Using X4 on Windows 7. I'm trying to create a series of custom edges to supplement those already supplied in X4. I've created the edge ok and exported it as a frame and it works ok. The problem is selecting it in the dropdown menu under Image/picture frames. Whereas the thumbnails of the supplied edges have grey shading to represent the transparent section of the edge, mine don't, they are just plain white and that makes it difficult to know what edge to select. What have I done wrong? I've opened a couple of the supplied edges and they look similar to mine ie no shading.
Just came upon an error I had not seen before. Though PSP no longer supports Animation Shop, up until PSP X4, the user has been able to export frames back to PSP from Animation Shop. Now, this no longer works! There's still some communication there, because an error message - which, incidentally, makes absolutely no sense at all - is generated in PSP X4:
I have an ancient version of Paint shop pro X. It worked fine for what I used it for-making note cards and simple stuff with photos. That was all fine until my computer died. OK I had the disc and install on new computer but now all the features do not seem to be working-ability to change color of the fill area etc.
Tried messing with that for a couple of days to see if I could get it to look like it did on the old computer-no such luck.
Now I download free trial of Paint shop Pro 6-great most of what I needed seem to be working and easy to do. But now I want to add picture frames and there is a very limited selection and when I tried to manipulate a previous version of a picture + frame+ texture only on the frame part-now the texture went all over the picture/space.
What gives here? I am very technically challenged and wish I could get my old version to work right and I would be happy. The layers of the new version give me a real headache and don't know that I can figure that out now-didn't need to do that on the old version. I was used to the old way and want that back on the new computer.....
I was doing a tutorial the other day that required animation shop. It required that I export the frames from AS to PSP and then back when done. When I started using PSP, I used X2. In taking lessons, I found that I needed to have PSP9 installed on my computer for the export frames to work properly. When I got X3, export frames worked fine. Now in X4, I tried to export frames from AS to PSP and it doesn't work. No error message, just a computer sound letting me know that nope, that's not going to work.Or am I going to have to use X3 whenever I do something that requires AS?
I know that x6 comes with limited Picture Frames. I loaded, via preferences, the x5 set of frames that I had been using. All was well. Now my frames have vanished. (All but the original limited set). I've tried to reload them into x6. But x6 is refusing to find them. I'm using 64bit. Was before when all was well. Why can't preferences find them now? The thing is I rarely use Picture Frames so I may have forgotten how to reload them via Preferences.
(For interest sake I fired up x5 and the frames have also gone from it. The location was /My Documents/Corel Paintshop Pro/16.0/Picture Frames. The files are still there).
I have some photos of old magazine covers, some of which weren't taken straight on, so that the covers aren't square. With previous versions of Paint Shop Pro, I could drag a corner out until it made the image look square [actually, rectangular], but I can't figure out how to do it with this version.
i have just downloaded a trial version of Paint Shop Pro X6 because I'm looking for a program that will go a good job on oval vignettes with soft (feathered) edges.
I can open the program and select a picture from my files. Through the videos I learned how to identify some of the PSP X6 tools. I click on the Ellipse tool on the lower left in the tool bar. Then it gets weird. Sometimes I'll make an ellipse on the photo and the ellipse outline stays there. Sometimes when I do this an oval is created. Every time an oval is created my picture is the background, and the part of the picture I want is white. It's like it's doing it backwards. I've seen the tutorials about selecting INVERT, but I've had no luck whatsoever with that.
This should be a very simple process, but I'm totally mystified how it works. I used to run a very simple program years ago that Microsoft put out called PictureIt. I really liked that program but it's outdated now and it won't work on the Windows 7 64 bit I'm using. I have tried several programs and Paint Shop Pro X6 seems to be the closest to Pictureit that I can find, but I'm expecting PSP X6 to be more advanced, precise, and better overall. In PictureIt I'd do the exact steps I just mentioned and the area I selected would be the oval picture, the rest was white, and then I feathered the edges. In PSP X6 it's mostly like that, but it's reversed. The picture I want is the background.
I have just started using the Paintshop Pro X4. In fact, I am still using the trial version and I want to use it so I can see if I want to buy it in a couple of weeks. However, I am not really very knowledgeable about computers, computer language and all the technical stuff. So things have to be pretty obvious to me.
Just for practice, I have downloaded a photo of a cherry and a leaf. Not great art, but a nice clear photograph. Of course I want it to be larger than the thumbnail image, so I have blown it up to 6"x6" Now the edge of the cherry, the leaf and the stem are all jagged. I know that is because of the pixels - but I still want to know how to get around it and smooth the edges when I enlarge something.
I got a message to install service pack 1 this morning. Since then every time I load PSP the workspace is the default workspace and all of the tools I had added to the toolbars are missing. If I load my custom workspace from the load menu, it makes no difference, it just refreshes the screen and nothing changes. Also every time I load the program it displays the Learning Center and Organizer tabs, even though I keep disabling them.
I tried resetting everything back to the defaults but it doesn't work. Should I do a new re-install or is there something I'm missing?
I'm currently going through a batch of digital photos I took of my nephew, some of which have serious red eye issues.
using the inbuilt red eye removal tool under the adjust drop down has proven quite useful, but I am limited in terms of iris colors. none of the default colors seem to be a good match for his own eye color and they are noticeably inaccurate in the final result. is there any way to either mix the default iris colors then save the new color, or add extra colors any other way?
I know you can custom size the selection tool by pixel position, but Is it possible to set the custom size of the selection tool to inches? For example I would like to have a custom size of 5 x 7 inches so I can place over an area and simple copy and then paste that 5 x 7 selection as a new image.
Just today, while making graphics and such, my custom fonts just stopped working all together. Every single one that I have installed just shows up as nothing and is un-selectable when using it. The one in particular that i was using is Bebas Neue. Although all installed fonts are not working either.This happened out of the blue and I don't remember hitting anything or changing anything. Just typing with the font and it refused to show.
Steps Taken: 1. Reset All Preferences 2. Shift Key Trick on Load Up 3. Restarting the Computer 4. Reinstalling PSP X2 5. Using the font in other programs - Which they WORK (Word, GIMP, Adobe Illustrator, etc.) 6. Uninstalling/Reinstalling the Font itself.
Trying to follow tutorials to create text. They all say to choose type (vector, floating, or selection) from the box on the text toolbar. I have been over it with a microscope and can't find it. I have expanded all arrow flyouts - nothing.
I have some photos that might look good as a tryptich or "broken-up" into even more components of equal size and then framed separately. Is there a relatively easy way to do this with PSP X5? I saw a youtube tutorial on doing this in Photoshop that included overlaying some guide lines over the image and then repeatedly cropping and saving the resulting image.
I haven't found the right tool to do this in X5, though I assume such a thing exists. And I'm not sure how to describe the thing to file search. I've tried freehand cropping, but it is pretty inexact. Is there a way to get a more accurate sizing?
Also to those who have done this before. How important is accurate sizing of the component images? Is "close - enough" good enough? I keep wishing there was a wizard available where I could specify the number of rows and columns a photo could be broken up into and then have the wizard do the cropping and auto saving of the resulting image.
I have an HP Pavilion dv7 laptop with preinstalled PS Photo Pro X3, so no CD/DVD. I need to reformat my hard drive to make it dual boot Win/Mac but I would then like to reinstall PSP X3. Is it possible to create installable CDs/DVDs from the preinstalled (or downloaded?) version? If it's not possible, am I entitled to CDs/DVDs from Corel, or can I download and use my current serial number/registration info to activate the product?
I seem to have a ( ongoing) or a series of problems trying to create a video from still Photos or a video that I take with my little Sony cyber shot camera. I believe that the entire problem is the file extensions. I get UDF,MOFF,MP4 to name a few.
MY Camera produces MP-4 photos I download them as such do I have to change or convert them? I tried to convert some to wmv but that did not work . I get a message that windows photo viewer may not be working and could need an update if that is needed where would I get that? I need to know what has to be done . I use corel video studio x5 and also corel paintshop pro x4.on windows 7.0.
Up to now, I have been unable to find a tool within PSPX3 to do the following:
Suppose I have loaded a .JPG file into PSPX3. Now I want to draw a smooth curve on this picture by picking a suitable set of points in the picture that will be connected smoothly with a nice curve. All I am able to perform is drawing a somehow ragged curve by (approximately) moving the cursor along the envisioned curve, but this ends up just looking awful. From my math studies, I remember something that is called a (B-)spline curve. Is there any version of PSPX... that allows (B-)spline curves? Similar/easier: simple polygons?
(A) Put in dimentions of dvd cover. FILE>NEW..etc It asks me then; RESOLUTION PIXAL/CM ( what does this mean???? obviously i want the best output possible..but i have a range of photos taken from various cameras for my dvd cover to include...i dont know what resolution they are all sitting at? What do i do? Max it out...to the highest..or the lowest?
And what the..is the choice of RASTER/ VECTOR background?? I just want a plain background to then place into a range of different sized photos.
(B) I can cut out a photo etc...but how do i place some photos onto the blank dvd cover? Everytime i click on an image..it covers the previous? and i cant seem to resize to whittle it down..to work with it...can find my original dvd cover? Is this layer? If so...do i put the blank dvd cover on layer 0?? or layer 1? Then what? I bring in a photo onto ...layer 0 or 1?
(C) Finally, Rulers...despite opting for dimensions in cm or indeed millimeter for my dvd cover...i just want to mark out exactly the front and back and side of it. How do I drag / get a rular to mark this out.
This is something that I could do very easy with PS, just CTRL + click in the layer and the object get a selection around it. How I can create a selection for an "floating" object? Sometimes I need to remove some pixels around the object I cant find a way to select the contour of the object again.
New to Corel and am interested in whats called png? I am a Sketch up user (3d cad program) and would like to create portion of my model that I can see through. is there a youtube video that would show me how this is done or explain in elementary term how to do this? I included a gimp video so you can see what I'm trying to do .
I have seen photos where the background is black. Is it possible to do this with Photo Pro X3 Ultimate? If so, how? I'm retired (read as "older" and not as sharp as a younger person) and new at digital photography.
Okay I am using Photoshop CS2 on Windows. I downloaded some jpg frame images from the net. They are black and white mask image I want to apply this frame/border to my personal images. Is there a simple way to do this?
I have just discovered that the Plugin Site Galaxy Edges & Frames CD cant be used in Live Effects in Graphic Designer 7.
These are the instructions on their CD for using with Xara, but after create bitmap and export i cant get it to work properly!!
1. Import the photo file you want the frame to be applied to with Import from the File menu. 2. Import one of the frame files from the frame sub folder with Import from the File menu. 3. Select the Bitmap Gallery from the Utilities menu. 4. Right click on the frame file in the Bitmap Gallery and select Apply as transparency from the context menu. 5. Use the handles of the frame object to make it the same size as the photo. Makes sure that the frame lies over the photo. 6. Choose Select All from the Edit menu or press Ctl +A to select both objects. 7. Choose Group from the Arrange menu or press Ctl+ G to combine both objects. 8. Select Create Bitmap Copy from the Arrange menu or press Ctl+ G to combine both objects. 9. In the Create bitmap option dialog make sure that the correct settings are set (e.g. that the color depth is set to 24bit) and press the Create button. 10. Save the created bitmap with Export from the File menu.
