i made a post yesterday about this collage, thanks for the help!
well, i tried to blend the images i had together, like above... but it didn't work. i tried blending them together with the eraser tool, my lecturer also taught me to blend images together this way, but i've forgotten how it goes.
could anyone post a quick tutorial on how to blend images together, like above, please? i'm fine with the brushes, i know how to do that, just making the images blend is what i'm struggling with!

are there any good tutorials that you used to help you blend?

mhm, also recommend me a good community/site for brushes!

i use photoshop 7.0

please and thank you, i would appreciate this alot.

Two questions

Alright. I have been putting off making icons lately because I've gotten really annoyed with photoshop. Alas, today is my day off, and I really wanted to make a few, but need some questions answered first, so if anybody is willing to help me, I'd love you forever!

[1] Every time I add a new layer to place text on an icon, the text has a line running through the center of it. I've gone through just about every option, but I can't seem to get rid of it, thus limiting me to textless icons. Basically, anything I try to write looks like this. Anybody know how to get ride of the strike line?

[2] This may be a stupid question, but whenever I set an image to greyscale, then add new layers, trying to add colored brushes over the top of it, the brushes are black and white. What needs to be done to the image to allow for color overlay?

Thank you SO much!

Kind of an odd request, but I'm looking for TUTORIAL LISTS. I don't usually have enough time to look through all the post that have been made, and with tut lists i can just scroll through and save for later. All kinds of tut lists are fine. I hope this kind of request is okay! Thanks, ;D

Coloring help

I made these icons myself a couple of months ago, and I had the psd for it, but then I reinstalled windows and lost it, so now I'm wondering if anyone knows how I could get it?


They are all the same coloring!
All I remember is that there were some selective coloring involved, a light blue burn layer, and maybe a softlight layer I'm not sure, but I can't remember more than that. =S

I have PS7 and PSCS.

Help is appreciated, thanks in advance! =)
