selective color tutorial

Program: PS7
Effects: Selective color, vibrant greyscale, textures
Difficulty: medium - you should know your way around the program
Tools: masking layers, free transform, adjustment layers

So, awhile ago, I posted a set of selective color icons and was asked how I made them.  It's not terribly difficult, just time-consuming.  In writing this tutorial, I realized that I forgot to do a blackmage icon, so that's the one we'll use here.  I also made an effort to describe why I did each step that particular way, so it's a little verbose.  It may not be dial-up friendly, but I tried to only use a minimum of pictures.

I was asked to make a tutorial for handling Manga/Anime icons by garinungkadol so I thought I'd try at least.

To get any one of these and how to clean up your manga image and tips and stuff like that.

Sorry About This

I couldn't find anything in the memories so I decided to ask. Forgive me if it is in the memories.

I was wondering if somebody could make a tutorial showing how to use textures and masks. I don't know how to use the textures, but I have more thatn a lot. The same thing with the masks. Also I downloaded some gradients, but the aren't .GRD and I was wondering if there is a way you can use it without it being .GRD and if there is can somebody please tell me how. If you don't want to go through an entire tutorial to show how to make it, I would appreaciate if some one could give me detailed instructions on how to instead.

AVI file into Imageready?

Right now, I have a file of a show that I want to use to make animated icons. I have PS CS2 and IR CS2. I want to transport my file into IR, so I dragged it in, I get the proper little thing where you can import clips and such, but the window to view the file is blank. Now, I think it may have something to do with codecs or whatever since it's an AVI file, but I'm clueless about that.

Collapse )

Question is, is there any way for it to work for me? Any help appreciated.

and yes, I did look through the memories. Everything about animations and Imageready anyway. Didn't find anything. and no, I'm not just saying that.

EDIT: I tried something different and all I'm getting is sound. Definetly codecs... any way for that to work for IR?

Motion blur animation using IMAGE READY

Lots of tutorials from me lately. This one is an animated icon, one for those who are beginners to Image Ready. Like me. xD; I usually use Animation Shop, but I tried out Image Ready a few days ago, and I'll teach you guys, too. :D Even if you're advanced, I hope this will be of some use to you~!

We're going from this to .

Warning: Image heavy.

This effect..

I'm having a really hard time figuring out the effect of this icon

(the icon is from a destiny's child fansite, i saved it a long time ago i don;t remember the exact site)

But, someone suggested in AS3 the Dissolve and it looked right, but it took my border and text away. Will I have to go through and add a border and text to every frame?

But if you can help, i have both AS and Image Ready

Thanks in advance

Dumb question alert regarding PSP X trial version

Sorry to bombard everyone with questions-last one, I promise. My PSP X trial version has crashed twice now. With any other program I would uninstall and then reinstall. Is that possible with a trial version? Or would I lose the whole thing? I know that you can't go back and download another trial version as they log your IP address and all that, but I just wanted to know if it was possible to reinstall at all.

Sorry if this is confusing.

Delete if necessary.

Thank you!

(no subject)

Okay, I've been through the archives, but i can't seem to find something pertaining to my question. Also, in some of the ones I thought might help, the pictures weren't showing up.
I have this image and when I crop it down, I get this:
When it's cropped down, the henna gets lighter. How do I darken just the henna, other than going over it with the burn tool, which would take forever with all the little curves and stuff? I only want the henna darker, not her face or anything...

Thanks in advance!
