Manga Coloring Question

Please forgive me for this question if it's been asked before, but I couldn't find anything in the memories.

Does anyone know any good manga coloring tutorials? (preferably for PS7) I'm trying to color this image.

Thanks in advance for any help.

[edit] answered, thanks for all the links to the great tutorials ♥

Paint Shop Pro - Selective Colouring Version

IMPORTANT!!! This is a Paint Shop Pro version of the 'Red Highlights Selective Colouring' craze hitting Photoshop users, I used __belfry's image in the selective colouring tutorial @ __belfrycons as a comparison

Level: Moderate-High - layer knowledge a must
Program Requirements: Layers, Adjustment Layers (though may not need adjustment layers should the icon be merged prior to a step)
Program used: PSP
Translateable? No

Hello everybody! I'm using PSP8, and I'd like to know how to achieve the really pale-but-bright-and-colourful sort of look, a la the icons below. What sort of tools would I be using?

Also, how would I go about getting the faint yellow tint/glow in the icons below?

Thank you in advance.

Maybe someone can help me? I've got Photoshop 7.0 & everytime I use either colour balance or selective colouring & save the icon & then open it again/upload it, it doesn't look the same. It's as if it's got way more saturation or something. So if I put the saturation about 30% down & save it, it looks about the way it was before I saved it, but still somewhat diffrent.
I don't know if it's because I use PS through crossover office because Linux is on my computer, but I'd be glad if someone could help me ;)
eta: I just realized it's like that even if I don't use colour balance/selective colouring. That's even worse :|

I have a question concerning fixing coloring of screen caps. I have tried making icons with yellow-ish images but I can't fix them. I know how to fix blue, red and even color b&w images, but the yellow-ish caps are driving me nuts :(

I wanted something simpler than 293884757 layers of selective color. When I try to up the blue it looks bad to me. If anyone can help, I'd be forever greateful.

eta: I use PS7.

Saving animated images in PS

I just acquired Adobe Photoshop 8, and followed this tutorial on doing mini movies in icons. I got the whole thing down up to the last part. When it comes to saving the icon, I don't seem to find an animate option, as shown on the tutorial. I realize the verson I hve is newer than that shown in the tutorial, so I was wondering if somebody could help me solve my problem?
