Snow-shoes how cute!!

Big GIMP Tutorial

In it, I'll be teaching you how to use a *fake* mask in GIMP, you'll learn about Hue/Saturation (I use this on nearly all my icons- it makes them look more vibrant) in the GIMP, you'll learn about icon text- when to use and when not to in the GIMP, and best of all, it's in the GIMP! (Did I say that already?) It should be translatable.

Text Problem

Hi, I have searched through the archives, but can't seem to find a tut for creating narrowing texts for Icons. I want the text to be wider in height at one end, and narrow at the other. I use PSP9. Please can someone help?

IR - animations

I have a simple question, kinda. I know that you can open (movie)files into IR and then select the part you want to make an animation. But who do you do it? I have tried opening a number files and they won't open. How should I save the file(the clip) to allow it to open in IR.

I have looked at memories, and have gone through almost all the entries in IR; Movie icons; Beginners & FAQ.

so if anyone can help, I would be really grateful!

I've been looking all over for a tutorial to help with this, but I haven't been able to find much. There's probably one right under my nose, but I haven't found it, but maybe someone could help.

Does anyone have a simple way/tutorial to keep a picture from looking washed out? Just a curve, layer, colour balance layer, tool or something that makes it look a little less washed out. I use Adobe Photoshop CS2

Sorry, if you've already somehow seen this tutorial in your f-list. I had this posted somewhere, but I figured I'd copy/paste here. ^^;;;

Oh yes. And crits are encouraged. I want to improve. Direct me, shoot some advice towards me, anything will be greatly appreciated. :3 ♥

set to screen?

I am new to the community and so far i love what i see! I just have one question right now. I've read alot of tutorials where people say something along the lines of "set the layer to screen" or something like that. What does that mean? I am using Paintshop Pro 8.0 and I'm not really sure how to "set a layer to screen". can someone help me with that? I went through the memories to see if I could find it, but no luck unless I'm just missing it. Thanks in advance for any help!

Icon Animation Inquiry

This is somewhat in relation to hauteurs's question...

Hi! The only thing I haven't ventured out into doing is animated icons using screencaps from DVDs. I haven't found an extraction program that works with Mac (and by that I meant something along the lines of VirtualDub). This is my first inquiry and I apologize in advance if this was addressed too many times.
Thanks in advance.

PS I have PS7

PSP8 tutorial --> Christian Bale

Hey! I just joined this community, but I was previously a member here under my old username mpythonfan. This is my first tutorial though! It's done in PSP8, and it probably translates into other programs.

I hope that was easy enough to understand, and I'd love to see your results if you try it!

I am sure this has been asked a million times, but we are using dial up, and my husband needs the phone, so I don't have a bunch of time to search for it (sorry!) but...

(I am using psp8)

Okay, I did something to my program and I don't know how to fix it. But when I resize a picture down to 100X100 it gets very pixelated and it looks really bad.

Can anyone help me?
