Brush help

Hey all, just wondered if you could help me locate a specific brush... It looks somewhat like blood splatter, but it's close to a straight line, with little smatterings coming off it. I know that makes absolutely no sense, but if anyone knows what Im talking about and might be able to help me, I would be greatly appreciative.

I'm using PSP8, btw, so .jbr would be the most helpful, but I'm willing to take anything at this point.

Pixel Patterns

A while back someone posted a link to a really cool site with lots of pixel background patterns. I believe it was here in this community, but I can't seem to find it in the memories. I looked under resources (which seemd the most logical place to look).

I thought I bookmarked this page, but I can't find it. If anyone remembers and could link to it I would be very thankful to you :)

Photoshop: Perpetual Inverse Problem

I've recently run into a problem with my Photoshop. This does have to do with icons, although not entirely. Anyway, I was using the pen tool when I tried to do the "Fill Path" option. It filled it, but it filled EVERYTHING outside of what I had selected. So I tried to do "Make Selection" and the same thing happened - I have to do "Make Selection" and then Inverse it - which is a pain. Does anyone know what the problem could be? Help is much appreciated!

An example, since I suck at explaining thing:

See? That random triangle always used to be what was filled in before. Now, instead of the triangle - what I drew with my pen tool - everything outside of it is filled in. I don't want that to happen - that's the problem.

SOLVED! Thanks :)

i looked back in the memories, but i can't seem to find what i'm looking for.

i have PSP 8 and i have no idea how to use brushes. i've tried downloading sets then importing them to the brushes but it doesn't work, some kind of error pops up. can anyone help me out?

(no subject)

I went through the memories but may have missed this.

I was wondering how you get the background like thing under the text. Since I don't really know how to explain it I have two examples by [info]laurad311.

I use PSP8. If anyone know how to do this please tell me and if you know where i can find a full icon tutorial on it that'd be great. I know it's like probably really easy, but I can't figure it out. Thanx.

forgot how :(

gah okay i saw how to do this but i know there's a way how to make captures 1024x768 in powerdvd no matter how big/small the movie is but um i can't find it anymore. i looked in the memories but i can't find it.

any help would be great. thanks

Making icons Crispy

When I make icons, for some reason I am unable to get the image to look sharp. This usually happens when I try to make icons out of quicktime files though, like small videos, not with DVD screencaps. Can someone offer their tips on how to smooth out the pixels in the picture, heighten the contrast, and keep the image sharp and crisp?
