Trouble saving animated icon

Okay, I have a pretty good icon animated icon and I'm having trouble saving. I'm using Imageready 3.0 and I click on 'Save optomized as' and the only formats that it will let me save with is 'Images Only *.png', 'HTML only *.html', 'HTML and Images *.HTML'. Am I doing something wrong or is some weird problem that no one understands?

Text Problems in P7

I'm trying to put text on an icon in Adobe Photoshop 7, but nothing shows up. Like it's see through, but I checked EVERYTHING I know of, and nothing works. It's not the Opacity or Resolution, those are fine. I just don't understand what the problem is, and I'm getting really frustrated. Please help!

I have a question that I can't quite figure out the answer to on my own.

There is an icon here that seems overlaid with a really pretty pinkish colour. I can't seem to replicate that effect, even when I use the 'screen' blending option. Does anyone know how I could achieve that look? Thanks, guys.

EDIT: Meh. I forgot to mention I use PSP7, which may or may not have been evident, considering I x-posted to a PSP community. Oops. :D

Help again, please.
I want to make icons with outlined fonts. I use PSP 8 and Ulead Gif Animator 5. But now matter what I do, the fonts looks a bit blurry after I save the pic (not only the outlined fonts, the others, too). I tried saving it in different formats. No matter if I use neon or already outlined fonts. So my fonts look like this:

Titel oder Beschreibung

but I want them to look like this

Titel oder Beschreibung

Anyone know what I do wrong?

Make a brush? "make" I say

Ok I've read up on how to install brushes and use them etc. I've looked closely at all the tutorials that I thought could help me.....Creating brushes, etc. Even found one that said I can make them on PS Elements, which is what I have. But I didn't find anything on how to actually "make" one. As in from the beginning.........new file, blah, blah blah. I need specifics. ~laughs~ For instance........Can you use a screen cap to make a brush? Can you make them in other sizes besides 100 x100? Does anyone have a step by step program.....er....tutorial on how to do this? I need some hand holding please.

BTW, I recommend that everyone look through the archived tutorials. I learned some really cool stuff and saved some tuts in my favorite places so I could go right to them.

ok, so i was doing ok with text with the spacing and everything. and then, i don't know what setting i changed [if i ever did. maybe in my sleep..] but now the spacing between the lines of text is really big. i originally thought that was called leading but it's still huge when i set leading to 0. then i thought it was kerning [though i thought that was between the letters] but the big space doesnt go away when i set kerning to 0.
how do i fix this

i use psp8
