Tutorial Question...

I was wondering if anyone knows any coloring tutorials for coloring a black and white photo? I have been playing around but everything I come up with is not looking very good. I was hoping if I could find/be directed towards a few I could learn what would work best for my picture. 

I  use CS3.

Thank You in advance!

So this time I have a problem with my actual Photoshop ^^;

I've been meaning to find out how to make animated icons for awhile when I found a tutorial and started trying it out. Unfortunatly(for me) one of the steps was to click the little Image Ready button. When I went back to my PS screen, as you can see, I couldn't press it. I don't have Image Ready.
I went looking on the web and found out that IR is usually installed with Photoshop right?

I'm using 7.0 so my question is do I need to re-install photoshop or did my version not come with Image Ready?


Hello everyone. 

I just recently purchased Adobe Photoshop Elements 5.0 to edit photos and make various things. 
The past month or so Ive been experimenting in icon making. I want to try and make animated icons and blinkies etc, but Im not sure if my program comes with an animation program. Ive read alot of the tutorials in the memories section and many of you use Image Read or Animation Pro. Do I need to buy a seperate program in order for me to be able to make animated graphics?
I paid 99$ for my program and I am really hoping I dont have to go out and buy a whole nother program.
If you have links that would be wonderful, Im up to learning new things. 
Thanks for your time. =)

'Cut Out' effect.

Does anyone know how to get the 'cut out' affect in this picture? I mean the orange strip that's done around the guy and the green strip around him on the right picture.

A link to a tutorial or a quick tutorial reply to this entry would be most helpful. Thanks!!

I don't know if I should be posting this here, cause it's not exactly an icon problem, but...I don't know a better place to post it. :x

I need to get this to be bi-color, black and white (like this). I'm not sure how to go about doing it without losing any quality. I've got a HQ scan (800x1190), so I guess I could just hand paint it, but there has to be an easier way. I tried posterizing and brightness/contrast, but that made the edges really sharp, and when I tried to blur them it just made it look ... not good. So uh. Anyone have any ides?

Text Icons


Hello, it's me again :3

I looked in the memories and really didn't find anything I was looking for, but I was really wondering if someone could point out or link me to some good text-only icon tutorials? I was thinking about making some, or at least, learning to, but I haven't seen any tutorials in a long time for them. Or if you can't link me, throw me some tips or something because I'd like to make them look decent and not like I just saved a 100x100 picture with text, you know?

Thank you in advance <3

Color blobs.

This is probably going to sound stupid, but — I tried looking through the memories, but I couldn't for the life of me figure out what category would contain tutorials about color blobs.

So, could anybody tell me or point to a tutorial that can explain how to achieve the purple blob of color on this icon (credit to aaa_is_loved), on both icons and larger images, such as headers, etc?

Thanks so much!

ETA: Oops, forgot to mention. I'm using Photoshop 7.
