A few tutroail questions

I was wondering if anyone knew or had a link to any tutorials that talk about making/creating icon masks, icon patterns or textures (not light textures though) if anyone could help I would really appreciate it. I dont really want to go into this blind sited :)

For exaplin how would I make something like  dearest

textures (heres an example: here) or how to make mask, grunge brushes. I know how to make lyrics and things but what I really would like to know is patterns, textures and masks because I have no clue how to make those :]

Ok so I lurk here and use all the wonderful tuts. But I am going to take a stab at a tut. I have written a few just for myself. But I am not at my computer so I will just do this one. Alright so yesterday I made this backround


So I am going to show you how to do it. This is really easy. So anyone can do this. I will be working in pspX but its probably translatable. =)

Firstly, I use PSPX.

Now, when I resize images, they tend to get a bit pixelly. Not so much that you can't tell what you're seeing, but enough that I don't like it, and I know they can be clearer. I try blurring the images a bit before resizing, but that doesn't always work. I specifically have this problem with animation caps (Disney). When I resize, it's definitely no good, the lines are pixelly, and if I blur pre-resize, you can't see the lines at all.

So, any tips on how to resize and keep the image clear?

I'm trying to make an animated icon similar to THIS one (made by amortentia_gal) using screencaptures and ImageReady. It's probably really simple and/or has been posted before, but if you would let me know how to do it or where to find the tuturial, I'd really appreciate it. :)

Could someone help me?

alrighty, I've looked through the memories twice like a good girl and still cant find what I'm looking for...though it is within the realm of possibility that I'm completely blind so be patient with me :P

For the longest time now I've wanted to make those little 100 x 100 patterns

ETA: I did some searching on a couple PS tute sites (dont knwo why I didnt think to before) and found this which I find to be a decent one if anyone else is interested

Okay I just have a little question...
I got Photosop CS2 about 2, 3ish weeks ago and I know that
Adobe requires you to activate your product within 30 days of installing it.
So Im not quite sure if I've activated it or not :\ 
I did come to a point where it asked you for a specific serial number 
I think that that may actually be avtivating it but I want to be sure cause
it would really suck if I would not be able to work with PS CS2 after just 30 days.
I appreciate your help so much :D

Clumpy text

Alright, this is what I meant about my small, clumpy text.


My small text on the top and bottom is all nasty looking. Whenever I see other people's icons with tiny text, it's very small and cute, and doesn't look at all horridly clumpy such as mine. I have tried the tracking and kerning that some have helpfully suggested to me, but it doesn't seem to help me much. I know I'm probably doing something ridiculously stupid, and I'm sorry to be a bother. But this is driving me crazy!

Adobe Photoshop CS2 Help

Ok I hate to be a bother, I have checked the memories but I wasn’t exactly sure what I was looking for so I didn’t find anything. I’m using Adobe Photoshop CS2 and it has started doing something annoying when I try to resize a picture. It resizes okay but it leaves a small, faded border around the edges and I can’t figure out how to stop it doing that. At the moment I’m resizing them slightly bigger than what I want then cropping the border off but it is beginning to annoy me.

screen caps

Hey ya'll! I was just wondering how I could do a screen cap on my computer. I have loads of movies...but I don't know how to get the images. I've used the print screen button but it doesn't work when I copy it into PSP8. I hope this is the right place to ask.

Hello all,

Does anyone know how to achieve the colouring affect in this icon. I use PSP8.

(sorry, I'm not sure where I got this icon but if anyone recognises them, let me know.)
Thanks xx
