Emphasis is a design technique that can be used to draw attention to a particular element on a page. You might want to put focus on a photo, a piece of text, or memorabilia. The use of the emphasis principle can make a design more dynamic and interesting. It can also help to guide the viewer’s eye through a design and to create a sense of priority. When used correctly, the emphasis principle can add visual interest and impact to a design. Let's look at a few different ways that you can go about adding emphasis to your scrapbook pages.
Import content from previous versions
In older versions of PaintShop Pro, all the content installed by default was limited to that version. You could add more supplies but each version kept track of its own resources. If you wanted to use supplies from a previous version, you had to do some manual work. However, with version 2019, PaintShop Pro came with the option to import content from previous versions.
What file goes where in PaintShop Pro?
PaintShop Pro can handle a lot of files of different types, but do you know which ones? When you purchase or download supplies for various projects, online, where do you save all those files so you can use them correctly later? This is a question several users have asked me, in various ways. Let's have a look at all the files and file types you might encounter and where you should put them.
6 Design Principles in scrapbook pages
Design principles are important for scrapbook pages because they provide a framework for creating a visually appealing and well-designed layout. The six design principles that will be mentioned in this article are emphasis, repetition, alignment, balance, contrast, and flow.
Even though we might not consciously think of those principles, they will play a role in whether we like the overall design, or not. When creating a scrapbook page, we can keep these design principles in mind in order to create a visually appealing layout.
Balance refers to the distribution of elements on the page and can be either symmetrical or asymmetrical. Rhythm refers to the repetition of elements on the page, which can create a sense of movement.
Proportion refers to the size of the elements on the page in relation to each other. Unity refers to the overall cohesiveness of the page, and how the elements work together to create a unified design. Variety refers to the use of different elements on the page, such as color, texture, and pattern.
By keeping these design principles in mind, you can create scrapbook pages that are not only visually appealing but also well-designed.
Using QR codes in digital scrapbooking
When creating a scrapbook page, everything is static and quiet. How can you add other mediums like sound, music, videos, or additional references for your story? Although you might not be able to add those directly to the page, you can link to them using a QR code. Let's see how you can do that.
How to create custom washi tape
Although you can use any paper to create straight and flat washi tape, you might want to add some creases and textures to it. The simplest method would be to use real tape, take pictures, and extra them with PaintShop Pro. But you probably don't have the tape in the exact color or pattern you want. But you can use templates for that.
What font did you use?
Once you work on a project and put it aside for a while, you might be looking for that particular font used in the title or the journaling. How can you find out what it was? Do you have to scroll endlessly through your list of fonts? Not at all. There are simpler ways for that.

Keeping texture on text
When adding text that replicates handwriting or printing, it can look like it is not really part of the project. If you write or print on something that has a texture, the inked area will still show that texture. How can you do that using PaintShop Pro?
