In version X7, Corel added a new feature to PaintShop Pro called the Magic Fill. It is meant to help users get rid of elements on a photo and replace them, magically, with something that would come from the existing background. Let's explore this tool a bit further.
Nowadays, every site seems to require a login with passwords. How do you keep track of all those login credentials without getting lost? If you are a member of the Campus, you might also have an account in the Creation Cassel store, which has a different login. And furthermore, the store blog also has a different login (sorry, they are built on different platforms). It is so easy to get lost! So, here is one great tool you can you to keep everything straight: LastPass.
One fun command in PaintShop Pro is the Balls and Bubbles one. As its name implies, you can create balls (the opaque type) or bubbles (which are translucent). There are many settings available and while playing with them, you can create an infinite number of effects.
How often do you have some supplies and you want to view them but they are not displayed in your file explorer? Although you might be able to view the patterns or the frames, it is impossible to view brushes, picture tubes and preset shapes. But you can use a great tool to help you.
When creating digital scrapbook pages with PaintShop Pro, you don't need to use any fasteners since everything is flat and digital, but if you want to replicate the traditional paper scrapbooking, you might want to use paperclips. Although they come in many forms, there are some basic steps to go through in order to make them realistic.
If you were to draw on paper, you would have the option to use a ruler to draw straight lines. That is not the case when you use a graphic program. However, when you are working with PaintShop Pro, there is a simple way to draw those straight lines you need.
Whether you are a designer and create alphas for distribution, or you are just making one for your own use, there are different ways to save them. The method you will use to save your alpha might have practical reasons or just be a personal preference.
As mentioned very often in the Campus, many plugins promoted or even labelled as "for Photoshop" can work just as well in PaintShop Pro. One just has to try. I have recently discovered a whole series of plugins that are totally new to me, and they might just be little gems for you, PaintShop Pro users. Today, I will present and explore the Laplacian Enhanced plugin.
We often have photos that are good but could use an additional layer of interest with elements that either were not available at the time the photo was taken or was impossible to photograph. Whether you are talking about snowflakes, flower petals, fog, or sparkles, you can often add them from ready-made overlays.
PaintShop Pro has great tools to add colors to greyscale elements and many users take advantage of those tools. This is very useful when you have a "grey" element (or a colored one you can convert to greyscale) but if you have an element that is almost white or black, those techniques can't be used as-is.
When you work with your PaintShop Pro to create various projects, whether they are scrapbook pages, greeting cards, posters or others, you likely want to show them off. You can post your result in online galleries, on Facebook or in the forum of the Campus. Depending on how you want to share your projects, you need to be familiar with various steps in the saving process to be most efficient.
PaintShop Pro has some great tools to improve underexposed or overexposed photos. However, using a one-click fix over the complete image is not always the most appropriate solution as it will leave previously correct sections, now overexposed or underexposed. What can you do?
When you work with text, whether it is in titles or notes or journaling, you always want an option to change it, especially if you find an error after you finished your project. However, when you need to add drop shadows or bevels or other effects, you can't add them to your vectors, and keep your text editable, or can you?
