RUNNING tutorial 1

Mm, first tutorial! This tutorial will use a picture of Aelita from Code Lyoko Season 3. I made this in Ulead PhotoImpact, but I'll try to write it as best as I can for PS or PSP. ( Note: when I say inverse of multiply, if I end up doing so, this is equivelent to your Screen 80%, PS/PSP users! )

Help Please!

I use Serif Photoplus 6 and can't figure out how to take a pic from my photobucket to use as my tutorial and then how to save the pic when done as an icon {I'm a beginner} and just learning any help would be great.
it is.

(no subject)

Okay, so I made this icon ages ago, and can't for the life of me remember how. All I know is I used a combination of tutorials (which ones, the world may never know) and the little glare thing in the corner was a brush set on linear burn.

The icon:
The original.

Any help is greatly appreciated. Oh, and I use PS7.

Static-y television animation?

Hi, I checked the animation tuts in the memories and couldn't find anything, so~ I was wondering if maybe there was a tutorial out there that explains how to do this "static television effect" I've seen using animation? It's an effect that looks like a staticy TV blinking on & off to different images, kinda something like this, but with an image looping in somewhere:

(from this site)

I use Photoshop CS2, and ImageReady for animations. Thanks in advance!

I have a question, obviously.

I use PSP8 and I've seen icons with text that is sort of slanting, as seen in this example: by syliasyliasylia

Whenever I try to recreate the slanty font it always ends up being blurry and unfocused. I want to know if there's someway I can fix this problem unless this is just a all round problem with PSP users.

If you have an answer to this problem I'd be so grateful! :)

Suggestions for washed out pictures?

I'm working with some images that are really washed out, contrasty and way heavy on the orange and pink. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on how to color those types of pictures. If it helps, I'm working with BTVS screencaps and my programs are PSP 10 and PSE 5.0. I did check out the mems, but didn't seem to find anything directly related to what I'm looking for. I do apologize if I missed something though. :) Thanks for all your help!


Here's an example of what I'm taking about:

You add one screen layer to it and it gets way too bright. Or you add a softlight layer and it's insta-orange. I even tried desaturating it and so on and so forth. Sorry I wasn't more specific. /sheepish
