File Saving. ~

I use Adobe Photoshop CS2, and I'm having some technical difficulties. Sorry if this is the wrong kind of question for this community, but I didn't know where else to turn to for this.

I made a few icons and saved them before opening them again to edit and save them again as new files. When I saved the files, I inserted decimal points into the file names and saved them all as .PNG files, just like I did the originals. I titled a few of my icons things such as "15.2, 15.3, 16.2, 16.2," and so on. Others I numbered normally, such as "15, 16, 17," etc., etc.

For some reason, my computer didn't register the images with the decimal points in the title as the .PNG files I had saved them as. Instead, it stated that they were "File" files, not .PNG image files. The File files don't open in any image viewing program I have; or any other program I tried, for that matter.

I've never heard of a File file in my life, so I'm confused now. All of the other files (which didn't have decimal points in the titles, just numbers) were perfectly fine. Is it because I used decimal points that Photoshop did this to the images or was it something else?

Thanks in advance for any help.

Colouring help?

Alright, I'm not sure if this has been asked before, seeing as this is just... silly >_<;

But I made this icon a while back when I was still experimenting with PS7, and now I have no idea how I made it. Thing is, I really, really, like this colouring. Could any of you help me out in fiuring out how I made this? (The icon I'm using now)

Personally, I don't remember playing with colour balance yet at that point, so it's most likely layers set in different modes. I just can't figure out what. ;_;

Thanks very much for any help in advance, and Merry Christmas!
