There are still some things about the settings on this laptop that confuse me. To save a PSD from ImageReady as a Gif, if the source file was a jpg, I have to edit it with photoshop. But then when saving it from photoshop it says "saved using ImageReady" in the dialogue. But I can't find that dialogue in ImageReady. Not an issue at all, just weird. Anyway, made a new icon (some might recognise it from one of my old forum sigs, back when silly kids used to complain I wasn't nice enough when answering their idiot rules questions), and also updated a few already existing but not very good icons.

Citizen, Gentleman Keywords: Citizen, Gentleman
Words from Dr Who, idea by [ profile] calapine, with a background by [ profile] anabel_icons—I liked this when I first saw it, but she'd messed up the spelling, I animated it but messed up. I was said by Hartnell in The Daleks' Master Plan (reviewed here by [ profile] nhw, a fairly high google result for the phrase), and is thus cool.

Goth, Goth Rome Keywords: Goth, Goth Rome
Animated by me, original art by SJGames—I've just always liked it, but the old version was a bit too fast and fairly static, now I've figured out how to do more frames, why not? NB, when I use it from now on I'll use the 'Goth' keyword, the 'Goth Rome' is merely there for backwards compatibility...

Think, Don't Think Keywords: Think
Russian intellectual catechism, from a t-shirt by New Statesman magazine—This comes back to my hatred of the UK libel laws, John Major, then Prime Minister, sued the New Statesman for printing an article asserting he wasn't having an affair with his caterer. The suit was spurious, and it was eventually dropped, but not until after the distributors and printers (because they can get sued to, as can a paperboy) settled out of court, and the Staggers indemnity insurance wasn't good enough.

A few more still to do, but I think I like animating quote icons like this, need to sort the timing out a little on these but overall I'm happy. Opinions?
ETA: Above images are updated versions after feedback, they'll probably get messed around with again.

Text isn't very clear on the publish one, but otherwise...

I've seen worse.

Too much flashing.

I don't mean they're too fast to read, I mean that if you animate every. Single. Word. It looks like horrible blinky shit and you might wanna stick an epilepsy warning on it.

You should be animating phrases and sentences together, as much as the 100x100 icon at a time. At least, that's what I think.

I agree..
with the Goth one..
I'd suggest putting the 'If you're really a' appearing all together, followed by 'Goth'
then the 'where were you when we' and leave 'Sacked Rome' as it is
.. or something

See, I don't like that much, but I maintain that there'sless flashing. Take the phrases and add flashing only for comedic pauses.

I'd do it like this:

am a citizen
of the Universe
a gentleman to boot


If you're really a
Where were you
when we sacked


And actually, 'Think' can stay, though I'd possibly do each line at a time. I'm a fast reader, so don'ttrust me on timing.

See, I like the phrasing on that more now.

Course, you didn't have to change the layout to crush it all on one base. You can stil wipe the screen after 'universe' as you did before.

Although the timing could maybe be worked on a little.

Oh, yes, RIGHT. Because everything in the WHOLE WORLD is MY FAULT, isn't it?

I knew assassinating Archduke Ferdinand was a mistake, but would they listen? No, they made me do it...
