I'm new here kind of been lurking around for a while...noticed you were all very creative and thought you might be the perfect people to ask help from

My friend, the boy in the picture died recently and i wanted to make this into something was the best picture i had of him with one of my other friends...i was just wondering if any of you could give me your suggestions and tutorials if possible on how to make something out of this...

the only thing is, its not a great quality photo. 

Thank you to anyone who helped at is so soo soo appreciated!

big question

For some reason all of a sudden when I open a pic in my PSP8 to do something with it, there is a grid pattern all over it but its not like that when I open it in other things. Is there anyway to get this to stop it's doing it when I open any pic in PSP and it's starting to bother me.


I need some advice..

Well, I've been looking around here and I've seen some very nice icons and some very nice tutorials. But I just can't seem to make my icons look just as awesome. Please, someone turn me into a true icon maker! My icons are so pale, unprofessional, and well...boring, haha. Here's some examples of my stuff...


I've followed tutorials, sure, but I never seem to get a good result. Can someone please give me some advice on how to make better looking icons?

Another quick question. :D

How do you change (as example) a black text brush with a white background to a white text brush with a black background??

I see people do it in tuts all the time but I'm absolutely clueless on how to do it. Thanks in advance to anyone that helps. :)

I use Corel PSP


I have a question I've been useing CS2 from a free trial and this my first time useing it, umm...I was useing the magnetic lasso and I was wondering how can you copy it onto transprant backgrond like a selection? I've tryed copying it too a blank canvas but it doesn't select, what I already selected, but the whole picture- thank you if somebody knows

Does anyone know how I can turn an image into a realistic pencil sketch? I've done it before, but I didn't save the website and I can't find it anymore. I use PSP 8 by the way, and below the cut is an example of what I'm talking about.

I know this isn't an icon question but the people here are always so helpful and I didn't know where else to ask (although I did post to one PS comm)... Anyway, I started making this header and it's definitely missing something. I don't want anything too crazy, but I was thinking maybe it would be cute to insert a little heart at the bottom of the steps or something. Or maybe just add some hearts somehow... but I don't have any heart brushes or anything like that.

Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks! I appreciate it a lot. :)

BTW, I use Photoshop Elements 3.0.

Heyyy everyone. This is my first time posting. Unfortunately I'm pretty LJ challanged and couldn't even figure out how to post on this thing until today. IT was my internet though the button wasn't showing up. Anyway I've been coming to this site every so often looking for a certain tutorial that I've seen once but sadly lost. I don't have a picture handy. But I've always wanted to know how to make a black and white photo, have one or two coloured things in it. Likee say a black and white picture of a couple and the man's holding a rose and the rose is red but that's the only colour in the picture? Something like that. Sorry if that doesn't make sense. I'm sure there have been tutorials on here for stuff like that. But I have photoshop elements 2.0 but I can pretty much do must things regular photoshops can do. So if anyone knows how it'd be greatly appreciated :) Thank you!! Love this community by the way.
