Cropping quesiton

Possibly a dumb question, but I'm at a loss at what to do.

I recently converted from a PSP user, to a PSCS3 user and I'm trying to figure out how to crop an image.
In PSP, you can select the hight & width, and it will automatically give you the crop box, but in PSCS3, it's not doing it for me. I'm trying to make crop some images for icons, and it makes me resize them myself, and the images always end up not being the size I want.

So, how do I crop? I'm completely lost at how I do it.

(I hope this post made sense).

Help - Brush Conversion

I have Paint Shop Pro 8 & the extension for brushes is .jbr. I want to be able to use .abr brushes for the program, so I tried converting them using this tutorial, which uses a program called an Extension Changer, but when I go to imports it into PSP8, it still says the format is too new & unsupported. Is there another way to fix this? Please help, & thank you!

text problem

Hello everyone :)

I got a little text problem with photoshop CS2: I already checked the memories, FAQa, Q&A and stuff and I still haven't solved my problem...

My text isn't huge or small, it just doesn't show! I type, but it's as if I typed nothing.
I already checked the resolution of the image and the units and rules preferences, like I usually do when there's the super huge/super small text problem, but nothing changed, my text still doesn't show.

anyone knows what I should do?

thanks in advance to everyone :)

color settings

I asked this before when I was on PS7, but I forget how to do it now and I can't find the post in the mems, so here I go again. The problem is I can't remember what it was titled when I posted then, but I tried looking in the section for Photoshop errors, the one for miscellaneous, theories and principals, and the FAQ. Then I tried searching the comm for my username, but I still found nothing.

I use Photoshop CS2, and when I'm working on an icon and save it, it appears darker saved then it does on PS. I think this has to do with the color settings, but I can't remember how to fix it or what to change it to. If anyone can help I'd really appreciate it. I think there was something in the mems about it, but I had to be directed to it last time as well.



Hey guys, hope someone can help me.

I did check the memories, but I couldn't see this anywhwhere,s o sorry if it has already been posted.

Does anyone know where I can find the tutorial to make this avvie? >

Thanks in advance!



I'm having some trouble with this icon. It's 90kb and I'm trying to shrink it down so I can use it on LJ. The smallest I've been able to get it to has been 57kb, by changing the colors 10 128 and taking out several frames... any ideas?

Oy vey.

Can anyone help me get my icons under 8 KB?

I have tried everything I can think of and there is seemingly nothing I can do to make them smaller without seriously sacrificing quality. I know it's possible, but I'm just not getting it.

The only thing that works even a little bit is setting the image to indexed color then resizing it to 90 x 90 pixels. And even then, everything looks so jagged and awful.

Funnily enough, this is only happening now that I'm working with PSCS3. When I made icons in GIMP, they were never more than 4 or 5 KB and always looked fine. Hmmph.
