[Mod Post] We Help Those Who Help Themselves...

Hi gang,

I would like to issue a couple of reminders about posting.

"This coloring?" is not an adequate question. AT A MINIMUM, you need to tell us (a) what program or programs you are going to be using (and that is in the rules, folks), and (b) what kind of base images you are going to be starting from.

We as a community are not here to provide lists of numbers or pre-made *.psd files. Please provide indicators that you would like to learn something when asking for assistance from 27,000+ community members.

Also, when you have questions you need the mod team to answer, please use the contact e-mail address provided in our userinfo. We check it several times per week and respond as best we are able. Comment notifications to old posts are spotty (particularly since the server move), and will not necessarily get you an answer within a month or at all. (In addition, several that I've belatedly received have been totally inappropriately located on posts where they don't belong.)

In other community upkeep news, I will be gone with no computer or phone access from December 4th through December 14th so please be good to aquamarcia and yueni.

And finally, I will give fabulous Internet cookies to anyone who makes me a good mod-mode icon.

Happy Thanksgiving to Americans and happy day-off-from-Americans to everyone else,

Backgrounds?

I've searched and maybe I'm blind but I can not find anything on how to make a tiling background on photo shop. Sure I use the offset but it doesn't tile correctly. To make this on topic, I also want to know so I can make it into a pattern for icons. I want something like this
a skylit drive - this isn't the end

this coloring?



does anyone know how to get this coloring or anything similar? (I don't know who made the icon, so if it's yours, please tell me so I can credit you!)
I use Photoshop CS3 Extended and this is the original.
Don't you worry boy it's a waste of time

(no subject)

Screencaps

So instead of downloading massive zips I decided to make my own caps for my icons.
I use the automatic cap function in VLC media player to cap a certain scene.
I save the caps as .jpg and they come out like this
Collapse )
In png they come out fine but then instead of capping that whole scene it would only give me 1 or 2 caps that aren't usable.

So
How can I get my jpg caps better
or
How can I get it to cap the whole scene when selecting png
