i knew i should have mem'd it, but...

ok. i remembered reading it here in one of the tutorials, somehow i thought i can remember it if i just memorized the steps or the details and what not, but of course, i forgot.

anyway, i have a pic i took off of Google images, and it's oversharpened. I've read something here about toning it down a notch by doing some Gaussian blur on it or something. Did I get that right? what do i do after i set it to gaussian blur..overlay or soft light?

also, i have a blurred photo. how do i make it as "focused" as i closely can?

sorry that my typing is wacked (do people use this word still? lol) and this is texted only.  i have to get to class in 1 minute. ciao.

Thanks in advance to those who can help.

Curled Photo Effect

Does anyone know how to get this effect in the icon below? I've seen several icons from different people with this exact effect so I'm assuming there's a resource out there somewhere (but I can't seem to find it). As much as I'd like to have the resource, I'd also like to figure ot how to do this myself. I've been experimenting with the transform > wrap command in CS2, but I just can't seem to get it to look realistic. Mine ends up looking more distorted than anything.

I've never had any problems with my Paint Shop Pro 8 until right now. I just had it open and everything was fine until I tried to crop a photo. After I cropped it nothing would work so I closed it out and when I tried to open it again I got this message.

Unhandled exception in InitInstance = 101, What = Internal program error: An invalid parameter has been passed to a function.

Anyone ever had this problem? What can I do?

Edit: Restarting worked. Thanks

Question: I have PS CS2 (can't be bothered to install CS3) and I was wondering, how do you get the swirly glow like on this icon *points down*?

It looks like a lens flare with a radial blur applied, but you can't add a lens flare to an empty layer, so now I'm all confused! Help?
