  • Paint Shop Pro 9?

    Hi,
    Does anyone know of any "Paint Shop Pro 9" tutorials or etc. that will help me with the program? The 502 page manual that came with it is too "technical" for a beginner.
    I want to be able to scan my drawings and digital photo to the program and be able to manipulate and make patterns for scroll saw projects. Also, be able to make portrait patterns with it.

    !

    Paint Shop Pro

    Hi Sonja....I've don't use paint shop pro, however I do sometimes use a program called Photo Impressions 3. I think there's a version 4 out now also. It does a fair job of converting photos into line drawings and has all the editing tools. It's a real "user friendly" program that doesn't employ a lot of techinal jargon. It will let you do a lot of different things with photos, much like paint shop but I think it's much easier to use. As I remember, I bought it at Wal-Mart. I believe it was under $30.00 but don't quote me on that as it's been several years since I bought it.
    If it don't fit, don't force it....get a bigger hammer!!

      Has nobody mentioned this tutorial before? Let us know if it's not what you're looking for.

        Paint Shop 9.1 Update

        If you get PSP ver. 9, pass on the upgrade to ver. 9.1!

        Did the upgrade a couple of times and always had trouble with it. The biggest ptoblem is that I couldn't read .pdf file consistantly.

          Pattern program

          Sonja.....There's a free trial download out there called Rapid Resizer. It works pretty well for converting some scanned and digital photos into partial line drawings so they can be made into patterns. Just type Rapid Resizer into your search engine and it will take you to it. I downloaded it and no spam or pop-ups came with it.

            Gill:

            That PSP write up by Andy Deane is really a great instruction into creating portrait patterns.

            I know you have posted that link before, but I wanted to thank-you for the link. I even used that link to learn on the similar product I have from Corel Corporation.

            Thanks

              Gosh, Phil, you're welcome.

              Earlier today a scrolling friend pointed out an online PSP course that she's taken. She said it was great fun and very instructive. I reckon I'll be signing up for it too, even though it's a general course, not one that's specifically aimed at scrollers.

                Rapid Resizer is very great. I use it on every pattern I scan into the computer.

                I never seem to have the right size board on hand and the program allows me to compenaste for that very well.
