Hello! I never really bothered with making icons ever since my trial expired & even then, I wasn't a great icon maker. I always get lost when following tutorials & what not.

I've follwed the steps & if they asked me to make a new raster layer & set it to one of those options, I'm fine. But I don't understand where & how to get the texture part on the base.

Or maybe if I say it like this.. Uh..

Am I suppose to save the texture & load it as a brush & then paint it on? Or do something totally different?

I'm sorry if it makes no sense. I'll try to clarify it if it is confusing. & sorry if I missed it in the tutorials. If it's been answered in the tutorial, please give me a link. :]

Thank you.

P.S. I'm working with PSP 9.

Text Problem ... I've done all I can!

OK. I'm using PS Elements 3.0, and I'm having a text problem. I've checked my resolution and gone over all of the help I've found in the memories, but for some reason, I can't fix it. I've exited and re-entered my program, as well. I'm sure it's some ridiculously simple thing ... but nothing seems to be working :P.

I'm pretty visual when it comes to this stuff, so I have some pictures of the problem under the cut.

Hope someone out there can help, I know you guys tend to be brilliant :D.

PSP upgrades?

I have a program question. I looked in the memories but couldn't seem to find what I was looking for (if I missed it, please feel free to slap me), so I guess I'll ask.

I'm running PSP8 and I want to get PSP9, but I'm worried that when I install it, I'll lose all my brushes and whatnot. Will this happen? Should I back up my brushes and plugins just in case?

Thanks for any help. :)

*Edit* Question answered, thank you. :)

Noob Question

Hi, the problem that I'm having seems to be with erasing. I'm using Adobe Photoshop 7 if that is necessary to know. I've been doing tutorials to learn different things, and in some of them with the use of textures, etc. I need to erase certain bits. I make sure the right layer is selected, as in the one with the texture or whatever it is on it, and then I erase. But wherever I erase, it seems to turn the color of whatever foreground color I have selected. This is really frustrating and I didn't see anything in the memories for this, so please help me. Thanks.

Okay, I've been searching forever and I can't find a tutorial I remember seeing on here. It was a header tutorial and I think it had Hermione Granger and Victor Krum at the Yule Ball as the subject. If anyone memorized that and has the link, that would be great. Thanks!

Coloring Techniques

Not really, tutorials, but still rather handy. Created in Adobe Photoshop Elements 2.0, but I'm sure it's translateable.

Tutorial ~ Orlando Bloom ~ PS CS

This was made for PS CS but I think it can be translated into PSP. Might require different blending modes.
The very first tut that I post to this com. A friend of mine asked for it and I thought I might share it over here as well. Hope you like it. =DD

I would try asking the maker about this coloring effect but since they're on hiatus from their community, I didn't think I would get a reply. I'm using PSP8, so can anyone tell me how to get this coloring effect?
