PGSM: Second Best

Useless to Everyone But Me

Move on, this is a boring post only for me.

I use Ulead Photoimpact as a graphics program, which is a great program, and i love it, but people only write icon tutorials for PSP and etc. Which means I have to do alot of hunting to figure out how to translate that into PI.

So, a quick cheat sheet for stuff i keep forgetting:

"Screen" is "Inverse of Multiply"
"Exclusion" involves having three copies of the color to exclude, set at "Inverse," "Inverse," and "Difference."
Fake the "Color Burn" - Here

Personal most used layers for icons:
image - pink flood (overlay) - image (soft light %) - dark blue (inverse %) - image (soft light 99%)
PGSM: Jupiter Will Fuck You Up


Ive found many Mei-chan icons I quite like, but there were NONE of some scenes that i thought were MANDATORY.

i dont claim to be a fabulous icon maker - usually, i make some i really like when im making them, but the instant i post them to lj, they morph into something i would never download if made by another person.

that said, comments is nice, credit is mandatory if you take, please.
