Question: Selective Coloring in PSP

&EDIT; Question answered. Thanks to all who did. &endEDIT

I'm addicted to icons that have gone through a heavy selective coloring layer, such as these:


The tutorials I find on this effect are all in Photoshop form. I have Paint Shop Pro XI , and can't seem to
find the 'selective coloring' in my adjustment layer selections anywhere. Is there any way to imitate these?

Screenshot problem?

edit: Problem solved!  Thanks ficklelicity and  tokudama

Okay, I want to make icons from taking screenshots from my video files. The problem is that everything I print screen and paste the copied image, it appears blank. 


Basically like that. I don't know what the problem is. Can someone tell me if I need new media programs? Or is there any way to fix this?

Also, out of nowhere my some of  my .avi files stopped working partially, meaning I can only hear the audio but the video image isn't there. How can I fix this? 

Thank you guys so much.

Simplest thing ever

There is probably already a tutorial (if not five or six) for this, but I was unsure which category to look in. I tried borders but that wasn't what I wanted. What I want to know is this. I know that you can create a square or a rectangle that's filled with color by using the rectangle tool. What I want to know how to do is how to create a square or a rectangle that is NOT filled with color but instead bordered by color. Basically a transparent box bordered in some color. If this isn't possible, I could do a white box that is bordered in color. I'm using PS7. If you could help me out here, I'd really appreciate it. It's for an important project!

3 questions.


1.Coloring help on this icon, please? I use PSCS2.


2.How do I get the curved corners?

3.I don't have an example for this, but how do you make an icon with a dotted border, where the space between the icon and the border is transparent?

Thanks in advance! :D
