Reviews for "Icon tutorial"

nice, but

when I tried to upload an image(yes it was 48x48 and yes it was a GIF) it said No gifs with tranceparent background.... how can I fix this?
Note: I use paint and to resize it you strech and squew it for all you noobs

Myst responds:

Well, for a start, it's 46x46 instead of 48x48. Now for this transparency stuff, I think what it means is pretty self explanory, but if you don't know what it means, you probably don't know how to use transparency in backgrounds neither. What is really odd though, is that Paint doesn't make any transparency at all ... so I'm pretty much clueless about this one ...

hey thanks for the tips!

But will this work in flash? well i dont know. other then that good job on teaching something pointless. ( I'm saying that in a good way)

Myst responds:

It would work as well in Flash, but that wouldn't be that efficient as the software isn't really made for image editing. Thanks for the review, even though I doubt there's any good way in qualifying someone's work as pointless.

Great,lets get started

Nice tutorial,but i cant make anything with paint,can I?But thats no prob., i got a photoshop at my dad's.Thanks for making this

Myst responds:

Well, you could do it as well with paint, but that would be quite harder as you don't have much accuracy when it comes to manage the image size. It'd take you less time just to get photoshop ;)

i was good

i pressed print screen but nothing happens

Myst responds:

Well, chances are what had to happen actually happened but you just haven't noticed because ... there isn't any "visual" feedback for a printscreen. It's basically the same as selecting a picture and pressing Ctrl+C (aka "Copy"), except that the picture is actually what's on your screen when you push the "Print screen" button. The rest is explained in the tutorial ...

However, there's a slight chance your keyboard might be the problem. You may have to configure some keys, or just replace some broken ones (which usually means replacing the keyboard).

Very Blunt Tutorial

Next time you make a tutorial, show more then one way to do something. Other then that is is a very decent tutorial if you are new at photoshop.

Myst responds:

Well, I may think about it, but in the first time this tutorial's point was to show a fast and easy way to make tutorial ... and also to show it in a fast way that's easy to get. So I just made it plain simple. Thanks for the review though.
