Rounded Borders

Okay, feel free to shoot me, but I just tried the memories and to my surprise, I did not find what I was looking for and I KNOW this question has been asked before.

I've been dying to know how to make rounded edges/borders on my icons for a long time, and I know it's supposed to be as simple as selected a rounded square or what not and voila.

For some reason, I can't figure it out. I use Photoshop CS; and I don't know where the rounded square option is because the selecting tool only has rectangle and round and eclipse and all that, and the shapes tool does something funky that I haven't quite figured out.

Nor can I find any brushes, then again, my searching skills are poor.

Anyway. Can someone point me in the direction of a tutorial for rounded edges? Or the like? Thank you ♥

icons too dark...

okay... I've cruised the mems but I'm not finding an answer here...
I enter icon contests fairly frequently... and almost never win. The biggest reason, from what I've been able to tell is that my icons are always too dark. I lighten them, and they look beautiful on my computer (a laptop) but when they get uploaded and entered, they show up way darker on everybody else's computers. Now, is it just the angle of my screen or is there some way to change my monitor settings so that I know it won't show up so bright on my screen?

I use PSP8 if it makes any difference...

example 1, mine is #10

example 2, mine is #1

example 3, mine is #1

Any advice you can give would be a big help, seeing as I have another one due for anything_lims on Sunday...

I checked the memories, but if I've missed it then shoot me.

So uh, I use PS CS2, and up until earlier today everything was fine, just when I opened the program today, the settings were reset to how they were when I first installed the program, but that was all easily fixed and stuff, but now whenever I try opening an image, this comes up.
It'd never done that before, so anyone know what to do to stop it doing it?

Sorry if it's a noob question.

Problem fixed.

Don't know who's it is. Sorry.
Colouring ideas for ps6.0?
And, does anybody know for a tutorial on making those little block brushes for icons?
Or just a link to some brushes of them possibly haha?
♥ Thanks.

I have a question.

Whenever I go to use a texture, it always uses the color the last color I used on the palette is. I've noticed in the tutorials that the textures don't change colors. I was wondering what I was doing wrong. Any help would be appreciate. ^^;

I use PSPX.

ps cs question...again.

I'm sorry, I'm sure my questions are getting annoying but I know there are a lot of people here who use ps cs so I figured I'd get the best/quickest response here...
does ps cs have a 'histogram' function/tool like psp does? and if so where can this be found?

(no subject)

I was hoping that someone might be able to lead me to a tutorial that can get me this colouring by trutdelamode  
And this icon by cool_rush 
I use Adobe Photoshop Elements 4.0 So I don't have selective colouring or curves. If I do, please help me to find where it is! :D

A problem with Animation Shop

Hi! I've a problem with my Animation Shop. I'm trying to make an animated icon with the Animation wizard but something goes wrong. When I upload all the frames of the icon, the result always is an animated icon where the "movement" or "action" always goes the opposite way (from forward to back). I've uploaded the frames in ascendent order and descendent order but the result is always the same. Somebody knows what's happens? Any solution?

Hola! Tengo un problema con mi Animation Shop. Estoy intentando hacer un icono animado con el asistente de animaciones pero algo va mal. Cuando le subo todos los frames del icono el resultado es siempre un icono animado en donde la "acción" o el "movimiento" va de adelante para atrás. He cargado los frames en orden ascendente y descendente pero el resultado siempre es el mismo. Alguien conoce el problema y me podría dar una solución por favor?

Thanks!!! / Gracias!!!

An icon tutorial with light textures ^_^

Ok, well I was making one of my Yue 50 icons (Yue from Avatar: The Last Airbender) and was just about to flatten the image with all the layers, when I realized that this icon would work well for a tutorial on icon-making using layers, erasing, and other aspects that make a pretty icon.

Normally it takes me about a half an hour to make a quality icon; just because I mess with the layers and a bunch of other things with Photoshop.

Oh and before I forget; this tutorial is for Photoshop (I use Photoshop CS, but it should work for most versions of Photoshop), so if you’re using GIMP or another program, you may have to modify the tutorial for your specific program.

So let’s begin. :)
