la liberté

(no subject)

Just a little question.

I'm a fairly advanced PSP user, and an intermediate PS7 user. I've been spending a lot of time using PS7 lately so I'm learning some fun stuff with it. However, one tiny thing has been bugging me and interrupting my sleep lately:
How can you make transparent bits in PS7? I made an icon where I wanted some parts of it to be transparent, and I made the icon all the way to where all I had to do was make the transparency and save it. But then I could not figure out at all where I could make a transparency in PS7. Eventually I just got really frustrated, saved it as a .gif, and opened it in PSP to make the transparent parts. I don't want to have to go through all that trouble anymore.

This seems like something that should be really basic, but I just can not figure it out.

Help is greatly appreciated! :)

How do you install gradients into PSP 8? I did find out how but have since forgotten where I found the piece of information.

Also how to you make Photoshop gradients compatible with PSP 8?

Thanks in advance. ^_^

dingbat brushes

yes another question from me but hey! if you don't ask you'll never learn.

Anyhoo. Are you allowed to make brushes out of dingbat fonts found on What I mean is, would I need to seek permission to do so?

Okieday, I'm a newbie, so don't be too harsh, please. I've had Adobe Photoshop 8.cs for about a week and have been playing around with it, making practice icons, and I love the program. It is, however a lot more complex than what I'm used to (Picture It! Express). I was playing around with the "Inner Glow"...thingie, and somehow, the gradient went from a corner-to-corner gradient to a sort of sunburst. I would like to get it back to the diagonal gradient, but have no clue as to how I go about doing so. Someone, please help me T.T

Brushes Problem

Well, im new. Hi :)

I've been using PSP7 for a while, but recently, my computer had to be taken into Best Buy because the internet wasnt working, etc, etc. When I get it back, EVERY single one of my brushes has been either deleted or something. I tried downloading some, making some, and saving them. When I make them, they only stay there until I close the program and there never to be seen again. Then if I save some, they dont even show up. Anyone have any advice? *sigh*

Cutting Image

I've already looked through the tutorials (and found this tutorial) but it was unclear. I'm trying to cut an image and place it on a seperate background, like in this picture.

I'm using PSElements, and have tried using the lasso tool, but I can't get clean lines like in that icon.

silhouette + technical difficulties.

Hi, I was wondering if there was an easier way to turn a picture into a silhouette rather than using the lasso tool and taking for-ever...? Thanks & I use PS7.

Also, I don't know why, but after the program's been open for awhile, it suddenly stops working properly and the message, "Could not complete program request" comes up and I can't do anything - not even save it! Or, if that doesn't happen, it suddenly shuts down. I don't really get it, because I still have tons of memory left on my comp and it always crashes. blehhh =/ so frustrating...

so if anyone can help me i'd be soooo grateful and i'd love you forever :P
