February 18, 2009 to Infinity and Beyond! ~ My PSP Work Page 2

I joined the JNCS-TutsNSuch Group
So far, Cyndi, Mary, Marie, Judy, Kat, Lil and Krys...have helped me. :)

I painted and pattern this picture.

I used pattern and tube tool for this.
Then I used text, Drop Shadow in 3d effects and selection none.

I used patterns and different tools in paintbrush for this piece.
Then I embedded it.
Then I framed it and resized it.

Saving Fonts To Windows
Font Folder on Desktop
Cut font first
Go to My Computer
Go to C Drive
Go to Windows Folder
Go to Fonts Folder
Paste in fonts folder
This works for me!

Opening Supplies in PSP
Make a folder of : Frames ~ Masks ~ Gradients ~ Textures ~ Tubes ~ Backgrounds ~ Glitter ~ etc.

go to the top of PSP, hit FILE.......PREFERENCES.........FILE LOCATIONS.......
the a box pops up, highlight MASKS,
then on the right side, hit ADD........
look for where you put them in my pictures,
then they will show up
Works for me.

and to USE your masks you would need to go to LAYERS,
Load/Save masks, load mask from disk,
then a box pops up and on the left you click
and search for the mask you want to use
Works for me.

Opening Tubes
I gotta tell you
(this is what was told to ME,cyndi, when i first did psp)
make a folder somewhere you can find it easily,
mine is called TUBES,
then when you open PSP,
go to FILE, OPEN to find your tubes,
then click and bring it into psp

Opening a tube 2
while in psp ....up at the top
,on the left is "file" click that.
When you click "open" it should open up in psp
then you will see all those folders.
Scroll over to picture tubes ,
double click and the folder will open
And when you click on a tube you will be shown what it looks like.

Getting a gradient to work.
Open a NEW IMAGE (File, NEW) doesnt matter how big
Then go to flood PAINT BUCKET on the left side toolbar.
Look at the materials palette(upper right side),
then click on the top box,
it will open, there will already be gradients in there that Jasc put there.
Pick one,
then click on the new image and flood it with the gradient.
This Works For Me.

Loading Supplies 2
I,Kat, suggested putting extra masks, gradients, patterns and textures, etc
into the My Psp Files folders.
But you are having trouble accessing the ones that are already in you PSP Program?
They should come up automatically when you go to gradients in the materials box,
or the mask dialogue box when you go to load a mask.
Works for me.

Click in one of the color boxes,
either foreground or background,
and a box will open up.
On the top you will see 3 tabs.
Color, Gradient, and Pattern.
That is how you select a gradient or a pattern.
Works for me.

If you are in PSP9,
you can find the Tube tool next to or below the eraser tool depending on where your toolbar is.
Click on the tube tool,
and a little box with a picture pops up near the top.
It has a drop down menu,
and you select whatever tube you want to use that way.
Works for me.

Supplies/Tools and Plugins
You'll see a picture of the tube tool,
called presets,
then the little picture box with a drop down button,
then to the right there are boxes for scale,
step, placement, and selection modes.
Should be 3rd row from the top
Works for me.

It's the box next to presets that has it's own drop down.
That is where you will find all your tubes
Works for me

And I,Kat, would just load the plugins,
by unzipping the zips for the filters,
taking the folders with the plugin you get from the zip,
and put it in plug ins in your psp program.
Then go to File/Preferences/files locations and tell the computer to look for that plugin in that folder.

If you don't like what you did on psp...
there is always EDIT and UNDO if you dont like something you've done

They "Gradients", dont need to be jpg or gifs hon,
if you make a path in your psp (file, preferences)
then you go to the materials palette
and click one of those color squares,
a box pops up that says COLOR, GRADIENT, PATTERN...
choose gradient and it shows up then,
then ya wanna go to your paint bucket to flood fill your image
Works for me.

What you need to Know: a plugin tutorial !

What You Need To Have:
To use filters with Paint Shop Pro
you will need some additional software.
Most filters come in sets and are zipped together for smaller downloads.
You will need WinZip or some other program for unzipping these files.
You can get them at most shareware sites .
Recently there is another method of making these downloadable files even smaller.
One of the largest of all filter sites Filter Factory Gallery
with largest collection of free filters
is now compacting sets of filters into library files with FFL extensions
before zipping them up for download.

Once you have downloaded these filters
you will need to extract them from the zip file and then use Plugin Commander
to convert them to individual filter files (8BF).
The Lite version of PICO as it is known is free.
Another method is to purchase Filters Unlimited.
This is a filter as well.
However it will put your Filter Factory type filters
in to very small compact databases structure that will save much in resources.
This in my opinion is a must have.
When you download this program read the site carefully as there are additional system
files and other information you may need to use it.
a very good site for plugins "Free" and Frames.

Last but not least you will need MSVCRT10.DLL
to use all plugin filters.
You can download it from my Free Stuff page.
Most Filter Factory filters that are 56KB will work fine with just this DLL file.
Most other filters that are not 56KB in size
will either need Filters Unlimited of PLUGIN.DLL
which only comes with Adobe products or need to be converted using PICO.
Both PICO and Filters Unlimited
will only convert Filter Factory plugins at this time however.
These required DLL files should be copied to your \WINDOWS\SYSTEM folder.
Commerical filters will have other methods and often require you to install them.
To Download : MSVCRT.10.DILL for your filters to work

Install it " MSVCRT.10.DILL " in your 'Windows' System 32 folder.
When You Get This Installed, Your Plugins will work smoothly.
It should look like this:
My Computer ~ C Drive ~ Windows ~ system 32 folder
To Download : MSVCRT.10.DILL for your filters to work

When PSP crashes or freezes for some reason and you haven't saved your work,
you can lose everything, Go to File > Preferences > Autosave settings.
This will open the Autosave Settings dialogue box,
Tick the 'Enable Autosave' box.
Set the time schedule you require, 5 minutes should be sufficient.
Click OK.
Autosave is now enabled and your work will automatically be saved to the temp file every 5 minutes.
If PSP crashes you can re-open and your work will be loaded as before.

I downloaded what looked to me as a scrap called eastereggs.
I didn't see the whole scrap in my filebox,
when I extracted it that is. So I opened up an eggscript..looked like a tool wheel on paper image.
It opened my psp and opened a new page and
then opened boxes that I hit ok for about 4 boxes,
then it opened a material box and I picked my pattern.
Then "I opened text" and put my text in,
then I dropped shadow and hit select none. and Wayla!!!!!

Looking for the right font name?

How do I reproduce the copyright symbol?
When typing in any application hold the ALT key down and type 0169

When You download a plugin ,
you want to save it in My Computer ~Cdrive ~
~My Programs ~ Jasc Software ~ PaintshopPro ~ Filters.
Then on Desktop in Windows Explorer,
open up the plugin ~ Doubleclick ~
put in a register number or code number ~
Then it should be downloaded in your psp9 .
Then take the plugin out of the filter file
and put it in plugins file.
"That way, if your psp crashes, you won't loose your plugins.
I hope!

To Open Brushes :
Save them under Marcias Brushes in My Documents.
Then go to psp9 and file and open new image.
Then go to file ~ Export ~ Create Brushes.

Keeping In The Lines when coloring:
I use my magic wand,
click on area you want to color,
and then use fill it in tool.
by Wild Rose of TWF

I can help a little bit
take your magic wand and click the area you want to fill,
click on selections/modify/expand
then in the little box, make it around two or three pixels,
this way the fill gets close to the lines
then fill the area with the color you want
also to get a bit fancy you can play with effects/3D/cut out
this will give you the shadows in the area you filled,
makes it stand out.
I hope this helps,

If you use PSP use the magic wand
Click the area you want to color and go to your Fill and
fill the area with the color of your choice..
It is easy once you learn how..
Keep on trying it does get easier.
