Question on this Header Style

I came across this website, The-Used.org, and the style was just beautiful (in my opinion). I can see how there are cut outs and stuff, I can do that, but I'm not sure about the rest. What I do turns out as a mess it seems. Any ideas on how to acheive the look?

Under the cut are three links to examples of what I'm talking about.

My first tutorial...

Hello :) This is my first tut...I made a cool icon and thought I'd give this a try. Hopefully it doesn't suck :P

This was made in PSP8 but can surely be used in other programs. And it's a bit long, I warn you.

Photoshop 7.0 Problem!

So, I just spent the last hour or so looking through the archive/memories (one can get lost in there) and I have found nothing that could help me.

I started up PS 7 today and it reset all of my stuff. I lost my brushes/patterns/gradients/etc. It's sooo frustrating. I have my brushes saved on my computer still, because this has happened to me before and I wanted to still have them if the problem came again (like so).
Anyone know why this happened? And what actually happened?

Downloading fonts.

AH I'm ripping out my hair.
Can someone help me or point me to the right direction to someone who can help me?
K, I use Photoshop 7.0 and I would like to be able to download fonts off the internet.
I use WinRAR and after I download it, I really have no idea where to go from there.
ANY help at all would be very appreciated ^_^
Thanks in advance.

Transparency for rounded icons

I checked the memories, and did find a few things regarding this subject, but they're not exactly what I'm looking for.

I know that saving it as PNG won't make the icon transparent for me, even though it looks like it is until uploaded. I tried saving it as GIF 256, but the sides are jagged, and that's not attractive.

Is there any way to fix this? Or to make it transparent as a PNG without changing my browser?

I use PS 7, by the way. Thanks in advance!

ETA: Solved, thanks to hijabibikergirl!

(no subject)

I need a tutorial and I can't seem to find it, it's for a header, it's with Kirsten Bell and a butterfly.. I had it on my favourites list, but it's gotten deleted! anyone have the link? thanks in advance :)

I'm sure this is a stupid question, but I'm not entirely sure where else I could ask this, and hopefully get a simple answer. I recently tried PowerDVD 6 as a free trial, it's run out and I would like to upgrade, I'm given two options, PowerDVD 7 Standard and PowerDVD 7 Deluxe. The only reason I want this is for capping purposes, would I therefore be ok with the standard, or does the ability to cap only come with the deluxe. I've looked at the website comparison but they appear to just be technobabble that I don't understand. Thank you in advance.
