Faded Line for Photoshop?

I'm wondering about the process of making a line that is faded on either end. I know you can do it in PSP, but I have no clue how to do it in PS7+

From teh_indy:
At this point, I feel I can still add a little more. I created a new layer at the top and drew a 1px line above the small text using a dark color I selected from the image. I then used the eraser tool with these settings: Hardness: 0; Step: 10; Density: 100; Thickness: 100; Opacity: 100. I set the size to around 30 and just clicked once or twice on either side of the line to give it the faded appearance.

That is the pic teh_indy posted as to what it looked like in PSP.

I tried to duplicate it in PS7+, but didn't see any of the settings described (hardness, step, density, thickness) except for opacity. So is there a way to find these setting somewhere in PS7+?

Panning icons - Image Ready

Hey, everyone. I hope this isn't a too-repeated question, but I haven't been able to find a good tutorial for this. I want to make a panning icon like the one I'm posting with (by roniabirk) and I need a tutorial like this that was posted in the community, only I use Image Ready and Photoshop. I hardly ever use Image Ready, so I'm not very familiar with it. I'm sure if I was, I might be able to use that tutorial as a guide in Image Ready, but the program quite confuses me... Anyways, I don't think there is a tutorial like I'm looking for - I searched in the "Image Ready" category of the memories, but it was most of fading animations and mini movies. Thank you.

Choosing a color from your icon...

Okay, I'm sure this has come up, but I've searched and searched and can't find it in the tutorials.

In some of the tutorials I have seen, they say to pick a color from your icon to use for brushes, text, etc. How do you find the specific color in photoshop?

I use Photoshop 7, and whenever I try to crop something, if the cropping tool is too close to the side of the picture, then it will expand so that it includes all of the area up to the side of the picture. It's hard to explain, but if I'm trying to crop something and I want to crop, say, three pixels away from the side of the picture, I can't do that because the tool automatically expands to include those unwanted pixels. Hopefully you can understand what I'm trying to say. I checked the memories to see if this question had been asked, and I didn't see anything like it.
