attention span

just a question

Ok if this isn't allowed let me know and I will delete it. I'm wondering if anyone knows where I can find tutorials on making headers. Any kind of headers I really haven't worked on them so i'm just wondering. I use ps7 and psp8. Thanks in advance.

Short Question:


I´m using PS CS:

I was wondering if there´s a way to let your icons NOT look TOO oversharpened when you use a lot of colorings on them.
Like for example, I use a lot of filling layers, curve layers, selective color layers ... if I do so some icons look really ... like ... I´ve used the "sharpen filter" on them too much.
I hope you know what I mean. Is there a way / a trick to make the whole thing look softer ?
So far I´ve only used the blur thingie, but this also has its limits.

So thanks a lot in advance ! :)

d/g memories

(no subject)

I've looked through the memories, but I can't find anything like this.

It pops up when Photoshop is trying to initialize. Does anyone know what could have happened?

It's not starting now. Any solutions at all would be handy.

It opens, but then it automatically shuts down....

Does anyone know how to create this effect? I know how to create the blur/swirl effect in general, and how to either cut out the area in the middle or just erase in order to have blurred edges and a clear center, but in these icons, you have this single ring of light and I wondered how that was accomplished.

Hey Guys =)
This is bugging me, because I do know how to do it, but my minds gone totally blank!  
I'm attempting to make the 'piece' on the top of this icon, I asked the maker and they said they used brushes and masks =)


Thanks very much in advance =) Katie =)

How to make a simple animated icon like this:

By a beginner, for beginners – using ImageReady CS2. Requested by Steffi but I'd thought I'd share it with everyone. ♥

I am a beginner who has fumbled my way through mini movie icon making! So, I have made this tutorial which I hope some of you may find helpful, however as I am a beginner I’m probably doing some things wrong, or there are probably easier ways to do it, but hey, it works so I’ll go with it. ;)  Lots of clickable thumbnails to help you along...
