Whether you are creating digital scrapbook layouts or using PaintShop Pro for other graphic projects, there are many resources that can help you. Associated with the Campus is a store, a bit like you can find a library to buy all the college books needed for courses. The store, in fact, preceded the opening of the Campus, and it includes resources that are specific to PaintShop Pro, namely scripts and picture tubes. This week, we'll look at various creative uses for the Wooden Window script.
A typical use of the script
This particular script offers several options to the user to help them create some unique elements.
- the wood used is provided by the user, so you can create a window from hardwood, softwood, fine wood, rugged wood, painted wood, weathered wood, etc.
- the overall size of the window can be set between 1000 and 3600 pixels. This allows the user to create the window in the perfect shape for the particular project without having to resize afterward.
- the thickness of the outer frame is also determined by the user so it is possible to have a very thick frame or a very thin one.
- the number of rows and columns for the panes can range from 1 to 6, and the script will make the necessary calculations to determine the exact size of each pane
- the joints in the corners of the frame could be overlapped or mitered to give a different effect.
- the multiple panes can then be tweaked to create larger panes and other interesting arrangements.
That is a lot of options to give the user almost endless possibilities. Here are some examples of windows created with this script.
Creative use of the script
Although this script is meant to be used with a wood texture, it will allow the use of any other texture (since the script won't know the difference). So, you can replace the wood by a metal plate, leather, granite, or even patterned paper.
What to do with those windows?
Of course, these could be used as regular windows, to show a landscape or scenery outside.
You can use each pane as a frame for various photos.
You can create a cluster by adding various decorative elements before inserting the photo of your choice.
Or they can be used as a way to display small elements, as in a curio cabinet, if you want to add a background to them.
There is obviously an unlimited number of ways you can use this script for your graphic project. How will YOU use it?
