Concerning Picture Resources

Hey everyone!  Okay, I'm in the process of making a layout.  It's a summer/love theme.  The problem is, I can't really find any pictures for it.  I want pictures exactly or similar to the ones under the cut.  If you could give me a site where I could find these, or ones similar, it would be much appreciated!!

Thanks! Collapse )

Two tutorials for PSP7, primarily involving blending effects various especially washing-out effects.

Hi, I'm a new recruit, and I thought I'd post my couple of tutorials to say hello to everyone here. I hope they help, er, someone, somewhere. *gazes off into the distance*

These two tutorials require a basic degree of aptitude.I don't bother to explain how to do common things like messing around with layers, the marquee tool, feathering, brightness/contrast &c. I used PSP7 to make them, but most of it would work in Photoshop too, I think.

Click on the icon to view the tutorial on how to make it.


^ Includes how to make that nifty washed-out look (which I am quite fond of), as well as sundry fooling around with layers and blending options.


^ Includes how to make your icon look like the colour cover of an old-time movie, as well as a bit of exclusion and a whole lot of feathering. Plus, watch ELlipsis be REALLY indecisive about colours, brightness/contrast, and text.

Oh, and if anyone ever runs into any of my icons the making of which they're curious about, just ask. I have a great and epic love for talking about myself or stuff I've made. Yay! My icons all live on my website, which can be got at via my profile. <3

And lastly, for some reason my new Windows XP Computer DOES NOT have Gentury Gothic on it. I am very attached to Century Gothic, especially for icon text. Does anyone know if I can get ahold of it for free?

Comic Style

Hi :)
I'm trying to use a comic style effect on an icon I'm making. I'm looking off of this tutorial. The final step says "Choose Filter> Artistic > Lighten". Only problem is, there is no "lighten" option under filter > artistic, nor any of the other places I looked. This is a PS tutorial, no version indicated. I'm using PS7, which I'm not really familiar with as PSP is normally my program of choice.

I searched for a similar tutorial in the memories, but couldn't find one. If anyone could tell me how to finish off this effect, I'd be very grateful. Thanks so much!

The newest tutorial. It will show you how I did the effects shown on the 'Black Back Set' for the Magicians of Yugioh.

  • Tutorial made using Adobe Photoshop Elements, it should work the same in Photoshop, tweaking may be needed for Paint Shop Pro or other programs
  • A Pallet is given at the end of the tutorial for those who are confused by it
