i have a question. i checked through the memories for a few hours reading everything that i thought may apply to my problem at hand. alas, i didn't find the answers i'd hoped for.
i'm basically doing icon making without any skills or knowledge, i've lucked out learning to do what i've done thus far without any help, manuals or tutorials. probably why my icons look like they do. *cough* ;)
i recently aquired photoshop 7 and paint shop pro 6. i have JASC animation shop as well (it's the only of the programs that i'm actualy semi-familiar with). now, my issue is with using templates and getting to learn how transparancies work.
i know what you're thinking, you're thinking, idiot, we have those answers in the memories section. i did see the related tutorials in there for what it is i'm trying to do but they seem to be written for people who already have a good grasp on how the programs work. i tried to follow what was already there and after some hours gave up, i just wasn't understanding or following along.
can anyone point me in the direction of step by step information that would be easy for someone to understand who is just starting to learn the programs? i've looked all over but can't seem to find anything... and by looking at my icon i'm sure you can all see i need some serious tutorial help. :D
thanks in advance. :)
