I Could Use Some Help

Hi everyone,
I know I haven't been around for a while, but I've been really busy with the holiday coming, and I had to get a new computer and get that set up.
That's my excues and I'm sticking to it.

I figured it was time to try my PSP on my new computer so I did this tut.

As you can see I made a real mess of it. My lights aren't right, althought they looked fine when i did view animation.
And the edges are jaggy, which also looked fine with view animation.

So what the heck did I do wrong?
I think I'm hopeless, this was a fairly easy tut.

Oh got the tut here

jojobee,
Welcome back, stranger!

When you saved it, for your Customized Optimization settings,----
Color tab,---- did you have colors 255----Optimized median cut checked-----Error Diffusion box checked?
For your Optimizations Tab,----Did you have a check for, Remove non etc.-----Collapse etc.----Map etc.?

That is where mine is set at and looks like this:

Urlee I have no idea.
I will have to go and check to see what mine says.
Thanks, that is what I want mine to look like. LOL

Urlee I checked and I can't find any of that.

You are probably in a different PSP than me, I'm still working with 7.

I have 8 just haven't tried to figure it out yet.

I know you girls are way past 7.

Jojo- if you are using animation shop it is the same.
When you go to save it as a gif file when the next screen opens, beneath the place where it says smaller file size click on customize and then follow the directions Urlee gave. Hope that helps.

Thanks Judy I did find it, and fixed it like Urlee said, but it still saves the same.

When I did the tut I didn't make the background a color because I wanted it transparent, would that have anything to do with it?

jojobee,
I did this as a transparent one.
I think you can't have a drop shadow when doing it transparent?
I will have to try it to see?

Oh well then maybe that was the problem because I did do a drop shadow.
Did you do that one without the drop shadow?

I did mine with a transparent background too, which caused me to have to play with the optimization settings several times to get the flares to shine right. They aren't perfect but as long as I have it on a white page they look ok. On a colored page they have white rings around them. I am going to try Urlee's settings next. ;)

Amy,
That is terrific.
The flare tube has that darn ring around it so you may not be able to get rid of it?

~Urlee~

RE: I Could Use Some Help

Well the white rings were because I chose "convert pixels less than x% opacity to full." I have to keep playing with the settings to get it just right on a colored webpage.

Oh, You mean the white around the edges of your graphic?
Yes, you are in the right spot to correct that.
