Question.

So sometimes when I'm making an icon, I'll throw in a texture, but oh, it's too dark, so I'll change it to a lower opacity.
But instead of the color becoming lighter, the texture is striped with these . . . scanlines.


here, this is what I'm talking about

Can anyone help me with this? ( I'm using Photoshop 7, by the way )

try putting a screen layer of the base under the texture one to lighten it up :) i works for me when the texture is being mean

Thank you for the suggestion, though all I get is this:

what have you set the the texture to, overlay?

or you could try a layer of the base set at screen or something over hte texture

Well right now it's set on multiply.

But doing that doesn't actually rid me of the lines, and it completely disrupts my coloring. ;;

There's a known problem with setting a layer to multiply that may be solved by patching PS7.

Indeed, that is the problem. And I did a dance for joy when I finally succeeded in patching PS7. If the update tells you it can't find the .exe, try reinstalling PS7 (it shouldn't disrupt your added brushes and things).

I worked on this for two hours last Saturday. I was ready for a hug-me jacket by the end of the ordeal... ^.^

Haha, thanks for the tip. ^.^
I was trying to patch it for quite a while yesterday, and when it constantly said it couldn't find the .exe . . . yeah, I was about ready to rip out my hair. xD

Well, my problem lay with my registration key. I won't go further into that, but it took forever to fix. Let me know by email if you have a similar issue. ^.^;

Once I got the patch installed, though, it totally cleared up the scanlines issue.

oddly enough, can I steal this and use it as a texture?

I was thinking that myself!

I'm going to take it, too, if that's ok...It's got to be frustrating to have it just not turn out right, but it looks really cool from the outside. I'll credit! ^_^

I wish I could help you solve your problem, but I don't know anything about PS 7. :-P I'm hanging out at the bottom of the PS evolution ladder with Elements :D

you have Elements? And you call that the bottom of the evolution ladder? ...I only have PS6! *cries* I can't seem to get CS off my brother, not for lack of trying though.
