I recently downloaded Photoshop. Up until now, I had been using GIMP2.6. Gimp's cool, but I knew that if I wanted to produce sprites that were truly impressive, I had to step it up. So thanks to Grayfox(Good ol' "Deepthroat"), I scored Photoshop...for free :cheers: With that said, I will be using this thread to ask questions on how to effectively use PS. Im always looking for advice and tips, so if you got PS skillz, tell me your "tricks of the trade." So here's my first question:

How do you index colors and set colors equal to zero ,"THE PHOTOSHOP WAY?" scratch

Just a small tip, if you hold ''Shift" an "Alt" at the same time while in Free Transform mode, you can resize the layer with the right proportions.

I created my first screenpack using GIMP. So I saved the templates to make the portraits as a GIMP imgage(.xcf), but now I want to edit it using photoshop. But PS couldn't open the file. So I saved it as .psd because everything else I tried couldn's support a file with multiple layers. And of course the layers are what help me organize my portriats. But even though it had layers, the template itself had been "altered." So here's my question. How can I convert my Gimp templates into photoshop templates, while maintaining the "original" arrangment of my layers. I'll include the layers themselves so you can see first hand the delimma I'm facing... confused

Just grab the portraits at https://skydrive.live.com/?cid=2baf5f750dc42103#cid=2BAF5F750DC42103&id=2BAF5F750DC42103%21103

You notice how in the gimp file my top layer is smaller and positioned exactly where it would be once you see it in mugen. Well, I want my photoshop file to look the same way. Without color changes, and have my top layer smaller, in the top right corner and selected just as it is in my gimp file. Or am I being picky? Seriously? scratch

I see what you mean now that layer cant be transparent when you load it up in photoshop. In gimp you have to put some type of color their in that layer then save it as a .psd then load it up in photoshop to see that layer in that position.
