Topic :   PSP Tools


  
 The tool functions which have more than one tool associated together, they are accessed by clicking on the small arrow beside the tool you are wanting to use.

Examples Below:

[image]
Arrow or pointer. The zoom tool allows you to make the image larger or smaller to make it easier for detail work. 

[image]
Use the deformation tool to rotate, resize, skew and distort layers, floating selections and images.
Straighten: will straighten images that may be out of alignment. 
Perspective Correction: It corrects the perspective of the image. 
Mesh Warp: is a tool that allows the deformation of sections of an image using a mesh network to locate the area to deform. 


[image]
Use the selection tool to create a selection in specific shapes. 
The Freehand tool makes Irregularly shaped borders, point to point and borders between areas of contrasting colors. 
The magic wand works by selecting content rather then defining edges.


[image]
Dropper: To fill with the foreground colors left 
click the mouse, to fill with the background colors right click the mouse. 
Color Replacer is used as in PSP 7.


[image]
Paint Brush creates a freehand paint stroke with a brush. To fill with the foreground colors left click the mouse, to fill with the background colors right click the mouse. 
Airbrush simulates painting with the airbrush or spraycan. 
Warp Brush is new, and adds shapes, twirls, or expand areas to an image in an easy way that can enhance an image.


[image]
Clonebrush: Use this to copy part of an image to another location. You can clone within and image, between raster layers.
Scratch Remover: Drag this tool along scratches, cracks and other unwanted objects to remove them from your photographs.


[image]
Formerly known as Retouch Tool use the retouch tool to lighten, darken, emboss, change the saturation or makes other retouches to your image.


[image]
The above (Retouch) tool and this tool work in a similar way from earlier versions. They allow changing areas of an image or the whole image and are ways to retouch the image.


[image]
Use the eraser to replace colors in an image with the background color or with a transparency. It acts like a paintbrush and replaces the existing color. 
Background Eraser allows to just erase a particular background color.

Other tool purposes:


[image]
1. Crop cropping elimates areas of an image that is not needed. 2. Mover Tool use the mover tool to move a selection marquee or a layer.


[image]
1. Picture Tube Add images or tubes which are always transparent. 
2. Flood Fill The Flood fill tool fills an area with a color, pattern or gradient. 
3. Text Tool Use the text tool to create raster and vector tect. Vector text can be moved, deformed and edited. 
4. Preset Shape Tools Use the shapes tool to draw rectangles, buttons, callouts, signs and polygons as raster objects on raster layers or vector objects on vector layers. 
5. Pen Tool (previously the Drawing tool) Use the pen tool to draw straight lines, freehand lines, bezier curves and node drawings as raster objects on raster layers. 
6. Object Selection tool the object selection tool will move, resize, skew, stretch and rotate vector objects.

Topic :   About Tag Sizes


  
 Its always best to keep your tags at a smaller size.
When I first learned PSP I was taught it was common to make them about 400X400 pixels. Some go up to 600X600 now but to me thats really too big. The reason for this is...
most of your artists do not want you going over a certain dpi or dots per inch because it takes away from the quality of their art. 
This is what CILM says:
1. No CILM Artist/Photographer image may exceed 72 dpi (dots per inch) or ppi (pixels per inch) (for the metric it can be no more the 29 pixels per cm). 

2. No CILM Artist/Photographer image may exceed 7 inches (17.78 cm – 504 ppi(199 pixels per cm) on its longest side. 

So to be safe...please resize your tags when you make them or before you offer them... (smaller not larger)

To resize your entire tag and not layer by layer 
click image
then resize
make sure "resize all layers" is checked
I always keep my lock aspect ratio locked as well so it doesnt get distorted when resizing
I resize by percent instead of pixel...when you enter in the percentage it will tell you what the new size will be right above where you enter your percentage...
it will also show you the pixels per inch (which is same as dpi or dots per inch)
see example below
[image]

The important thing is to check your dpi or pixels per inch of your tubes. To do this you can click on your tube layer before you merge it and click on resize and it will tell you what the pixels per inch are. If its ok just click on cancel.

Topic :   How to Color Templates


  
 A template can have many pieces to it.
First you want to take our mover tool and move the copyright clear off the page or delete that layer. 
Some template creators will tell you to do Control + D to duplicate the template and close the original and use the duplicate.




OK now take your mover tool and move the piece you want to color. Now just move it a pinch.
Thats just to make sure that layer is active and ready to use.  You can also click on the layer you want to work with on your layer palette to make it active.


click on your paint can, pick the color you want your piece to be {over on the color palette} go to the piece you moved and fill it with color. 

Now you do this with each piece you want to color. You have to move each piece  just a pinch before you color it to make sure its active or highlight it on your layer palette.





Now if you don't like the color just hit edit and then undo




Now if you want to you can either finish up your tag on that white background or you can take your mover tool and move the white background right of the page or delete it and then you'll have a clear back ground to use or you can copy {copy merge because theres more then one piece} to a different tag.

Different methods:
To fill with color:
choose the layer you want to fill by clicking it on your layer palette
click the shape with your magic wand
if you click outside your shape instead of inside it,
you will have to do selections/invert before you fill it with color
create a new raster layer 
and flood fill with the color you wish to use
then you can delete the original layer.
Repeat for each layer. Be sure to do selections/none first before you go to the next layer.
OR 
instead of filling with a color
you can paste a scrap kit paper as a new layer
after you have clicked the shape with your magic wand
then do selections/invert
then hit delete on your keyboard.
You dont have to use the kit just like it comes.
You can add all kinds of colors and scraps.

Topic :   Color Splash


 
You can do it more than one way in PSP but one way is to duplicate the layer. Then on the top layer go to ADJUST, then HUE AND SATURATION, then HUE/SATURATION/LIGHTNESS and drag the hue button down to lowest setting (if that doesn't work change the saturation). Then after that using your select tool, draw around the part you want to colorize and either cut if you want the original color or colorize or paint it if you want a different colour.  

OR close out the top layer after you use your select tool 
then right click and promote selection to a layer.  Move that layer to the top and delete the bottom layer.  Make sure you do selections/select none.  Merge your top layer into your bottom layer by right clicking on the top layer on your layer palette, and click on merge/merge down.

Here is a picture to work with to practice color splashing.



Remember, you are going to turn part of it black and white and keep part of it colored using the directions above.

Topic :   Finding Lost Palettes and Graphics


   Find a lost floating tool barIf you have lost your floating palettes ( Layer Palette,Tool Options, etc.). You can snap them to the center of the Paint Shop Pro window by pressing and holding down CTRL+SHIFT+T all at the same time. This will snap all floating palettes to the center of the screen.

If you lose your graphic off the screen
Menu> Window> Cascade> brings everything back to center screen.

I keep my one toolbar and three palettes fixed...my tools are on the left and my color palette (Materials) and my Layers Palette on the right and my tools option at the top.  Those are the four I use all the time.  Remember, you can view your toolbars and palettes by clicking on view on your toolbar at the top.  To make it fixed...drag it with your mouse to the right side and it will stay there (colors and layers).  There is a pushpin symbol to hide/unhide it if you choose.  I keep mine open all the time.

Topic :   Autosave


   When PSP crashes or freezes for some reason and you haven't saved your work, you can lose everything, Go to File > Preferences > Autosave settings.
This will open the Autosave Settings dialogue box, Tick the 'Enable Autosave' box. Set the time schedule you require, 5 minutes should be sufficient. Click OK. Autosave is now enabled and your work will automatically be saved to the temp file every 5 minutes. If PSP crashes you can re-open and your work will be loaded as before.

I would urge everyone to make sure they have this turned on.

Topic :   Simple Animation - Adding Noise


   Simple Animation

1. I started by opening a new image 400X400 pixels and flood filling it with white. This is Raster 1 layer. 

Use settings in the Diagram to create your text. The font "Arial" should be in all PSP Programs. You may use one of your own but looks better if you use a big font. Use the nodes to make the text as big or as small as you want. I made mine big. When satisfied with the way it looks click Layers Convert to a raster layer.

[image]


2. Click Layers Duplicate Do this 1 more time so that you now have 3 layers of your text.

[image]

3. In your layer palette right click on your raster 2 layer which will open a window. click on rename. change it to Name 1 repeat this with both copies of raster 2 layer naming them Name 2 and Name 3.

[image]

[image]

4. Make sure Name 1 layer is highlighted. Click on Adjust Add/remove noise add noise when window opens type in 30 click on uniform and make sure Monochrome is checked.

[image]

5. Repeat on layers with Name 2 and 3. On Name 2 layer type in 35 and on Name 3 layer type in 40.

Now to Animation

6. On your layer palette X out the eyes on Name 2 and 3. Make sure Name 1 is highlighted Click Edit Copy merged. Everything that is showing will be copied. The 2 frames Xed out will not show up. Open your Animation Shop.
see diagram below for Xing out a layer

[image]


In Animation shop click Edit Paste as a new animation. you should now have one frame open in animation shop.

[image]

7. Back to PSP. X out Name 1 and un X Name 2. Click Edit Copy Merged.
[image]

In animation shop click Edit Paste after Current frame.

[image]

8. Back to PSP again. X out Name 2 and un X Name 3. Click Edit Copy Merged.
In Animation shop Click Edit Paste after current frame.

Now in animation shop click View Animation. you should have a glitter look to your name. If you are happy with the way it looks go to Edit Save as give the tag the name you want and click save. Animation Shop will automatically go thru optimization just keep clicking next Animations save as a .gif See diagram

[image]

I put the example on black so you could see the glitter better.
