Hermione Icon

Hello peeps. Well yes, I've come out of my 'never going to write a tutorial' shell to bring you this tutorial. It is the first I've written, so calm yourselves it probably isn't brilliant. I'm using Corel Paint Shop Pro X to make this but it though be transferable -except for one step that involves High Pass Sharpen- does anyone know what the equivilant of that would be in other versions or programs?

Because I'm a layer and image whore this may not be for the faint of heart; also I'm prone to ramble at one stage or another, get used to it or don't click the cut ;) Though I don't reconmend people follow tutorials to the dime, because how boring would that be? Comment if it's helpful, I wouldnt mind seeing results and also the finished icon is up for grabs, just credit me.

Tutorial 004 - Harry on an acid trip CHALLENGE

I've never seen this around before, so let's see how it does. This is a Tutorial/Challenge - you follow the tutorial and then I challenge you to make the icon better and more creative than it would have been had you just followed the tut!

Tutorial made for PS CS. Translatable, I believe.

So do you want to go from Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting to Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting and beyond? Make it spiffier? My result from spiffifying was Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting, but you've got to make it spiffy yourself!

( C'mon! You know you want to! )

Image Pack trouble

Sorry if this has been asked before. And it probably has, but my search through the mems came up nil...

I use PS CS2... I've downloaded an image pack, and don't know exactly how to turn all the images into an actual brush pack. I tried the "edit >> define brush preset" option, but after I click "okay" the new preset is saved in another brush pack, and I need to make this image pack into an all new brush pack of its own. (I'm sorry if I'm not explaining this well.)

Edit: Thank you for all the help! =] I'm having no trouble now!

question about curves

I've seen quite a few tutorials here and elsewhere that calls for the use of curves to fix color. One recent example would be this tutorial by _sinelinea. I use Photoshop Elements 2.0, and there isn't a curves function; or, if there is, I haven't been able to find it.

Does anyone know if it's possible to achieve the same effect without the curves function in Photoshop Elements 2.0? Something similiar would work too. Or is it simply not possible?

Ive fallen in love with this style of icon. The bluey/greeny colours being made more obvious whilst the rest is pale, the white is very white. Can anyone tell me how i can achieve such a look?

Tutorials for Dark ScreenCaps

I've lately been making alot of icons for the Supernatural fandom and while the show is amazing, the way it's shot is just very dark and color-less and yet I've seen great icons that brighten and colorize the show beautifully and I just can't seem to figure it out. I'm sure curves are involved and so forth but I was wondering if anyone had ran into this problem with various other caps and had some good tutorials for it. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

Photoshop Error...Images Not Opening

So I usually have no problem figuring out whats wrong when PS messes up but this time I'm lost and I checked the errors section of the memories but nothing covers my problem.

When I try to open a picture up in Photoshop 7 nothing shows, whatever format I use, just blank. So is there a way to completely reset the programme or any solution to this problem? I haven't touched PS in over a week and it was fine the last time I did.
