sparkles for ps7?

So I've gone through the archives of this comm, as well as another one and can't find what I'm looking for.

I'm making an icon and I want it to sparkle. I found a tutorial for what I want, but not only is it for PSP, when I use PS7, but the link for the glitter brushes doesn't work anymore. This is the tutorial I'm talking about, but I need one for PS7 and does anyone have a link to some glitter brushes?

Thanks in advance!

EDIT: SOLVED, thanks!!

Wondering how to...

I was wondering if anyone could tell me or point me in the direction of a tut for these types of icons, found here I want the affect of the CSI ones.

I have asked her, and have waited..I have gotten no response.

If anyone can help, that would much appreciated!

Mod Post!


Please read the community FAQ regarding icon posting and icon tables. Those questions are outside of the scope of the community and I delete each and every one that shows up. That's nearly a dozen in the last 24 hours. That much makes me stabby. I'm going away for a week and aquamarcia is in charge while I'm gone; he's more patient than I am but please stop asking about the tables! Don't make him stabby too.

Play nice while I'm gone, and ALWAYS READ THE MAIN PAGE FIRST.

Does anybody know if there is a tutorial[or know how to tell me step by step] to get the effect that the ipod commercials have.

Like that?

I have photoshop 7.0 and Image ready.

Using Brushes in PS 5.5

I'm an icon maker who's been using Photoshop v 5.5 simply because my dad bought it years ago and I don't have the money to get another version. I'm pretty familiar with it, but when it comes to brushes, I run into a problem. Almost everyone makes their brushes in PS 7, which is hardly compatible with 5.5. I downloaded imagepacks, but then I'm not exactly sure what to do with them.

I realize that this probably isn't a common occurence, but if anyone has an advice, I'd be much obliged.

I'm having big troubles when I'm making animation. I'm quite new at it, and I don't really know what to do. I made an animation in ImageReady with 12 frames, but still it's 65 kB. What can I do to get it down to 40 kB?

Problems with scripts - PSP8

Hi. I'm using PSP8 and was recently fiddling around with the preset scripts, to see what each of them does. One of them is 'GridByCells'and it does exactly that - it lays a grey grid over the picture. Unfortunately, this doesn't just happen to the image currently open when the script is run. Now, whenever I open any pic it has the grey grid over it. It doesn't save with the grid, though.

If anyone could tell me how to stop the script, or something, to get rid of the grid, I would be eternally grateful. I couldn't find anything in the memories; my apologies if I missed the answer.

There's a picture of the problem here (just linked as it is a large image).

[ETA: Fixed, thank you!]

making bad caps look good.

Anyone have any methods/theories/magical incantations to improving the look of lower quality screencaps? I know there's only so much one can do with less than high quality images, but I was just curious if anyone has some method that works for them.

Specifically, I'm trying to make this into an icon, but the graininess just kills me, and I'm not savy enough with Photoshop CS2 to fudge with it properly.
