I made this icon last week and the file size is 5.61 kb.
Then today I made this icon and the file size is like, 55.2 kb (and unusable for LJ.)

As you can see, the icons are basically the same, so does anyone know what setting is causing this, and how I can fix it? Help is MASSIVLEY appreciated. Thanks.

Stuck on hand tool?

I opened Photoshop and none of my tools were working and the cursor is the hand tool. I can't restart my computer because I have an important file downloading and if I restart, I'll lose it. So can I do anything other than restarting to get my program back to normal. I tried closing it and opening it again and nothing.

sharpening in CS

I've just switched from GIMP to Photoshop CS and I've got the hang of pretty much everything but there's just one small problem...

How do you change the amount it sharpens the image?

Because when I click sharpen it sharpens them too much, the same with sharpen edges...

So is there any way of changing the value?

Any help is much appreciated =)

Tutorial #5

Using PSCS2.
Not translatable; involves Selective Colors.
Intermediate level tutorial, I think.
Works best on bright icons w/ a lot of white. (Feel free to try it on other kinds of pictures?)

I have PS7. Every time I go to get a HQ image, or am just looking for images, OR when I go to save something I've made, PS decides to close. This has gotten very frustrating!
Please help me asap. Thanks in advance =)

Sometimes, caps are just too darn dull and yellow and you can't make the skin turn out well. Well, here's something to try next time that happens to you. Examples of caps at the post.
