anime icons

Does anyone have any tips or hints for using anime/animation pictures in icons? How to make the colors really crisp, the picture clear, and the lines smooth and nice? I'm not quite sure how I'd go about touching the picture up.
Note: Not animated icons, but pictures from animations/cartoons/anime :)

Remember that static icon I showed you guys awhile back? While upon getting very bored, I decided to do a tutorial on how easy static really is to do...

All right, for this tutorial, we're gonna show you how to do a relatively simple animation, as well as how to transfer animations from Photoshop to ImageReady to begin with. Today I'm going to do television static, an animation to do so easy, I slapped myself upside the head when I found out how to do it. :-D

( Follow the fake LJ-cut back to my icon journal. )

Well, hope that helps! Enjoy. ^_^

(no subject)

Hi there! I know for a fact that someone wrote a tutorial recently on this, but I can't find it. I am trying to find a tutorial on how to make an image-panning icon. I remember that the tutorial used a cap from the Disney movie "Alice in Wonderland." Can someone point me in the right direction? Thanks!

Beginner Photoshop 7.0 Tutorial

Hi =) I wrote a beginner Photoshop tutorial for one of my friends, and I thought I'd let you guys know aswell, though I don't know how much use it will be. It's basically for someone who's never used Photoshop before, or had any (good) experiance with other programs like it.
You can find it at my icon journal tiny_wanderer.

Fading Text

Hello. I've been watching this community and decided to join recently. I was wondering if someone could help. After reading the rules and carefully searching the memories and archives sections, I noticed that my topic was mentioned but was not thouroughly explained enough for me to make much use of. That topic is making text fade into the next line of text on an icon. Unfortunately I was not able to locate an example. If anyone is kind enough to refer a tutorial link to me, make a tutorial for me and others' benefit, or take the time to explain how to do this effect step by step, Id very much appreciate it!

Thank you!

P.S. I use Photoshop 7.0 and Animation Shop 3.

Quick question

I didn't find it in the memories so I thought I'd ask. I downloaded some brushes for PSP8 and I know that to get them in there you use the Import button. Anyway once they're imported in, where do I find them when I want to use them? Sorry to bother you guys with a simple question but I'm clueless.


Wondered if anyone could let me know where I could find some textures for PSP8? I'm particularly looking for grungy textures. I've had a look through the memories and can't seem to find anything - Any help would be great.


Putting an animated GIF on top another animated GIF...

Is there any way one can put an animated GIF on top of another animated GIF? I'm trying to create an icon where there are blinking stars(one animated GIF) as a background and then there is a shooting star (a seperate animated GIF). So it's pretty much like I said: Animated GIF on top of an Animated GIF. Please let me know if this is at all possible and thank you in advance for your time.
