[twilight] maybe tommorrow


I was wondering if there was an equivalent to PSP's burn. I use Photoshop 7, and have color burn, but they do not have the same effect. :)

Also wondering if there are any other differences that I should be wary of while following tuts for PSP.

Color Picker in PS CS

Hey guys, I have big problem - that might be the reason why I'm posting here. :)

Okay, so you all know the 'Color Picker' in Photoshop. Normally it should look like this:
Free Image Hosting at www.ImageShack.us

But mine look like this:
Free Image Hosting at www.ImageShack.us

How can I change that back to normal, any ideas? Because I just can not work with the second one. I don't know what happend, just one day I started PS and it looked so strange.

Thanks for reading and hopefully helping me.

Does anyone have any tips on how to achieve this coloring?

Made by magique_icons. I use the GIMP, but I have nearly every tool that Photoshop has or know how to translate tools from photoshop, except for exclusion (although it looks like they've used an exclusion layer in there somewhere). Thanks in advance!

some filters greyed out in PS CS

I've recently upgraded to PS CS from 7, and there are a couple of things that confuse me. I checked the help file in CS but coudlnt' find what I was after. Basically, certain filters are greyed out and I am unable to use them when I am working on a certain pic/icon. I've put two screenshots of what I mean beneath the cut as they are large.

Ok I know that you can reduce the colour resolution on animated icons to make them less KB and I've gone through the memories trying to find something in relation on how to do it but I can't find a thing. So how do I make this

not so big? Anyone help me? I'm using ImageReady and I'm new to it, so any explanation has to be in Laymans terms. THANKYOU!!!

Black and white icons

This isn't really a problem or a specific question, to be honest, but I'd really like to know: do you guys have any tips for black and white pictures? I've had a long, long look through the entries and archives, but haven't found any black and white icons, or icons using black and white pictures. If you know of any tutorials using black and white icons, could you please post them? Or if you have any good tips, do please share. I'd love to hear your thoughts on it because I think black and white is so classy but so rarely used!

animated bubbles

I checked the memories...

I can't find the example anymore - but someone made icons that had animated bubbles floating up in the air. How would I go about making that? I would love to use it for a presentation I have to make involving detergents. I'm fairly good with PS 7 - but I haven't made too many animations before.

Thank you for your time.

Elements help...

Hi, I have a problem with Photoshop Elements (yes, it's a very old program, but it's all I have). I returned from vacation to find that the program freezes whenever I attempt to use the gaussian blur filter effect.

I was wondering if anyone has experienced anything similar, or knows how to fix it, or can tell me if it's even an elements-related problem at all, as opposed to a problem with my actual computer (which is also very old).

Thanks in advance for any help you can give.


SOLVED My computer seems to have fixed the problem all on its own...but thanks to those who posted suggestions anyhow, I'm sure they'll help if this sort of thing happens again.

Stupid question really

Well, I have PSP X and i'm a having a bit of a problem. Everytime I try to follow a tut there is a step that says food fill with f598784 (random num). The problem is that I don't know what color that is!! Where can I go in the program to type the color code?

Coloring question

Another coloring inquiry x) I was hoping someone would be able to help me figure out how to get the coloring used in this icon:

by lovelamp

I discovered a form of a tutorial in the iconmaker's journal on that icon, but it involves Photoshop functions that I don't know the PSP equivilant to :/ So yes, if anyone can help, I'd appreciate it :)

I use PSP8.

This is probably a dumb/strange/wtf question, but~

I've seen a lot of those DDR icons lately and I was wondering if anyone had any idea how to make it? I have an idea of what to do in the Animation Shop, but I don't have the brushes or knowledge of how to make it all glimmery or whatever it's supposed to do. :\

I use PSP8 and Animation Shop, and I appreciate any help anyone can give~?
