    So far, GIMP is working well for me. I purchased the instructions from Robert Kerry for Photoshop. The controls are close enough to where it works well. It takes a litte while at first to get a portrait ready to cut, but I'm hoping experience will win soon. is your first and best source for all of the information you’re looking for. From general topics to more of what you would expect to find here, has it all. We hope you find what you are searching for!

    rapid resizer will also work but it does take someone with creativity to work with it

    Hiya Drogers . Welcome on board.

    I like PSP for creating patterns and the tutorial that Phil's referring to is here. There's also a very good (free) online course that tells you how to use PSP in more general terms here.

    1st: Welcome to the site. I see this is your first post. I hope you like your visits.

    Many here like Paint Shop Pro. PSP is now owned by Corel Draw people, but I think was previously owned by Jasic Corp. Google for Paint Shop Pro.

    There are several other software programs like PSP which are Bit Map photo editor programs. This class of software does not perform automatic conversion from digital photo to scroll saw pattern. The complexity of the S/W allows for artistic options and choices. Some what steep learning curve, but with effort a do-able learning curve.

    The mentioned in pervious reply is reported on this site to be an easier program to learn on, but no where as powerful and flexible as PSP, or clones. (Notice the price difference also.)

    There is also shareware program that can be downloaded which works on Linux as well as Windows. Seems to be a good functional program. Try to find a download site.

    Our friend Gill from England has posted (several times now) a link to a well written instruction tutor for PSP, but I cannot find the WEB link.

    Somewhere on this forum there's a link to a website that sells a pattern for pumpkin carving that will do it. Don't remember where that thread is but it's in here somewhere.
