A little Tutorial about how to make pretty mood images XD

Note:
- This tutorial contains a a lot of images. Give it some time to load!
- Yes, around the final image there will be a hardly noticable light area. But that´s a very LITTLE detail and it doesn´t bug me much :P
- I noticed I can´t upload the standart mood psd file, which is too bad :P But it´s not so important, really. You can create it yourself:
Press "Print" while you are on an ET site, open photoshop, new file (any size, doesn´t matter), paste the screenshot in the new image and select the green background color with the color picker tool. Then, open a new file of the size: 40px width, 25px height. Create 3 (!!) new layers. Fill the layer right over the white background layer with the ET green you jzst picked and then hide this green layer. Now you got the thing I call "Standart mood image", because it´s basically empty, but you have all the layers you need to start! :)

2005-09-29 [FireWing]: Hey i use PS 7.0 too!

2005-09-29 [Ocean Soul]: horseman - Aw, that´s too bad Paint is kinda poor :( And you can´t create gifs with it :( //FireWing - yay =^_^=

2005-09-30 [FireWing]: :DDDDD  But if you go to attributes onn paint it will say transeparent backround,but it is greyed out. I couldnver figure out how to use the transparency. I have to find out!*searches google for 3 hours*

2005-09-30 [FireWing]: hmm i figured i'd make the peton paint then make it transeparent on PS <img:http://i13.photobucket.com/albums/a286/guitarfreak1/ExportWizard-1.gif>

2005-09-30 [Ocean Soul]: Actually that bug is cute xD

2005-09-30 [Jewl]: I hate the fact that i don't have photoshop... I've got PhotoImpression, and it gets the same results, but still...lol

2005-09-30 [FireWing]: I need PI is there a way you can send it to me? MSN,Yahoo,etc?

2005-10-04 [the 5th apocalyptic horseman]: i dont even have that kinda thing <x,.,,.,x> i hate these computers... but paint is one of my fav programs right now anyways

2005-10-04 [Ocean Soul]: You have to LOVE your machine or it will not work properly *pats her monitor* stop whistling, honey ._. .. will you

2005-10-05 [the 5th apocalyptic horseman]: *grins* welll... these comps are so old that nothing is gonna work. at least half the time you can log onto the internet...

2005-10-19 [Ham]: I've just got a new computer, so I'm very happy, my computer abuse has gone right down ^.^

2005-10-19 [the 5th apocalyptic horseman]: well, i have to use *** internet room computers in the boarding house i live in. but a year ago some great ppl installed wireless lan (no official person knows about it STILL) and from time to time i can still a freinds laptop... like now <^,.,,.,^>

2005-10-20 [Ham]: friends have many uses, espeically rich laptop owners

2005-10-20 [the 5th apocalyptic horseman]: yesh, most definitely... *is back on awful comp*

2005-10-20 [Ham]: :( poor you...I'm so glad I have my own computer now, it's disturbng how much happier it has made me, I didn't relize I use it that much

2005-10-20 [the 5th apocalyptic horseman]: i know that feeling...

2005-10-20 [Ham]: yeah, I really need to cut back on my computer usage...

2005-10-20 [the 5th apocalyptic horseman]: me too. like quite being online all night whenever i get to borrow somebodies laptop. it is not healthy. bur then again my whole lifestyle in general isnt exactly...

2005-10-20 [Ham]: meh, health is over rated...

2005-10-22 [the 5th apocalyptic horseman]: yeah. i mean, why live healthy when we are all gonna die soon anyways? we might as well enjoy the last years until world war 3 and the atom bombs hitting us then...

2005-10-22 [Ham]: I'm not looking forward to it...

2005-10-22 [the 5th apocalyptic horseman]: but it will come soon so why not enjoy life till then

2005-10-22 [Ham]: I shall ^.^

2005-10-22 [the 5th apocalyptic horseman]: *grins* and i shall leave now... i should have left an hour ago.

2005-10-23 [Ham]: I do that all the time...turning off the computer seems like so much hard work...

2005-10-23 [Ocean Soul]: *laughs* talking about the 'non'sense of life, aren´t you ;) Computer steal a lot of time, nasty little buggers, but oh well.. it´s not really to be blamed on the machine, eh.

2005-10-23 [Ham]: yep, they should be used responsibly

2005-10-24 [the 5th apocalyptic horseman]: yeah they should but then again... we'd have to use TELEPHONES to talk to people who are far away, and there is nothing i despise more...

2005-10-24 [Ham]: I don't mind them, I just hate mine at the moment, it keeps cutting out so I have to use the one in the hall with my entire family listening...

2005-10-24 [Ocean Soul]: To begin with, you wouldn´t have contact to so many people who live far away, if you didn´t use the internet. And I for example had contact to some people in Britain, Africa and Australia all via good ol' snail mail, which as well works perfectly fine up to this day I bet...

2005-10-25 [the 5th apocalyptic horseman]: well okay but... tis not like talking, it takes so long... *sighs* honestly, if letters return three or four weeks later because of an error and you gotta mail the again... i prefer the internet.

2005-12-22 [Pinkdonkey]: yay, I managed to do one too ! And with paint ! <img:http://tinypic.com/iz43t0.jpg" alt="Image hosted by TinyPic.com">

2005-12-22 [Ocean Soul]: Yay :)

2006-01-02 [Acceber]: I made one! Not bad for a first attempt! <img:http://elftown.lysator.liu.se/img/drawing/129300_1136236705.gif>

2006-02-05 [grey wanderer]: O.O I'm trying it.

2006-02-05 [Ocean Soul]: :)

2006-02-05 [grey wanderer]: ...as soon as my sister gets off the computer with photoshop. (grrr...)

2006-02-05 [irulan]: Well it doesn't look fabulous, but it was fun to try! <img:stuff/iru_orchid.gif>

2006-02-05 [Ocean Soul]: But it does look nice ^_^ And it's all about having fun after all.. :)

2006-02-05 [irulan]: Aw, thanks! I made this one from a photo I took - <img:stuff/iru_orchid1.gif> - don't why the edges look rough though.

2006-02-05 [Ocean Soul]: "Matte: none" is the key. I described it badly here because I didn't know it better when I wrote the tutorial. But when you click on matte -> custom and then select the background color you want, you get flowing and nice edges.

2006-02-05 [irulan]: Aha! Thanks, that does help: <img:stuff/iru_orchid3.gif>

2006-02-05 [Ocean Soul]: Hehe =)

2006-02-15 [grey wanderer]: HELP! What's the background color??? (the color that the background is, duh! Ok, it was phrased odly, you know what I mean)

2006-02-16 [Ocean Soul]: Uhm, I don't know it's coding. But you can easily find out about it with pressing the "print" button, then open your graphic program, paste the copy in there and select the color with the eyedropper tool you have =)

2006-02-17 [grey wanderer]: Thanks, I'll see if I can make that work.

2006-02-17 [Ocean Soul]: All the 'shortcuts' are easy once you got used to them ^_^

2006-05-30 [a clockwork orange]: Thanks for this helpful tutorial!!! <img:stuff/belladona.gif>

2006-05-30 [Ocean Soul]: You're very welcome.. and wow, nice image :D

2006-06-05 [Miss.Kitty]: I'm sad *cries* I don't have photoshop.. the only thing I used to have was a corel photoshop trial but I ran out of time *cries*

2006-06-05 [Ocean Soul]: Aw that's too bad.. You could still go for gimp though. I don't know much about gimp, but I heard that it's a good program :D

2006-09-02 [jsun]: Thanks for the tutorial [Ocean Soul]! I had a good time with that!

2006-09-02 [Ocean Soul]: Ohh.. you're welcome :) And the baby griffon is just cute :D

2006-11-02 [H3_six]: Thanks [Ocean Soul], even though I use paintshop your tutorial was very helpful. I have my own pet now. ^_^ <img:/img/drawing/180034_1162472950.gif>

2006-11-02 [Ocean Soul]: Ohhh, pretty pretty =3

2006-11-02 [H3_six]: Thankyou.

2006-11-02 [Ocean Soul]: :)
