spring icon

Looking for a Tutorial

I'm trying to find an animated candle tutorial (NOT this one). The finished icon was a scene from Phantom of the Opera. The tutorial I'm looking for not only explained how to animate the candles, but also showed how to animate the shadows as well. I've looked through both my memories and the community memories, but I still can't find it.

Animation Question

I use ImageReady 7.0 to animate my icons, and I know I've seen icons of the same appearance as mine getting 20+ frames into the animation. I know right now mine is at 256 for colors, and that's part of the reason why it's way too big, but are there other ways to make these smaller in IR without reducing the quality severely or taking out frames?

Here's the icon:

Currently at roughly 70kb.

Or if anyone could point me in the direction of a tutorial on how to make this style look nice that would rock, too, because I've seen soooo many icons of this style with a lot of frames that look amazing.

Hi, I just installed Photoshop CS2 but I'm having some trouble with it. Every picture that I open looks reddish and I have no idea how to correct this problem. After I save the picture and view it, it's back to its original colour. So the reddish tint only appears in my workspace. Anyone knows why?

I will really appreciate any help. Thanks!

I'd like to thank everyone that helped on my question a couple posts ago. I tried fooling around with it some more but don't have a lot of time this week, so I don't have a finished product yet, but I have lots of ideas in mind to try and get it the right filesize. Good thing I have Spring Break next week with lots of time to play around with PS and IR. :)

Anyway, the frames in the icon I posted the question about used a fairly basic brightening technique that I accidentally discovered this morning, and figured I should share.

How to go from to ! (It's really easy - I promise.)

I use Photoshop 7.

Tutorial is posted over in my journal. Don't worry, I don't bite. :P
