I know several of you do some pretty amazing stuff with image manipulation for LJ icons and the like. What software could you not do without? I'm looking for some decent image-editing software that covers all the basics, but isn't too expensive. Mostly I just like to do a little photo editing and make very simple (occasionally animated) icons. Suggestions?

You can see that my current software isn't up to much from the quality of this icon.

In other news, I suck for not posting anything new for so long. But! But! I was in the UK and then I was renting and cleaning a house that does not yet have internet. I'm not done writing. I promise.

Edit: If it maked a difference, I am a Mac user.

I've just thrown together a bunch of very simple icons.

[livejournal.com profile] libgirl made me do it!

Make a list of all the characters in your icons. (Although you may have more than one icon of a single character, they only go on the list once.) Alphabetize it. Take the first two people on the list; that's your first pairing. Second two people; second pairing. Etc. Then write your reaction to each pairing (or a snippet of a hypothetical fic featuring each pairing).

Woo! Because I am a big dork. See that? That's me and my betrothed all dressed up for the Goblet of Fire midnight premier. *loves [livejournal.com profile] chiv*

I love making icons. Especially when there are new images and theories to obsess over. Enjoy!

For my newest community, [livejournal.com profile] hp_adult. So much more than just Dan Radcliffe's bum!

Another image from OotP, of young emo!Snape.

Supporting the theory that McGonagall is evil and possibly Voldemort's sister. Or that I am on crack....

I have been inspired by the recent Harry Potter themed Get Fuzzy strips, and so I have icons to share with those of you who are fans of both.

Yes, for those of you who aren't aware, Satchel Pooch has a Hufflepuff poster in his room, and Bucky Katt has a Slytherin one in his closet.

icons! icons! icons! )

*points at icon* That there is my mental image of both Regulus Black (Harry Potter) and Renly Baratheon (A Song of Ice and Fire). They are both young, pretty, mysteriously dead and *highly* slashable. And it took me until this very moment to realise that both characters have the same initials. So...Renly Baratheon *is* RAB!

A few icons, just because I was feeling silly tonight.

Credit if used!

I've been trying to teach myself to create animated icons without spending any money on software (because I don't have any this week). Unsurprisingly, the quality of the final product is a bit shit. I managed to upload the one I made for "The Tropical Adventures of Moony and Padfoot", but I can't seem to make my "Karaoke Night" icon small enough, no matter what I do. It seems like every time I reduce the quality of the images, the file size goes *up* not down. Grrrr! Anyway, I've uploaded it to my gallery so you can at least have a giggle at it. I'm hoping to finish writing "Karaoke Night" today, since I've been sitting on it for over a year. Whether it will amuse anyone but me is questionable, but I had fun writing it.

Do you really want to know?

And *yes* I am working on Padfoot's Tale as we speak!

I have been thinking that I would like to turn this into a paid journal so I can play with more usericons, since I am a big geek like that. So I spent about four a a half hours last night searching for and tweaking images to make pretty icons for this journal. Only problem? I have no clue how to animate them. I'm not looking for anything terribly exciting; just simple slideshows of three or four images a piece. Anyone out there game for the challenge? You'll get all kinds of brownie points and, of course, credit.

Edit: OK, I just got myself a two month paid account. Yay! When did the icon limit for paid accounts go up from 10 to 15? *adds more* There. Many pretty pictures now, and more from [livejournal.com profile] tenthz later! *hugs*
