Since I got such a wonderful response on my first question, I thought I'd ask another. If this is covered in memories, I apologize a thousand times, but all I found was image prep with relation to fuzziness or dull colors. Every once in a while, I'll download a magazine scan and it'll have this odd kind of "screen door" overlay that I have no idea how to improve (if there is a way). So I thought I'd ask if any of you've ever encountered this and, if so, what the best strategy for diminishing it would be. My attempts with despeckle and noise haven't helped much, but I realize I'm a beginner at this stuff.

Thank you very much.

Imageready : problem with frames

I use Photoshop 7 and Imageready and I'm having a terribly frustrating problem with animation. I've put all my layers together in PS7 and jumped to Imageready in order to animate. However, although the Layers pallette shows all my layers as normal the Animation pallette only shows the last layer. According to it, all seven layers are the same - the last layer. All my frames are visible in the Layers pallette. Also, when I click the arrow for options the 'make frames from layers' option is shaded out.

I've looked through all the memories and have been on a demented trip around Photoshop help sites, all to no avail. I'm not all that up on IR so I know it's probably something stupid I've done - but what?! I'd be most grateful if anyone has any ideas. Thank you!

EDIT solved by aerianya. Thank you!

Oh yay, question time.

Doesn't it just make you super-excited when you see, not a tutorial, but a question? =)

My question: I'm not lucky enough to have ImageReady, and I'm pretty sure GIMP won't allow me to resize my animation to less than 40kb. (If it can, please let me know!) Could someone resize this for me? ()  It's my new-and-improved Juggernaut icon, and I like it so much better than the one I have now because he comes up out of the ceiling, which is sexy.  Anyway, if you help, I'll love you for at least 5 minutes. ♥

I was wondering...

EDIT: Solved. Thanks to amato_sole for the awesome help.

How did dinkylorenzo do this in the icon? It's the icon that I am currently using. I've looked through the memories and couldn't find a tutorial that would help me to make an icon like this. Any help would be much appreciated! Thanks

I use Photoshop Cs btw

Tutorial #1 - Vibrant Colouring

This tutorial was made using Paint Shop Pro 7 and was meant to demonstrate how I achieve the more vibrant, clear colours on my icons. It was requested by multiple members of my icon community, raptureicons, and I hope it'll be of some use to everyone.

We will be going from -

I will gladly answer any comments or questions regarding this tutorial, it's my first attempt at writing one.

I've never seen a tut for this. Ever. AND it's super easy. I'm going to teach you how to take an image, and put it on it's own layer, while keeping all the shading.

And go from:
But don't let my lame color choice discourage you.

This works really great with balck and white manga images if you want to put a gradient or texture on top of it, or color it.

Done with Photoshop 6, but possible in Paint Shop Pro.

Photoshop CS Error

I was happily working on a graphic [a header] just a minute ago. Went to apply a brush and got this message:

"Could not complete your request because of a program error."

I saved the PSD and closed PS. Restarted my PC. Opened PS again, opened the PSD, tried to apply the brush again, and got the same error message. Changed brushes and tried to apply, but got the message again.

I closed PS. Restarted my PC again. Opened PS, opened a new image, and tried to apply a brush and it worked fine. Opened the original PSD, tried to apply a brush, and it gave me the message again.

Anyone have any idea how to fix it? It wouldn't bother me and I'd just let it go, but the graphic needs a brush on it and it's bugging the piss out of me.

Thanks for any help in advance. :-)


Problem solved! Thanks so much!

My first Tutorial. No need to be kind...that's how I learn! :-) Feel free to tell me what I'm doing wrong, what you don't like...and what YOU like! Show me your work, I want to know if it has helped others.

Photoshop Elements 4.0, should be easily translated to PSP and other graphic programs (I hope!)

Here we go!

Quick question. Does anyone know how to compress an animation? I mean, without lowering the color palette, or losing quality.

I just made this icon:

but LJ won't let me upload it because the file is too big. Any help would be awesome :)

I looked through the memories, but none of the tutorials I found use both the programs I use (I use PS CS and IR).
