I would really appreciate the help on Adobe Photoshop 7.0 because I've gotten really good with Gradients and I'm learnign about blur but would like some useful tips for making avatar because I want to try to make my own avatar, and possibly, other avatars. It'll be months before I even try to post other people's avatars. But for now, I'll try to make my own and will start creating prototypes for others.

Now, look at my avatar. How did kinglizard get that tree (the Carnivàle tree) there? Can you tell me how to do that, make animations, and also some tips on google searching this thing. Alright now. Any advice?

Putting images like that together is done in layers. Look up some tuturials on that.

I for one use Paint Shop Pro 8 myself.

Follow these google links:

It takes awhile to get used to do the product.

I will deconstruct your avatar how I think it was made, or how I would make it myself.

Im not sure if the background is one image or two. The sky and tree could be one piece, or they could be seperate layers.

If they are seperate layers I would do the sky first, then put in the tree layer.
As for the lightning im not sure if its a preset effect or what not, but either way it comes next.

Now the lightning may not look the best, but now you can alter that lightning layer however you want. You can erase or alter the opacity of certain parts of it around the tree etc. See how the lightning works around the tree.

Now again im not sure how the lightning was made, but im going to guess that some sort of lighting technique was applied to make the image seem like night time. I am not sure how its done in photoshop, but in psp its all presets.

It looks to me like a single light source.

Im no expert, I only do this for fun. Just learn by experimenting.

Here's a boatload of effects tutorials for Photoshop;

Your avatar looks like KL used a lightning filter and a star or lens flare filter over a tree/cloud image. Then some darkening of the shadows with the burn tool.

Learn to use "layers" will enable you to merge and blend in multiple images like in my avatar.

Have fun....

Worth1000 is also a great place for tutorials showing how to do anything you can dream of.

You probably want to do a google search for "photoshop tutorials beginner" to get the basics down before you start attempting the harder stuff.

Have fun!
