Screencapping Help...

I'm using the KMPlayer to screencap an episode of Doctor Who and I'm having a problem. At first all of the caps are normal but then after a news program is shown within the episode, there's a green bar on the right hand side of the rest of the screencaps. Does anyone know why this is happening and if I can do anything to prevent it? Thanks in advance!

ETA: Three examples are under the cut.

help with avi file...

Hi I'm extreeemely new to all this icon making. I wanted to make an animated .gif using a movie clip. It's already in AVI format, but when i try to open it in Photoshop it doesn't register. I've tried other files that are .avi and they all work, but the one file i need doesn't. I downloaded a converter but any other format i convert it to doesn't work either. Is there something ele that could be going wrong with this?
Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.

Yellow colour balance tutorials..

A lot of the pictures I want to use for iconing have a really yellowish colour to them, especially the skin tones.
Most of the tutorials posted are for dark and blueish images. Does anyone have any good colouring tutorials for use on yellow images?

Using PSCS3. Thanks : )

Rain Effect


I recently got Jasc Animation Shop and have had Adobe Photoshop CS3 for a long time. I want to be able to make all kinds of animated effects on icons so I was wondering how you make the rain effect using the programs I have. The example icon is an old icon of mine that I made back when I had Imageready which I obviously don't have anymore. If anyone can explain to me  shortly in detail how to make the rain effect I'd be very thankful! (I did check the tutorials of this community but found none for AS and APCS3).

How to use textures in Photoshop

Hi guys,

I'd like to learn how to put textures and brushes on icons in Photoshop. Can you please point me to some useful tutorials? Ones that aren't too complicated?

I use PS CS2 but I can only manage basic coloring.

PS: I'm not looking for "take texture x and paste it to icon", I'm looking for tutorials that explain where are textures in PS situated and what to do if I want to put it on an icon, the process.

Thanx in advance.

EDIT: Solved, thanx everyone.
