Banner help! ( 10:45:36 MonAug 23 2004 )

Okay, I give up. Everybody's got so cool banners and stuff, and I wanna make one myself. Scoobysnaxx's banner will be in use (it's cool, isn't it?), but what's the best program for making them?
I've got the Photodraw, and it's completely useless. GRRRRRRR!

Photoshop :biggrin: Although Heidi will say PSP, it's up to you, PSP is easier to use but less effective :wink:

PSP rules :tongue:

To be all honest etc i havent ever tried Photoshop, but people say its really good. Took me forever to learn PSP tho. They are both good, whatever you can get your hands on i'm sure. If i can figure out how to upload PSP you could get that from me. :smile:

Yeah I love Photoshop for the effects. I can't do PSP as well as Heidi and Kelly though so I'm sticking with Photoshop... the problem I have is layers!

I like IPhoto Plus. It works really well. Has most of the features of photoshop, but is easier to use when first starting out.

It's important to give the impression that you know what you're doing

I had trouble with learning how the layers work in Photoshop too at first. It is much different than how layers are in AutoCAD. Object transformation eluded me at first as well.

But suddenly I had a series of epiphanies as I messed around with it and began discovering how things worked.

That's the key, you have to just learn as you go and investigate things. I'm always finding out new effects and better ways to do things. Of course you can always buy a book on using it too.

For banners and blends and such it is pretty much all I use now, although I will still edit photos in other programs to bring them in.

Never used PSP. May well be just as good.

I'm going crazy, and will abandon the whole fucking banner-project. :mad2:
I just can't learn how to blend images in Photoshop, in fact, I can't even learn the basics! Goddammit.

Dont give up Mage.. i have PSP so i know nothing of photo shop but i cursed a whole lot at first. Just take out a blank sheet and try seeing what the different buttons do to it. I know that sounds terrably simplistic but thats how i tried. :hug:

Also there are tutorials online, (ex: http://www.planetphotoshop.com/tutorials.html )

and atleast psp has a "help" feature were it explains how to do things :glittery:

basically to blend, first you have to open two pictures. Then figure how to cut them out, then copy and paste them both into the same pic.. then you can try the fine tuning with bruches and layers etc..

I have something called cloning where I pick out the pics I want click on this cloning then I click on the picture I want cloned then it makes another one just like it on my blank canvas ,,I move it around to get as much of the pic as I want ,,to place one another pic next to it I just do the same thing

what in the hell did I just say??:biggrin: that is good advice i wrote down what each thing can do until I learned it ,,
