Subject:Text Help, Please?
Posted by:applejuiceart.
Time:2:42 pm.
Mood: frustrated.

Heyy, so I've just recently started making icons and I'm really having some trouble with making text look alright when I add it.
Other than text, I've got everything else down pat, but it just seems like once I add the text it just looks plain stupid.

Example:
 

I'm really having trouble.  If anyone knows of any good tutorials or has any suggestions/tips, they would be much appreciated.

Howdy do everyone..

I feel really really silly asking this question, but I'm stumped. I'm a big HUGE fan of icons so I want to start making my own. I've got the ideas, I've got Photoshop 10, I've got time.. I just can't figure out how to get the images to 100x100. Now wait.. I can get them to 100x100, but then they look squishy.

Isn't there a way to have unsquishy 100x100 images? :( Help.

Subject:Icon Table Generator update
Posted by:angelamaria.
Time:8:40 am.
I rolled out an update last night on my icon table generator. For those who might not know about it, the generator helps you post icons (or other similar photos) in batches on your Livejournal, similar to this one, for example. You just enter your URLs in a form, and it generates the HTML for you. There are currently 4 templates to choose from.

The update now allows you to include section headers in your icon post. This is useful for those multi-fandom icon posts ;) Sample output could be seen at this multi-fandom icon post of mine.

Today, I'm going to teach you to go from this to .

Hi, everyone. This is my first post. I was wondering how to select or just "single out" a certain object or area in an image to colorize? I use PSP7. For example, I'd like to add color to JUST the flower in this image. Thanks for any help you can provide.

I'm posting here about this because I thought a few members might be interested, however, if it's deemed too off-topic, or it's against the rules, or otherwise disruptive, please feel free to delete my post, or tell me so that I may delete it myself. :)

I've been wanting to put the LJ icons I create in table-format posting for some time now, but couldn't really be bothered with writing up tables again and again or copy-pasting groups of cells or something. I'm lazy that way. ;) So I ended up getting into geek mode for a few hours tonight and came up with this -- a script that takes a (preset or customized) template and inserts any number of icons to come up with, say, a table for all the icons for posting into LJ (removes newlines too, so it doesn't mess up your code ;) hehe). I'm not sure if anyone had already created such a script before, but in any case, I put it online since people might be interested in it as well.

You can see it at work in my latest batch of icons here. That particular template I used is liquid -- the number of columns adjust according to the width of the browser window -- but the script can also do set tables. :) I have a few (boring) pre-sets made, previews of which are also available on the site; there's also a how-to on-site in case you wish to further customize the template it generates.

If you run into problems with regards to usage of the script and you're certain it's a bug, please feel free to post at my icon journal and let me know so I can fix it. :) Of course, any other sort of comment and the like is very much welcome. :) ♥

Hey all! I'm a girl who's skirting around the idea of Iconists Anon... So I come bearing a question!

I'm really quite poor, since the store I worked at shut down. But I was wondering if it would be worth it for me to buy Photoshop Elements for making icons? I really just want it to layer stuff.. I'm a collector of bases and text brushes... would this work for that?

Thanks-
