2. my resolution: I'm trying to post more here...
(emphasize obviously on trying, resolutions&me are not very mixy. heee)
3. I organized the tags of this comm. go me!
4. I'm going to post about random Photoshop things (shortcuts, hidden features etc.)

A Vintage Icon Walkthrough

Because I keep getting asked about this vintage effect on the Doctor Who Hello? icon, I decided to write a very quick walkthrough, because I'm too lazy to answer it again and again *g*
it's actually fairly easy, and it doesn't require a lot of work, just some basics and a little imagination ;)
This is not a tutorial, but a walkthrough. You quite definitely need to adjust steps and settings to make them work for your own choice of screencap.

General Techniques: Watercolor background Textures

I can hardly move at the moment, my neck hurts like hell, it's sore and stiff. but it's a good enough reason to not clean up the apartment and watch Xena instead. (not embarrassed to admit it, heee, also I'm ever the optimist *g*)

ever wondered how to get the awesome watercolor background textures? me, too. so I spend some quality time with Erich and I'm pleased to announce that it is a lot easier than I thought it would be...

on request of mylildementor (I'm sorry it took so long, you can email me about the other thing we've talked about if you still need them after this *g*)
(and I'm afraid I have to admit... also because it peeves me that people assume that things that took quite some time to make are 'just cropped from stock images')
