Animation - Gif Question

I looked in memories, but didn't see this exact question. My apologies if I looked over it. I am attempting an animation icon. Very basic. When I save it it loses quality and gets grainy. I read someone had a problem and they said they had too many frames in it. If that is the problem, how can I have the same image transition effect with less frames? Is that what the problem is?

edit: here's another one that only has 20 frames and is only 27 KB :( I still see noise in the circle. Is that just going to be there? Everything is optimized that I know of...

back to annoy...

So I have a sketch that I've been trying to color for an age. Normally, I have no problem w/ this, but for some reason I can't get this one done. It's just a very cartoonish sketch of three ppl.

Insert point here...

Do any of you know of a GOOD, DETAILED color tutorial for doing sketches. By sketches I mean line art. I've been looking forever for a color tut but most of the ones I've come across are vague and don't go into much detail.

I'm usuing PH 7. I also have PSP 9. And a brain cramp from trying to do this.

Please and thank you.

PS and IR Glitter Fills

I saw a question for this a while back and noticed that the user couldn't find any tutorials in the memories. I made one a while ago for another com. so I thought I'd share. It's a bit image heavy though. It also helps if you have had some experience with the programs, but I tried to do my best for beginners. If not ask questions and I'll be glad to answer.

I hope that was easy enough to follow! Let me know if I missed a step or didn't make anything clear. Also, mods, feel free to deleat if something like this has already been posted.

Ok, if this has been asked before, shoot me, ok?

Anyway, what's the Photoshop 7 equivalent of the "rounded rectangle tool"?  Or is there one?  I can't find it anywhere.

glowing text

hmmm -- i've looked a bit and can't seem to find anything on how to do this text glow in photoshop cs. i've tried using the inner/outer glow, and it still doesn't seem to have the "woah-glow" effect.

please and thank you. :)

So kill me for asking an utterly stupid question...I did look in the archive for anything on this, but I wasn't able to find anything. Maybe it's just me.

Anyhow, I don't quite understand the whole mask thing. I know that it's a helpful thing for when you're trying to erase a background and such, and I'd really like to learn how to do it. I've looked at a tutorial before, and I still don't understand. Would anyone like to explain the technique to me?

Hello, I was trying to draw dashed lines using the freeform pen tool in Photoshop CS but apparently, I can't draw the entire line out. Meaning, there is a limit to the dashes I can draw. I've never had this problem before! Help please!

"Infrared" Coloring

I made a cursory search of the archive, but I didn't even know where to begin. So, I hope this is an odd enough question that no one will have asked it before!

Basically, what I want is to be able to color a pic as it would be seen using infrared. I don't have what it looked like before it went through a filter, but here is a picture in infrared:

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Is there any way to do make this effect that is relatively simple? And by relatively simple, I mean that won't take me an entire day to pull off.

I use PSP 7.0

Animated Trail

This is the first time I've had this problem, so I'm lost. I took Collapse ) and used IR to remove the white background and make it transparent. It looks fine when I view it in IR, but when I save it, the result is Collapse ). The transparent part is there, but there is a trail. Why is that trail there? Does it have to deal with the way I saved it? Which way should I save it so that it doesn't have the trail?

Thanks in advance for any help.


Weird text problem

My font's not being very nice to me. Don't worry, this isn't another problem with the text sizing. I read through the memories and couldn't find anything on this. When I use my text, it turns out grainy like I'm using it in paint. It's not as smooth as it used to be. I'm using Photoshop.

Tutorial #1

Before: Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting After: Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

For use with PS7, but should be translatable to other programs if you know what you're doing. No curves, selective coloring, or anything like that; it's just different layers and stuff.
