Masks for Adobe Photoshop CS

Hi, this probably gets annoying, and I have found searched memories for masks and found plenty. But I have Photoshop CS. I know there is an "Add Vector Mask" and an "Add Layer Mask" but it never turns out the way I want. I was just wondering if I could be helped..... thanks a lot, everyone.

I have a question reguarding brushes. I'm fairly new to PSP (version 9) as well as using and downloading brushes, but so far it's been easy, for the most part. I was downloading brushes earlier today and had a...document thing open to see what they'd look like and test them. I went to work and now when I use any of the brushes I've downloaded, they look like this.

I have problems when I paste pictures of a large size into Photoshop (7.0). If it's anything over 600px in either width or height it automatically resizes it. I've tried saving it and then opening it up again, but it's still smaller. Is there a way to stop this from happening? Thanks in advance.

Comic Icons

I don't know about y'all, but I love Get Fuzzy and I would love to make icons from some of those strips. But, I'm not quite sure how to go about it. I usually just crop the bit I want to make into an icon, but when I shrink it down to icon size, the text is really hard to read. Are there any tricks to making icons from comic strips?

Note: My user icon was made by someone else & I'm not sure how they got the text to stay readable.

Question time!

Alright, so, I've been making some pretty snazzy animated icons using elements. The problem is, my more pretty icons are being stupid and are all over 40K. So my question is, how can I keep my pretty animated icons...well, pretty without having to chop them up to make it 40K? Is it possible?

lost tutorial

Ok, a while back, there was a tutorial for an annimation and i have happened to erase where it was (i keep links in my computer so i can go back to them, later). And I was wondering if anyone had remembered it, and can re-direct me in the right direction.  
I remember the icon being based on Narnia and the progam the user used was ps7 and ir.  the way the user did it, is much easier than the way i do it.

thanks in advance!

A few questions regarding Photoshop.

1 - I know ctrl + H hides the "extras", but is there a way to have them off indefinitely (until I decide I want them)? I googled, but can only find lists of shortcut keys, which obviously doesn't answer my question. Also, does this perhaps have something to do with the workspace?

2 - Sometimes, when using brushes - the outline of the brush disappears. Why? Is there a way to fix this?



Hi, how can I make animation icons on a mac?

Over the summer I used my pc and a comination of this program that capped images frame by frame and then put that as a big file into jasc photo shop but neither of those will work on my mac.

Any and all is appreciated. Thanks!

Oh yeah, I have photoshop...what other programs (preferably free) might help me out?

I made an icon out of a screencap and whatever I do, the icon is either blurry or too sharpened. So my question is, is it because of the screencap itself? And if it isnt, can anyone help me with ways to make it sharpened?

Another lost tutorial

I was following links a few days ago and came across a tutorial I liked and tried out, but I wasn't thinking and did not mem it or bookmark it. I thought I knew where to find it again but I'm not having any luck. Maybe someone here might recognize it? Here's the icon I made following it, and the tut featured a character named Cloud.

Thanks for any help!

animation question?

This is my first time posting this community. I would like to ask if anyone know how to make animation icon like this? I would like to learn how to make fade effects like you seen in this icon but without the quote in it if it possible? The person who made this used Paint Shop Pro and I have Adobe Photoshop 7.0, Here is the icon example:

Thanks for your time!!
