Slideshow icons

Today, we'll be making this icon:

Look like fun?

Just so everyone knows, this is my first tutorial. I did it because I posted a bunch of Harry Potter, X-Men and Narnia-related ones at my icon journal iconnaissance and people kept asking about them. I got a bunch of requests and then I got busy and thus very bad at filling them. I tried to make it easy, so I'm sorry if I failed and it's all WTF? or if I overachieved and it came off as condescending. Feedback and credit are always appreciated. Also, I'd love to see what you guys used this for if you'd like to comment with a link to what you made. Thanks!

Mini movie help.

This is my first time posting and i am really stuck. I dont usually make mini movie icons but i am starting to get into it. Anyways i forgot what tutorial i followed but i am having a problem with the speed of the icon.

I use Adobe Imageready/Photoshop. Cap using Virtualdub.

I made a icon with it's time at 0 and i saved it as 'save optimized as' and it was working fine in PS but when i went to go look at it to see if it was ok it was going way to slow and ever since all of my icons have been turning out this slow: (Using The Killers)

 

Does anyone know how to fix this?




Question

I was wondering if anybody knew how to make a blend/ or icon look like the following picture.



I really like the dark green effect, the red light burst and the cracked texture.

(no subject)

I'm pretty new to icon making - I haven't even made a first post yet! - so I'm sorry if this is a dumb question.

I use paint shop pro 8, and I cannot figure out how to create this white, sort of graffiti-looking (for lack of a better word) brush on icons. Examples: Image Hosted by ImageShack.us (by ___heyvanity) Image Hosted by ImageShack.us and Image Hosted by ImageShack.us (both by lovenadia)

Are these brushes made by someone else, or can I do it manually? Thanks for your help and sorry again.
