Text Effect?

This has been perplexing me for a while and I have tinkered with Photoshop but I can't seem to recreate an effect like the text animation on the two above examples by gettingdrastic I'm not looking for an exact way to replicate that effect but just an idea of what particular facets of photoshop I should be using to be able to get text to glide in and out so seamlessly.

I use Photoshop CS and Imageready, although I'm not profiscient in either,[I use animation shop mainly with photoshop] so a simplistic explanation or tutorial would be greatly appriechiated. but all help is wonderful.

EDIT - Solved with thanks to episkeyy & widgetchick

Font issue.

I checked the FAQ and archives and the issues there weren't the same as mine, I don't think.

First off, I have Photoshop Elements 3 with add-ons. Also using Windows, if that makes a difference.

My fonts, when I rotate them, are coming out distorted.

With this icon it appears fine: Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

However this one shows my problem: Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

I can't remember the name of the script font I used in the top one, but I think the second one is just Verdana.

Is this something I can fix, or something I just have to compensate for with other fonts? Thanks in advance for anyone who can help me!

Help with animated icons

Hi I will like to know how can I reduce the size of an animated icon, I recently made some but the size is too big (around 100 kb) for livejournal  use, the programs I used were Photoshop CS and after that I exported it to ImageReady CS.

Coloring help.

I was wondering if anyone knew how I could achieve this type of coloring. I do not now who made the icon and if anyone knows that, I'll give them credit here. :) Icon by spaceship

I was thinking I would have to use selective coloring but I'm not too savvy with it yet so I was unsure if I up the 'Reds' or up the 'Cyans'.


Edit; Solved!

I've been wondering how do you achieve that "soft" effect on icons? I tried a lot of things, but I still can't get it.

Thanks for your help in advance!^^

something weeeeird going on with photoshop. :(

my actions are disappearing. whenever i make a new action, the next time i open photoshop the action is goneee. it's getting really frustrating because i had some good ones there. :( this has never happened before and i'm not doing anything different...



I made my first moving icon with Adobe ImageReady, but when I saved it it saved it as a psd. image that opens with Photoshop. It wont let me upload the icon to Photobucket and I can't convert the file on zamzar =/

So how do I save the icon?
And better yet could someone make the icon for me I'll creidt you.
