Keyboard Problem

I have a problem in PS CS2..
When I have an image open, and I select a part of it with my Marquee Tool, normally if you press 'Delete' on your keyboard, the part goes away from your image. Now, when I press 'Delete', nothing happens :S
The same if I use the Type Tool. When I type somthing, and then in the middle of a word, try to press 'Delete', nothing happens! The text won't disappear!

Please help ^^

Banner Tutorial

I wasn't going to post this because I got such an awful result, but a friend of mine followed this tut and got a really pretty banner out of it, so here it is!

Tip for tutorial makers: Don't try to be clever and try to make a tutorial as you go along, do the smart thing and do a tutorial after you know what it's going to look like, otherwise this happens...

As with all my tutorials I did this on Photoshop Elements 2 so it's very transferable!

Layout effect question

This effect is used often in layouts, but I've also seen it used in icons as well so I was wondering if there was anyone who could help me achieve this effect. Three example layouts that use this effect are here:

Basically, I'm trying to get the background part of the header on all of the layouts. The part that usually consists of two or more colors with lots of brushes- that's what I'm trying to do. I know it has something to do with using textures and cloud brushes together, but everytime I try to experiment, I can never get the right effect.

I've tried to ask some people how to do this effect, but none of them want to write a tutorial for it or they give me vague advice.

I would love it if some of you could help me out! Thanks! =]

(no subject)

Does anyone have a tutorial on how to use curves in PSP8? I just cant get my head around it.When I enter in the input & output my settings seem to be completely different to everyone elses?
any help would be appreciated;)

Looking for a few tutorials (:

I've always wanted to do icons like the ones below. If anyone could help, I'd be completely grateful. (:

-- I use PSP7, PS7 and A3 I also have PS image ready. Hopefully one of these can do it.

First one:

How do I get the text to swirl like that?


How do I do the beating heart like many icons have?


How do I do the pinwheel effect like that?

I apologize for asking for so much help, heh. I didn't know where else to ask, though. ^^;

* I don't know who these icons belong to, sorry ):

trick for backgrounds

I just figured out a kinda cool trick. If you want some sort of design as your background, and you have Microsoft PowerPoint, you can make a background for a slide as if you were making a presentation. when you have the design you want, hit "print screen" then paste into Adobe or Paint shop, whatever you have, then crop the design to the size you want it, then blend from there.

Text help. :p

Ugh. I'm sorry. I've been posting too many questions and not enough tuts.

But I have a question about text outlining. How do I get teh cool outline-ishy effect like on this icon?

I'm not sure if it's just the font or what. :P

Anyway thanks in advance. :)


Help please?

Um... I have a question. :D The part where the 5 individuals blend into each other, how can the effect be achieved? The opacities are different when the edges of each picture touch each other, and you can hardly see the lines where the pictures. Can a soft eraser do the trick?

And in the bottom left corner, how do they get Akanishi's face to blend into the picture so nicely?

Any help is love! :D Thanks in advance!
