Ahh, thx Nanook...
Coreyko
The thing in my situation is how to upload it to imageshack. Thats where my confusion comes in

(From a couple months ago when I posted something like this)
Albino
Move the picture to your desktop.

Go to imageshack.

Click on "Choose File"

Find the file on your desktop.

Click "Upload"

Scroll down the page to find your codes.

No

But if you do it saves all your images together, so you can see 'em all
Coreyko
Hmmm it appears that nothing comes up with the "choose files" thing and it seems like nothing happens without registering.

Coreyko

Absolutely, nothing can beat it.

Ok. Quick question, what's a render and why do you use it?
FX
A render just a picture, like the one in your sig:

Nanook
Photoshop is the industry standard for photo editing and image manipulation, you will not find anything better.

Ok, so I made a transparent sig, I saved it, but it doesn't stay transparent. How can you save it so it still stays transparent?

Don't save it as a jpg wink.gif

Only GIF and PNG (though not Alpha Transparency in IE dry.gif ) support transparency

Save it as PNG for high quality but Internet Explorer fucks it up
Save it as GIF for all user use but worse quality
BreathMints
Ok thanks.
Mekstizzle
.Gifs dont give that much of a worse quality. Just make sure when 'saving for web' that you optimize it for 75/250Kb (depending on wether its a sig or avatar) and make sure that 256 colour is being used......

PNG

GIF

user posted image

Both support transparency...similair results...except .gif works with IE aswell......gif also has lower filesize...

here is how to optimize .gifs...might help...wink.gif



[center]File > Save for Web

user posted image

Click on small arrow and 'optimize to filesize' and choose either 75k or 250k (depending on sig or avatar)

http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y285/iMec...itled-3copy.jpg

Once optimized check that 256 colours are being used....so that maximum quality is acheived...(we also optimize so that other advanced settings are put in.....i think)

How do you make scan lines?? I have used them before but I made them by just making a line going across the entire image and that took forever. Thanks in advance.
noiz
If you have photoshop, do the following to get the scanline effect:

New Document (Ctrl+N)
Width 1pixel
Height 3 pixels
Zoom in to the maximum(1600%)
Choose the Pencil Tool(right click on the Brush Tool Icon)
Make it 1 pixel large, black color.
Click it one time on the middle of the picture, and it should look like this:
user posted image
Go to Edit>Define Pattern and that's it, scanline made.

Now on how to use it::
Open a sig/wall/whatever you're doing that requires the scanline, and do the following:
In the layers window click the icon on the bottom as higlighted on the pictureˇˇ
user posted image
Choose "Pattern" from the menu, and that's it. If nothing appears, jsut move the newly made layer on the top and it should be there, a 1 pixel scanline in perfect order over the whole picture.
---------------------

"Ok. Quick question, what's a render and why do you use it?"

A render, as known on the forum boards is actually a high-quality picture of a character, car, acter, just about anything, and it is already cut and made transparent so you don't have to bother doing it yourself. On the other hand, a render is actually a term used in 3d programs, and fractal programs, etc. Renders are those cool 3d pictures and fractals you see all over the net, constructions, models, it's all a render because the program has to render it to make it a jpeg.

Those are the crummy scan lines. If you pattern that, it would be 1 line black, then 2 lines clear...see what im saying? Its better to just make a 1 px wide by 2 px high.
noiz
shoot, my bad, it's teh other one. variations fried the designer's cells smile.gif

OMG I NEED AN ANSWER!!!

How do you access grayscale in Photoshop?
noiz
Go to Image>Mode> choose Grayscale. Or when you're making a new document you can choose the Color to be Grayscale(it's on RGB by default), that way every pic you insert in it will automaticaly be grayscaled.

OMG, I love you. It was such a bastard not to know. sad.gif

I am wondering how to insert a grid into my background.....please help!

Well depending on what size you would want the boxes...this is what you would do:

New document: 4x4, 100 ppi, transparent background.

Zoom in to 1600%. Get the pencil tool, set it on 1 pixel. Now make it look like this:

IPB Image

Now go to Edit --> Define Pattern.

When you want to use this, go to Layer --> Layer Style --> Pattern Overlay.
