Remember when I asked about that small font? Well I went through all my 1,400+ fonts and found some that would look good small. I made this in PS, and from what i understand is that PSP and PS is different with fonts. So experiment or whatever.

I didn't include pixel fonts in this guide.

Curving Text in PS 7

Okay, I checked the memories and there were a couple of curving text but none of them really helped. There was a really in depth one but it was for Paint Shop Pro. I tried it but it didn't really transfer well over to Photoshop. I have this banner...

How do you get this coloring?

I like how light and clean they look. Whenever I try to color something, it ends up looking muddy and the colors aren't quite right, like this .

Can anybody help me with this

Edit: Thanks All!

I use PS7.

I've never had this problem before and now I can't figure out how to fix it. When I'm making icons that use text, I have to set the font size at around 300-500 to get the font to be visible at all (when it should be at about 13-25) Does anybody know what's going on or how I can get my settings back to normal?

I've checked the memories for this question but can't seem to find anything (I apologise if I've missed something).

Basically, I've used YouTube Downloader to download a video - great, fantastic - but I want to screencap it in order to make an animated icon. I usually use VirtualDub but as this isn't an .avi or .mpeg file (in fact I have no idea what type of file it is, it just says File in properties) I can't use it. My question to you is -  is there anyway of me converting this in order to screencap it, or another programme I can use instead? Or indeed another way to record video from youtube that can be screencapped by VirtualDub. 

Any help will be ridiculously appreciated!

Freeware Graphics Programe for the Mac?

I recently got a MacBook and I would like to put some free graphics software on there to colour correct my photos and do a little basic icon work on animated gifs. I d/l The Gimp but it's bigger than I need and I don't have the time to learn how to use it. I was hoping that Ulead Gif Animator had a Mac version on offer but they don't. So could anybody make any suggestions for me? Thanks. :)

PS7 Startup Problem

I'm having a problem with my Photohop program not wanting to start up that's been going on the last two days. It'll bring up the window where it says "Initializing/Loading Palettes/etc.," but then the window disappears.

I've tried booting it from the CD, rebooting my computer, opening an image with PS instead of just opening the program, and I even tried system restore. I keep getting the same thing. Can anyone help me out with advice on fixing it?

I've got these three tutorials which are absolutely beautiful, but they are all for Photoshop and I've got PSP X. I was wondering if anyone would be able to translate them to PSP for me, or give me a tutorial for the same effect, but for PSP.
I would love anyone for EVER AND EVER if they were able to do that for me!





Thanks in advance,

Can anyone give me the link to any sites with those textures that have a black background and those white-greyish lines all over and small dots.

For example:

I made this icon a long time ago..and I can't remember where I got the textures.

I'm looking for two particular tutorials.

Unfortunately, the only thing I remember about this one was that it incorporated Variations (adding more red, blue and magenta to be exact). These are two of the icons I made (I don't really like them, but I did at the time).

And there's another tut. I know that the journal posted a lot of oc icons, and this tutorial showed examples with people that she knew, and a laguna beach icon. It really enhanced the blues and cyans. I made this:

(I think I need to find more things to icon, this is rather depressing).

So if you know where I can find the tutst for these, I would appreciate it so much. Thanks in advance!
