Help... :( Animation in Image Ready

I need help with animation in Image ready. I checked the memories, and I couldn't find anything helpful...

I took at screen-cap of my screen and of Image ready, so you can see where i am. I'm probably doing it all wrong.

Anyway here it is:

Am I on the right track? Am I doing it right?

Quick Question

Not too long ago someone posted a tutorial that featured an icon with Ryan Phillipe and some other actor (cant think of the name) but I cant find it in the memories. Does someone have a link for that tutorial?

Thanks again.

Cropping and resizing in MSPaint.

I don't use Microsoft Paint anymore, but I still know a thing or two about it.
Long story short, this is how to crop and resize in Paint. I don't recommend using Paint at all if you have a better program, but I do know that many people only have paint to work with, so why not tell you how to make your own bases? Here's what we'll end up with:

brush help?

I looked through the memories and I don't think this has been asked before, but I'm sorry if it has.

I use PSP8, and I downloaded an image pack so I could create brushes that had been made in PS7, but they all came in one .jpg file. How do I make them into individual brushes?

Any help would be much appreciated.

I have never really posted a question here, because usually I find answers in the memories, but this time it's different.

I want to know how you get the "polaroid" effect. You know, make a picture look like a polaroid? Here is an excellent example of an icon of mine:


How do you get the polaroid border? I thought it might be a brush, but I cannot find any brushes like that.

ANY help is much appreciated.

Ok, I've read the memories and all the entries on Image Ready, but I cannot figure out how to make an animation.
Can someone please help me with like the Complete Idiot's Guide to ImageReady. I want to know how to create frames and time them accordingly as well as creating different types of animations.
Thanks in advance.

Hello! I just joined this community! ^^ I've been making icons for about three months now, but I finally just got around to joining now.(I'm rather slow on the uptake~ ^^;;)

Anyway, I went through the memories and I couldn't find the answer to my question. Hopefully I'm not repeating a question that's already been answered.

I use Adobe 7.0 and I've been wondering how to make the background to text transparent. I tried experimenting with it earlier today, but I didn't get it quite right. This was the result:

I sized down the original Chibi Usa picture, then moved it over to a new 100x100 picture that was set on transparent with no background color picked. Can anyone help? It'd be greatly appreciated.

I've looked through the memories and I can't see anything on this, so here it goes. Could someone tell me a place where I can download adober photoshop? I know that there is jasc.com, but it only offers a trial version. But does anyone know where I can download the full program, for free? Any help will be appreciated!!

forgive me if this is the wrong place to post this, and feel free to delete this message. i've been looking for some calligraphy type fonts that look decent when used in icons. i've found some that i like, however when i use them at small font sizes, they don't look great. i've mostly been searching through dafont.com. thanks for any suggestions.

need help on putting text on transparent backgrounds

Okay, I'm kind of new to icon-making in general so bear with me if anything I say is kind of stupid. x_X

I have a few questions, actually, and most are unrelated to eachother. So yeah. And I went through the memories as best I could, but I'm still having trouble with a few things. I'm sorry if any of these have already been answered elsewhere.
