I hope I'm allowed to post this in this community. It should be alright though.

I'm working on a school project and have put a number of works of art on a new canvas. However I seem to be having a problem with the actual creation of the canvas, which should be about 50cm in width and 33cm vertically, in a landscape format. I've converted the ruler to show measurements in centimetres rather than pixels so it would be easier to work with. However, for some reason the images are all appearing quite small on the canvas, and it's bugging me a whole lot.

Perhaps I'm setting the wrong number of pixels/inch(resolution). I read somewhere that it should be around 300 to print in high-quality(I'll be printing the final product once it's done). The way it is right now it looks just horrible. Is there something I'm missing? I tried to enlarge the images on the canvas, but obviously the quality of the image doesn't remain quite as good. I've never actually worked with PSP for such a thing, but when I've done similar work, and imported the image in Word it usually appears to be too big in fact. So I'm fearing the canvas might have come out a bit too big for some reason or other(possibly because of the resolution? :/)

I would really really appreciate any help on this please. :) Thanks in advance!!

Note: I use PSP8.

Anyone know how I can stop this from happening?

And how I can close the script box? It won't let me press the little X and it won't let me click anywhere else in the program. I was working on something and tried to create another new raster and that happened.

I'm using PSP 9. This has happened to me quite frequently.

Horrible saving quality

I'm trying to make a moving image icon in Adobe ImageReady. The icon is made out of good quality pictures, but as soon as I save any as a .gif file, the quality turns awful. The size is 15.9.

I'm pretty sure something is on the wrong setting, or it's really obvious, but I'm still very new at this and I'm not sure what it could be. Any help would be really appreciated, thanks!

It comes up like this:

The colour is set at 32 on the Optimise box, but when I change it to 256, it automatically changes it back. Anyone know if this is the problem, and if so, how I make it stick on 256 please?

I got this image from the community The Girls of BtVS & Ats Icon Challenge. I'm not sure who to credit. I give ALL credit to them and I will NOT use this icon as my own, though.

But I have seen this effect on many icons and CANNOT figure out how to do it. All the edges are sharp, and her cheekbone is sharp, but the colors on her face and neck look almost airbrushed, and not sharp at all. How do you get some parts sharp and some parts soft like that?

I downloaded Adobe Photoshop CS2, and coming from PSP X, I find CS2 really hard to use. I have a few questions about CS2 if somebody can help.

How do yo add picture frames/ borders in CS2?
I can seem to find where to add borders or frames. I looked all around, read the FAQ, and looked in the Help topics, but I still cant figure it out.

My font is really big. Even the size 6 font looks really huge on a 100 X 100 pixel image. The font also looks really.. odd. I see the thing to the right that says Strong, Crisp, etc, but nothing I chose makes the font look right.

How do I get to my textures? I cant find them. I see the pattern stamp tool, but there are only like 10 textures to chose from, and I had a lot more before. Can I load my PSP X textures into CS2?

Those are all my questions for now.
Thanks if you can help!

Perpetual Photoshop caps lock?

I'm in need of some assistance. I'm using photoshop 7 and somehow it seems that everything I type in photoshop is in caps. It's like I have caps lock on, but I don't. I know it's not my computer because everything else [this post included] works just fine; that is to say, there is no perpetual caps lock on.

Does anyone know what the problem might be, or how I can fix it? Has anyone else encountered this problem before?

I'd appreciate all the help I can get.

Small question...

Hello! I'm using Photoshop 7 and PSP8, and I was wondering if anyone knew of any tutorials for curving text after you've typed it?

I remember seeing one a while ago with Sam from LotR, but I can't seem to find it. That or any other would be greatly appreciated! I'm sorry I don't have an example or a better description.

i use psp9.
and everytime i open it, then click a tool (on the toolbar)
it says loading cache, then checking new items.

it pretty much lags my computer, and takes long to load.
is it some settings that make this happen?
cause i dont have a lot of brushes or anything.

any help would be greatly appreciated.

i went on a little experimenting on my own.
and fixed the problem! :)
if you are having the same problem as i am.
open up psp9.
go to file, preferences,
then reset preferences.
UNCHECK reset general pref.
and CHECK delete all cache files :)

First icon tutorial. ^_^

Someone asked me how I got the texture in the backgrounds of some of my icons, so I made a tutorial and I figured that this would be a good place to post it.

Sorry if this it's a little hard to follow, this is my first time writing one of these. If you have any questions about it, just ask.

We'll be making this icon using PS7.

To the tutorial!

text won't work

I've checked the memories and found no problems of this sort:

I'm unable to write text on any graphics, nor even blank canvases. All I see is a tiny blink where I clicked to start writing. Regardless of what I type, nothing appears on the screen, but the layer window says that I've typed something. Help?

EDIT: All fixed now, thanks!
