My shot at a GIMP tutorial..

I use GIMP cause I'm too cheap to buy Photo Shop or Paintshop Pro.. I've noticed that people hardly make any tutorials for GIMP, so I decided to help remedy that.. Let me know what you guys think.. I also think that you can roughly use this for PS and PSP..

The tutorial has a lot of pictures, which might be too big.. I'm not quite sure.. Anyhoo, I made this icon:

photoshop problemo.

hello there =)

welp, i am using a trail version of photoshop v.8, and everytime i open it up, all the brushes/gradients i uploaded are gone and my color settings are messed up. It's like the whole program resets when i exit it. So then i re-upload everything, only to have it "deleted" from the program when i open it up again. It just recently started doing it too. And it is a hassle to have too reload everything since i am a brush/gradient horrrr and need millions of them. =) i thought about just leaving photoshop open until my trial version is over (23 more days) but figured that was a bad idea since i will most likely have to restart the computer a few times before then. ;D

any help or suggestions is extremely appreiciated and i will hug you over and over again if you can give my any info to how i can fix my problemo.

Gradients

When you find new gradients that you want to use (like we do with custom brushes and textures, etc) WHERE do you put the gradients so they show up in the pull down menu? I've spent an HOUR looking through the FAQ, but i didn't see where it was listed as an FAQ.

Thanks

Help help help

I've read through a lot of the memories within the community like it says to do if you're searching for help on specific ideas, but I just got the PSP8 version thing, and I'm trying to make an icon. At the moment I have a layer window that reads like this:

-Vector 3
-Raster 2
-Vector 2
-Raster 1
-Vector 1
-Background

Alright, I understand that Vectors 1-3 are the text that I applied to each Raster. There are three 100 x 100 images, (the background, raster 1 and raster 2). And they are in an order that coincides with my text. My question is, how do I make the icon switch to the next raster, and then have the text (the vectors), appear on top of the raster?

Did that make sense? What I mean is, in creating an icon like this:



How do you get, the icon to switch to the next raster, and then have the text appear on top of it before it moves to the next image or next...part of the icon? Sorry if that was confusing, it confusified me too. Any help would be appreciated, I'm new at this, but I seem to be getting a hang of it, I just don't know how to apply text and image effects.

Gah.

I seem to have some trouble with making some icons in ImageReady. I know how to use the animation and everything but when it comes to opening or saving it gives me this message:
"Could not complete this operation because an assertion has failed."

I never knew a single sentece could confuse me so much. Help?

Help?

I've downloaded about 50 different pixelated fonts and bitmap fonts and tried to use them on my icons but they always seem too large and when I use size 8 the letters kind of get all smushed up and are completely unreadble. All I want is to be able to use a small font like the one in this icon:

(credit to _captivated)


Can anyone help me out on this and tell me what I'm doing wrong?
I've read somewhere something about "strokes" and I opened up my PSP8 and found something called a "Brush Strokes" but I don't understand it at all. So that's my problem summarized. I'd appreciate greatly any help :)
