hello. i've been watching the community for a while but just haven't posted anything yet. i see these peoples pictures that look like cartoons everywhere and i was wondering how i would get that effect.

i use psp7. i have an example under the cut. it's not an icon, but it's a picture. i found it on some girls myspace.

edit-well, no one really helped much. i still have no idea how to make an image look like that. there is no poster edges in paintshop. i dunno... if you can help me out it would be great. this has been bothering me forever!

I'm having a problem in PS 6, where if I click on Layer 1 and try to drag it somewhere, it will go to say, Layer 2 and drag that instead. I repeat the process again but it keeps changing layers. I don't know what to do. Can anyone help? Thank you!!
EDIT: problem solved! thanks, guys! =)

Can't adjust kerning?

I'm using Photoshop 7.0, and when I click on the little arrow beside the kerning, I can't select any of the choices. I was wondering if there was any way I could repair the problem.

EDIT: Problem solved, thanks very much!

Question about icon size

Hi, I've got a question and I hope you will be able to help me :)

Up until two weeks I have been using Photoshop CS on my Win XP computer. The icons I've made were always under the 40kb limit. However, I switched systems and am now working on my iMac, Mac OS X 10.4, also with Photoshop CS and now ALL of my icons are over 40kb, mostly even surpassing the 100kb line.

Now, I really have no clue WHY. Even with very "simple" icons (I always save them als JPEG files btw), it's always around 100kb. Does anyone here have any experience with this? Any help would be greatly appreciated, of course!

cutting an object


I'm trying to cut out a person from the waist up to transfer to another icon, but it's hard being precise with the Lasso Tool and I get too much background around it. Is there another way to cut an object besides the Lasso Tool, or do you have any tips for using Lasso? I want to do something like the icon below, except waist up, not just chest up. I hope this is clear.
