i have two questions.
1. how can i get the texture effect on this icon.
like how its so smooth and the color. I've seen some people say, "oh you have to fill it in with a colored layer" or something like that, but i have no clue how to do that!
2. is there another way to put a picture on a background
like how they did with this icon:
without having to get a background, put a picture on top of it with a new layer, and erase the background, cus that looks all sloppy, and you cant get inbetween everything, because you'll erase the picture you want on top of the background. did that make sense? lol. can anyone help?
