This is the same image down to avatar size;


It looks a little squashed imo, but maybe I could do a background of smoke and flames to go with it.

My take was "eden is burning, but there's still hope."

I have to take off now, off to the coast to buy a car and a cat (yes, car and a cat..
)

Maybe one of the guys could tweak it a bit for you, otherwise I'll have a look at it when I return.

I like the one I am wearing really, I am not a skinny girl, but the Avie does look like me in some ways. Could you put just a touch of fire that shimmers? I know we are not suppose to have moving avies but just for a bit? Maybe make it both ways, one with a moving fire and one stationary fire like it is? That way I can switch as soon as my mood elevates.

Unfortunately I'm hopeless with animations. Agarta and Dutcheagle are very good with them, they would be able to make a moving fire background that would surpass anything I could do.


You can have animated avatars, just not backgrounds.

I often come across moving avatars.

Do "they" not really say anything if it is something small like blinking stars etc?

I have recently came across even larger animated backrounds by the well known (top 50) members here.

You're allowed an animated avatar, just not a background. I have noticed a few people with animated backgrounds also, but it's really for the mods to action.

'Basically as part of sticking to the T&Cs here we don't do animated backgrounds, even if requested. Avatars are a different story though.

The best way to get around it is to have a static background with a transparent moving avatar over the top, so it seems like an animated background. You just have to watch the size, I think total size of the two can't exceed 100 or 150kbs.

Right on...


Maximum File Size: Maximum file size for mini-profile backgrounds is 100k if you're using a clear-GIF as your avatar, if not, the combined file size of your avatar and background image cannot exceed 150k.


I'm not sure why it's not just 150K no matter what, but... rules is rules.

I do like that.


What effect did you use to age the image with? It almost looks like a cross between pencil or aged newspaper.

Well for this one i used Filter gallery>Cutout>use settings at your own taste and i used photo filter heating for heating up the image.After that i duplicated the layer 2 times 1 time to smudge it up and the other to use a splatter effect (Filter gallery>Brush Strokes>Splatter) then it's a matter of erasing the right parts and putting the layers in overlay or lighten.Then i used a orange soft pix brush in a new layer to colorize the flaming area and change the layer mode to overlay, and final i made the fade in and fade out tweening animation.So this one was quite easy even though this i my own methode for not to much age'n in the photo but if your searching for a good tutorial check this one out

That's awesome, thanks for that.


I'm slowly learning photoshop, all the little features you just learn by doing. I'm still somewhere in the middle stages of learning it all, but definetely learning more each pass.
