PhotoShop CS Text Help

I checked around in the FAQ & the archive area & didn't see anything that helped. So, hopefully, this is alright to post. If not, let me know & I'll remove it asap.


I'm trying to do an icon in PS and I'm having issues with the pixel part, of the text...

The pixel text is supposed to be 'Hillbilly'
Font is D3 Beatmapism, size 5, if that matters

But, whenever I type it up in MicroSoft Paint, it shows up perfectly fine --->

I have absolutely no idea how to fix it, either. And I'm not sure if it's just PS, or not. I'm assuming so, since I can type it up in Paint, and have it come out fine. I also don't have a problem with the text coming out like that, in PS, on my parent's computer. But, I can't use theirs because I don't have all my fonts, and whanot, on theirs. Otherwise, I would. That and they'd have a hissy fit if I did.

If anyone can help me with this, and knows of a way to fix it, I'd greatly appreciate it. It's driving me mad that I can't figure it out =[

Thanks!! [=

Tutorial : {Sid Hammerback}

I wasn't quite sure if I would reveal my latest coloring style, but a few people have asked for the method
and when I create every batch of icons (with this style) I usually do some tweaking with the style anyways.

So, here is a tutorial for my style I've been using lately, but the inputs are most referable to my CSI icons and House.

When trying it out, make it your own: mess around with the opacities and color ranges. But you've probably heard this before. Anyways,
on with the tutorial!

Going from to in Photoshop CS.
Involves layers, curves, color balance, hue/sat, selective color. Most likely for intermediate / advanced users.

I need help

Some days/ weeks ago I saw a tutorial of an icon which had two guys in it. The colour was a bit yellow/brown/green-ish.

The thing is, my pc crashed recently and I lost every file I had, and I had it saved as a .psd file and I'm dumb, I didn't add it to mems.

Can someone help me?

This is my first time posting here, so I'm sorry if I'm doing something wrong.

I was just wondering, I made an animation using ImageReady and when I saved it, this is how it turned out. Anyone mind telling me what I'm doing wrong?
