Me again.

I looked through the memories, but I can't seem to find any coloring or anything on this icon. Could someone help me?

I don't know who it's made by, but if you do, tell me so I can credit.
Thanks again.

Mask Brushes/Textures/Imagepacks

Hi there, does anyone know where I can get icon-sized masked brushes that are basially black on the inside and white on the outside borderish type of ones? Anything would be great! Image packs are definately welcomed!!

(hope that was not too confusising!)

Tutorial: Image Correction via Photoshop Tools & Filters
Created by: gossymer
Program: Photoshop CS
Tools/Filters explained: Shadow/Highlight (only in Photoshop CS and higher), Blurs (Despeckle, Gaussian Blur, Median, Smart Blur),  Unsharp Mask and Fade.

Note: Correcting colors will be covered in a separate tutorial



These changes were made without any use of brushes or textures. Tools and filters native to photoshop can correct pretty much any image.

Adobe help!

I have Adobe Photoshop 7 and I've been seeing some funny things lately...

A bunch of fonts I didn't download showed up one day. They have names like CASSANDRA and BAILY. I've used them without problem, but since last night it won't let me put any kind of text on any size of picture in less than 300pt font. I've selected font size as low as 6 and it still will only type in 300pt.

This is kind of ap ian in the bum, and now I'm wondering if it's a virus or what the heck is going on.

Can anyone help?

EDIT: Okay, figured out the font thing... sorry about that... but where'd all the new fonts come from?

2 Tutorials for the price of one...

I only just joined icon_tutorial, but I thought I'd post up the two tutorials I've written. My apologies if this isn't ok, but as far as I could tell, there wasn't anything wrong with it. Both tutorials are fairly basic, though may require some knowledge of your program. They're written for PSP8, but as far as i can tell can be easily transferred.

Okay, in PSP8 I've been trying to blend two images together for about 2 hours using the feathering tool, but it's not working. I've tried selecting on different layers and setting the feathering to different sizes, but it just doesn't do anything, while it used to work. Please help! I have no idea what I'm doing wrong.

those pretty little edges

hello, i looked in the memories and such and i couldn't find the answer to my question (though i'm sure its relatively obvious, because i'm blind like that :P) but i was wondering if anyone could point me to a tutorial or give me direcitons on how to make the edges seen in this icon:

thank you in advance! ♥

(P.S. i have some brushes of these edges, but none are in the size i want :/ that's why i'd really like to know how to do them myself. sorry if i'm a bother.)\

ETA: sorry. my problem is solved. you don't have to comment anymore. i figured out how to do it. :) thanks to everbliss, 77words, morningstar4, and nutri_g. :) :) :) :) :) :)

Photobucket files?

OK, so I have quite a few icons I've made (I'm working on one of those 100 icons thins) and I want to put them on photobucket. The problem is that the program I use, Adobe Photoshop Elements 2.0, saves my icons as .psd files, and photobucket doesn't except .psd files. I was going to change them all to .gif files but the picture quality was HORRIBLE when I did that so I scratched that idea. So, now I'm torn between .jpg or .png. I saw on here that icons saved as .png that are supposed to be transparent in parts don't quite work. Is that true? What EXACTLY do they mean by transparent? I'm kind of new to this whole icon making thing. So: JPG? PNG? Something else? Please let me know. Thanks.

Oh and just to make sure (this is probably a really stupid question): Will 100 icons honestly fit on Photobucket without me going over on bandwith? I've never had more than 10 icons on it before and I've actually gotten an email saying I went over on bandwith once. To be honest, I'm not even quite sure what bandwith is, so I just thought I'd make sure that all my icons will fit on Photobucket. :)
