A great River/Jayne manip popped up on my friends list, and the artist mentioned that there was a tutorial posted in this community recently on how to make manips that she used. The tutorial used a pic from http://www.romancebookcovers.com/

I'd like to attempt the tutorial myself. I tried going back through the recent entries and browsed through some of the memories, but as I wasn't really sure which category it would be under (I'm very much new to graphic making so I'm thankful I've stumbled across this group) I couldn't find it.

It's probably in a very obvious spot, and if so I apologize for taking up your time with this, but if anyone could point me to the tutorial I'm speaking of I'd appreciate it.


ETA: Found it! pc_timestwo gave me the link.

problem with font size

Hi, I'm new here, and I wondered if someone could help me with a problem with my fonts (excuse my english, it's not my born language).

I'm using Photoshop CS, and since yesterday I've been trying to put some text in an icon I'm making. The thing is that no matter what font I use and what size I put (I've tried everything), the text appears as if it was put on 1 pixel size :(.

Any idea what migth be wrong? Thanks in advance:)

EDIT: Solved!

icon critics

Is there a community that critics single icons rather than your entire icon journal? Sometimes I feel like I need help with a particular icon, and can't find the place for criticism.

I'm trying to find out how to create the Polaroid effect on this icon. I have the brushes, I just don't know how to get them to look like this. Can anyone help? I'm using Photoshop CS2. Thanks in advance!

Brightening Dark Screen Caps

This is the first tutorial I've shared so I hope it works out for everyone. If anyone has any questions I'll do my best to help. I've assumed you'll have some knowledege of photoshop to begin with. This tutorial simply shows the method I used. It was created in Photoshop v.7 but could be easily translated to other programs.

My Photoshop CS2 is screwing up on me, and I don't know why. Sometimes, when I open an image and crop etc. and change the size to 100x100, the icon base shows up as the correct size. But the rest of the time, the resized crop shows up maybe two or three times smaller than it should be, while the proportions still say 100x100. Can someone tell me how to fix this / what I'm going wrong?
