SC - Blue Borders

Animation Program...Please Help!

OK, I just recently got PS CS3 and it didn't come with an animation program. Through a little research I found out that Adobe has discontinued ImageReady. Well my question is what am I supposed to use as an animation program? I saw something about a new animation program that Adobe acquired called Fireworks. Does anyone have Fireworks? How good is it? Should I just get ImageReady? Please help because I need an animation program, but I can't figure out which one to get!

I read through the FAQ and the memories and I didn't see anything about this, but if I missed it I'm truly sorry! And if it's not allowed, once again I'm truly sorry and I'll remove it!

SOLVED: Apparently the animation program is integrated into PSCS3 now and nobody thought to tell me...LOL! Anyhoo, thanks to everyone for all the help!

I'm wondering if anyone can help me on how to get the brightness in these icons.

Especially the first one. It looks like maybe a radial blur might have been involved, or light textures? I'm not sure. Any help would be appreciated!


I'm trying to see if there's a way to achieve the nice coloring in some of these icons using PSP instead of PS? Any tips would be super appreciated. Just a way to achieve some of this coloring without selective coloring: (The Zac Efron & Hairpsray icons have gorgeous coloring to them)
(Also, the icon Im using).

Thanks very much in advance!

In PSCS2 is there a way to keep track of exactly what you've done to an icon? Like seeing what numbers you used for things like selective coloring, hue/saturation, curves, &etc? Or when making tutorials do you just keep track of everything as you go along?

solved. thanks guys. i guess i just have to get used to using actual adjustment layers instead of applying effects directly to a layer.

grunge & flair blend tutorial

For anyone who hasn't tried this yet, do so. It's a really detailed and elaborate tutorial that I made for this blend which took me approximately 3 hours to write . (click for large version).

I'm using Photoshop CS 3 however, this doesn't have any selective coloring or anything wacko so I guess it is translatable.

Please credit this tutorial if you use it in your blends and showcase it/enter it in challenges. Thank you.

click me for the tutorial @ my journal.

Incorrect colour

Ok when im using PS 7.0, my colours are a bit odd. Like i might use one colour in PS, but when i go to saving the image, the saved product is not how it appeared in photoshop. Like in photoshop, I might pick a tan colour (at least in PS)

but when i save it, it is actually a grey colour.

I've had this problem for a long time, and lately it's been really getting on my nerves. Any help is appreciated!

edit; problem fixed. *face palm* i did check the memories i swear! but must have skimmed over that topic....sorry
