I'm not sure who tought me this but I don't think the tut was posted her so I''m going to have a go at explain how to do this.

Some of you might of seen my avatars like these



Ok well find the image you'd like to practise on this tut. I choose mine as this one



Well open in Imageready/Photoshop crop and resize it to 100X100 or whatever resoultions you want.

Now pick the square Marquee tool and zoom in on your avatar after resizing it. I usually zoom in alot so I know what I'm doing

Now that you've zoomed in get the square marquee tool and don't highlight then edge bring it away from the edge so start it off a bit near the edge. Sometimes you have to start near the middle edge.

Now that you've done the press ctrl+shift+i

When you get it highlighted (the the picture will have the square in it the outside and the desired place you want to stay the same colour it is) Go to Image-Adjustments-Brightness Contrast.

When the Brightness and Contrast come up I make the brightness 100 percent bright or you can do -100 so it goes dark.

After you've done that and selected ok go ctrl+shift+i again till it has the place you started off with. Now find a light colour in the picture, pick that colour and go to Edit-Stroke-1 or 2px of that colour.

Then after that just select the whole picture with the square marquee tool and pic the darker colour in the picture and do another stroke.

If you want to add text I usually add it near the edge on the right hand side.

Save as a Png24. and Volia here you have it


I'm really sorry I couldn't supply pictures. This sounds stupid but some keys on my keyboard aren't working PrtScn is one of them I'm really sorry!

But other then that I hope you enjoyed this tut

I'm in the processing of making another signature tutorial using CS3 now, you guys want me to upload it on different sites or would you rather me make it into a torrent
[rather upload to different sites as i can then use the same tut on another forum]

Uploading it to 2-3 host sites should be ok.
I've done the same when I made a few hundred avy's in my thread.
Eventually the links expired of course, but if people just point out they've expired I just uploaded them back.
It's not exactly perfect, but it works.

On that note, whatever system is convenient to you is fine.

Don't get the wrong idea,
You are free to present your tutorial whichever way you want
As long it helps somebody, I don't think anybody has a problem.
-------
Happy tutorial making.
Post Scriptum

The only strict rule of the thread is it has
to be made by you. ^_^ Sorry for the
confusion, the post regarding Megaupload
were meant to point out some flaws in Megas
services Wz might have not been aware of.

There is no rule as such, feel free to upload
to it if it's more convenient to you, you did
take the time to make the tutorial we can't
really ask for more. ^__^

I think it's more of an issue with optimizing it when saving.
See this tutorial. (it has pictured)

The check list is like primer for the optimization.
It's meant to get you the highest quality, but you still might need to tweak it down when saving it as .gif.

Hallo again!

Today I'm going to show you how to earse text off something. People who have alot of experince just vector. I do it the begginer way and kinda hard with the clone stamp.

I'll be using this picture



Firstly after you've opened it. zoom in twice where the text is. Next you should select the eraser tool * make sure it is a bold dark circle* and erase all the text on the image. Now after you've done that select the clone stamp tool and press alt+click *click with your mouse of course* and select an area that is close to were the text was.

Contuine doing this till every space is fill in. Now there wil lbe spaces were there was text and no lines. You can either do the pen or line tool for this and estimate how long to make it.

Volia here is the *cough* bad result. Sorry about it, doing my French assignment



Again keys aren't working on my keyboard so no screenshots again!

There's no right way or wrong way... it's totally up to you. I myself like the magic eraser tool plus rendering manually. What ever way is easiest and the most efficient. Any over erasure and I apply the clone stamp tool to recover erased parts. Depending on the render, I can use the magnetic lasso tool and outline the whole render itself and cut it out one time... then do some maintenance on recovering cut out parts and what not... It's all up to the person doing the job.

You could use layer masks you know and brush in and out ~
There's also Ctrl + Alt + Z

why do people always do it the hard way? in most cases the good old background eraser trick will work

Edit// To make it easy for Cats

Tut On Detexting
Um just to add onto this (I'm pretty new at photoshop but I think sometimes this way is easier because with clone stamp you sometimes need to redo the reference point over and over)

You can also use the Eyedropper tool to select the color and just go old fashioned brush tool and cover over the text

Hope I made myself clear

Trying to make an avatar using an .mkv file. Followed the directions on the first page, but noticed that in the ffshow video decoder config there wasn't a format that supported .mkv. Has the code changed? Anything? Anything? Bueller?
