Does anybody have any good tutorials on blending using masks in PSP8? I looked in the memories and couldn't find anything. [And I don't like the feathering technique that much.] Thanks so much in advance! ♥

Oh the size!

I hope this question isn't too bothersome/inappropriate but I'm pretty much horrible with animated icons and everything I tried just ended up with the complete disfiguration of the original piece.

So I've recently come across this gem by lazy_princess but sadly the size of it (over 100 KB) won't allow me to use it here. So could anyone resize this for me and/or tell me how that can be done without losing too much of its quality?

I use PS 7 & Image Ready and Animake.

Thanks in advance!

okay, so i have a tiny little heart in a picture that I want to put on another picture....I've set the background (which was white) as transparent, figuring i could then click and drag the little heart from one picture to the other. however, it doesn't work. My mouse turns into the little circle with a slash through it when i try to do that. At the moment I have both pictures in .gif format...I'm using photoshop elements 3.

I've already tried magnetic lasso, but I never have any luck with that...i always end up with extra white space, and then when i go back and erase the extra white space, it never looks good.

is there a quick and easy way to do this that i'm completely oblivious to?
