    Hi Lynda. I have found that none of the versions of PSP work for plugins in the 64 bit operating system so I always use the 32 bit versions. Plus, I always have X7 and 2021 open at the same time because 2021 has a bad habit of crashing especially if I am using the magic wand and also the selection tool when I am wanting to expand, contract or feather. For that reason 2021 is not my favourite version. I am fortunate that I do save, save, save because I am then able to open the project in X7 and the magic happens. Unfortunately for me 2021 has been a waste of funds … that’s the way of it though! I have sent you a private message with some links as they do not want to post here … 4 failures, lol! ;D

    Hi Ann, reading your reply to Lynda ,  I to find 2021 crashs at everything it doesn’t like, especially plugins and even with help and a hot fix, did nothing to resolve the problems. In the end I just uninstalled 2021 and put the disc back in the box and consigned it to a cupboard and will just use 2020 as I know that works OK. I have 2019 as an alternative. Should have used the money in Carole’s store instead.

    This is not really a scrap book project, but it shows the kind of stuff I have been working on.  I have been making a serious effort to learn how to use my Paint Shop more efficiently. Cassel’s  tutorials, help pages, etc have helped a lot.  Sometime though, I just stumble on to something that I should have know three versions ago.  There is so much valuable info here it is almost overwhelming.  I hope it O K to do this.

    These are the circle doodles from Lab 11-1

    I did a little experimentation with them. I used the barbed wire line and it turned out to look like little stars or rime(hoarfrost).

    Those barbwire lines definitely look “nicer” than barbwires! Isn’t it fun what we can discover by simply experimenting?

    Hi Everyone! : ) I haven’t been here for a long while, and I see that there have been so many lovely and creative work posted in all threads on the Campus. I need more time/days to go over each one, but I just want to say hi first.

    I started again working on a layout… hopefully, I will finish it in the next days. : )

    Best wishes to everybody!

    Just as Bonnie I used Carole’s template for 2020 and came up with this one, maybe I should have posted this in the freebie challenge. Lynda very creative! Everybody has started the new year with such nice work. I cann’t keep up but come here often to see what’s new. Best wishes to you too Cristina.

    Lynda, 2021 has been a bit of a pain for me. It crashes often especially when using the magic wand and the selection tool for feathering etcetera. That is why I always have my old faithful PSPX7 open as well. X7 never fails with the use of plugins. I do not use the 64 bit as plugins are well nigh useless in it but the 32 bit will allow more to work in either version. When I have PSP open no matter what version it is always the 32 bit for ease of use with the plugins. 2021 was a waste of funds for me so I will be waiting a long time after their next release to make sure it is well and truly tested before I purchase.
    There is a site where the odd tutorial is very helpful for the inner workings of PSP – https://www.maidiregrafica.eu/tutorial/traduzioniinglese.html
    I think the site is Spanish but the link is for the English translations. There is a tab at the very top titled tut tecnici and you will find useful technical tuts in there. It will come up in Spanish/Portuguese but google will translate for you.
    If you start using Jasc Animation Shop you will become addicted. I got my certificate in animation in 2014 and this is a link to some of my Pinterest posts for my animations … interestingly I have not posted the advanced lessons results! https://www.pinterest.com.au/AnnieTobin52/animation-shop-creations/
    Love your work Lynda and it will be interesting to see what you think of the Fairymist and Maidiregrafica sites. ;D

    Hi Lynda. Here are 2a few other sites that may be useful to you.
    https://www.maidiregrafica.eu/tutorial/traduzioniinglese.html At the very top you will find a tab Tut tecnici.
    https://fairymist.pagesperso-orange.fr/pagetags/pagetags.htm
    http://www.arasimages.com/ (some animation tuts here)
    https://www.pinterest.com.au/AnnieTobin52/animation-shop-creations/ (my animations)
    If you have started with animations it is very addicting … jus warnin ya!
    I am not enamoured with PSP21, crashes consistently when using the magic wand and the selection tool for expand, contract or feather. Most of the plugins work in 2021 if you are using the 32bit. I always have two versions x7 and 21 open because all plugins work in x7 32bit (X2 and X7 are my two favourite PSP versions). ;D

    Raymond, lovely Christmas layout. I really like the clustering of the holly below.

    Sheila, your take on the MasterClass is brilliant and adorable.

    Lynda, your animation is exquisite. The twinkles add just the right touch. Bet you were a whiz on Spirograph. Your doodles are quite fascinating.

    Anne Lamp, there is some much I forget as well or move without thinking it through. It will all come together before you know it.

    Bonnie, fantastic layout showcasing 2020. Your pictures are so fun.

    Corrie, using photos of your flowers is a beautiful way to showcase the 2020 year.

    Annie, I know you posted the links mainly for Lynda, but I believe I will have to check them out as well. Thanks.

    This was a page I made for my gaming group recently; the game gives us a different theme every day. Created using KakleiDesigns contribution to January’s A Love For Layouts Hope For the Future Blog Train. The font I used is called Ink Free. The pic is something I found on Pinterest. I love templates when I don’t have a lot of time or when I have no ideas of my own.

    Karon thank you. It showed their name at the bottom and I wanted to hide it, plus it gave me some practice on using the pick took, to resize, rotate and add a shadow.

    This is not really scrapbooking (again) but it is the kind of stuff I have been playing with for years with PSP.  The picture started with a screenshot taken from an Osprey Bird nest explore sight. (https://explore.org/livecams/ospreys/audubon-boat-house-osprey-nest) that they leave up even during the off season.  Some of the other chatters look forward to my shopped to death posts and I have a lot of fun making them.

    Thanks Karon and I hope you have fun with them my friend. They are all PSP based and the little tips and tricks you pick up on are invaluable. They are also a good source of information for learning about external plugins. 😀

    I live kind of in the woods in Florida … just the way I like it really … but the trees here are over run with what I call birds of prey. Carrion eaters. Or so I thought. I don’t get too many little pretty birds – they are around – just not here in this immediate area. Maybe all the big birds just scare them away. Anyway, to make a long story short, I put out some fridge and freezer clean out stuff one morning for what I thought would be crows. Within minutes I had a LOT of big birds and I guess
    the whole “just eat carrion” is just a myth, because they were chowing down on the cranberry orange muffins, stove top corn bread/scallop patties, and hot dogs? Go figure? They didn’t leave a crumb. Obviously the crows are not going to join in with that bunch. I don’t think I will do that again. Those big birds are scary … especially when there is like 50 them! Anyway, I was playing with birds and pics and concentrated on ospreys while still playing with some of Carole’s nail heads. I love those! I did not take any of the pictures, just collected them from all around. They have mesmerizing eyes!

    I like that layout a lot, Minka. I did an Osprey layout, too, back in the summer. This shows a stand-off between an osprey and an angry Baltimore Oriole. “Get off my lawn!” 😉

    Lovely page Minka. Those birds are a little scary especially the one in the bottom left corner … I sure wouldn’t like him flying towards me with that look in his eye! Good layout, good pictures and I too love Carole’s nail heads. Well done Hon. 😀

    It would appear that I have missed several comments on pages, which I posted in December.  I do apologize for  responding.  Thank you Val for your very kind comment on  my Blue Jay page.  Corrie, that is how I acquire my supplies from the store,  I add them to my wish list, and  purchase periodically.  Mind you I have been accumulating supplies for quite some time.

    A little project I  created using a macro shot of a Flax.  I did it for the textures challenge in the maniac FB group.  I’m anxiously  waiting for  winter to give way to Spring, but I know that isn’t going to happen any time soon.

    Lynda, did you go doolally  creating those doodles, which are fabulous by the way!  lol  Everyone has been so busy creating wonderful diverse pages, it’s always a pleasure  to scroll through the pages.

    Here’s another  texture project.
