Ok, I looked back through the entries and the memories, and I couldn't find an answer to this.  Maybe my searching skills suck.

Anyway, I'm trying to make a userpic of this:

Now my problem: I know exactly how I want it to look, and I know exactly how I'm going to go about getting it to look like I want it, except...Everytime I try to add any color at all, it automatically goes to gray.  I cannot get anything in my Photoshop 7 to go to any color but gray.  It doesn't do this with any other picture.  What's wrong with this one?  I've tried quitting out and going back in and trying it again, but that didn't work.  Even the text color goes to gray, and I can't get it to any other color.  What am I doing wrong?  Please help!!

And if this has been asked....sorry.  My searching skills suck.

If this isn't really the place to ask (though I think it is), let me know.

Okay, so, I mod/created fandombrushes and I requested a few brush sets. One of the brush makers made two sets, and they made an imagepack that I used. So I opened the images, defined the brushes, and went to make an icon.

Edit: problem solved. Thank you to those that replied!

I can't seem to figure this out, and I've asked the maker, as well as this community and it's still a big mystery it seems. Sorry if this is annoying, but how do I achieve this simple coloring by beaute__exquise?

Thank you!

vector layers???

I'm curious. In a few icon tutorials and in a few replies to icon qusetions concerning text, people have said that changing the text layer to a vector layer and then rotating it keeps the crispness.
I know where it is and stuff (CS2) but I just want to know. . . . what is the difference between a normal layer and a vector layer? Is it too small for me to see? What is its purpose? :D;

Text/Font help

Hi! This is my first post here.. Don't worry I have checked out the memories and the community info..

I was just wondering basically when making an icon how you make text/font look good! I know this is very broad, but the text on my icons that I make are really crappy. Icon makers where have you learned how to make text look good on your icons/graphics? And how do you know what is the best choice of font?

I use Paintshop pro 10. I am familiar with both Photoshop and other versions of PSP. So anything along the lines of PSP would be helpful.

I guess I am just looking for tips on how to improve.

Here are some examples of things i've made: EXAMPLES HERE. Note that I am new at making graphics so these aren't that great.

Thanks for the help, guys. I appreciate it.

Grainy and Pixeley Skin ?

Hi guys. I'm not usually one to post asking for help, but I'm pretty stumped here. You see, whenever I try to duplicate my base, change it to color burn, and place it on top all the layers, it goes really dark, weird and pixely: Pirates 2 SPOLER PIC Collapse )

Couple Questions

Hey, I have a couple questions, regarding Adobe CS and Image Ready.

1. Is there anyway to save scripts, like you can in paint shop pro?


2. When I save animations in Image Ready, they turn out.. funky looking.. like old or something. Is there anyway to save in a more higher quality format or anything?

Thanks a lot!

Text too large

I installed PSPX yesterday and when I went to add text to an icon, it looked much too large.

This is supposed to be Times New Roman 10: Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

I tried to bring up a new project and used a raster layer, index-256 color palette. Collapse )

This is how it turned out, again using TNR 10: Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

When I went to save that, I got a message: Collapse )

I never had this problem with PSP9, so I'm at a loss. I checked memories and didn't see anything, so if anyone could help me out, I'd greatly appreciate it!

Edit: Solved!
