I need help!  I'm used to using The Gimp, but recently upgraded to PSP8 and I'm having tons of issues with it.  I can figure out how to make images layers in a workspace.  Can anyone help me out here?  Thanks!

Help please.

Hey all
I'm a bit desperate for help
I'm wanting to make the backgorund of an image black/or white.
It's for a photoset, and the place i shot the set doesnt really go with the theme.
I've tried using the flood/paintbrush tool, but it looks so obvious that it's been edited.
Is there any other way to do this?

Hello everyone!

I'm hoping someone can explain how I can get a text effect like this in ImageReady/Photoshop CS2.

I looked in the memories and came across this tutorial and I tried it but came across a few problems.

I made the background in PS and added the text to a different layer on to. I went into File -> Edit in ImageReady. In IR I added the new layer and made it white but I couldn't see my layers palette so I couldn't hold "Alt" and click between the two layers (if that's what it meant?)

Gah... I'll end up confusing myself. Heh. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Curves/Selective Color In PSP?

I looked in the memories and couldn't find an answer. Does anyone know how to do curves in PSPX and is the final product as nice as it is in PS? I prefer using PSP so that's why I ask. If you could link me to a tutorial I'd appreciate it. I've seen any PS curves/selective color tutorials and I'd like to achieve that in PSP. Thank you.


Another question.

I was able to make rounded edges without any problems (using a tutorial I found here). But when I try to post it, you can see through the image (or parts of the images). It works okay if you have a white page underneath it, but if it's a color page, then you can see that color through it. In other words, the part that isn't supposed to be trasparent, is.

Ex: A colorbar I've been working on. In the second square, you can see that it's transparent, when it shouldn't be. If anyone has any tips, I'd love to hear them.

Hi, I'm new to icon making, and I use Adobe Imageready. I see tons of really cool tutorials here with curves involved, however, Imageready doesn't have the curves feature. I heard levels does something similar to curves, and I'm not quite clear how. (My levels window looks like this.) How does the Input/Output settings in curves translate into levels?

Hey all. Super sorry to bother you with what might be a stupid problem, but...I'm having trouble capping with my VLC Media Player. (There's stuff about capping in the memories, so I figure this is allowed?) Anyways, I DID look in the memories, but I actually didn't find anything about VLC (unless I was looking in the wrong place, in which case, feel free to flame me and complain in iconrants)

On to my problem...Collapse )

EDIT: I'm using a PC, by the way.

Translucence and Transparency

This isn't necessarily an icon question, but it could be applied to them, so I thought I might as well ask. :)

At my work they have Photoshop Elements (I use PSP7, so that is what I am most familiar with). My boss wants to know if it is possible to make a subject translucent. I imagine it could be done with layers; something like screen. But is there some other way?

Also, is there an easy way to make a background transparent? All I know is to open up a new transparent image, select whatever and paste it onto the transparency.

Thanks. :)
