Freebie lists
A lot of stores and blogs offer freebies to download. Sometimes, they are only available for a period of time before going into the store, sometimes they are promotional freebies that last only for a while, and sometimes they last a long time (almost forever). There are so many of them that it is impossible to list them all, but some places are making some kind of inventory of those free digital supplies for you to check. If you like what you get, add a thank you note to the designer.

Utility programs
Some little programs can help you with some tasks, making them either possible or easier.

TheFontThing : this program lets you view fonts even if they are not installed on your computer, which is great to avoid overloading your system. You can view fonts that are stored in a separate folder or even a different drive or a CD/DVD. You can type in the text you want and see how it will look in different fonts. If you are using Windows7, you need to download the Zipped EXE file and install it yourself as the auto-installer from the original download is not compatible with W7.

AbrMate 1.1: This program will be useful if you want to convert Photoshop brushes to be used in Paintshop as you can export the ABR brushes into png files. See how you can use this program to Convert Photoshop brushes to use in Paintshop.

XnView: this is another free program that will help you visualize the brushes you might have collected for Paintshop Pro. No need to install all the brushes all the time; save them in different folders depending on their theme, and simply activate or deactivate the folders in PSP as you need them.

PSP Thumbnail Handler: this free utility program will allow you to view the various Paintshop Pro files in your Windows Explorer. The files that you can now view include psp (Images, PSP 6 or 7), tub (Picture tubes, PSP 7), jsl (Shapes, PSP 7), pfr (Picture frames, PSP 7), pspimage (Images, PSP 8+), psptube (Picture tubes, PSP 8+), pspshape (Shapes, PSP 8+), pspframe (Picture frames, PSP 8+).
