Any help here would be appreciated... Smile

Okay, I made a tutorial on how to make speech bubbles in Photshop, so you'd better like this:

1) First of all, you need a picture. Listening to Queen on Youtube and chatting on MSN at the same time are optional Wink
2) Important: Use the 'Elliptical Marquee Tool' for this next part...
3) Click 'n' drag an ellipse that's a teensy bit bigger than the area you'll want to type in. Obviously, this can take a few tries to get right.
4) Use the Paintbucket tool to fill the ellipse with the colour you want your outline to be (I've used standard black here).
5) Using the Ell.Mar. tool again, create a similar, but smaller, ellipse inside the one that's already there.
6) Use the Paintbucket to make it white.
7) Use the Polygonal Lasso Tool to make a triangle pointing to the speaker. Keep that short end inside the (in this case, black) outline.
8) Fill with outline colour (here: black) and use the Pol.Las. tool to make a similar (but smaller) triangle inside the pointer. Make sure it overlaps into the white.
9) Use Paintbucket to fill the smaller triangle with white. Manual cleanup with the Paintbrush may be needed.
10) Select a font, and type away!

Wow mate, thanks so much for doing all that! Hola Wow!

Time to get to work...

EDIT: I don't think I have that Photoshop; I only have Adobe Photoshop Album starter edition 3.2(Viewer).

How would I go about getting the Adobe Photoshop Elements? Smile

You're welcome, as long as the resulting comic looks good! Razz There's quite a bit of hassle (but no hoff) involved, which is why I use single-colour speech bubbles (with different colours for each character) in my comic, which isn't a rip-off of 'Irregular Webcomic' in any way, shape or form... Got that? Wink

5 now Razz! anyway, I like the gun racks, and the jump trooper! Can't wait for the final product!

Do me a favor and make a whole new topic for PC game discussion and/or Call of Duty 4 discussion. Wink

I'd prefer if this thread were for people who would actually like to give me some advice. Smile

Jinja, can you please tell me how to get the Adobe Photoshop Elements or whatever you have? Because mine isn't as extensive as that... It's just a viewer. Mad

Ah, now that's a problem. I've have it on a disc for ages, and I don't know where I got it. There are newer versions out now (I have 2.0, there's at least a 5.0), but it doesn't really matter, seeing as you have to pay for all of them. Try checking out that free Photoshop program - I don't know if it has all the tools, but they're all pretty basic. Link.

I bought Adobe Photoshop Elements from Adobe's website, it's like $50-$60 I think, and it's a great program! Smile Blue Arc
