Thou shalt not cast any graven images.
I'm putting you all to work.
I have 33 icon slots left, now that I've bought my LJ and icon space for a year.

The newest:


The third comes from kittypix where I savagely stole a picture of a cat eating vertical horizontal blinds.




What else should I make?.

Where did the nub of death go?
You need a bird.
You also need an "answer" icon because you're always answering stuff.
And a "I'm a sarcastic smartass" icon.
Yeah.
And a you with random hot girl icon. Don't something dirty.
Yeah.

I have a bird icon. :P

"Nub of doom" went away because the picture was sorely outdated in weight and hairstyle. I'll like to keep the photos accurate, which is why I'll be updaiting a few current icons.

I don't think I'll be making any porn icons, thkyouverymuch. Though I plan on at least one Shibari icon, assuming lady_fox is amenable. :)

I get to see the pic before you post it. (To make sure I don't look like a lard-ass, of course)

You should have an icon of you riding an elephant.

And then an icon of you eating an elephant.

Perhaps I just mean a .GIF.

And an icon of you kicking Bruce Lee in the head just to show how badass you are.

And a XXX icon.

And an icon that suggests you're in a 1930s macabe horror short.

And an icon with a squinty face.

And an icon that suggests you just did something magical, except that magic backfired like in Fantasia.

And an icon of your third nipple. Failing that someone else's third nipple. Failing that, a hershey's kiss stuck to your chest with a sign that says third nipple.

And a video game icon.

And a rock climbing icon.

And an extreme sports icon.

Hmm...I'll think of more later...

You had far too much fun with that. :)

Come to think of it, an extreme sports icon would be awesome. You could be base jumping or half-piping or something. It would be tight.

You also need a grumpy old man icon. And you need an icon about the economy. And an icon of your insides. If you have any surgery soon, you should take pictures and turn those into icons.

Did I mention eating an elephant? Perhaps a whale too. Yes! An icon of you harpooning a whale!

How do you change the size of your font? I think those are horizontal blinds... unless I'm looking wrong.

A sexy icon.

I think you should have one featuring all three kitties. or one of each.

A drunken icon.

A drunken icon is BRILLIANT!

Change the size of my font? In what context?

Are you doing lunch with Addi today?
lady_fox From: lady_fox Date: August 8th, 2005 05:08 pm (UTC) (Link)
forgot to call her yesterday, and just got up, so probly not.

You change the size of your font a lot in LJ entries... HOW?? :)

I'll see if she wants to do lunch tomorrow.

Copy this into an entry:
<font size="+X"> TEXT GOES HERE &#/font>where X equals relative increase in font size.

Normal size

Normal +2

Normal -2

you can also change faces with this tag.
<font size="+X" face="exact font name">TEXT GOES HERE &#/font>

Normal font

Vivaldi +2

You can get font names from Word or Photoshop.

Lunch tomorrow won't work... but she eats lunch late, so we're going today. :) I'm off to shower and do the presentable thing.

You probably mean in Photoshop. ok, so you 've got the text written already.

    If you want to change the font of all the words:
  1. Select the text layer (On the right, towards the bottom, click on the text layer)
  2. Select the T(ext) tool off the right hand toolbar
  3. DON'T click on the text.
  4. Change the font at top. All text should change.

    If you want to change the font of some of the words:
  1. Do 1 and 2 above
  2. Click on text to activate text box
  3. highlight words you want to change
  4. change font at top bar


It's hard to explain since I don't know how familiar you are with the tools adn layer stuff. I that doesn't make sense, I'll show you tonight. :)

actually meant in LJ... thanks though! :)

Could you drop "Waking Life" in the mail? I forgot to grab it in my extreme haze this morning.
Stupid weird dreams.
lady_fox From: lady_fox Date: August 8th, 2005 05:12 pm (UTC) (Link)
By now, I think it'll go out tomorrow, but I'll drop it. :)
