Hi there, I have a question for all the lovely icon makers out there.

I have a picture (here) ... UNFORTUNATELY, the quality is quite bad. I was wondering if anyone might have some suggestions towards improving it for icon use?

Much appreciated.

EDIT! Forgot to say that I'm using PS7.

If you are using it for an icon I would make it the 100 by 100 or whatever size is your choice first. Then I would use the blur tool for any of the too sharp areas and use the lasso tool to sharpen areas that need it. Honestly, taking any crappy picture and reducing it to the icon size first always helps.

My trouble is, once I start working with it at 100x100, the poor quality seems to get steadily more and more obvious, the more I try to do with it, you know?

I dunno, it doesn't look like it needs much else done to it. It already looks like you've edited it (it looks like it has a color layer or two, plus an overlay).

Cool, I'll mess around with that. No guarantees I'm competant enough to get good results, but we shall see! xD

Thank you!
