PSE 3.0: Applying Motion Blur to Text

Here's a tutorial for applying motion blur to text on an icon in Photoshop Elements. I used 3.0, but I'm sure it's translatable to other versions. It's hella long and there are many images; dial-up users, proceed with caution. ^^

Stuff is hosted on Photobucket; if you start getting ugly red Xs, let me know and I'll move the pics over to my website. :D

Helpful Hints:
- When you save this, be sure to click "Save for Web," then save it as a .gif with 256 colors.
- Also be sure to click that little box that says "Animate." Otherwise it'll just be, you know, a regular picture.
- My text is like, a size or two too big. 04b_03b and other pixel fonts are much better for this sort of thing, and you can download tons of them from

Hopefully this will be helpful to you guys. Let me know if you have any problems! ♥

I looked in the memories, but couldn't find a proper way of crop and resize without getting it too small cause that's what happened to me.

I cropped, resize to icon size(100X100) and it was made smaller than it suppose to be!

Does anyone know how to fix this?

A few questions.

First, I'm new to the community, but this place looks hugely useful! What a great idea for a community -- I don't know why I haven't joined sooner! I checked the memories and didn't find the answers I was looking for, but my questions are pretty difficult to categorize, so I hope I didn't miss something ... Ok, so let me jump right ahead to my queries...

First question.

How do you get this effect on an icon? Another example, and another. [credit whatsaspork.]

The newspaper looks like a tiny scaled down photograph of a newspaper (rather than a brush, or stamp). Say I got my image and cropped out any background to leave this - would I need any special layer effects to make it look so smooth - cause there's not even any jagged edges or anything.

I'm not sure these following questions are strictly admissible, even though they're related to icon making, so I'll put them under Collapse )

I have THIS cap & I made THIS icon but i'm not happy with the colouring. Is there any way to get rid of the orange oompa-loompa thing going on? Or any tut or any help you give is also appreciated!

I use PS7, btw.

Thanks for the help anyone can give me.
