Gradient question

I know I've seen a tutorial somewhere that shows you how to make gradients from images and I can't find it. Would anyone happen to have the link? I've looked in the memories and can't seem to find it.

So I made this icon a while ago. I abadoned Photoshop/ImadeReady (both 7.0, if that helps) for a long time and then ended up forgetting most of the techniques so I've come here for some help.

Now I cannot figure out how I did what I did to the heart brushes (made by artistbynight). I know it involved tweening, but I can't seem to replicate it. Does anyone know what I could have done to get that effect?

Poloroid Question

I don't think I've seen this exact question here

Most poloroid brushes have a white border with black inside, and with icons if you set it to screen it looks good.....with a blank white background.

Now my question is, how would I go about making poloroids on a picture with a background, like let's say a header like this which I made a while ago. I erased everything but the inside so I could keep the background, but I'm looking for a more practical way...if this makes any sense.

I'm using Photoshop CS2. Thankies.

Hi, I'm very, very new to making icons and the GIMP program. I have skimmed through the FAQs and memories and this probably has been posted, but I didn't see it. If it has, I apologize.

I made an icon and one frame of it had a background that I really liked. Now, I'm trying to make another icon and I want that same background image to use again. Trouble is, I have no clue how I made it the first time. Is there any way to get that background image so I can reuse it? There's text on top of it, otherwise I'd cut and paste or something.

Any and all help will be appreciated.

Okay so I am trying to make a base layer with a couple of pictures on it. Basically I am using this tutorial:

But I have no idea how to use a mask. I have looked at all the tutorials but they do not help me. I use PSP9 and would love someone who has a lot of paitience to help me learn how to use them. I think its the best way to blend images. I would love some places to find some masking brushes I guess. I just need help. Serious help with learning masks.
cold love

Photoshop Problem

Not sure if this is the right place to ask, but for some reason whenever I try to add text it won't work. Like, the text layer will show up in the layer palette with what I've written, it's just not visible on the image.

I'm using Photoshop CS. Any suggestions? :/

Smoking effect?

I was wondering if anyone had a tutorial on how to make animated smoke.

For example

I have a picture of a gun and i want the gun to look like it was just fired .

I use psp8/and animation shop 3.

I also checked out the memories and i didnt see anything for smoke effects.
