Making erasers nix the white edges.

hiya, I'm using PS7 for this.

Im using erasers to eat away at the edges, but when i make my own brushes (to use as erasers) tiny little white pieces are left on the rim.
like this:

i figured it was because i hadn't deleted the white background before defining the brush preset, and once I'd done that it got a little better (to what it is now) but doesn't go away completely. Can someone who knows brushes point out how Im screwing up?

Outlining a figure

This is my first time outlining a figure in an icon like this and it really doesn't look good to me... I'm trying to figure out what I did wrong... I used the lasso tool to outline Westly's face and hand, then used a border tool to enlarge the selection and filled it with orange. Anything you think might help is greatly appreciated, because I don't know what I'm doing! Thanks -Ruby

I'm sure this has been posted before, but how do you screencap WMVs? It used to work when I pressed the print screen button, but I upgraded my computer to XP and it no longer works that way. Help?

PS7 freezing up...

I posted this on my LJ yesterday and tried all the suggestions I was given. Hopefully someone here may know how to fix it.

When PS7 first opens and the thing that says "Adobe Photoshop blah blah" comes up, it goes through everything it's doing (Loading Brushes, Reading Fonts, Something with TWAIN, etc.). When mine loads it freezes up when it gets to "Reading Brushes".

I've tried taking all my brushes off my computer and putting them on CD, and reinstalling PS7. Has this ever happened to anyone else? And/or does anyone have any idea how to fix it?

PS 7

I have just switched from PS Elements to PS7. I have two questions:

1) How do I get all my brushed from Elements into PS7? I've transferred them into the proper file, but I don't want to have to go and manually load each one seperately. Is there some other way to do it?
2) A while back, someone had mentioned applying blinds to an icon. By this I think she meant applying very fine lines or grid. How does one do this?
