This tutorial shows how to make an avie that looks like a button. The shadow effect is a little off on mine, but if you make the button part smaller than the 94x94 that I suggested in the tutorial the shadow effect will work better.

[ icon_tutorial question #1: outward-to-center blur ]

First of all, I would just like to say what a great community this is! I had to place digital printmaking/web design on the shelves a while back, and thanks to this little pool of talent, I've been practicing getting back in the loop.

Onto my question: How do I create a blur effect like the one that's in the image Collapse )

I'm trying to create a blur that goes around the image (in a circle) and gradually fades out as you get to the center of the image (center circle). I'm pretty sure there was a filter I used for this when I had PSP, but I now use Photoshop CS3.

Icon Tutorial #5 feat. Takanori and Mima-rin

Program: Photoshop CS
Steps: 10
Translatable: No, has selective color and gradient map
PSD: Yes
Works best with good quality images. (and im not just saying that to annoy you). Carefull with images of people that have too much red/magenta in their skin! This tutorial works better with anime/cartoons rather than manga/comics.
