legend of the seeker ➝ i want the sword.

(no subject)

 Hi everyone.
I have photoshop CS4 ( on mac ), and I want to know how to resize a gif. In fact I find one made by someone, but he's too large, I don't know how to make it smaller. Plus I think that on my version of photoshop, i don't have imageready :/ 
Does someone can help me please ?

I recently downloaded GIMP for its animation capabilities, and a friend requested that I make a vintage color GIF for her. I like to use exclusion layers for this, and I know there's a way to "fake" exclusion layers. I'm just not sure what it is. Help?

Editing .gifs in PS CS3 in Mac OSX using Fireworks CS3


With Adobe CS3 onwards, apparently ImageReady has been phased out. As I've been using it for a really long time to make .gifs, when I was forced to make the change I had to find alternative ways of making .gif icons in PS.

There are already existing ways to open/edit .gifs in PS CS3 in Windows and Mac, however changing the animated GIF file into a .mov file causes some loss in quality.

This is the technique i've been using to make my own .gif icons in Mac and involves some manual layer-creating. I'm sure there must be a more efficient way, and if you know of one, please share. It's just that this is the only way i've found to work for me.

Adobe Pixel Question

Hi all,
I just upgraded from Photoshop 7 to CS2. In the older version I was using, I had no problem working close up with pixels using the pencil tool (ex. tiny icon designs, dolls, small icon borders, pixel text). Since I have upgraded, I find that the 1px size the pencil tool comes in is showing up double the size it did in PS7 (and also Microsoft Paint). I've tried adjusting ratios, zoom, different tools, etc but to no avail.

How can I get the pencil size to match up again with the older version size? This is an example of the before and after sizes. (left - Adobe 7/Paint, right - CS2)
