Solved Need assistance creating an icon from existing one

Post by Brad38 on January 10th 2009, 6:03 am

Hello folks,

I was wondering if someone can help me to create a new button from an existing one. The button is a transparent image and I need to change the coloured part from blue to a nice, darker and brighter blue and still keep it as a transparent image. Or even if you can tell me how to do this. I use paint shop pro but I couldn't figure out how to do this in a proper and professional way.

Thanks very much Smile

Here's the icon: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Hi Brij,

Thanks very much for working on these, but those icons you altered are not transparent images. I need a transparent image in order for it to look right on my forum.

Hi Improviser...OMG! This is just about what I need and it's transparent! Smile How'd you do that? Smile If I may ask, can you try to make the second image stand out a bit more? I'm not particular on the hue/shade of blue, but I need the two images to look considerably different. It's for indicating new messages in my forums.


THANKS SO MUCH, I wish I could have done this myself. I tried and tried and couldn't figure it out.

Yep, but that is a bit too light, can you just make the second one that you fixed a bit more brighter or stand out more? And I have another last favour too if you don't mind. Smile

I thought I could do this myself as well but I can't. I need to create an icon that shows locked forums. I need to put this image of a lock in the center of the original icon I posted, not the enhanced blue one.

Here is the image of the lock:

Could you shrink the lock image down to 20% of it's original size and then place it in the very center of the original icon and still make the whole image transparent?

Thank you InsanityVonMike! It's not exactly what I wanted, but it's very good, I like it.Smile How do you guys work with these images and so fast?????

I really hate to ask people for help and just wish I could do these things myself.Sad I'm not a total dummy but when doing certain things with images, I can't figure it out. Or maybe I can't do them with my program. I use paint shop pro. What do you guys use to work with these images?

Thanks so much both of you for helping me...I really appreciate it !Very HappySmileSmile

Thanks again everyone who helped me here, I really appreciate it. Smile No problem Brij, you tried and your revised icons were just like the ones I was able to create. I just needed the images to be transparent and couldn't figure this out either. I'm going to mark this topic as solved now. Smile

Thanks again everyone! Hello
