I've learned some new stuff with PS and tried my hands on the screencaps to No Exit aka 2x06. Pretty experimental for me... Most of them I don't like but I think a few worked out well.

Thank you! So glad you like them! I'm still trying to figure out the brushes, hee. PS is like a showbag :-P

I worked with gimp first but decided to give PS a try. It's a nice program if you have the time to figure it out. Might take me another few years, though :-)

You have PS now? Wow! And I think the icons look better in quality. Congrats! ♥

I've had PS for a while, I just never read any tutorial *hangs head in shame* Now I did and learned how to use brushes... Better late than never, right? :-P

Thanks!! I was hoping I could improve with all the downloading of brushes and reading my ass off *grin*

I started that way too, and then reading and testing tutorials.
And there's always something new to learn. When I have the 3 weeks off starting 6th August, I have to learn more. I have some DVD's with lectures, and I hope that I can improve too.
I really love the Icon you're using now. *drools*

Yeah, I'm still in the beginners tutorials *grins* But I do think I realised some pretty important stuff I was doing "wrong" the entire time *headdesk*
*laughs* My family would say I'd be crazy for spending my holiday on learning graphic skills, but I'd so love it! I didn't even know there are lectures on DVD.
Thank you! That one I'm pretty proud of myself *laughs*

Lovely work. I like how soft yet sharp they are, especially in 9 and 25. Also, the cropping in 2/3 rocks! *thumbs up*

Thank you! I always have my issues with the sharpening tool, it's my worst enemy *grin* 2/3 are my favorite ones :-)

Not sure why you don't like them! I think they're great. Snagged a bunch and I'll credit when I use them.

Thank you! I'm not sure I'm using all the tools of PS properly. I think I gotta read some more tutorials and try to add text. But glad you liked!

Love your icons! I'll snag one or two of the Sam icons, I need more of those. ;D Unfortunately, with my unpaid account, I can only use 6 icons all in all. Boooh. :(
The yellow squares first baffled and then amused me. Heh.

Btw, how are you? I've been playing dead when it comes to commenting or posting (sorry), I'm afraid I'm really bad at this eljay business.

Thank you! 6 icons *drops jaw* I'd freak and change them every day *grin* I got myself a permanent account, with the max number of icons *happy sigh* Everyone seems to love the squares. I guess my one time try to be funny worked *grin*

I'm fine, thanks, how are you?

Yeah well, either you love to keep a journal or you don't. I don't think it's something you can force yourself to do. And there is no pressure anyway, it's yours, you can update whenever you feel like it :-)
