Sorry, if I shouldn't ask this here, but are there any active request communties, where you can request a graphic from someone or a group of people? I want a 730X312 banner for my forum.
So a while back I asked my mum if she could get me the latest Photoshop because I saw these amazing icons and I wanted to make them so she got me Photoshop CS3 and I've played around with it for a couple of months and I am absolutly hopeless at it. Can anyone help me find a tutorial where it showes you how to start from scratch? I havn't even got the cropping part down yet. I've had a look at the memories but I couldn't find one. Unless I just missed it.
Can someone help me learn how to make or link me to tutorials for icons like what I'm posting with? I'm extremely new to Photoshop. Thanks!
Ok, this is not exactly an icon question but since many of you make videos too, I am positive there's someone out there who can help me...
My boss came to the office this afternoon and told me to convert a video file to a smaller size, preferrably still avi but that's not as important as these...
The problem are the following attributes the video MUST have:
1) Most important of all: a compression method that EVERY computer with WINDOWS could open, no matter if it's Windows1998 or XP or Vista. So no XVid, no DivX and things like that, just codecs that are pre-installed on every Windows computer that's out there (ok, let's say from Win1998 to Vista including NT)
2) maximum filesize of ~20Mb (original is ~100Mb)
3) still good quality of the picture
4) no audio
5) I have to finish this task like yesterday (ASAP!!)
6) I almost forgot, it needs to be possible to open this file within a presentation which will be opened with "Powerpoint viewer"...
The original video was recorded with a digital camera.
I have the full edition of "Total Video Converter", I have some other free converters "Alive video converter, Stoik video converter and Any video converter" but if you got suggestions for good and free programs that would be great.
Any further questions??
PLEASE, any suggestion is greatly appreciated!! And the faster the better because I NEED to finish it tomorrow morning which is in ~12 hours.
Oh how much I love tasks that your boss hands you and where he expects a result by yesterday... *me is annoyed*
THANK YOU SO MUCH!! :)
Finally this is over! :) 3 Weeks of free time.
Well, we somehow managed to get it working with mpg format MPEG1 encoding.
I found out why all my trials didn't work! DESHAKER!! The colleague ran a deshaker on these files and somehow Win98 and 2000 don't get that to work. My boss is not happy about "no deshaker" and is so certain he'll find a way but well, he'll see that it will be hard. ;)
THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR ALL YOUR HELP!!
I was wondering if anyone could point me to a tutorial on how to make a regular pictures look like it's been drawn. i did a banner once with for an rpg character using a model and the affect look like it was a painting almost, i haven't been able to do it again. i was hoping maybe there was a tutorial for doing the effect. i've looked in the memories and wasn't sure what to look for and didn't seen anything for something like that.
