Animation Shop problem

Ok I have a question i'm having problems when I save my icons in animation shop. They are all becoming really funny looking like this one. Her face is all weird looking

I used to be able to save them and the wouldn't look like that. They would look normal like this one. Any help to figure out what i'm doing wrong would be greatly appricated.

Text Troubles.

I have a trial version of PSPXI, and everything was working fine on it up until a couple days ago when all of a sudden, the text refuses to be the correct size. Like, I'll go to type something in size 72, and it comes out like a size 3...and that's the same size it stays no matter what point I put it in.

Any suggestions on how to fix this?

Photoshop Newbie.

Hey everyone. I had a couple questions about Photoshop. Firstly, I should say that I am brand new to the program...as in, I only got it yesterday...and it's the ancient version, 5.5. I've used PSP7 for the last two years, so I do know a generalization of working with an art program.

I can follow tutorials well, except I'm a bit confused about the basics of the program. Normally, in PSP, after I've cropped the 100x100 area from an image, I right-click, and select "Paste as New Image," which pastes my 100x100 selection as a new image. I tried to do this in Photoshop, but I didn't have that option. I don't know how to find my other options, like pasting a new layer.

Essentially, I just need help with the very basics. How to paste what I've cropped, as a new image, how to do multiple layers, etc. Any help would be greatly appreciated, and I'm sorry if this seems redundant, or has been posted before. Thank you for your time!

EDIT: This is essentially what I'm trying to do. I did that in PSP. What I did was, I select the area I want to take from the image, hit Ctrl+X, then right click over the gray area. I get a list of options, which include "Paste as New Image" ; "Paste as New Layer" ; "Paste as New Selection," etc.; I clicked "Paste as New Image," and the image on the right is what I get.

...I basically want to do this in Photoshop. :)

Hi! So, this is my first ever tutorial, and I hope you find it helpful

Okay. We'll be going from this: to this:

I use Photoshop CS2. The selective coloring isn't translatable, but you can skip that step and still get a pretty decent icon, I think.

Coloring... Kind of

I'm not sure if this is a photoshop feature or what... Or even if this should be posted here...
Buuuut~ How do I color something like this (bottom picture) and this. Like is it just the default brush? Or some other brush?
This was hard to explain but I hope you got the point. x.x Thanks in advance for any help I may get! ^^

Hi everyone! I'm new here but I've been making icons for a little while now. I didn't have any fancy programs so I used the Paint program that came with my PC. But now I just got a new Mac computer and I'm lost at how to use the programs!

I'm wondering, for those who use Mac computers, what programs did you use to make live journal icons? If you bought & installed any, please let me know. I'm really looking for a simple program that can let me resize and crop easily, similar to the simple Paint program. Is it possible to install Paint on a Mac?

Thanks for your time!
JAM, hands
