Hey everyone. I need some help. I use PS7.

I was making an icon just a few seconds ago, and all of a sudden, I couldn't click on anything. Every time I tried to click on something, it would open a new window in my firefox, taking me to the adobe help page. This has happened before in the past, and the only way I know how to fix it is to close PS completely. ]; The only stuff I could actually click, were the options at the top [file, edit, etc.] and the current tool I had selected.

Does anyone know how to fix this? I would be forever grateful. :]


i was wondering if these dashed lines and shapes are brushes or something else..

all icons by __iiicons

i searched in the communities of textures, brushes, etc but i didn't find stuff like these...
can anyone explain me how to make them by myself or point me to what can help me?

PS: i use photoshop 7.0

could someone tell me how to get from the original pic to the icon below:

it looks like it involves an exclusion layer, a multiply layer maybe and perhaps a burn but i can't seem to figure it out. at all :| i've looked for tutorials and stuff but all i'm finding from like the past three months are selective coloring ;)

Question about BSPlayer

I was looking through the memories for something that I could use to cap some avi files I have. So I downloaded a program called BSPlayer.

Anyone know how to do caps with that program? I couldn't seem to find anything last night.

If you need to know anything else, I'll be glad to provide more information.

Thanks in advance for the help!

ETA: Solved! Thanks for all the help!

The thin white line...

Okay, so I made this icon (first time putting a mini-movie in an icon that was on the second layer not the first). I'm pretty pleased with it, cept for that irritating white line round the character.

For some reason when I did a quick test of the icon before I made the proper one, I managed to avoid getting that white line, but I have no idea how I did it. Anyone know? I'm using animationshop and PSP8.

Test icon so you see what I mean.

Seriously, how did I manage to do that?

I thought it might have had something to do with the resize of the icon from 200x200 to 100x100 but when I went into PSP8 and tested it out (by filling the layer under the resized image in black) the white line didn't show, so it was fine.
It must have something to do with being exported in .gif format, but the 200x200 test icon was a .gif too cos it needed to be transparent. So I don't get why the test icon doesn't have a line but the real icon does.

BTW Thanx for all the help on my last entry about the fonts.

I'm sure this has been posted before, but I looked through the memories and couldn't find it. And it's driving me crazy.

Does anyone have a tutorial on selective coloring? Like what it is, and general how to use it stuff? Because this is one thing I can't seem to master on my own. xD

Thanks for any help!
