    I want to know if anyone can point me in the right direction on a link or how to find very detailed tutorials or even step by step written instructions on how to create iPhone/iPod touch icons. I want to obviously better my skills at creating icons for my themes, and this has been pointed out to me many times. I have found many vids. on YouTube but they are not that detailed, and sometimes after following the step by step ones I seem to missing a step. Sorry if this sounds similar to other posts of mine or others, but I really want to get better at this and I don't like the amount of space Adobe Photoshop takes up.

    Thanks, The Crow

    Did you REALLY, seriously need to ask? You know what I did? Typed "Gimp tutorials" into google, and low and behold...

    Anyway, good luck at furthering your skills.

    Also, feel free to check out some of my GIMP work at http://falkon114.deviantart.com/gallery/
    If you see anything youre interested in, i might be able to help you with something similar.

    Thanks buddy, I did just Google it but the one that was the best was a written step by step but when I got to a certain point there was no layers on the right with the 3 different images. Anyway thank a lot, and I am about to go check out your work. Very nice work, hope I can learn those skills as well and did you use Gimp 2.6 as well?

    Cheers, The Crow

    You probably had the "layers" panel hidden.

    Yeah, I did all that stuff (minus the pictures and the poems, obviously) with GIMP over the last year or two. Good stuff!

    But i've had copies of Photoshop to mess around with for a long time... messed around with PS LE5 way back when.
