Tut list

Hey guys, needed a little help. There was a tut list that had either a majority (or maybe all, I can't remember) of animated icons (ie, disney cartoons, anime, pixar) but I can't find it. Does anyone know where I can find it?

Thanks :D

Sharpening Using High Pass Tool

Sometimes the sharpening tool on Photoshop just doesn't cut it. I don't always sharpen icons, but sometimes they need it. I accidentally stumbled upon a tutorial directing people how to use high pass to sharpen images. I thought it was amazing and knew I had to share it with you all!

So, from this: you have this: rather than this:

I exaggerated the bad sharpening on purpose.

Program: Photoshop Elements 4
Steps: Two? Three?
Difficulty: Easy peasy.
Translatable: I think so. All you need is overlay and high pass.
PSD: Nope

I'm not very good at explaining my reasoning, mainly because when I color icons I just fiddle around until it looks right. I'll usually add steps out of order, and so when I write a tutorial for it it's not at all in the order I made the icon. But I hope this helps. :) (plus it was a nice distraction from studying for finals!)
