A forum made for showcasing the best forms of the comic subgenre sprite comics with the goal of trying to develop them into something much higher than the current standard that is held of them by most people. GRAPHICS ARE A WORK IN PROGRESS - IGNORE THE V

We have recently decided to combine Empire of Pixels with another forum called HiPor, due to the low activity of both. That said, please redirect yourselves to HiPor at this time.

    Most questions pertaining to the product "Adobe Photoshop" can be asked and thusly answered here. Ask away.

    Don't you think this should be an "Official Photoshop/GIMP Help" topic?

    Actually, I was going to have them in separate topics because they are so radially different. I didn't get around to making the one for GIMP, however.

    I'm sure someone else has posted it in GavHub or some similar place, but how do you resize in CS5 without it looking horribly granulated? (I know it's practically common knowledge, but it's my first time using full-on Photoshop in while.)

    When resizing, you may see a selection box thing that says Bicubic or maybe Bilinear. Set it to Nearest Neighbor.

    Thanks. I'll try that and see if it works.

    EDIT: Neither are appearing for me. All I see are a couple of boxes with numbers in them.

    shadowStorm [SS] began pestering the general community [GC].

    SS: So I have Photoshop CS3, and I'm currently undergoing the painstaking process of learning it.
    SS: To my dismay I have found that my text is pretty much broken. I sent some screenshots to Philbert on BZP, but he couldn't make anything of it.
    SS: link
    SS: Also, is there any way of making the background transparent?

    I don't know about the text, but to make it transparent just delete the white background layer.

    Adding onto what Emkay said, when you make a new file (Ctrl+N), make sure that the "background" is set to "transparent" not "white", else it won't work.

    As for text, I have no idea as to why it would do that. You can try working with the "Character" window (Window>Character) and see if anything is set to white there...

    SS: @ First thing: Thanks. That'll be useful.
    SS: @ Second thing: Tried that. Still didn't work. Sad

    You could try putting a "Color Overlay" over the text and see if that works...
