Yaaay! 900 members!! Fingers crossed for our first-ever thousand! :D
Oh, btw. I do not want to warn everybody personally. Do not post games on this group. Thanks to everybody who posts awesome icons and comments that also disapproove, you are the best. Makes me believe in the human race all over again. :)
Okay, so I tried to put a bit of order here, just so new members can more easily get around, and I reckon that eventually this will be easier for all of us. You may have noticed that I have started a few more discussions. Think of them as folders, where you'll put icons into categories, so everyone can find them more easily. I ask for your cooperation for just a few days until we get this in order.
Thanks a million.
So... A lot of you have been asking how to make icons. I decided to help as much as I can.
If you have photoshop, lucky you. If you don't, you can always download one (muahaha illegal downloading :D). Try youtube for tutorials on how to get it. So, if you do have photoshop, you can easily make icons once you master the basics of PS(photoshop), like how to open a new document (wow), to change the size of that document and how to insert a picture and text. Toy with it for a while until you get the hang of it. Random clicking and testing tools really helps.
If you don't feel like using photoshop, you can go online and make your icon, and you don't even have to sign up for the site or anything. Here are some links I've found for you: http://www.rw-designer.com/online_icon_maker.php
(I think you can't insert text here, kinda messed up) http://www.blibs.com/mytheme/create-icon2.php
(animated icons, try putting some randomly just to try it at first) http://www.blibs.com/mytheme/text-icon.php
(text only icons - make it short) http://www.sherv.net/icon-maker/
(make stationary icons, pics only)
I'll look for more, but I hope you find something useful now.
