You know, it almost baffles me how no one thought of this before, self included.

Discuss techniques, styles, banner and avatar making with Adobe's outstanding program Photoshop, whether it be from version 6,7, or CS, or even other updates of it once they come. All that I ask is:

Keep it Photoshop / GIMP related.
Keep info truthful, such as tutorials, links to sources and the like.

Any really good links to sites posted in this thread I'll gladly place in this post for easy reference.

Thoughts: =[

First, you need to extract the ABR files from the files you downloaded. Then, copy them once you do.

Go to the drive where you have Photoshop installed. Then, go through the folders in this order:

Program Files -> Adobe -> Photoshop -> Presets -> Brushes

You should see some of the already installed brush sets there. Just paste the ones you downloaded into there. Now, even though they're in there, you still need to load them in Photoshop to be able to use them.

Load Photoshop and click on the brush tool. Now click on the drop down menu where you select the brush you want and the size. Up in the top right corner will be a tiny circled arrow. Click on it, and you'll get a really big menu. Just go down to Load Brushes.

Once you click on the ABR file you want to load, you'll likely get a message "Replace current brushes with the brushes from "Named Brush" ABR?

Clicking:

Ok - This will remove all the brushes that are currently on the drop down menu, and replace them will the new brushes you selected.

Apend - This will add the new brushes to the list, and leave the old ones alone.

If you find your brush menu is getting rather large and cluttered, just click on the arrow in the drop down menu again and click on "Reset Brushes." Just click ok and you'll brush menu will be reset again.

Hope that helped.

Solid Snake Designs (http://ssdesigns.proboards17.com/)

It is a forum that has a lot of links to brush sites and tutorials. You can get help there for all your photoshop problems and tips and stuff.

And to smooth those edges P79 I would zoom up and use a 1 pixel brush to fill in the empty spots on the edges. Just fill in the right spots until you get what you want. The blur tool doesn't do a good job at all.

03-03-2005, 02:07 AM
that's because png does preserve transparency. it actually does so better than gifs in that certain pngs allow for semi-transparency. therefore, round appears round rather than jagged...as certain pixels that help accentuate the curve aren't completely transparent.

pngs are generally better quality than gifs in still images. the only downside to png is that it doesn't allow animation.

Mechaflame

But, if I didn't finish it, I would save it as a Photoshop file, so I can finish it later on.

To do transparent all you have to do it open a new document that's transparent. there is an option there that says white background, just switch that to transparent.

And anyone know if you can organize brushes somehow? I have like a million brushes and I can't find my favorite ones because they are all scattered everywhere. too bad you can't seperate them into folders and select them from there.

It's simple! Go to www.pixel2life.com (http://www.pixel2life.com). Go to Photoshop (on the left side). Then, type in "lightning", "thunder", or "storm" in the search bar. Search for it, and there should be many tutorials on how to make lightning bolts. Sorry I couldn't tell you myself. I'll just let pixel2life handle that. :wink:

Check if they're actually still on your computer. Let's say you store your brushes in folder x. Look in folder x, if its still there, alright. Go to photoshop and load them up.



if they were actually deleted.... sucks for you.

Yeah most of the brushes are still in that folder, but a lot of them were before I saved them in a folder so i can't get them back. I kind of freaked out before I realized they were saved in a folder though. :oops:

a few banners? Hmm.. I've seen like one or two.....

*COUGHMECOUGH* (edit: nm; while I was the first that I know of to have done in on this forum, I see that Rukario has one of those banners as well)


alright, I don't know how to do it for other formats (as I've never really had to) but for .mov files, just open the file up in imageready, and I'm sure you can figure it out from there


edit: Just a note. If you're trying to manipulate a movie that has a high resolution, and you're trying to get many frames, and you're also trying to get a long clip of the movie, you might suffer from massive memory failure


another note: make it .08 seconds per frame or more, otherwise it messes up in firefox. Well, it really messes up in IE, since firefox is always right :tongue:

Oh ok, now I see. depending on the pictrue, there are lots of different ways to get rid of the white background. Try the Magic Eraser first of all. That would be right clicking the eraser tool and then selecting magic eraser. Usually, this doesn't get all the white off, so you may have to blend the white into the background by blurring it or something.

The method I use the most is to copy merged the background, past it as a new layer, put your image behind it, and erase parts of the new layer so that only the image shows, and not the white space. This also give you a nice belnding effect. Use a soft brush when erasing though.

Sounds like a decent idea. I'm sure if everyone contributed a few brushes, it would turn into something really big.


But then I could just imagine the total overkill of the brushes in every single banner. It'd be like DA brushes, but even more overused, even less creative, and even worse-looking.

It's called hosting images. Go to Imageshack.us and it'll have a button named "browse", click it and search for the sprite you want to host. Then after you've picked the image you want to host, just click "host it". Then copy the url with the text next to it that says "Direct link to image". Post the link here at PE2K with the tags around it and you have your hosted sprite.

I got a problem with Photoshop.
Suddenly all the tools except the brush tool decide, they don't want to work. They were working fine earlier. But they just stoped working all of a sudden. :[

Hey, why does Photobucket always convert my PNGs into JPGs? It's making me look like a total n00b. Aside from the fact that I am one, it's also making my sprites look bad. Someone please help!

OMG Paint :eek: ? No chance, I guess. Go and try GIMP (http://www.gimp.org/); it`s a freeware utility with functionality comparable with commercial products. Actually, it`s sorta clone of Photoshop, but not as stable, so beware. Or, tell how large you want the sprite and I`ll resize it for you. :biggrin:

1. Get Photoshop.
2. Use the "Image Size" option in "Image" menu.
Unfortunately, the first step is harder. :biggrin:

You need something that handles GIF animation. Photoshop ImageReady is supposed to do this, but I haven`t got it to work yet. :oops: PaintShop`s Animation Shop was good at it, but I no longer have it. Actually, I`m planning to check Download.com for some kind of a simple free anim utility; I`ll be sure to post it here if I find one. :happy:

You know, it almost baffles me how no one thought of this before, self included.

Discuss techniques, styles, banner and avatar making with Adobe's outstanding program Photoshop, whether it be from version 6,7, or CS, or even other updates of it once they come. All that I ask is:

Keep it Photoshop related.
Keep info truthful, such as tutorials, links to sources and the like.

Any really good links to sites posted in this thread I'll gladly place in this post for easy reference.
