Be gentle, I'm a pathetic Newbie

I'm a 'non traditional' college student in a graphic arts class, and already I'm driving myself and my professor nuts with a problem I am having with a PS project I've already spent days trying to figure out. I have a photo of a landscape that I took in 'portrait' mode. I've stretched it out so that
I can print it in 'landscape' mode. I have it stretched, using the pixel aspect under "Image" to 1.75 (custom), and it displays on the PS screen just the way I want it. I've changed all the settings in the Image size to 8"H x 11"W, and went to 'PrintPreview' and changed settings there, as suggested by my Prof. I've deselected Constraints. However, when it comes out of the printer its back to the original format! yikes!!

Trimming object edges..   (134 Views)
I'm wondering how I would remove that distinct "cutout" feel from object edges that you cut A good example would be this scenario: You have a (we'll say) face in the center of an image. Surrounding the face is just a black background. So you cut out the face, the result is the face with a black outline, and this is what I want to figure out how to fix. What is the technique used to remove this I dont actually have Photoshop but a descriptive solution with proper terms would help me alot. (For future reference)

Video/Graphics cards for animation/NLE   (130 Views)
again, gang. I will soon be purchasing a new computer and I'm leaning towards a Power Mac G5 as this machine's primary function will be NLE and motion graphics and animation. I'm wondering: does the base G5 have what I'll need in terms of video/graphics cards, or will I need to upgrade/buy a more expensive model Just curious.

HELP with layers toolbar..... Animated glittering text   (162 Views)
Okidoki....... I'm fairly new with photoshop.. i have photoshop 6.0 and I was trying to follow a tutorial on how to make glittering animated text (or images) and *I know this sounds dumb* but I accidentally got out of the layers toolbar i guess it was, and i can't get it back. Or rather i don't know how. You know... how there's toolbars for color and stuff on the right, i got out of the layers toolbar and need it back. It's a little confusing to make the animated text with layers etc. Basically i was adding *noise* in one layer and adding noise in another layer but with a different number. I was supposed to click on the image ready button and have it be animated but it wasn't working. Anyway... i'd really like my layers toolbar back. can anyone help
removing an item from an image   (143 Views)
I'm very green when it comes to imaging. To tell you the truth i'm horrible at it. I have this image that i want to use for my website, The website is built on a predesigned template, so all the images have been made for me. However, it's a humor site, and i don't think the logo is very fitting. There's this water in the image that i want to get rid of, but i've tried to no avail. Here's the img: And the address is Any one here that can guide me how to do it Or better yet, have a try at it yourself I'm completely lost when it comes to design. Does anyone have a good idea how the image would look best, so that it fits a humor site. Not a child site though. I'm thinking about some sort of element instead of the water. And does anyone know what the name of the font is, that is used there
downsizing images for web   (195 Views)
folks. My problem is that I can only download images to my (externally built) web-site through a CMS which only allows images to be uploaded at a max 150 X 150 pixels (jpg format). When I downsize my images (around 5meg at 300 dpi) prior to upload they appear 'grainy' and pixellated on the web-site. I use Photoshop CS and resample images using the image size dialogue box with the Bicubic setting. I'm saving with Save to web feature in ImageReady. Hope someone can offer helpful advice.
Minimizing Noise in photos   (257 Views)
This situation that I'm about to describe has happened many times before. I wonder how I consider myself 'professional', as it's quite a silly mistake and one would think a lesson would have been learned by now, however, I need some help with this now. Can someone give me some tips on how to minimize the noise in my photos in Photoshop when shots were taken at ISO 1600 accidentally I usually shoot at 200, and get great results. My husband was shooting volleyball the other day and I forgot to reset the ISO back to 200. I shot an ENTIRE day with our Nikon D70 at 1600! Engagement photos! Yikes! Silly, I know, but now I am trying to salvage what I can. Any tips I appreciate any and all advice on this (AND if anyone has any tips on how to remind myself to ALWAYS check ISO, those would be appreciated as well!) lol

I messed up my web template in imageready - how can I fix it??   (140 Views)
Here is what I did: Created a web template in photoshop. Went to imageready to create slices and rollovers. Then went back to photoshop to make some changes to the design. I changed the whole left navigation menu. When I went back to photoshop the editions I have made only appear as one of the rollover states. It looks fine on a rollover state for one little button at the top. But the normal view looks completely wrong with the old left navigation menu appearing. Any idea how to fix this
