Random Updates, things I like, and such.

What's going on around here? I'm changing things. I'm still going to be friendly. If you need my help with anything, please contact me, you can talk to me, yell at me, vent at me, I don't really care. I'll try to help you, no matter what. Please, don't take advantage of me, though. That's just a way not to get help anymore.
About Me: I'm A Christian, erm...I'm female, that's a thing. Um, I'm pretty much a conservative, but I'd prefer to think for myself and make my own decisions. I don't stick strictly to one party, I most likely never will. I'm a writer, you can find me on Wattpad at KnightIndustries. I get lonely sometimes, I don't know why. Erm..I try to be pretty friendly, I'm a Whovian, and I have second-hand fandom condition, to me! That's prettty much it.

Support Your Troops by Danilee3240


Hello, everybody! 

I see a lot of people struggling with coloring lineart, and guess what? I used to as well. I'm still not awesome at coloring, but I've discovered a secret. If you have Photoshop or Photoshop Elements, you don't have to go through a complicated process to extract the black lines from the white background! There's an action which can be found at the bottom, done by the lovely Saerina. There may be other extraction actions (hey, that rhymes!) out there, but this is the one I'm using. SO, first things first, second things second. Quick disclaimer, if you have Photoshop CS anything, you probably won't need this guide. This guide is designed for Elements, which on the face, doesn't allow you to add actions. 

Step One: Find your Adobe Folder. If you have a Windows 8 like I do, it may be in your hidden folders. So you'll want to do this. 
1. Open Control Panel
2. In the Search Bar, type File Options. Look around, and find the 'show hidden folders' check box. Check it, and hit apply. Then, hit the main files in the corner of your screen. Click "Windows (C: ) and then look for Program Data. Click on it, then open the Adobe File.

Step Two:  Open the Adobe File 

Step Three: Click Photoshop Elements, then your version. For me, it's 8.0

Step Four: Click Locale, then En_US.

Step Five: Click Workflow Panels, then Actions

Step Six: Copy your Action folder, or drag it into this folder. 

Step Seven: Close File, then Launch Photoshop

Using your new Action! 

To use your new action, open the lineart, and go into Edit: Guided Mode. Look for the action player, click the action, and then click apply action or something of the like. There you are, an extracted icon that's all done and ready to color! 

Recommended Extraction Action: PS Action Extract Lineart by Saerina

Ghost Icon
The first little icon I've ever made! Sorry it's so small, it was sized for Ponybox.

Do any of you look at what I post?
