How to make mini-movie icons

I'm new. I just finished making this tutorial on how to make mini-movie icons and someone suggested that I post it here. I'm sure there have probably already been tutorials on this topic, but I hope it's OK that I post it here. :-)
The tutorial will teach you how to make this icon (from The Butterfly Effect):

I looked through the memories, but couldn't find anything on using stock pictures. I've just recently learned what a stock picture is, but I can't figure out what exactly to do with them. Any tutorials or tips would be greatly appreciated. I'm using Photoshop 7 if that helps any.

Help ;-;

brush credits question

Hi =)
Lately I've started using brushes on my icons, but I've gotten my brushes from several different people. And once I've loaded them into Photoshop, I can't tell who's brushes are who's. So I was wondering if there is a way of knowing which brushes are which so I can credit the maker of the brushes in my icon posts, rather than just crediting the brush maker in my user info.
Thanks =)

Need help with mini movies in Image Ready and Photoshop

I've been looking through the memories and most of the tutorials were for Animation Shop. I did read some of the general Image Ready ones, but I just got myself completely confused. Could someone please direct me to a tutorial to make a mini movie icon using Image Ready?
I made a bunch of caps and I have a base, but have no idea how to animate my caps and put them into the base.

I've never done animation before, so any help/advice/suggestions would be really appreciated. Thank you!
