I think it needs to be 12 KB or less dont it?

Yeah...not sure why he though 12.12 would work when the limit is 12.


Technically it's 12.24 or something like that, but when he saved and hosted it the size jumped to 12.6.


So what is the maximum file size you can save so that it wont jump over the limits when in the cafe. I dont think it will make much difference in quality but its a handy fact to know.


12.288 KB (Check out my last post). ;-)

Ok Wikkid I am trying this tutorial out step by step so I can learn how to do this stuff.....I am down to the part after I made 5 copies of my player and I went down the list....on the first one it says overlay 50%-erased parts to accent shadows.....I'm assuming you mean the opacity is 50%??Then it says linear dodge50%motion blurred 45deg.I'm assuming that by 50% you again meant opacity...then it says linear dodge 50%,linear dodge 100%multiply100% and then it says desaturate.....I have no clue what desaturate is.EDIT:I found desaturate.....Then it says directional drop shadow...I got that.....Next it says this is what we get with all that cool junk....How did you get them all together??You lost me here!

Not sure what u are asking here so i will explain it all. A stock photo is simply a photo you would find on google image search. You are gonna look for somthing with contrast and maybe a lil detail (thats what i look for). Then just throw it into the backround and resize as much as u like until it looks good to u.

First of all I want to thank you for the help!I need all I can get considering that I'm learning most of this by trial and error and watching tutorials.

What I was origionally getting out of his tut was that he had 5 or 6 different pallets set at 400X100 and he had a copy of the render in each one...Then I thought that he did different things to each one making each look different.

When he was done with that he had 1 pallet(I'm not sure if thats even what its called) of the render with all the effects on it....I don't know how he got to that point...What I did was drag each one onto the first pallet and just moved them until they matched up..I really think that there is probably an easy way to do that without having to drag each one on.
