Help please?

I need help please. Could someone tell me how to make only a part of an icon black and white?
I have an icon which is a frog on an orange back ground. I want to keep the frog's colour while making the b/g black and white. I am sure this is possible as I have seen icons done in this style but have no idea how to do it myself? :(

How do you make: slender icons?

I use: Photoshop 7 and just recently, I learned how to make your very basic bases, they look right and all...

My question: does anyone know how to make icons, like the icons you see in this journal?

The bases... they're... slender, how can I take a picture and make it look like that, regardless of the picture.

Is it a cropping trick or what? :)

Thanks to anyone who can help.

sorry for the lack of sense in my words,

the icon i made looks like this:

how can i make it (or any other picture look less basic); like this:

Would anyone know a way to achieve this kind of colorin without using selective coloring? I tried following the tutorial that was made with it, but it's basically all selective color layers. I also tried to use some Hue/Saturation/Lightness layers, but it didn't turn out the same.

The icon and tutorial were made by

The tutorial that went with the icon can be found here.

This is the original:

I asked the maker and she said she didn't know much about PSP, so I come here. :]
Any help is greatly appreciated. :) I use PSP X

Photoshop CS Issues

I'm not sure if anyone here can help me out but I'm having some problems with my Photoshop CS. Every time I go to put a brush onto the header I'm working on I get a program error message and Photoshop closes. I've tried two separate brushes from two different brush sets and both of them have caused Photoshop to shut down. Has this happened to anyone else? If so what can I do to fix it?

EDIT: I have no problems when I use my brushes on a banner that's 350x80 or a journal icon but when it comes to a banner that's 760x350 Photoshop shuts down every time I try to use a brush.
