I have Gimp2 and Photoshop7

I'm still new to making my own animated icons. Simple instructions are much appreciated. :)

Open Type is a font format (it has the .OTF or .TTF extention). One of its perks is that single font file can contain additional designs for the same character, like the script font in the picture above. And that is what I'm going to tell about.

Hopefully not a stupid question...

And hopefully not one I'll get in trouble for.

But could someone explain the difference between 'Opacity' and 'Fill'? Usually when I make icons, I always change the Opacity when I want to edit the effect a layer has, but sometimes, when I am trying a new tutorial, that person will change the Fill on a layer.

Is there a difference between the two? Does changing the % on one produce a different "effect" than if you changed it on the other?

I would assume so, but I honestly don't know. <3 Thank you for any obvious explanations.

Stargate Atlantis Tutorial

I was asked to write a tutorial for an icon that I entered for sga_icontest.

This tut shows you how to go from this to this: Photobucket

Made in PS CS5
Translatable? Yes - uses a curves layer and layer masks.
PSD? No!
