Paint Shop Pro :: Selection Tool Custom Sizing?

Apr 23, 2012

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.

Paint Shop Pro :: X4 Paste Selection

Dec 4, 2011

I have just upgraded to PSPX4 from X2, but have been using PSP since it was a JASC product. So far I am not very impressed with the new version. My first stumbling block was when I couldn't increase the canvas size on a photo that I'm restoring (9120w x 13298h). A chat session with Corel identified the issue as being a 10000 pixel limitation now being imposed. Although I can work with images >10000, I can't increase any dimension past this figure. Who had that brainwave? I had to put my image into PSPX2, increase the canvase size and then load it back into PSPX4 to continue.

Now today, another issue pops up. I can't seem to find other hits on pasting selections within the forum though, so I am raising this.

I loaded two tif images into my Edit workspace. One image is fairly small and I copied this, switched to the larger image and tried a 'paste as new selection'. This worked OK. The I switched to a paintbrush and made a small change to the main image. I then tried pasting the copied image again with 'paste as new selection'. This time the program locked up with Windows trying to find a resolution. PSPX4 then crashed. I have tried various scenario's to narrow the cause down. So far it seems that I can paste a new selection as many times as I want, but as soon as I use a paintbrush to effect even a small change PSPX4 locks up. It either then crashes, as explained earlier, or I get the round no operation mouse cursor displayed. At this point the main control box buttons (close, minimize etc.) won't respond, neither can I switch to the Manage or Adjust areas. The menu trees respond, but selecting File/Exit doesn't work. I have to use Task Manager to close the program.

I had installed SP1, but trying to identify the cause of this issue I uninstalled X4 and reinstalled the base version from CD (332). All settings were left to default. This is how I am running now, so it looks as if SP1 makes no difference. I have also tried using jpg instead of tif, but this also makes no difference. At the moment I'm thinking of ditching X4 and going back to X2.

I am running Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit with 8Gb RAM.

Paint Shop Pro :: Centering A Selection?

Aug 16, 2013

I'm using PSP 8 and suspect this will prove embarrassingly obvious...

What is the quickest way to centre a selection horizontally? IOW, the equivalent of using Objects > Align > Horz. Center in Canvas (Alt+o+a+z).

I often need to do this to shift titles if I've prematurely merged text layers into the background.

Paint Shop Pro :: X6 Not Remembering Custom Workspace?

Dec 24, 2013

Re: PSPX6 32-bit

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?

Paint Shop Pro :: Insert Into Selection Without Distortion

Feb 25, 2012

I want to copy an part of image A into an selection of picture B.

Using the command " Insert into selection" works, but i get a distortion of image A. The relation of heigth/width is changed by PSP, so that image A fits into the selection, but this is not what I need. I would prefer the parts of image A that don't fit into the selection being cropped.

Paint Shop Pro :: Creating Custom Edges / Frames?

Dec 28, 2011

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.

Paint Shop Pro :: X3 - Red Eye Removal Custom Iris Color

May 1, 2012

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?

Paint Shop Pro :: Custom Fonts Just Stopped Working All Together

Dec 13, 2012

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.

Paint Shop Pro :: Crop To Selection Creates New Image?

Aug 19, 2011

Suddenly today when I use the "Section tool" on a photo and then 'Crop to Selection' a new image is produced of the cropped selection and the old image remains. I don't want this and it has never happened before in the years I have been using PSP.

I want the existing image to be cropped and then I will save it.

How I can reset the "Selection tool' to do what it has always done? BTW I had earlier today used the "Crop" tool and ever since the 'Selection tool' has been creating a new image.

Paint Shop Pro :: Selection Is Surrounded By Coloured Line?

Jul 14, 2011

When I make a selection in a picture, the selection dotted line shows a coloured border, which is the colour of the second choice in the Materials palette. Especially if I make an addition to the selection, this coloured line runs right through the selected figure. If I copy the selection, undo the selection and then paste as a new layer, the coloured border, especially in added areas, remains visible.

how I can get rid of this strange artifact? I didn't use to have it, it emerged a few days ago.

Paint Shop Pro :: Lost Extensive Custom Toolbar Setup - 14

In the past week or two, I took time to re-create the tool button config in PSP14 that I've used for many years in Paint Shop Pro. However, the next day I see PSP14 has reset to the DEFAULT toolbars!!

Why did this happen? Was it failure to SAVE the configuration? Are my toolbars lost now? any way to restore besides button-by-button reconfig?

Paint Shop Pro :: Paste Cuts Off Bottom Portion Of Selection

May 23, 2011

I've been having a recurring problem with Paint Shop Pro X3. When I try to paste a selection into an existing image, it cuts off the bottom 5-10 pixels. I hover over the existing image with my selection, and the entire selection shows up -- I move it into place, and once I paste it on, it cuts it off -- here is a screen shot -- left side shows full image when still 'selected' -- once I right click it cuts off a part of the bottom portion.

This is a piece of another image being pasted into a blank, new image. They are sized the same height (though that doesn't matter) and after paste, chop chop.

Paint Shop Pro :: Cutting Sections Out Of Image Using Vector Selection

Jul 8, 2012

I want to cut out a section of an image and drop it onto a white background in another image.

I drew a vector point to point line around the area I wanted to copy and chose "selection from vector object" thinking that this would select the region inside the vector object. I then tried "copy merged" from the menu and pasted the clipboard into the new image. Now this didn't work and the copy only seems to copy the what is under the selection line rather than what is enclosed.

Paint Shop Pro :: Selection Using History Pallet To Extract Object

Feb 8, 2012

What is made in an exact moment (2:50) of the tutorial bellow, in which "history" pallet is used together selection to extract object. It seems to bring a better result than using "object extractor" tool.

So, my question is related to handling the "history" pallet as showed in 2:50 tutorial. It seems the "undo" is applied to the first "selection" action, but I couldn't make as in the tutorial. My PSP version is X4 and the tutorial version is X2. I don't know if something has changed and I am unable to make it in PSPX4.

Paint Shop Pro :: Bottom Pixels Deleted After Pasting Selection Into Image

Aug 13, 2011

Using the below steps causes a string of pixels to delete, and forum I visited [URL]..... with similar issues think it's a bug in PaintShop Photo Pro X3 I now have version X3 - after updates.

1. Start a new image, with solid background.
2. Selection tool, rectangle, add/shift, feather 0, anti-alias on.
3. Draw out a 3" rectangle. Flood fill or paint in the shape with a solid contrasting color. Leave shape selected.
4. Go to Edit, Copy.
5. Go to Edit, Paste as transparent selection.
6. Place the copy to the right and up against the first shape.
7. Go to selections, Select None.

Take note that there is a string of pixels that is being removed. The above steps were posted by my peers in the PaintShop Photo Pro community forum I mentioned above.

What I’ve been trying to do is Paste As New Selection from one image into another, and pixels are cut off once I click to release the selection. I’ve tried different things, like expanding the canvas of the pasted image, and other things, but nothing has worked.

Paint.NET :: Possible To Make Precision Selection Tool?

Jun 15, 2011

Develop a selection tool that can go on pixel level.If that didnt make sense I'll describe what it would do...its basically the brush tool but instead of laying down color it makes a selection.I think this will be useful for sprite artists like myself.I am well aware of the lasso tool but its just to confusing for me and slows me down and i know about the global selection option.

Paint.NET :: Text Tool - Wrap To Selection

Dec 6, 2011

In lieu of a licensed copy of Photoshop, I use Paint.NET for my general design brainfarts. I've used it for a few years now and only now have found something I dislike - a lack of word/text wrapping functionality.

So I decided I'd pop in and even remembered my account details on the first go (woohoo! This never happens) and drop a request for this functionality, as much as I hate requesting things in general due to a patholo--moving on. My vision is thus:

Step 1. Enable Word Wrapping (a button up here, assumedly). This would ideally have a dropdown also allowing you to change whether it wraps on whitespace only or mid-word with a hyphen. Step 2. Make a selection. If there is no selection, it wraps to the image border. Step 3. Type. When the text hits the right (or left, for right-aligned text, or exceeds the width of the selection/image for center-aligned) it will wrap at the appropriate point. When out of vertical space the text would merely be cut off as it is now. Bonus points: Make center-aligned text centered relative to the selection. Justified text would also be possible when there are given bounds, but who even uses that? Sheesh.

As it is now, text is based only on an anchor point (and is rasterized only - no editable text is a bearable downside for the gigabyte of memory I save from what I last saw of Photoshop, but that's not saying I don't often want for it), having text based on selection bounds if a selection exists would be a very user-friendly way of making it all much more powerful. I know Paint.NET isn't a word processor but nicer text handling would be a big plus for those of us who use it for more design-oriented purposes. As noted, text being editable objects (I don't much like the 'text layer' thing, but I can't honestly think of a better way) would be cool too.

Paint Shop Pro :: Get Grips With Pen Tool

Jun 18, 2013

I am trying to get to grips with the pen tool and I have a problem I cant get past. I create on object using the pen tool and then use the pick tool as I want to do a specific rotation buy a certain number of degrees. But I need to move the rotation point. I click on Ctrl and then the rotation point and move it to another location. Now if I want to rotate by hand or 15 degree increment then no problem.

But if I wish to rotate by say 20 degrees then I can only use the Image Free rotate but for some reason it rotates object by the center of the object and just ignores its new rotation point. I just cant see why?

Illustrator :: Selection Tool Suddenly Acting Like Direct Selection Tool During Click-and-drag

Aug 22, 2012

This morning, my Selection Tool (the filled-in arrow) is acting like a Direct Selection Tool (the hollow arrow), but only when I click and drag on a group.  It ends up select the anchors within the group rather than the whole group itself.
I've checked my preferences, quit and relaunched Illustrator a few times, and nothing seems to fix it.  The problem briefly went away a few minutes ago, but came back when I quit and relaunched for good measure.
It's happening in Illustrator CS 5.1.  I have CS6, and that version works fine, but I'm waiting on some plugins to be updated for it, so I'd like to use CS 5.1.  I'm also running the latest Suitcase Fusion 4.
