Paint Shop Pro :: X5 / Squaring Up Image Edges?

Oct 23, 2013

Paint Shop Pro X5.

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.

how to square up the edges of an image?

Paint Shop Pro :: Smoothing Enlarged Image Edges

Jul 12, 2012

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.

Paint.NET :: Squaring Up Oblique Face

Sep 9, 2011

I'm looking for a function that lets me take a rectangular face viewed from an oblique angle, and square it up as if I were looking straight at it.

For example (can't draw pictures to show you what I mean), suppose I take a photo of an apartment building while I'm standing across the street and off to one side. I need a tool that lets me click on the four corners of the building's face and un-distorts the face, making it rectangular.

I have used a non-PDN tool (GIMP? Photoshop?) that had this capability. We used it to model the buildings at [URL] .... from actual photos.

Now I'd like to do this with PDN. I read about Evan Olds' Quadrilateral Reshaping and dpy's Perspective Effect. I've installed both plug-ins, and while they can do the trick with a little nudging, they're not exactly what I'm looking for.

Photoshop :: Squaring Up An Image

Jan 8, 2009

I have a photo of a painting. Somehow the image became distorted between the painting and the camera such that while the top, left side and the bottom are OK the right hand side slants inwards from bottom to top - ie: the top is narrower than the bottom.

Its not a big slant and I could probably trim up the right hand side (but I'd be getting close to the artist's signature) or use the clone tool to try and fill in the missing area.

However since the image is all there, just a bit compressed towards the upper right hand corner, is there any plug in (or other procedure) that would let me pull out the pixels toward the upper right?

Using PS7 and windows 2000.

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 :: Oval Vignettes And Feathered Edges?

Dec 3, 2013

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.

Paint.NET :: How To Fill Text With Image But Keep Anti-aliasing On Edges Of Image

Sep 18, 2013

Here is what I want to do.  I have the letters 'XC' which I've played with a bit to look the way I want and due to anti-aliasing has nice edges.  Now I want to basically fill those letters with an image.  I can't figure out how to do this and keep the nice anti-aliased edges.
Current steps:

1. load image as base layer
2. Create new layer with text in it
3. using magic wand select a threshold that has smoothest edges on text layer
4. select image layer and copy the selection area... notice the hard edges of the finished result in the attached example.  I want it nice and smooth and anti-aliased.
How to do this more elegantly?  I've attached the basics of what I'm doing and the result.

Paint.NET :: White Edges Of Cut Image

Mar 17, 2011

I am attempting to make some combined images to make jewelry for my family but when I cut out an image from one picture and paste into a new layer above a different background, my cut image has white surrounding it, even after I have gone into 1600 zoom and removed all traces of white. I think the cut image is clean then I tell the program to print preview and wow, serious white outline, how to get rid of it? It sure makes my final print really juvenile and cheezy. Using v3.5.8. to cut out images. Using ms Word to resize, layer and group images although I seem to have the same issue using too.

Paint.NET :: Can Center Edges Of Image

Jul 20, 2013

I'm creating a sprite-sheet and therefore need to be able to focus on certain parts of the image, at a time.
This however, is proving surprisingly difficult as I can't figure out if there is any way to pan my view of the image so that any part of its edges is centralized on my screen. Is there any way to do this or are there any relevant plugins available?

AutoDesk Smoke :: Image From Paint Module And Bad Edges In Action?

Sep 20, 2011

When I use Paint module with Graphics menu, I get bad edges randomly on the image in action. The default setting of Anti-aliasing in paint module is 4 now, and I have tried to change the value from 4 to 1, 1 to 4. the only differences are the amount of, position of bad edges.

Paint Shop Pro :: How To Create Image Of DOT To Add To Another Image

Dec 19, 2011

I have an image of a map and want to create a number of individual images of that map each with a large white dot with a black edge (to highlight different cities).

I have created a separate image of the dot using both transparent background and normal background and then attempted to use EDIT>COPY the image of the dot and then EDIT>PASTE to the image of the map but no matter which PASTE option I use I cannot achieve what I want to.

Also (different problem) I lost my MATERIAL PALETTE. I noted that to restore it I could use VIEW>PALETTES and select MATERIALS but it was already selected. I also used the F6 key without success. I had to start PSP by pressing the SHIFT key when I started it to restore PSP to its defaults and then I could select and display it. So what stopped me from displaying it in the first place?

Paint Shop Pro :: How To Save RAW (CR2) Image

Aug 25, 2012

A client sent me four images taken with his Canon camera - they are in Canon Raw (.CR2) file format. I can't get them to open and then save them as a .jpg or a .pspimage format in either PSP9 or in X3. In X3, when I click on the pic, it brings up the "Canon RAW Lab" dialogue box, showing a black and white image but with a deep pinkish cast to it. And there is no options to save it. What do I do from here?

Paint Shop Pro :: Getting Rid Of Image Join

Dec 1, 2012

I am using PaintShop Pro X5 & PaintShop Photo Pro X3

I have an image which was originally made up of two other images side by side. They are both of similar colours and content but the dividing line between them is quite obvious. I don't have the original PSP files in order to use the selection and layer method of feathering them, so what would be the best way to get the pixels to blend across the join? I thought there was a tool in PSP to do this but can't find anything.

Paint Shop Pro :: V12 / How To Do A Transparent Image

Dec 30, 2011

I have 2 gif images. On image2 I have erased the background so as all you see is the checkerboerd.I want to place image2 (the visible part) on to image1.

I'm sure I have done all the correct procedures but the #2 image will show either a black or white background when pasted on to image 1.

These are the rules I followed. To make one image color transparent

1. Choose Image Palette Set Palette Transparency. If you are prompted to reduce the color depth and number of layers, click Yes to continue and then choose the options for decreasing color depth.

2. On the Set Palette Transparency dialog box, choose one of the following options:

• Set the transparency value to the current background color — makes the background color transparent

• Set the transparency value to a palette entry — specifies a color to be transparent. Click the color in the image, or click the color box to select from the current color picker. If you want to view the transparency, click Proof.

3. Click OK. The color is now transparent; however, it may still be displayed until you hide it.

Paint Shop Pro :: Best Image Treatment

Jan 2, 2012

I have 3 images which I am looking for the best treatment.

a) Dark hair: the woman has an dark hair which is almost blended with the background. What to do to bring more definition to hair and to “separate” it from background?
b) Face light: one side of the man face (and body) is with much brightness, blending with his white shirt yet. Is there any way do correct it?
c) Spot of light: in a slice of a landscape there is a spot with much clarity/brightness. I would prefer to bring more blue from the sky then light. On the other hand, maybe there is any way to take benefit of the light.

Paint Shop Pro :: Fit Window To Image?

I have been using PSP since it was free shareware so I'm rather familiar with it. I just installed the PSP X4 14.1.05 When I open an image in the "edit" area and have the move tool chosen the image goes to "Fit image to Window" and both "Fit window to image" and "Fit Image and Window to Screen" are grayed out. I have tried the preferences and all else I can think of but can't get the window to fit to the image as it always has so I can be viewing several images at a time and working with them. I did try reinstalling. This is a Vista machine.

Paint Shop Pro :: Loading Image In X5

Jan 3, 2013

I'm having an issue with loading a photo into PSPx5. When I go to 'Open' and click on a thumbnail in a folder. Some/most times the thumbnail preview loads in a second or two. Then I can open the file. However every now and again I get a very long wait, 20-40 seconds, before the thumbnail loads. All files are approx 90 meg so it's not a file size issue. Just some thumbnails taking forever to load in the small preview window.

Paint Shop Pro :: X3 Copy Into New Image

Mar 21, 2011

New version of PSPPX3U. There are 2 problems which I find most upsetting.

1. I open an image, 256 x 128 in size and create a new image 768 x 128 in size.

I click on the 256 x 128 image to bring it into focus and Ctrl+A to select the whole image, and Ctrl+C to copy the whole image.

Then I bring the new image into focus, then Ctrl+E to place the copied image at the left side, the image covers the 128 area perfectly.

Once the image is placed I Ctrl+G to deselect the image, the image shrinks to leave a 3 pixel uncovered area on the bottom.

2. Let's say there are several images open and I want to close one of them, so I right click on the image name to open the tool menu.

Rather than giving the option to close that particular image, it gives the option to close all images.

But going up to File, I am now given the option to close that particular image.

Which is ars-backwards.

My system specs:
My PSPP3XU version : 13. 2. 1. 20
