      Randy, I’m looking forward to seeing your layouts.  the focus of my photography lately has been abstracts (and other studio type shooting).

        Please let me know what you mean by resizing the photo to 600 pixels.  Is that 600 on a side or a total of 600, or something else?

          Gerry, welcome back. You know very well that the Bootcamp can refresh one’s memory, or let you practice. Looking forward to your projects.

          Ann, you are certainly not a newbie anymore, but every time, you get more comfortable with the projects. Looking forward to see more of Shelly.

          Marie-Claire, that is a beautiful dog.

          Gramie, if you want to enhance old faded photos, give a try to Fade correction command (under Adjust > Color).

          Sandra, glad to see you back. The Bootcamp might be a source of inspiration for your creativity, and with this cutie on the pages, everyone will be looking forward to your next pages!

          Liz, remember to add some story behind the photos. I am definitely curious to know more about this cow!

          Pirkko, are you leaving all those palettes floating?

          Lavada, welcome to the Bootcamp. The first project that requires a photo will be on Wednesday so you still have a couple of days to decide. And if you don’t have a common theme for all the photos, it is quite alright too.

          Linda, what did you decide for the size of the icons in the end? I have had several similar photos after storms. Remember to date it!

          Mary, we will be able to go with you visit places.

          Theresa, welcome to the Campus. You might not learn anything specific to 2022 during the bootcamp since it was recorded using an older version, but if you have any question that is really specific to that version, don’t hesitate to ask as I have all the versions. For the size of the image, if this is the actual size, it might be a little small for a full-size scrapbook project but you are in luck because PSP2022 does have a good AI Resize feature!

          Randy, I have been able to dock the Materials palette beside the Layers palette. First, undock the Material palette and have the Layers palette full height. Then, when you grab the Materials palette, look for this “ghost” element to appear in the middle of your workspace. Drag the palette on the right arrow and it should dock beside.

          Susan, no theme is required so you might want to “go with the flow”.

          Perry, that is a good question. Typically, if your image is square, it will end up being 600×600 pixels. If it is rectangular, it can be 600 pixels on the smallest size. The purpose is mostly so that nobody posts their full-size project, which adds too much to the server.

              Good Evening:

              I am interested to go through this refresher. It has been years since I last used PSP. It was a different time then using this program and on it I did a lot of graphic design. Gradually they shifted focus to photography and the energy (I guess my energy) waned. I am glad to be back simply to see if I can use it again to do the kinds of things I like.

              I changed the workspace to light gray and expanded the work area by closing the organizer and the learning center.

              The photos I will use is a group trip to zipline. I live in Belize.

                Don’t know much about her really but I spotted her on the high street in Marbella and had to capture her.

                  Hi this will be my 4th Bootcamp (I still have lots to learn about scrapbooking!)  and I prefer to work with a dark grey workspace, med grey background.  The photos I will most likely be using are a mixture of flowers, bush and animals from walks around my sons place.

                  Liz, the main town near where I live have what they call “Mooving Art” –  many highly painted cows are placed around the region and they ‘moove’ them around. There is also a park with a large herd and it is quite a tourist attraction and the kids love them.

                        Ilike to keep my onions separate so just put them on the second layer of bread. Is this what you mean by a story? I have never scrapbooked so i don’t know

                          Today is my birthday and my daughter took me to lunch where I ordered a club sandwich.  It was pretty yummy.

                          Now to think about doing just that.

                            I have done boot camp before, this time I think I will use mostly pics from around and in my Church.  I worked there for years and have a lot of great and unique photos.  Also as Ron said in the 4 ways I set up my workspace page, I can not get the material pallet to look like yours.  Because I could not post a picture on that page, I will post one here with showing what I did and what I wound up with. Perhaps then you can let me know what I did wrong. Thanks.

                              Anne, what is different between my Materials palette and yours? I am not sure what you are referring to.

                                Hi

                                I’m Greg from England and I have been meaning to take the bootcamp for ages; I’ve finally got round to it .

                                My version of the plate and sandwich is below.

                                I am using 2022; it seems to have got some hiccups.

                                When I click on a layer it looks as if it has selected it but when I use the move tool, it moves a different layer. Is anyone else having this problem, please?

                                I notice that when we move from the sandwich layer to the table image, the layer turns into a raster. What’s that please?

                                And then, when it’s a raster it is moving the correct image!

                                Any ideas, please?

                                 

                                Thanks

                                Regards

                                Greg

                                  Gregory, when you say you select a layer, do you mean in the Layers palette or on your project? One thing that happens with the Move tool is that if a layer is active, but you click on your project where that particular layer has an empty area, it will change the selected layer to whatever your cursor clicked on, which will then activate and move a different layer. So if you click on a non-transparent layer (like clicking ON the bread shape, or ON the spoon), it should work fine, but if you click right beside it, it will change the layer.

                                  ONE TRICK: when the correct layer is activated in the Layers palette, hold the Shift key on your keyboard when you click and drag that layer; that key will allow you to move the layer, no matter where you click, even in a totally transparent section.

                                  Does that solve the issue?

                                    I am definitely learning.

                                    I was wondering if there was a way to move all of the parts of the sandwich at once.

                                    I did a search and found information on grouping layers on the online Corel PaintShop Pro Help.

                                    So I was able to select all of the sandwich layers, click on the NEW LAYER GROUP icon at the bottom of the LAYERS panel. Then I just dragged the group to the Table. Then I ungrouped. And I had what I wanted.

                                    If this is not okay, please just delete this entry, and notify me to do it individually.  I did try to drag individual items first.

                                    Here is my new table with the Sandwich.  I chose to export as .png to retain the transparent background.

                                        MOVING THE MATERIALS PALLET BESIDE LAYERS PALLET.

                                        After a few tries, I understood what you meant.

                                        It took me awhile to actually place the mouse pointer over the arrow pointing right.

                                        I had been double-clicking and that only made it jump back to where it was before.

                                        I now have setup exactly as I want.

                                        Thank you.

                                          Thanks for that. It all seems to be working now.

                                            The sandwich is for my mother. It has lots of stuff layered in between two pieces of bread, including extra onions. She likes sweet onions, particularly Vidalia from Georgia when available.

                                            I had forgotten about being able to drag individual layers from one file to another. I usually work with tabbed documents which is a holdover from using a browser.

                                              Somehow, I just couldn’t have my lunch floating in midair, so I made a table for it.

                                              Forgive me, I’ve done this exercise umpteen times and I like to play! 😉

                                                Cassel, This one is showing on that page and it is different than what I get. Perhaps it is just different view of the newer pallet.  It is no big deal, I have gotten used to using the one I documented.  P S I did sign up a day late for this bootcamp, Should I have received the sandwich link today?

                                                  I put a canvas placemat under my plate.

                                                  I like lots of tomatoes on my gluten free bread.

                                                      Hello, all-  This is my second trip through bootcamp.  I’m not really interested in scrapbooking (though  I appreciate all the community support), but I am interested in learning more of the features of PSP for my photo editing.  I enjoyed my first trip through, but I see I’ve lost some of the “knack” I got with the first time.

                                                      Long story, but we ended up with quite a few amaryllis bulbs this Christmas season, so I have a plan to use them in upcoming layouts.  They’re quite photogenic.  With any luck, I’ll figure out how to use “background remover” to isolate just the blossoms and stems.

                                                      Happy winter, everyone!  See you soon.

                                                        Wow! Very classy layout.  What a great expansion of possibilities.

                                                          I made my sandwich with 2 slices of meat, 2 of lettuce and 2 of tomatoes. I changed the color of the plate, etc.  I added a new raster layer and changed the color to pale pink to make it look like a table cloth under the plate, etc. I added a heart for upcoming Valentine’s Day!

                                                          Question: I tried to use the guides to line up the silverware at the bottom but they wouldn’t snap to the guide even though I activated. why? How should I do it?

                                                            Hello everyone! I have been reading all the posts and feeling inspired. I have been working with the layers file and I am disappointed with myself. I know I am doing something wrong because my sandwich items are going to the center, but I can not adjust the placement or the sizes of the items. I will add a screenshot of my workspace. Any advice?

                                                            I am using PSP 2022. My workspace is dark gray. Sandwich 1

                                                              The first thing I noticed was you still had the pan tool selected. (the little hand at the top of the list) instead of the pick tool that is just under it.  I can’t count the times I have forgotten to go to the pic tool and wondered why things were not working and then kicked myself when I realized it.  I know better. LOL
