHARPNESS > SHARPEN.

The choose your text and ta-da

I havent figured out how to post Icons on here. but its the icon I'm using. Please let me know if this was helpful or not. :)

How can I take that icon, and make it smaller, without taking down the image quality, or removing so many frames the animation looks choppy?

I'm not sure if this has been addressed before, or even what to look under lol, but here's my question.

How do you like, match your text to a color in your icon? I've heard something about people picking in a color in say, a person's dress in the icon, and then making the text match that, but I have no idea how to do it.

Icon tutorial! PS 7

Hi, it's my first time posting here! </br> I decided to write an icon tutorial. Mainly just for myself, cause I always play around with Photoshop so much, </br> without even knowing what exactly I did... I would make an icon and it comes out all nice and pretty and 10 minutes later I don't even remember, </br> what I did to make it look like that! </br> </br> So yeah, </br> I wrote this tutorial! </br> </br> The tutorial is written for Photoshop 7 </br> It expects that you know all the basics like:</br> what a layer is, how you create it, where all the tools are... blend modes and so on! </br></br> Collapse ) </br> </br> ♥ Messa </center> </br> </br> (look pekeana! I was brave and posted it! :P )
