Re: Magical HP icons

hey all,

your icons are AWESOME!!!! I am so jealous, you have no idea! you've inspired me like crazy, but the only program i have on my computer is paint (which stinks like no other)! i'm on a budget, too, so do you guys know of any free programs that work well that i can download off the internet?

thanks MUCHO!
Jenny

Re: Magical HP icons

SodaSpill there is Gimp and I used to have PhotoPlus at the beginning. Both are free.

Edit: Al beat me.

Re: Magical HP icons

Or you can try a free trial of Paintshop Pro at jasc.com . Granted its only 60 days or so but its definitly worth downloading to see if you like it. One of the best investments I've ever made and far cheaper then Photoshop.

I bought my copy of Photoshop from Ebay - not recommended. Most of the copies on there aren't real.

*cough*

I like it, but you need to use a better quality cap: the image is grainy. There's also a random black line at the top left which you need to erase. I hesitate to say anything about text, because I'm awful at using it, but I'd say that the colour doesn't complement the rest of the icon. I'd also recommend Dafont, a cool place to get lots of purdy fonts.

A good place to help you get started making graphics is Icon tutorial. Look around in their archive. They have pretty much everything you need there. After you learn the basics it's just messing around in the program.

Alrighty, I followed your advice, and here's what i came up with...

Much better! Only thing now is that if you wanted to make your text visible, I'd recommend adding a white brush up the right hand side of your graphic, but it depends on whether or not you want your text readable. Well done!
