Outlining text

I'm using PSPX.

I've been having a problem with outlining text. I've been following this tutorial. I followed the directions very carefully and made sure everything looked the same in the pictures. Whenever I try to paste it as a new selection, I always get white text on a white background without a black outline. I've done this before and it was fine...but now it doesn't seem to be working.

Does anyone have any ideas?

Help: Snow Globe Icon tuts?


Anyone know of any tutorials to make Snow Globe icons? I checked around but didn't see any. I've always thought they'd look cool but they came out looking more like psychic crystal balls than snow globes. lol

Here's what I could do:

If anyone knows of a tut, or if someone has tips on how to make them better, I'd appreciate it lots! I use PSP7/AS. I have IR but don't know my way around it.

Thank you.

Paintshop Pro XI Problem

I've been a PSP user for a couple of years now, and I have never encountered the problem that I have currently ran into. Oh, I checked the memories, other help resources both with the program and online, and can't seem to find an answer.

When I want to edit a picture, a hand comes up - and won't let me erase, move, or crop an amage. It's incredibly irrating, seeing as I can't figure out how to get rid of it. When I looked around, it said the hand was used for zooming or image mapping, but it won't let me get rid of it.

Sorry, if this doesn't belong here - I just didn't know where else to post this. Any help would be appreciated.

Can some one please direct me towards a tutorial for this image or can someone make one. I really like the textures and the movement. Its from the new ipod advertisments. Thanks!

Brownish colouring

I've been seeing this sort of brownish colouring around, like on this icon by neversleeps:

I've been trying to achieve the effect, but I haven't been able to. Does anyone have any suggestions or links to tutorials in which you can achieve something similar?

I'm happy for any help I get, thanks in advance! :)

Hello I'm interested in this coloring:

The only thing I can realize is, that the person who made it uses Gaussian blur but what else??

I use Photoshop 7.0 and Paint Shop Pro 9.0
Hope you can help me
