New to Photoshop, Paint Shop, Paint, Fireworks, or GIMP? Do you wonder how people make those awesome sets (avatars and signatures)? Frustrated, because they call you a newb, and tell you to buzz off and tell you to figure out how to do it own your own? Well, my friend, that time is over.

There's some specifications that must be looked at before you post though...

Asking graphics related questions:


1) You have seen a signature and/or avatar that you really liked, but you can not find a proper tutorial online to achieve the effects seen in the set. This is when you come here to ask a question.

2) You have tried to make a set similar to the one that you have seen, but you can not get it to look as good as the one that you have seen. This is when you come here to ask a question.

3) BE CAUTIOUS! If you see a set that you like on this forum, think before you Private Message the person to ask how they made it. It is good to Private Message somebody, but it is not all the time. See, making graphics on the computer is a tough job. It consists of layering and many different kinds of effects. Some people just have time to make their own, and some make another one for themselves right after they made a new one. So, look in this thread to see if a tutorial on how to make a similar set has been posted here, before you bother someone by Private Messaging them. If a tutorial for what you want is not here, this is when you come here to ask a question.

4) This is NOT a Request Signature/Avatar thread. Somebody will post a tutorial on how to make a signature/avatar, but will NOT post a signature/avatar for you to use. There's a proper thread for that, so USE it.

5) When asking a question, provide the following information:

- The graphic. The graphic can be a signature, avatar, desktop wallpaper, and or any other type of graphic. If it is larger than 450 X 150, please post the link, instead of having the image expand the forum. If you want someone to make a tutorial on a graphic you like, you have to provide an image so they can see if they can achieve the quality. NOTE: People that make graphics on this forum are not professionals. If someone is nice enough to post a tutorial, then it is a tutorial that is trying to get the same effect as the graphic that you posted. No one is to be held resposible if the graphic does not come out accurately.

- The size. If you see a wallpaper, and you want a signature/avatar to look like the wallpaper, or vice versa, you have to provide the size. For this forum, the size limits are:

Avatar: 100 X 100
Signature: 450 X 150


Please take these sizes into consideration. Signatures/avatars bigger than those size limits will result in a moderator telling you to remove the signature/avatar. Other forums maybe different, so that's a main reason why you have to provide the sizes.

- Is it for another forum? This has to be known, so the tutorial maker can know the size limit, and make sure that your requested size is proper.

- Changes. If you like the graphic, but would like to see different kinds of colors used, and you do not know how to achieve that. Just put the colors you would like to see used instead of the colors that are used in the graphic you provided. If you want a different kind of style too, make sure to state that. Any change at all, which goes from text to background.

- The Image Editing software you currently have. If you do not have any of the following: Gimp, Paint Shop Pro, and/or Photoshop, then do NOT ask questions. If you do have one of the softwares listed, or another type of image editing software, then provide the name of the software that you have. This is to help the Tutorial maker, since not all softwares are the same. Also provide the version, (example: Photoshop 6.0, Paint Shop Pro 9, etc.)

For Tutorial Makers:


1) I would like for you to post your own tutorials (not tutorials from other sites or other makers). It is not a requirement though. If someone posts a graphic, and you have noticed a complete and detailed tutorial that tells you step-by-step on how to make it, then feel free to post the link. You or another person can help the member in distress if they are following the tutorial, but are stuck.

2) You can use your creativity. Okay, I will admit, not everybody can make a graphic that someone else has made, and accurately replicate it. I would ask for you to try, and maybe add your own little creativeness to it. Or, if you want, you can post a tutorial that you have made, just to post it. Somebody might come across it, and might want to see if they can make it. So, you can post a tutorial for another person that needs help, or post a tutorial that you have made, or made for the fun of it.

3) Post a link to the tutorial that you have made, or seen, if the tutorial is an image. If the tutorial is a combination of images and text, then you could post it without linking it. It is up to you if you want to post the link, or just type it with graphics providing help along the way.

Here are some links where you can upload Tutorials that are on large scaled images:
http://www.deviantart.com/
http://www.imageshack.us/
http://www.photobucket.com/

Or, just go to the thread that is Image Hosts. Most of those image hosts will allow you to upload large images. Also use the image hosts to use if you have to provide graphics alongside text for the tutorials.

4) I am asking for anybody's help. If you are a graphic maker, I advise you to please help me. I don't want to be the only one providing tutorials for members. So, whenever you have free time, and you are not tired, try to provide some help.

5) I did this to help the people that are constantly making signatures and avatars for people that have image editing software on their computer. I find it much easier to just help them with tutorials, than constantly making signatures/avatars for them.

6) If you are posting a tutorial, follow this:

- Post who the tutorial is for, if you are doing it for somebody.
- Post what image editing software you used to make the Tutorial, and also what version, (example: Photoshop 6.0, Paint Shop Pro 9, etc.)

------------------------------------

Make that graphic!:


Here's how to retrieve brushes, that is most commonly used in graphics:

Photoshop Brushes: http://search.deviantart.com/searchcraft/?...otoshop+brushes

Some brushes do not work on certain versions of Photoshop. At the top, in the search box (top right hand corner) type in your photoshop version followed by brushes, (example: Photoshop 7 brushes).

How do I get that dang brush?:

Most people do not know how to get brushes, but brushes come in handy a lot. What you do, is when you find a brush (or brush set that you like), you download it, then bring the file to (Start/My Computer/C: Drive/Program Files/Adobe/Photoshop 7.0/Presets/Brushes) What's in bold will be different depending on what version you have.

Then, just paste the file in that folder (Brushes). Make sure it's an ABR file, and if it's a whole pack of brushes, make sure you are not pasting the whole folder. Instead, enter the downloaded brushes folder, and highlight all the brushes, and copy them to the Brushes folder. Then Viola.

Great... now how do I use it?:

Simple. Once you have it in the folder. Open Photoshop. (Make sure Photoshop is closed when you copy the brushes you downloaded to the Brushes folder). Then click on the Brush tool on the Photoshop toolbar, then select the brush you have pasted and now you can use it.

BRUSH AND LAYER TUTORIALS:


Brushes:

1) Download Brush
2) Copy ABR File
3) Paste in Brush folder: (Start/My Computer/C: Drive/Program Files/Adobe/Photoshop 7.0/Presets/Brushes)
4) Open Photoshop
5) Click Brush tool: http://img295.imageshack.us/img295/3481/ph...barbrush2mu.jpg
6) Then find Brush from the drop-down menu (notice down arrow): http://img440.imageshack.us/img440/6715/brushattop9vc.jpg
7) Once clicked, choose top (right facing arrow) to select your brush (arrow is in blue, brushes are in green): http://img470.imageshack.us/img470/1879/brushes3it.jpg
8) Use scroll function to select a type of brush: http://img389.imageshack.us/img389/4128/scroll2ax.jpg
9) Select a brush: http://img485.imageshack.us/img485/4702/selection9uq.jpg
10) Brush in action: http://img385.imageshack.us/img385/9934/brushinaction2ym.jpg

Okay! But, I saw all these effects and such! Effects are usually layered, one on top of each other, to get a really great ending effect. Most people in the graphics industry, use layers to help them out.

Layers:

1) Find a person or image: http://www.geocities.com/crvncl63/tolgahansayisman.jpg << Using as an example.
2) Open image in Photoshop, then get the pen tool and start going around the person: (pen tool): http://img473.imageshack.us/img473/1195/pentool3yz.jpg (pen tool used on image, remember don't drag, but instead click around the outline or outer edge of the person or animal or object): http://img473.imageshack.us/img473/290/pentoolinuse6ms.jpg (Opps.. the pen tool is not going right along the edge.. easy way to fix that.. use the anchor pen tool): http://img458.imageshack.us/img458/5162/addanchor6jq.jpg (now that you got the anchor tool selected, click the line that you made with the pen tool and move it close to the person's outline, you may have to click and move a couple of time for the line to form perfectly smooth): http://img82.imageshack.us/img82/5355/anch...oundperson6.jpg
3) Once finished going around the outline, make the pen tool select around the image: http://img80.imageshack.us/img80/153/selecting3yc.jpg (selection): http://img486.imageshack.us/img486/9203/selec1pu.jpg
4) Then copy and paste into a new document: http://img388.imageshack.us/img388/9540/new4qx.jpg (pasted): http://img414.imageshack.us/img414/9563/pasted3yv.jpg
5) Get C4D render!:
http://www.deviantart.com/deviation/26068746/
http://www.deviantart.com/deviation/24037361/
(Those are not brushes. Download them, and you can open them in photoshop *one at a time, and paste them on your graphic, or in the background)
6) Getting the render to look good: (first step, make new layer): http://img485.imageshack.us/img485/9913/newlayer6as.jpg (showing new layer): http://img378.imageshack.us/img378/2126/layershowing8xf.jpg (paste C4D): http://img374.imageshack.us/img374/748/c4d5fw.jpg
7) Placing your name: (find text to use here: http://www.dafont.com) Once you download a font, go to Start/My Computer/C: Drive/Windows/Fonts and paste the font in there. Then you can use it in Photoshop, and will be available as a font: http://img63.imageshack.us/img63/4638/font0sm.jpg
8) Placing your name (2): (Find a good spot): http://img98.imageshack.us/img98/3374/type4nq.jpg <<That's not a good spot, it's just to show you that you can move it anywhere's. Experiment with placement, and be creative.
9) Background: (Choose a gradient or paint, make sure you have a blank new layer in the back. Layers are moveable in that space at the bottom right hand corner.): http://img143.imageshack.us/img143/6831/ba...undcolor4ks.jpg <<Blah, ugly.. ew. (Now, look at this with placement of text, and brushes being used in the background): http://img139.imageshack.us/img139/8157/finished1wv.jpg << Still looks ugly, but a little better than just using a backgroud color.
10) Moving text like I did: http://img140.imageshack.us/img140/2530/rotation5nt.jpg (after clicking rotate, a box pops up around your text, you can move it anyway you want. You can choose different options also, perspective and such.): http://img439.imageshack.us/img439/345/box5ke.jpg

I used PHOTOSHOP 7.0 for these tutorials!

NOTE: This is done by me, quickly. So, it doesn't look that great. Experiment and try things out, use your creative side, but also make it look good. Use different types of colors and gradients, make it all great. I hope I helped. biggrin.gif Now, I hope other people post their own tutorials and such, and start asking for help. biggrin.gif

Other Resources:
Renders: http://www.digital-industry.net/renders/ << These are in png format, so their backgrounds are transparent. You can use these, instead of getting the pen tool after an image, just so the background can come out. They are easy to use, and all you would need to do is add effects around them and such. biggrin.gif Of course, you will have to delete the signature of the person who made it, just by making a box selection, and using the Cut option.

@-josh- ~ (post one) - I would rather you NOT steal other people's ideas. This is NOT what this thread is for. If someone posts a tutorial on how to make something, and posts the outcome, I don't want anybody to replicate it (AS IS). That would be stealing, and stealing anything, whether it be something so small as a graphic, is still wrong.

I made this thread to help people that are in need. Follow the tutorials, yes, but put your own style into it. Everybody has their own style, you just have to figure out what it is, and then run with it. I have always learned, that if you don't input your own style into things, it turns out to be a repetitive chain reaction. Do you know how boring it would be if the world had the same trees, that were similar to each other from the inside out? How about people? Would it be boring to have everybody look the same?

(post two) - Sorry, I do not have GIMP. Hopefully, someone on this forum has it, and will share a tutorial with you. biggrin.gif

@Xiitharn ~ It's time. biggrin.gif

----

TUTORIAL (transparency)
REQUESTED BY Xiitharn
SOFTWARE USED photoshop 7.0


Transparency is a pretty simple process, probably the most simple, depending on your creative style. If you have a complicated graphical style, it maybe a bit harder for you. If not, it should be a peice of cake.

STEPS:

1) Open Photoshop (then click File>New)
2) Then, in the spaces provided, put in the size of the graphic that you will be working on (e.g.; 450x150 if you will be wanting to make a signature).
3) Make sure that the bottom bubble in the box is dotted (bubble near Transparent): http://img111.imageshack.us/img111/3944/transparentju9.jpg
4) Your done, now click OK.
5) Now your document has blocks on it.
6) Make a new layer: http://img77.imageshack.us/img77/9774/newlayerqi1.jpg
7) Now you have two transparent layers biggrin.gif
8) On the new layer (sometimes called second layer, or second card) place a render or image ---

NOTE: Renders can be found in the beginning post. If you are using an image, there's a simple way of cutting the object you want out of the picture (USING THE PEN TOOL) in the the beginning post also. The image and/or render might need to be sized accordingly, due to the size of your canvas (450x150 if you are making a signature for this thread).

9) The placed render and/or image should look something like this: http://img58.imageshack.us/img58/7089/renderlz8.jpg
10) Once the render and/or image in in place, effects can be placed.
11) Brushes can be used around the render and/or image, or C4D's can be used.

NOTE: Brushes and c4d's can be found in the beginning post.

12) If you are using brushes, make a new layer, and place it under the render's layer: http://img220.imageshack.us/img220/2214/layerlayergk5.jpg
13) Get a hold of some brushes that you like.

NOTE: How to acquire, and use brushes, is also stated in the beginning post.

14) Use the brushes in the layer between the render's layer, and background layer: http://img63.imageshack.us/img63/9659/brushescq2.jpg
15) Create a new layer over the render's layer: http://img49.imageshack.us/img49/654/layer4pb4.jpg
16) On this new layer, put subtle brushes over the render, but make sure the brushes are going on the layer above the render, not on the layer of the render: http://img301.imageshack.us/img301/9288/layerbrushesfa0.jpg

(optional stage) = If you want, you can also choose how the layer with the brushes reacts (right click layer>Blending Options>Blend Mode): http://img61.imageshack.us/img61/6059/blendmodegx1.jpg
This makes for a cool effect, and actually (reacts) well with the lower layers (such as render, and brush(es) #1 layer).

Experiment, adding layers and brushes.

NOTE: Do not fill up the whole canvas. If you do, it will not look good transparent. Transparency is not suppose to look like a block of brushings, with no border. Trust me, that does not look good. The focus must always be on the object that you want to focus on.

Me experimenting a little (remember, play with the text too.. biggrin.gif): http://img232.imageshack.us/img232/2354/expyp2.jpg

****
NOTE: Use andrzej's way of saving, that is located in the post right below this one. smile.gif

This is a way of saving that produces a large file size. I advise you to not use this stage. It's just to show how the transparent sig looks:

Saving---
Once finished, clic (file>save as...).
Choose a destination, a name, and choose png for you file format: http://img227.imageshack.us/img227/7794/pngbf4.jpg
A little box will pop-up, make sure you choose None.
And you're done!

Result:

IPB Image

The average day graphic designer would think that were utter crap. I can do way better, yes, but this is just to use for an example. biggrin.gif Plus, I didn't want to spend days working on one tutorial, so I did it quick, but steady. I tried my best, and I hope you learned something. Hopefully, you can pull something great off.

Hmm.. and you can also do this with text, instead of a render and/or image. biggrin.gif There's limitless possibilities. biggrin.gif

you should also crop the image to get rid of the area that you're not using.

use the Marquee Tool (M) and make a selection around your image
then go Image > Crop

IPB Image




additionaly: you should actually use GIF or PNG-8bit instead of that PNG (24-bit) since IE doesn't support the alpha transparency and it produces a large file size

you can use Save For Web... instead of Save, then choose GIF or PNG-128.

click on matte and use the color #EEF2F7 or #F5F9FD (since the forum has alternating post colors) or #f1f5fa since it's a medium between the two

and here's the GIF (~22KB)

^165.19 kB (169151 bytes) and there appears to be no substantial transparency...

You should keep your brushing well within the boundaries of the canvas to make a decent looking transparent sig.

THANKS SO MUCH KAMARI & ANDRZEJ, YOU MADE MY DAY.

One question though: I'm using PS 4.0, is there any difference in the software since you used 7.0 for the tutorial?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Photoshop

Sroll down to release history, that details the major differences between the versions.

I find that with each new release it gets easier to use but heavier in terms of content.

Try following my step-by-step instructions. If you cannot follow them, then you most likely don't have the same features that Photoshop 7.0 has. Although, I think you can get the same effects no matter what, since I think Photoshop 7.0 doesn't have that much of a significant change from Photoshop 4.0. 4.0 is just an older version. But, like I said, try it. If it works, then you will have no problem with Photoshop 7.0 tutorials.

The only real reason I see people wanting CS or CS2 (or even CS3 in the future), is the interface really, and the ability to download brushes and/or patterns, that people in Photoshop 7.0 can't. It's not that big of a step up in my eyes.

I don't see why it doesn't work that well. It should, unless your computer is not that great.

No, no, no. Don't ever call your artwork crap, or it will always be crap in your eyes.

It does look like you tried to follow my tutorial, but had a hiccup somewhere's. It's with the brushings, that is easy to tell. The brushings make a huge rectangular box (which I think I said does not look good). When you have brushes that form a box kinda, then you must erase some of the brushings, until there's only some brushings around the render and/or image that you are using. Look at the outcome of mine in the previous tutorial to see what I am talking about.

Another thing, you do not want your render to have it's head cut off in a transparent signature. It doesn't look that good whilst it is like that. Try to resize the render, by going to (Edit>Transform>Scale). Make sure that only the bottom part is the cut off part, not the head. biggrin.gif

...you can use Save For Web...


Thank you andrzej!

From now on people, use andrzej's way of saving. It is much better, for those who have dial-up. Plus, it also makes the load time on the forums much faster. I tried to do that once, but my image came out in bad quality, but the way andrzej did it, is great.

USE andrzej's WAY OF SAVING, IN PHOTOSHOP!

K-I i was joking about the hole stealing style thing


I forgive you. But, you must remember, even though you are joking, many do take the jokes seriously. That's why many would stray away from posting their own tutorials, if somebody says they will steal their graphical ideas.

Download the fonts from the site where there are free fonts.

Then, do the following:

Download the font from your download source (i.e. http://www.dafont.com )
Copy the font (or you might have to extract a folder to copy the font itself, if so, do that)
Then, go to My Computer>C: Drive>Windows>Fonts
Paste the font(s) in the Fonts folder
Then, it will show up in the font list in Photoshop

It's pretty simple. I think even all font sites tell how to download them, and to what location.
