I'm so confused. I just entered a LIMS with an icon I really liked, and came dead last - all my crits say that it's too dark to see, and really badly oversharpened. Here it is:

Now, I don't see any oversharpening at all, and I can see it just fine... I've had the oversharpening thing said to me before, as well. I'm not blind, I can tell when an image is oversharpened, so I'm starting to think that it's my monitor screwing things up for me. This thing was apparently 'on its last legs' when I got it - about seven years ago. And I totally can't afford a new one. Is there any way I can fix it? :\

Hey, I've a small request...

I could've sworn there was a tutorial flying around with how to delete the background off some people cleanly.

I.e. Someone on a white background, and I want that entire white wall to be deleted cleanly, leaving a transparent bg so I can blend it with other pics easily.

Could you point me in the right direction?

I know how to use the magic wand, but it's really tedious and I'm sure there's an easier way. I use PS CS2

Thanks so much!

Light Textures on Black & White Tutorial

Made with Photoshop 6.0, but I imagine it is translatable. If anything isn't clear, please just ask!

I've had a couple people ask me about the light effects in my icons, and also, how to use light textures. So here's a quick tutorial on one way to use light textures, complete with a brief bit on making black and white icons. (I like light textures on all sorts of icons, but find them most striking on black and white.)
