I know this has been asked a million times, and I actually went through the tutorials and could not seem to find what I was looking for. I'm working on a project for work that needs to use very specific colors, but when I transfer the file from Adobe Illustrator into photoshop or try to save in photoshop, the colors are faded out. We use CS2 in the office. Thanks so much to anyone who can point me in the right direction.

Tutorial #1: Full Moon

Program: Adobe Photoshop CS3
Level: Easy/Basic

Okay, an LJ friend has been asking me to do some Photoshop tutorials because she's learning how to make avatars and stuff.  Recently, she mentioned spreading these tutorials to a community that we're on together.  I thought I would share it here, too.

I've never made a tutorial before, so please comment to let me know what I could change/make better/more concise/etc.

I'll also warn you that this tutorial is very basic.  Because of the one community I originally geared this tutorial for, I am anticipating that there will be people using it who have never used Photoshop before, so this tutorial has a lot of very basic steps that I'm sure a lot of people won't need, and doesn't introduce anything too complicated for the first time out of the gates.
(I'll do more complicated ones later.)
[Beginning Icon Makers, this is a good tutorial for you!]

Please let me know if this tutorial is useful or not, and also if I should continue to post tutorials here!  I hope to do at least two a month...

[Please let  me know if I didn't upload this correctly again!  (Thanks for letting me know!) Is it possible to flag the rule modification to the User Info or Guidelines or Posting Rules pages or something?  I hadn't seen the message last night when I was posting this, and I had tried to make sure to meet guidelines, too!  Also, am I allowed to use tags that aren't already listed, or can we only use those?  I wanted to add a tag that said "Beginners" or "Basics" or something along those lines, but didn't know if I could.  Thanks!]

[Mod Post] Pushing the Poll Again!

Last round, I swear. :)

I know things slip through the community fast, so I'd like to re-publicize the demographics poll from last weekend, and encourage anyone who hasn't taken it yet to take it!

I'll be pushing it a few more times in the next day or two, and then I'll let it rest. Since according to our userinfo we have about 20,000 people watching the community, and 28,000 members overall, I'd like to have more than a few hundred responses before I go and call it a representative sample. ;)

The first-ever icon_tutorial user demographics poll!

K, excuse my really, really, stupid question:

I was using this tutorial and I was perfectly fine until I had to use a brush that looked like this-

I dunno where to download it, or how to turn it into a brush. I'm using PS Elements 6

Problem solved! Thanks!

Still having trouble with this...

I'm trying to figure out how to do "not-so-plain" text in inner & outer glows? Sorry if I sound ridiculous, but I can't figure it out!

Anyone that helps = I will love you forever!
