Jane Eyre Tutorial

Hey, all! I've been lurking for a while, and finally decided to try writing my own tutorial. It's my first, so if it's confusing at all, PLEASE let me know! ^.^

We'll be going from Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting to Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting in Photoshop 7.

I'm almost positive it's translatable. ^.^

I'd love to see any icons people make with this. ^.^

Coloring questions.

I'm having coloring problems. If someone could help me or link me to tutorial(s) that answer my questions, that would be wonderful. I apologize if these are basic questions and/or have already been covered. I tried looking in the archive but didn't find an answer to my question.

1) What is the best way to make a blonde into a brunette?

2) What is the best way to make white, or close to white hair?

PS CS2 Technical Question

I'm usually a PSP8 user, but I am attempting to use Photoshop CS2 for the first time, because I want to be able to start using selective coloring and stuff like that, but the crop tool is DRIVING ME NUTS. How do I know how big my cropped section is?

I've searched the memories, but they can't help me on this topic. When I attempt to use textures on my icons, I open a new, set to 100x100 [background-white] then copy and paste my texture on to the new and drag it onto my icon where I want it. But when I do, it never looks how I want it too.

I'm trying to go for this effect:

or (from organza) or another example: my icon.
with the texture on the top, bottom the sides or lay it over. But here's what I get:

What am I doing wrong? Or is there a more specific tutorial out there that can help me out?

Thank you!

Brush Modification....

I'm following a tutorial on the web and they ask to modify the "semi-soft brush" like so:

It's the first step and I can't figure out how to do that. I try to have everything like it is above, but my brush turns out where it only "fades" on one end. Even that end that "fades" doesn't look like the one above. PLEASE if anyone has an idea or can help it would be much appreciated.

♥ thanks in advance =D
