Banner Tutorial

Learn how to make a banner like This

Made in PS 7…I didn’t do anything real fancy so it’d probably translate fairly easily. This is pretty image heavy so it might be bad for dial up users

Help Please

I've been trying to figure this out for awhile now. It should be simple yet I'm having such a hard time with it!
How do you get the solid color behind the text? Is there a brush or something that is shaped that way or what!?
Please help me if you know, or have a tutorial on it. I haven't been able to find one myself. Thanks in advance!

Oh, schnap. I've looked in memories and saw something for blurry text, but my text isn't blurry. It's pixelated. I'm trying to put different fonts in, but they all look pixelated, and I haven't changed the settings or anything.

I use PSP9. Thanks in advance!

I can't seem to figure out why my curves won't go past 98%. If you know how to fix this problem in Adobe it'd be greatly appreciated.
Also, how do I change the colors of brushes I have downloaded. For example if I have a brush that is black and I'd like to make it a different color is there a way I can change the color?
(another) Also, how do I rotate a picture in an icon?

In Search Of...

I'm looking for a text motion blur tutorial. The finished icon is something like

OMG ::motionblur:: WTF?

There's no picture, but the background has stripes, I think.

I swear I saw it as part of a tutorial list, but it's not on either list I have bookmarked.

To all of you icon makers who use exclusion/color burn layers: why do you use them? What effect do you like about them? What do they help you achieve?

I've fiddled around with them, but I've never been happy with the results.

Okay, I've been looking but I cant exactly find how to make these kinds of icons, I tried on my own and it didn't turn out too bad, but does anybody have a resource site to get the textures or gradients or whatever is used on these types of icons?

^ That's what I'm talking about.
