Okay, I know this has been asked on various occasions a long time ago but now I can't find it in the memories so I'm going to have to bother you all.

I use Photoshop CS2 and I just recently noticed that after I save my icons/upload them somewhere/post them, sometimes they appear darker than they looked like in Photoshop. It's really minor but noticeable.

.....And I just realized I can't really show you an example because then the screencapture of how it looks like in photoshop would turn dark after I uploaded it anyway!

- photoshop cs2
- always saved as .png
- .png options: interlaced: none (what is this anyway?)
- uploaded to
- image is flattened

Thanks for any help & sorry if I missed it in the mems.

Okay I'm using Photoshop CS.
It's a text problem I have.
When I'm trying to add text to my icon, I change the size to 12+, i've tried it with every size, but I can't seem to make it any bigger than . <- size.
You can't see anything at all, it's about the size of a grain of sand.
I hope I've described this well enough for you guys to understand !

Oh and one more thing [ which i can't find in the archives ], how do you install a brush on CS?
Thanks in advance!

i got a dvd player for my computer today and i wanted to make some caps to make icons with. but the thing is the default player is windows media player. i have a tv tuner but it doesnt come up. i was wondering are there any programs that i can cap in that are avalible for free?


I read the memories before posting this, and I couldn't find anything. This is the first time I've had this problem and I've been using Paint Shop Pro X since January. Here's my problem: When I make an icon, even if I do not sharpen it even once when I save it and view it in internet explorer it comes out really pixelated. I just don't understand it...this is the first time its happened and it just happened out of the blue. Does anybody know what may be causing it or what I could do to fix it? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Hey, y'all.

I need a little help in trying to find a particular tutorial. I've tried searching through the memories, and my own memories, but owing to the fact that I spent the last thirty minutes looking for my spectacles which were on the top of my head the whole time, I'd say it's time I called in the cavalry.

So. I'm in need of something called the "Photographer's" method of turning colored pictures into black-and-white images. It's not a tutorial per se, but rather a technique that was offered in response to a question. If anyone understands my rambling, or even better, has that technique stashed somewhere in their mems, I'd be eternally grateful.

Glittery font effect

For a while it seemed like there was at least a post a day asking how to make those obnoxiously shiny, glittery, animated text icons (or I might be confused and people over at fontaddicts were just asking for font identifications...), but after going back 300+ entries and checking the memories I can't seem to find anything. It's probably right under my nose, and if so I apologize.

I want to add a glittery effect to some text, similar to this:

Only NOT animated and fading from lighter at the top to darker at the bottom. Vague enough for you? D: If anyone has any idea what I'm talking about and can give me a hand, I'd be supremely grateful. I have Photoshop CS2, and Image Ready if I need it.
