    This class was packed, in more than one way.

    It was FULL, meaning we reached the maximum of attendees allowed (100) and some people might have arrived late, to a locked door. I am sorry. I have never reached that level of attendees in one of my classes. It is fantastic. I guess the topic was important and interesting to a lot of people.

    It was also FULL of content. I didn’t even have a chance to go through all the scripts and types of scripts I wanted to explain. I didn’t get to answer Valerie’s question about what editor I was using (I am using Notepad++ by the way).

    I think there is plenty of content to do another class on the topic, where I can demonstrate more types of scripts (based on what you would suggest). What would you think of that?

    And by the way, there was an error on the link to purchase the class package. I have fixed it so, just click on the link again, in your email.

    Sorry for the inconvenience. I could see several people trying to access it but were redirected to the wrong offer.

    Thanks a lot, that was another really interesting subject, Carole, may be you could plan the same subject for the next webinar , as you did for the templates.

    I was so curious that I tried out the alpha maker-script afterwards, (instead of going to bed ….. LOL, in Germany past midnight). Someone among the other participants asked how to go on with the characters and I answered, I think you  moved them.

    During my experiment I discovered that for example the number 1, trying several fonts, appears often just as a line, (do not know how to explain it exactly) and sometimes other numbers or characters are not shown completely but just a part of it.  May be a problem if you choose outlines, thickness or order ?

    Test 1 result: numbers 1 and 2, the 2 doesn’t appear completely
    Test 2 result: number 1, then L and I, the character I doesn’t appear completely

    Both with PSP 2019. The font is century gothic here.

    Libera, what were all the options you used? What thickness of outline? Did you choose it uneven? Did you use 3600×3600 px papers? or smaller?

    As for answering during the class, you are welcome to do that. It helps others while I am unable to see the questions.

    With over 100 attendees during the live class and now 60 people have watched the replay (yes, I see that kind of stats but I don’t know who), only 14 have filled out the survey! As we plan on having a follow-up class on Scripts, it is time to add your questions, or tell me what part might not have been explained enough or that you wanted to hear about but didn’t, etc.

    Com’on! Fill that survey.

    Next time, I plan on demonstrating even more scripts so if there are some that you don’t understand how to use, or some you are considering purchasing but are hesitant, it is the time to mention them.

    Sorry Carole,

    I would have written about the options before, but I was in a hurry suddenly, I had to go to work …and I was playing around with PSP before going… LOL

    First of all  I used 1000×1000 px, for another test 2000×2000 px, for the last one 3600×3600 px (upload here). No difference. Most of the time the same effect. Only 1 of 5 tests was successful.

    Fonts for ex. Bauhaus 93, 100, Century Gothic, 128, Hobo, 128, thickness of outlines, the first was 4 (test 1) then 2, one time in order, another randomly, never irregular outline.

    I thought initially the issue is using characters with figures together. But now here the uploaded image proves the contrary, this time created with PSP 2018, it should have been “Nathan” and I only get Nat and these errors.

    Libera, would you be able to send me BY EMAIL, a screenshot of your entire workspace when you run the script?

    You could also record the whole process using Loom (useloom.com). It is free and it would allow me to see what is going on while the script runs. Sometimes, it can give me a hint about what is happening.

    Yes, Carole, I prepared screenshots of the different steps and will sent them later per mail!

    For those who will read this, I discovered thanks to Carole what was the mistake I did. Instead of clicking directly on the script button, I opened first a new image, then clicked on the cass-Alpha-Maker, went on till the end and wondererd why I didn’t have all the characters I gave in at the beginning. I was so used to open first an image using the other scripts that I misunderstood it although I read the tutorial.

    Alpha-Maker is really one of those wonderful scripts you like to go on playing with endlessly 🙂

    Hi everyone, for some reason I downloaded the VectorPaint script in the store , probably I saw something about that in a webinar or here in a class on the scrapbook campus, but I can’t find anything more about it and I’m giving this script a try but it doesn’t work the way I try, where can I find some explanation about this script? thank you in advance

    Marie-Claire, what did you do and what result were you getting? What is different from what you expected?

    I actually don’t know anymore how and what you can use the script for.
    I have downloaded it, so I will have seen an explanation by you about it in a tutorial or webinar I suppose. Probably a while ago and have now forgotten how to use the script.

    Oh ok. So here are the steps:

    • make sure you have a vector object selected, and that it is a PATH (right-click on it with the Pen tool and if Convert to Path is available, click it)
    • choose a brush tip with the settings you want (size, step, etc.) and the settings from the Brush Variance (F11) palette too (size jitter, position jitter, color jitter, etc.) and the color
    • run the script

    What do you get?

    Oh my, scripts are so addictive! 🙂

    Instead of finishing projects for the study group I tested several scripts and loved it! 🙂
