Happy New Year guys and girls!

I use PSP8 and Animation Shop, and I'm really frustrated with the result of my animated icons. Every time I save an animated graphics, every frame of the picture gets grainy and just BAD looking.

This might be a stupid question, but I'm new to photoshop, so bear with me.

My cropping tool must have something like locked proportions turned on, because it will only let me crop images that have the same proportions as the original. What exactly is going on, and can I turn it off?


I went through all sort of tuts to try and avoid asking, but unfortunately I didn't find any tut that would help me. I try to find a way to get the edges like in that pic.

I tried for a few hours finding some tool that would achieve this effect, but failed. So I hope there is someone who can help me. Oh and I use PS. Thanks in advance.


Hello people. I wanted to know if someone
knows how to do the effect of this blend. I am sure it is a texture, but I can't find it. If someone has one that can make that effect, please tell me.
Also, someone knows what type of fonts are used in the blend?
Any kind of help will be appreciated.

First Tutorial - rectangular wave/oscillation/vibration

Hi all!

This is my first tutorial

We’re going from this to this :
in PS CS2. (may be translatable if you have a filter “wave” or
"oscillation" or "vibration" [I'm not sure of the translation]).

Level : super easy! (the hardest thing will be to understand me, but really, the icon is very very easy) and quite fast!
with optional and customizable steps

Okay, I know these questions annoy everyone to no end, but I'm desperate.

I've checked the mems here, as well as in other communities, but I can't find what I'm looking for. I've also tried messing around with some tools myself, but I can't get what I want.

Thanks in advance!


PLEASE, I am a Photoshop beginner and I'd love to know how you make this kind of icon: by neversleeps in Photoshop 7.0! Since I'm a total newbie, a step by step tutorial would be greatly appreciated!! (Maybe with screencaps??)

Or anything else you want to learn me!!

♥Thank you all in advance!!♥

Okay , I was actually wondering if anyone could help me with this. I've been using paint shop pro for a while and decided to convert over to photoshop 7 to try it out. I need help with something.

( icons made by tokyovampire )
How do I do the curved edges + borders like that ?

Any help would be greatly appreciated! or even direct me to other tutorials.

fixing concentrated brightness

Hi there.

Just wondering if anyone has any tips or advice for fixing an image with a certain amount of brightness concentrated in one area of an image. I'm thinking it's pretty hopeless, after experimenting in Photoshop for about a half hour. I couldn't come up with an effective solution.

Thanks for your help. Here's the image.
