Aindra's Basic Photoshop Tutorial


All tools here can be used for tiles, characters, windowskins, objects, pretty much everything else.
I'll cover only basics.

I'm using Photoshop CS3 but I'm pretty sure most of the features listed here are in earlier versions of Photoshop.


How to set the grid on the picture:
» Click to show Spoiler - click again to hide... «


How to select the picture:
» Click to show Spoiler - click again to hide... «


How to change the picture's color:
» Click to show Spoiler - click again to hide... «


Grids' Reference
» Click to show Spoiler - click again to hide... «


Please do let me know if there are some that are confusing you. I'll try to change it again to make it more clearer.

Award & To-Do List & Status
Spoiler:


To-Do List
  1. Custom List & Pages 2.0 Version
    Contains few bugs that I don't quite know how to fix. Am taking time to study and figure how to fix them, so it takes time. (I'm still a rookie scripter.)
  2. Surprise Graphic Package #1
  3. Surprise Graphic Package #2


To Do List - At Lowest Priority
New version of RPG School Maker. I originally planned to make a new version back in July 2009 but it fell apart due to teammates disappearing. Maybe I'll take it up again when my knowledge of RGSS2 improves. I had to include this in here because I've been asked often for it.

But the age of chivalry is gone. That of sophisters, economists, and calculators, has succeeded; and the glory of Europe is extinguished for ever. Never, never more shall we behold that generous loyalty to rank and sex, that proud submission, that dignified obedience, that subordination of the heart, which kept alive, even in servitude itself, the spirit of an exalted freedom. The unbought grace of life, the cheap defense of nations, the nurse of manly sentiment and heroic enterprise, is gone!

I actually never used GIMP, hence "Photoshop" in the title. I can't really help you there. sad.gif

I could get GIMP and check it out though... But that may take a while, so maybe other users that are good with GIMP can answer those questions?

EDIT: GIMP is simliar to Photoshop in the grid.

You click: Edit -> Preferences -> Default Grid

Change the number under Spacing. 32 for Height, and 32 for Width. Or any grid number you want.

DOUBLE EDIT: I added GIMP tutorial now.

Excellent tour. Though it's very basic, it still saves a lot of time =) Wish I knew about it a little while ago xP

In GIMP over a new file select view and tick "Snap to Grids" select image "Configure image grids" make the foreground colour black and the background colour white. Select Solid from the Line style option. Width and height will need to be, what enterbrain said. I forgot the exact figures. Final note. Make sure you use pixie and not cms. =)

People who have Photoshop should have known this already, but good job on simplifying it up for certain purposes.

This is very helpful. But I'm having trouble putting it in RPG Maker. It appears in the selection but it doesn't select it right. How do I do it?
