refine edge tool

this is just a basic quick example of what happens.

•icon tutorial 002: saturated/colorful coloring
»i know, lmao, been obsessed with writing out tutorials. idek, i mean, it's fun. it is, honestly. but that might just be the impossibly big photoshop nerd in me talking, since i get to explain and elaborate on every tool and every theory i use. anyway, since this is a really (and i mean really) simple coloring, i thought i'd just throw it out here!

program/translatable: icon done in photoshop cs4 extended, but will probably work in gimp, psp etc etc since all you basically need is curves.
.psd: if requested. :)
difficulty: 4 steps, very easy to work with. you need to know where to find curves, basically.

How to put Text in Animated Gifs

There are a lot of tutorials on how to make animated gifs, but none that i can find which include how to add text to those animations.

My tutorial explains how I go about adding text where a person is talking in an animation so that people can understand what is being said.

Program : Photoshop CS3
Difficulty : Intermediate, some basic knowledge of photoshop assumed but hopefully beginners can follow it too.
Warning: lots of images and quite a long tutorial under the cut

This is the first tutorial i've written like this so be kind :D + its getting late in my part of the world
