Hi, I'm Reiko. I'm new to this community.

I just recently bought Photoshop CS 2, so I'm pretty new to it. Up until now, I've been using PSP 9. I have two quick questions.

1. Does anyone know a good tutorial dealing with masks? I don't know how to use them. When I want to make an icon using polaroid or box brushes (like this: Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting or this: Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting icon by __shiawase) nothing happens.

2. How do you get the outline around and object or person?

tutorial search

Hi there!

I've already searched the memories and can't find it. I just saw it yesterday but I don't know where it came from. So somebody might either point me to the tutorial I am specifically looking for or something similar to it.

What I'm looking for is this tutorial where there's this jpop artist(I'm thinking visual kei) and it shows how to draw rays behind his back and animate it. The rays were colored either green or red I think. Looks like the rising sun behind his back.Or if anybody knows a similar tutorial to achieve that effect.

Thanks in advance for the help.

EDIT: Found it, thanks!

Beginner Question

Hey, I'm really knew to this. I've experimented with a few of the tutorials here. What really confuses me is how to add a layer/brush/texture/something to my work when the people give you the image? I've tried "loading" it but CS2 will expect the file to have .grd or .asl or something like that as the extension. Thank you very much for all your help.

I have a question about making patterns; how do I go about making those popular patterns used in many wallpapers, such as this one used in this tutorial by jillrenay? I already know how to make those simple patterns such as grids and lines but I'd like to know how to create some from brushes and pictures. I use PS7 if that helps at all. Thanks!

Color bars

OK, I know I saw this tutorial here somewhere, but I don't remember where. I looked in the memories, but got really overwhelmed really quickly.

If someone could post a link to it or a link to a color bar tutorial, it would be greatly appreciated, thanks. :)

Animation Tutorial

I know there are a lot of animation tutorials in the memories, but I didn't find one that was quite what I was looking for. I was looking for a tutorial that made an icon similar to this but more smoother in the transitions. This icon was made by aprisa.

Help is awesome! Thanks!

okay, maybe I'm just insanely blind and cant see it but I'm having problems screen capping something. I' can use either PowerDVD or Windows Media player...the problem is...if I capture using the print screen button in WMP or use the capture button on power DVD, when I paste it into photoshop once I continue playing the video file...the cap plays too. does that make any sense? anyone? or if this is already addressed in the FAQ could you link back to it cause I've looked over it about 6 times and cant figure it out :P

Does anyone know where to find some good tuts for Jasc Animation Shop 3 about how to "put" animation in the brushed boxes and create the fading effect so you can insert words?

I've been searching, but I can't find any that I could understand :-/
