Feelings - Holding Heart close

(no subject)

In utter frustration, I come here for help.
I just wanted to make some simple dotted line brushes, which I read the tutorials found here... thank you for having great memories... however I'm at a total loss as far as my photoshop 7 settings go.

I can not for the life of me, find the brush spacing bar. Here are the two areas where it SHOULD be...

BUT...all I have is the stupid master diameter bar. ARG!

Does anyone have any idea where the spacing bar can be??
Honestly, why does Photoshop have to be so frustrating at times!

Color Picker in my Photoshop 7.0

My color picker in my PS7 has gone all screwy! I don't like it! Somehow, I changed the setting accidentally on my color picker so it now looks like this rather than the old way where it didn't have the obvious color lines going vertically.

Does anyone know how I can change it back to the regular way (I don't have a pic of it) where it's easier to choose and find colors?

Sorry, if this is convoluted, but I hope you all know what I mean!

ETA: Problem solved! Thanks!

Step 2: Duplicate the layer 4 times! Follow this part carefully because it could get confusing. on the first duplicated layer (the one closest to the background) set to Screen and then go up in this order setting the rest to these as you go up: dpl2 Soft Light, dpl3 Hue (press Shift+h and set the Hue Saturation and Lightness all to 0 so that its black and white) DON'T PANIC!, dpl4 Soft Light. Now looks something like so...

^^This is what I don't quite understand. When I duplicate it and change it to the set layer, nothing happens... I don't quite understand  what I'm doing wrong...what what the hell I'm doing at all....
Any help would be amazing!

Thanks guys! I understand now. Yay!

I made an icon tutorial using Photoshop Element 4.0 to get

this can be found here.

After some requests, I put a general icon-making guide together which can be found here. I'm certainly not the greatest icon-maker in the world, but it is an interesting guide that may give beginners some direction when making icons.

coloring question

does anyone know how I could get out a coloring like in this icon?

this is the orginal picture and the icon is made by xtatiq. I know there's tan multiply layer at least, and propably desaturated screen/softlight layers. but does anyone have time to be more specific, like for html color codes and everything? I would really appreciate it.
