This month, we will meet a rare member: a man in a field full of women. But that means that PaintShop Pro and especially scrapbooking are not exclusive to women!
When working on photos, we might want to remove a background element, often a grey sky, to replace it with something "prettier" or just different. The Background Eraser tool is commonly mentioned as the tool to achieve this first step of removing the unwanted area. Although it is a great tool, it might not always work as you expect it, and it might leave you somewhat puzzled by its behavior. Let's have a look at how it works and what the various settings affect the end result for you.
Did you move a lot? Or did you stay at one house till you moved out? What is your dream house?
While a house is just a building and the people living in it have the power to make it into a home, all of us have an idea of our dream house would be like. You may want it modern, rustic, tropical, or even Mediterranean-inspired.
In the last few months, Michele has become a very active member of our community, sharing projects and layouts, participating in our games and challenges, but also encouraging others and being an inspiration herself when she shares how she creates this or that. Everyone appreciates her taking time to share that. So, what else do you know about Michele?
In the fall, we have a lot of back to school theme projects, and notebooks could be part of those projects. Adding a spiral binding to a notebook we created to showcase a photo or artwork could give that unique effect to the image. Let's see how to achieve a realistic look.
Everyone seems to enjoy animations as you can find more and more gifs on Facebook feed, and such. Photo-Mirage is a new product from the Corel family and aims at allowing the users to add some type of animation to still photos.
Nobody can do for little children what grandparents do. Grandparents sort of sprinkle stardust over the lives of little children.
Would you agree?
I bet you would! Some of your best childhood memories were those spent with grandpa and grandma and the times they spoilt you rotten with gifts, love, and attention. And those moments are great ideas for scrapbook pages.
Below are several layouts you can take inspiration from!
Whether you are doing scrapbooking, cards, or collages, you might want to extract a particular element from a photo to use separately as a decoration. There are multiple ways to select the outline of an element, ranging from the simplest Magic Wand to the Object Extractor. What tool you will use will depend on various factors, namely the type of element you need to extract, and the background that needs to be removed. However, there is one technique that is less known yet it seems to be the easier to use than most of the others.
Again, another new version of Paintshop Pro is available to you. It is called PSP2019. Let's have a look at what this version is bringing to you.
When you take pictures of objects, buildings or surroundings, you might not always be able to place yourself perfectly straight in front of it to take a centered and proportional photo. You might be at a slight angle because of the physical environment, or maybe you were just too much in a hurry to move somewhere else. Either way, there is a tool in Paintshop Pro that will allow you to fix this issue.
The circus holds a magic that most of us hold dear, especially when we were kids. The clowns, the acrobats, the animal acts, the contortionists, the dancers, the stunts, and even the ringmaster - are a delight to see under the big top!
There’s definitely something for everyone. Which act was your favorite?
Whatever resources you are collecting over time, photos, scrap kits, background images, etc. you might want to stay organized with folders and sub-folders. However, depending on the system you are using, you might still be looking for a needle in a haystack. You can probably use your search function on your computer to find specific elements or photos but there is another tool that is very convenient and works extremely fast.
This month, we will meet a new but very active member of our Campus. You can see a lot of her work in the forum.
A day at the beach - whether you’re just soaking in the sun, exploring the shore, dipping in the water, or building sand castles - is always a day to remember!
Do you have a memory at the beach that you really treasure? Maybe you even had a beach wedding! Or maybe it was a family vacation at a tropical island getaway.
Do you have a scanner at home? Typically, you will likely be scanning images and photos, save them onto your hard drive, then open them in your PaintShop Pro. But did you know you could scan from PaintShop Pro too? It is a function that has been added in recent versions of PSP, and it can save you some steps. I recently found that out, and for me, it is great news because, for unknown reasons, I can't seem to connect the scanner to my computer and scan directly. Go figure! But with PaintShop Pro's functionality, now, I can scan!
