(RPG - Emiko)

Wipe effect?

I am a first time poster here, but this comm has helped me a lot with my own up and coming icon journal. *Points to username link.*

I've been looking for tutorials on how to get this animated icon effect. I've looked for tutorials, but haven't been able to find any. ( I use CS2, and the icon was taken from rxyangl )

(no subject)

How might I go about making an icon like that [the animating part] in AS3? I've looked through the memories and such, but I couldn't really find what I was looking for [read:I have no idea what I'm looking for, and just confused myself trying to puzzle it out lol]

Any help would be really appreciated :)

Icon Brushes - help

I want to make some brushes for the icons that I make,and hopefully later on i'll add them into my LJ. I was told to save them as an ABR File, but where do I find this? *confused* - I use PS CS2.
Any help would be great.

Animated Pixel Icons

I have a lot of pretty icon backgrounds like this one from ladystardust_xs .

What I can't figure out is how to add text to them, and not mess up the animation. I can't figure out how to get the text on a transparent layer, while the animation is still going on underneath. I want to make something like my default icon, and something similar to this one by kankissu2 . I use PSP9, and Animation Shop 3.

Also, if anyone can explain how I would get the pretty outline of 'Lynn', and how to make text look like that, I would be greatful. I've looked around for similar text effects on still icons, but all of them are for people with PS. PSP doesn't have the same features, as far as I can tell, so everything I try looks very, very wrong.

*Edit* Solved! Thank you so much!

someone please help

i don't know if this is allowed. another icon tutorial place wouldn't let me- if it's not- please tell me where i can go!

I downloaded the trial of photoshop a while ago. I don't have the money to buy the program and now the trial has expired. Does anyone have any ideas of what I can use? I'm using a Mac.

I love this community and I really would like to add to it but I can't without a program to work with.

*thanks in advance*

I have no idea why, but whenever I use curves it comes out different from how it looks like in the tutorial. I get that in every picture it's different but I've done it even with the picture used in the tutorial and it NEVER comes out the same. Please help!

I used Photoshop CS.

When I do use curves, I just input the same thing that the person puts and I click okay, it ever comes out the same. Is there something I'm missing.

Someone please help.
Preferably I think it would help me to get a screenshot of every step of the way to the curves. Starting from the opening dialog where you input a name for your adjustment layer.
