Scratchy effect in PS7

I use PS7 and was wondering if someone could tell me how to get the scratchy effect on the background of this icon:
by exit47

I remember this being asked recently but I went back over 300 entries and couldn't find it... but I seem to recall it involving Filters > Noise > Add Noise and then Filters > Noise > Dust and Scratches, but that doesn't give the same effect (actually, the Dust and Scratches bit doesn't seem to change anything).

So yeah, can anyone help me?

Totally Lost!

Hi everyone. Long time lurker, first time poster. I'm hoping someone can point me in the right direction. I use PS 8 and I'm wondering how to make icons similar to the icons below made by __iiicons. Thanks to anyone that can help me out!

Brush problem... [PSP8]

Well, usually I can figure this out, and I have before, but I'm having a bit of a problem and I couldn't find this in the memories I've recently had to reboot my computer, and since it was just a system recovery my brushes were still in the file. But when I went to upload them to my program again, they wouldn't. I've tried relocating the brush file but that didnt work, and loading them as custom brushes.

imagepacks, deleting, PSP 10

Hi! I just have a quick brush question. If this is already in the memories, than I do apologize. I have PSP 10 and have defined my brushes using imagepacks. I'm all set to go. Now my question is, do I have to keep the imagepacks on my hard drive or can I delete the files once I have defined the brushes in my PSP? If I delete the imagepack, will I lose my brushes? Thanks a whole lot in advance! Sorry for the n00b question-LOL!

This tutorial was originally done in Photoshop 7.0 but should easily translate into other versions and programs. Please enjoy!

This question may be a bore already to some, but I'm curious as to how the icon coloring below (by reignicons) was achieved. I don't think I'll be able to ask the maker (yet?), but if anyone knows then that would be great. I know exculsion layers, etc. we're involved, but I need specifics.

Requested Tutorial

Requested tutorial by unspell. She requested a tutorial for this, but since I didn't save the .psp file I had to recreate it. I don't remember it being this complicated to make, but this is all I could come up to get a similiar look.

  • I use PSP8, but this is translateable.
  • Image Heavy.
  • Not that beginner friendly (21 STEPS!).
    *Just so there's no confusion, in my previews it's always *LAST STEP* >> *CURRENT STEP*. (except if there's a color fill layer). This is what makes it Image Heavy. If it confuses people, just let me know and I'll keep them out of my future tutorials.



    I know, there are a lot of layers and a lot of steps, let me know if there's ANY confusion.
