i would say that you should get a good scaner and also adobe photo shop CS2 and as for a a brush it is like a pen in pain but give textures and effects when used right (so not by me)

Im just gonna ask a question ive been trying to figure out forever and i dont know if it will be figured out or not. But I need to get a program where it just basically helps me do everything. Change the color of someones clothes or wings or something like that along with maybe some other random things. The program i have right now just changes the color balance which really kinda screws up the anime picture for me. So if anybody could respond to this it would be great. The things i was using were, Nero photosnap viewer application, and microsoft Picture manager. So if anybody could help me out with this be GREAT! Sweet Thanks. biggrin.gif

Umm... It might sound unusual and new to you man, but any version of Photoshop can do that laugh.gif I recommend PS 7 or newer depending on your system specs.

Hey Ausdoerrt, you won't be able to find it on planetrenders.net anyways, there isn't any renders for it (except Momoshiro, which was found under another keyword).

Other than that, I found the render off google-searching, but it doesn't let you copy links/ save the image. Blah.

Can you give me the link that was in your URL at that time? Put spaces so you can post the link here.

I just happened to google it, that's all. I don't have the link, however, but my effort lead to 23 pages of searching ^^.

Also, you can't put links if you're a new member. Obviously, I'm not new ^^

Can you tell me what key words you put in, or the link to the search page where you saw the render? Can you find it again and take a screen pic of it?

Ok, this is gonna sound really noobish. *hangs head in shame*

I d/l'ed some brushes earlier, and I can't figure out where they go. They are just the .ABR files. I put them in the Plug-Ins folder, but they don't show up in the program.

Or, do I need to do something to import them into the program?

I feel like a dumbass for asking a question like this, but if it helps me, then I'll get over it. tongue.gif

Oh yeah, I'm using Photoshop 7.0. (if that makes any difference)

Place the *.abr files into:
Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop X\Presets\Brushes (where X is the version number for your version of Photoshop.)

Brushes created in Photoshop 7 or later will not work in earlier versions of Photoshop. Any Photoshop brushes should work in Photoshop 7 and later.

From the Brushes Palette in Photoshop, click the small arrow in the upper right corner of the palette, and choose load brushes. The brushes will be added to the current brushes.
