Wow this thread is so dead, but I'm going to bring it back lmfao. I have the urge to make some more avatars. I'll sort all the avatars and then update this thread with some new avatars. Anyone have some characters they'd like as avatars? Now that I have the photo converter, I can finally take screenshots of certain outfits that you guys have requests for.

I used Photoshop CS5 Extended for these. Washed out? What do you mean? Also, I tried to balance the amount between close ups and body shots as well.
The best description I can think of for what "washed out" means is when you compare the PlayStation 3 to the Xbox 360. When it comes to most (but not all) multi platform games if you compare the PS3 version to the X360 version, the X360 version's colour is nice and vivid, while the colour in the PS3 version appears very bland or faded or dull compared to the X360 version. In this case people would say the PS3 version of <insert game name here> looks very "washed out". This is especially true for games that came out during the 2006 to 2009 era.

Note that this is not always the case. For some games the opposite is true. For example with the 2013 Tomb Raider reboot the PS3 version has nice vibrant colours while the X360 version appears "washed out". Also, some games appear the same on both platforms. In recent years game developers have managed to keep the washed out look to a minimum on PS3. But back in 2006 to 2009 it was a major issue as most multi platform games on PS3 had this problem. Note that PS3 exclusives do not have this problem, and games that are exclusive to the PS3 tend to have better colouring than X360 exclusives.

Anyway, that is what the term "washed out" means.
