    Ha ha ha, kept bashing my head to figure that out as well and have spent the past couple of hours teaching myself and reading up a bit on some blog but basically (using Photoshop CS4) what we fundamentally have in Blue's awesome PSD template is 2 layers: an image layer and a clipping mask layer...but then of course he has all the fancy effects but we're not going to tamper with those at all! You DO NOT need to resize the image layer at all, just to move it and position it to show the part of the image that you like best under the clipping mask and the mask hides the rest of the image - voila there you have it. Bit difficult to explain it but it's really very very easy to do. Yesterday I also kept on asking people to make me icons and today after 2 hours in Photoshop I can make anything I like by myself and the beauty about that is you end up writing the text in the icon to something special/customised. Do you want me to send you my customised template and we can take the tutorial from there?

    All I need now is to find some nice great stock images to import into the template...still working on that...

    Please take a look at the icons tutorial, its easier than you might think (for me LOL). So i try it again for photoshop beginners:

    The basic trick of such a template is: You don´t need to do anything, just copy everything from my icon to your picture !

    1. Again and again: You don´t need to rezise any picture but it should not be too large
    1. Move any picture into photoshop, copy and paste it into the template.
    2. Now click and hold on the frame(sorry my english, look at the tutorial please) of the other picture and move it to your new picture, this cuts your picture automaticly to the right size
    3. Now copy the layerstyles (rightklick on it, save it, klick on your picture, rightklick and paste layerstyles) to your own picture and then disable my other picture in the picture folder.


    ->If you made that once you need 2 seconds for this. I know it sounds and seems complicated if you never worked with photoshop but if you learn that basics you can beginn to work with more complicated or other icon templates.

    i forgot: anyone likes such loading screens ?

    @blue and moe_12345, you guy's are so awesome and thank you for explaining it. I will give it a try and really sounds so much like fun...hehe. I am using CS2. Do the loading screens take up much memory while loading a app?

    @moe: Please send your template along

    haha...I think I figured it out. Hope it was done correctly. It will be laying under the mask, but the picture can't really be much larger than the mask. Thank you moe_12345 for the detailed instructions.

    I am also curious where guy's get those cool stock icons/pictures

    See Blue's comment above: just drag the clipping mask (layer that already exists in the template) over your image and it takes care of the sizing for you.

    ugh im doin that, i think, lol and the image just blocks up the template. before this ive only used PS for resizing and very small things and i know once i learn this itll be easy i just cant get the hang of it

    The last question I have is, the picture is usually larger (I can see that when turning on one pic from blue's template). My pictures are not huge, and about the same size as blue's, but it does not resize the picture automatically. I need to make the pictures smaller in a separate windows so it fits into the template when it will mask. So basically I am dragging the mask on top of the picture, but the pic can't be resized.

    It doesn't work for me, I have the latest photoshop for mac and I cant modify pictures and text of the icon template ("non-editable adjustment") and when I try to put the old layer on the new, my new image doesn't resize with the margins of template.

    Solutions?
