I need help selecting the people from this picture. I've tried several methods (erasing the background, using the selection tool, using color channels), and I can't get it right. I use PSP8, and any advice will be helpful!

Also, does anyone know where I could land some scrapbook page textures? Anything bright and colorful with a sixties patter would be fantastic.


CS3 help

Hi! I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this, if it is not then please delete my entry and if possible direct me to the right community for this sort of stuff. thank you.

I'm VERY new to CS3 and I have a problem.
Down in the corner where you have you Channels and Paths I accidentally closed the two other ones (I have forgotten what they are called.) One was a layer thingy and I can't remember what the other one was. Well, can't get them back! :( If you know what I'm talking about please help! ;/

Thank you all in advance!

I am fairly new to icon_tutorials and I love Christmas. I want to make some holiday icons but I can't find any tutorials. If anyone could point me in the right direction that would be great! I use PSP X2 and I like tutorials with textures, falling snow, blinking lights, ect.

I was looking through a tutorial list, & LOVED the coloring from this icon

but when I clicked, it says it's been deleted. I found the original maker (or I think it's the person) but the she hasn't updated her site in months, so I doubt it'd help to ask.

If someone could please help me get the coloring or something similar? I tried but nothing good has come out. Here's the original image.

Any help would be appreciated! (:
Oh & I use Photoshop CS.

[tutorial]: watercolor/painted effect in PSP

The question came up a couple weeks back when someone requested a tutorial on how to achieve a 'sketched' or 'watercolor' effect on images, namely the style used by loleiasbits. I fell in love with the style and immediately started playing around in PSP to see if I couldn't figure it out. The following is what I've come up with.

program: paint shop pro 8
warning: very image-heavy! (i.e. lots of screencaps)

wallpaper-sized examples using this tutorial: here and here.


Does anyone know how to get the coloring on this icon?

by pinklabel? I've seen several tutorials for that brownish-orange effect, but I wondered how she made the icon so light and got the colors to stand out afterwards.

looking for a tut

Im looking for a tutorial that i lost when my laptop died (RIP)

It was an img file (prob jpeg) with Kate from LOST as the example pic
The colouring was 2 different kinds of light blue and a pink colour

Hopefully somebody knows the one since i lived by that tut ;)

when people say mem'ing for tutorials etc. what does that mean?
is there a way to save certain settings (color balance, curves, selective color etc.) so that when you want to change the coloring of pictures, you don't have to keep typing in the settings for each individual picture?

Tutorial #4 [Yoshiko Endo]

I've made another icon I'm proud of and decided to put together a tutorial for it. I hope it's of some use to you. :)

Turn this: into this:

Made with PSCS -- not translatable to other programs since it involves Selective Coloring [sorry if you don't like that :P]
Level of difficulty, I think is around medium -- you need to have a basic knowledge of PS and the way it works because I'm not going to explain how to get to these things -- if you want to know, ask, but yeah, I won't explain it in the tutorial.

I hope it's of some help to some of you =\ Let me know if you like it :3
