    just registered!! Honestly, I’m not sure yet if I’ll be using jasc psp9 or psp2021, because on the latter I’m not really that comfortable yet.
    Moreover, I take this opportunity to ask a quick question about the psp2021: in the gradients, I cannot find the “foreground/background” gradient …. normal or not ??

    I found all the pieces of my creation on  google search.  Since I have done the boot camp several times I wanted to try to do something different.  I actually created a slice of bread but did not much like the way it turned out.  I added alvacado slices to mine and ham instead of bologna.   Had to cut out each piece of the silverware, all veggies and bread and I created the place mat, and dishes with PSP 2021.

    Hi love you guys Sandwiches 🙂

    I used free images on Bing like here:  https://www.bing.com/images/  the table cloth and the rose.

    I had trouble with my shadows all my settings were messed up and I don’t know what the default is on them like

    before in bootcamp.     It was so much easier this time, but I have problems with  what settings things should be on,

    and

    layers.  But my understanding is so much better really.     Wished I could cut my sandwich don’t know how,  wished

    I could make my top break  sorta invisible to show my veggies 🙂  but don’t know how.

    Cassel what are the settings should be on the Shadows this video didn’t show it I think?

    Sue, hope you are up-to-date with the emails. When registration is later, sometimes, it delays some emails.

    Susan, I hope you will also share your Christmas card in the What are you working on? thread.

    Ann, amazing how those sandwiches change with every bootcamp!

    Wanda, looking forward to seeing the greats! That is a cute placemat.

    Helen, although shadows were not necessary in this exercise, it is still a good practice.

    Colin, did you add those condiments in a new layer? (since we can’t see it, you can say you did!) Working without the tabs will resemble more the work with various images if you were on your kitchen table 🙂

    Anne, I think you are the first one to convert the cup into a glass to add milk!

    Nadine, the Foreground-Background gradient seemed to have been “forgotten” in later versions, but don’t worry. Go to your PSP9, and copy the file and save it in your own custom folder. OR, if you keep your PSP9, just point PSP2021 to the location of the gradients in 9 and you will be able to access it.

    Cindy, the sandwich exercise didn’t have any suggested shadows. That would scare newcomers! Wait until later in the bootcamp, and once we start talking about shadows, you can come back to this exercise. To make the top invisible, click on the little eye icon on the left of the layer you want to hide.

    Love You guys!

    Yes to hide it the eye but I meant how can I make my top bread transparent?

    THANK YOU

    Hello Everyone. This is my second time in the Bootcamp. I enjoyed it so much and I wanted to practice again with all the PSP tools I learned to use the first time around.

    Here are my workspace preferences:

    Color: Dark Grey on Edit workspace, Tools toolbar on left docked, Standard, Status Tools on top, Materials on top right  docked, Layer palette floating, Organizer on bottom closed, Learning Center closed.

    Here is my first picture for Day 1 which shows curious “Bella” who is probably thinking about which book to knock of the shelve.

    my day2 sandwich )))
    I use one of my plaid made for big10 for the background, and the lines used for this plaid (with effects store & texture fur), for the cutlery, I used the eye candy impact-chrome for the metal and glass for the handles, as well as for the cup-)
    for the coffee, I use filter forge for an effect dirty, and then blur.
    For the sandwich : filter forge for the texture bread, and my own photos of salade and tomatoe extracted, onions extracted from photos Pixabay royalty free
    hope I don’t forget something LOL
    oops I forgot my plate: made with my circular element of the big10 made with a personal blue ribbon, recolored and put an interior bevelling effect, then added a background

    Cindy – I love your sandwich. If this is what you wanted to do here is how to do it. I remember when I first started using Paintshop for some reason it took me a while to figure that out.

    I’m a little late to the table (pun intended).  Here’s is my lunch.  I had this fabulous company called “The Big-10” come in and install my new linoleum flooring.  Carole, the installer, even taught me how to install my own linoleum…for next time.  Installer and teacher, a one of a kind service for sure!  So why not have a picnic on the new floor.  I’m having tomato soup with tea while darling hubby has a clubhouse sandwich, this time with onions.  When I went to get some napkins he cheekily (new word?) put one of his pickles into my soup.  He is having some hot chocolate.  I reduced the opacity on the soup and hot chocolate so you could see part of the spoon.  the bowl and sandwhich plates are sitting on charger plates (after all, we are civilized..well, sort of).  The charger plates are made of blue transparent glass(ie. reduced opacity). you can sort of see the lino through them.  I reduced opacity on the pickle so it looks like it sunk into the soup.  Lunch was yummy, although the cats kept thinking it was their meal (we dont feed them people food, but they try).

    Just as a reminder, if you are new to this, and want to use only the original supplies for the sandwich exercise, it is perfectly ok. Some participants are just getting over-excited! Don’t worry, they started at the beginning too! 🙂

    And for those getting excited and adding more, thank you for sharing what you did and how as it will help our newcomers.

    Day 1

    Workspace, dark gray; background, medium gray, complete toolbar and Edit tab.  I turn on rulers, guides and snap to guides as needed. I don’t have them showing all the time.

    Most likely the pickleball group photo will be used. Here is a screen shot of my workspace.

    I got out the nice silverware for this open face BLT. And I must say I got very hungry preparing it! I used some copyright-free cutlery images and practised drawing and editing vector images for the sandwich ingredients. I forgot to add drop shadows!

    Love all the different tables and sandwiches.  Seems like we all have favorite foodies.  Mine was roast beef (altered the original meat slice), went to the NicePng store and got lettuce (romaine), pickle, mayo, tomato sliced, onion sliced, fries; the tablecloth I made while I was obsessing over plaids (love Reflection Effect), but when the effect wouldn’t work, I just pulled the rectangle down for the stripes to begin the making of the plaid.  Of course the pink and metal cutlery is just color changing.  Lots of fun.

    I now have the pictures I will use for the balance of the project.

    OK – I do have to comment.  Ann Seeber – always love your LO, but where is your napkin?  I think you are the one who had a napkin on the table last time.  I can’t make the napkin, although I think I tried last time.

    Cindy: like your tablecloth – and putting the top bread in transparent does show all the goodies inside.

    Pirkko: like your wooden table and the placemat.

    Susan: Your linoleum is so clean – I’ll eat with you on the floor.  Tomato soup is one of my favorites.

    Nadine:  Where can I buy that gorgeous plate?  Just kidding!  Loved it when you showed it in blue also.

    Hi Brenda, I started in May this year.  You will enjoy this bootcamp and this forum.  I’ve learned a lot and I am someone who’s had limited time with PSP (due to work and other life stuff).  I’m finally getting to put in more time and have learned the more time I put in, the easier and more natural it feels.  I’m still taking baby steps, soon I’ll be walking!

    I love the variety of sandwiches/table set up I’ve seen today.  Can’t wait to see where you all go with your layouts.  For now, off to work (boo).

    Day 3  My background came from a friend on my website when we had a share day.  It was gray and white and very small.  I used the hue/saturation to change the color and stretched it out to fit my 3600X3600 canvas.  I added the texture called grain long, The bubbles are tubes I believe they came with a version of PSP but not sure, the title font is Curlz MT and I forgot to write down the font I used for her name.  The Disney Mermaid stickers I found on google search and cut them out.  I had to force myself to remember how to put the shadows on the bubble.  It took me awhile but I finally remembered after using the undo on several things that did not work.  I wanted to create my own clear bubbles but did not have time to do that today.

    Day 3

    The Great American Pickleball Marathon was on 9-11-2021. Pickleball players all over the US met with their local groups to play pickleball to honor all those who were lost or injured on 9-11 20 years ago. Groups registered, made a donation to Wounded Blue, which benefits wounded and disabled police officers, and played on their local courts. A great day, a great cause. Paddles up, America!

    Cindy, I think that Anne has the explanation for you if you want the bread to be see-through, but still visible. I had never heard Judge Judy say that, but I guess she is right!

    Anita Wyatt, are you a cat lady by any chance? All those cat books can be a clue!

    Nadine, what a creative way to use the Circular element tutorial to make a plate, and the result is great! I think you are the first one to do that!

    Susan, that is a great way to show more layers manipulations as you are playing with the transparency.

    Bonnie, so many people in this community have learned about pickleball. Keep showing us more and more! That picnic looks good. There are so much we can get on that site!

    Connie, it is ok about the shadows. That is something I won’t bring up in this exercise (but watch out later! 😉 )

    Pirkko, interestingly, even though I am right-handed, I keep my fork on the left too since I will use my knife with the right hand. Isn’t that the standard way to set silverware?

    Mary, I think I will be stealing your fries. They look delicious! And yes, the shadows would make a difference (although this was not required for this exercise).

    Brenda, you might want to create a saucer under your cup. You would not want to stain your white tablecloth with your tea or coffee 🙂

    Wanda, for the bubbles, have you considered making the shadows wider and more blurred? After all, bubbles would not be very opaque, right?

    Laurie, what are you drinking? Tomato juice? whatever it is, you will need a saucer to save your nice tablecloth!

    Welcome again to the newcomers, and to all those who have not posted yet, don’t be shy! We are here to encourage you and support you.
