memory lapse

Hi all, I was wondering if anyone could help me.



I made this graphic for an icon a long time ago and i'm trying to do a similar effect again. I've nearly got the colouring down with selective colour (although not quite the same) but what I can't figure out is how I got the photo to look sort of matte and yet still quite sharp. It's driving me nuts. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! :)

Also, I'm using Photoshop 7.

i've gone through the memories a couple of times but couldn't find what i needed; it's possible i wasn't looking in the wrong place. anyway, my problem is copying and pasting in adobe photoshop cs. i was able to do it on ps7 on my old pc but now i have a mac and while it's much nicer to make graphics on, i've had some trouble figuring things out. i googled and all i got was "edit > copy; edit > paste" well that doesn't work for me. i've tried the apple command as well, but all to no avail. i'm really hoping someone can help me.

eta: i've also had some trouble with brushes as well, i read a post in the memories (i would link to it but it's no longer in my tabs, sorry) and some of the screecaps the OP had uploaded were nowhere to be found and it was for ps7, not cs. if anyone could help with this as well, it'd be highly appreciated!

thanks in advance!

Alright, I have looked through pages and pages to find help with my problem. But none of them have yet compaired to my dilemma.

I have animated icons I want to use here on LJ but they're over 40KB. Every post I've gone through, people use imageready, etc. I use Jasc Animation Shop . Can anybody help me figure out how to do the color thing? I know it has too many colors and what not, I just don't know how to decrease them or w/e. I'm desperate. Thank you in advance :)
