Paint Shop Pro :: Creating Text On X5?

Mar 22, 2013

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.

Paint Shop Pro :: Creating Tryptich With X5?

Nov 30, 2013

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.

Paint Shop Pro :: Creating CDs / DVDs

Aug 17, 2011

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?

Paint Shop Pro :: Creating Video From Still Images

Jun 30, 2013

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.

Paint Shop Pro :: X3 - Creating A Smooth Line

Dec 6, 2013

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?

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 :: Space Added To End Of Text / Text Off-center?

May 8, 2011

I do a lot of CD designs, and often I have my text centered on the front covers. When I put the text centered, however, PSP is added an extra space to the end of text, so when I center it on the canvas the text is actually off-center to the left. When I go into edit the text, there is no space on the right of the words to delete.

With the text selected this is how it looks: The right edge of the frame should be flush with the right edge of the last 'T'.

Paint Shop Pro :: Make X3 Text Tool Remember Text?

Mar 22, 2012

Way back when I originally bought PSP X3, I used it for a short while then went back to X2. Mostly because the X3 text tool would not remember text I had used. Now I've recovered from a hard-drive death and want to move forward and use my X3.

How can I make the X3 text tool remember text?

Paint Shop Pro :: Watermark In Text

May 7, 2013

I am trying to find a way to watermark my photos using text for uploading to the net to try and prevent image theft. Canon Zoom Browser adds text but only 1 pic at a time.

I have searched this forum without success and searched the internet without success except for Alamoon which does one pic at a time ok but to do in batches requires you upgrade at a cost of about half the price of upgrading to PSP x5.

I read a comment by a subscriber here dated 2010 referring to PSP x3 but it said that after going to Image->Watermarking->Visible Watermark, you have to load a "pre-made image ..." Where do you get this pre-made image from ? Remember, I only want to add a couple of words of text. Surely this is not beyond the capabilities of Corel? Alamoon does it very easily. It doesn't take numerous windows and dozens of clicks with multiple layers to negotiate etc.

Paint Shop Pro :: X3 And X4 Cannot Use ANY Text Other Than Vector?

Dec 11, 2011

have used Paint Shop Pro X3 for as long as it has been around and could always change text(select the text tool)from Vector to floating before actually typing the text. Now after not making any changes to psp pro x3 I it sticks on vector all the time. PSP PRO X4 Does the exact same as well. It defaults to vector and will not let me change to floating.

Paint Shop Pro :: Adding Text In X3

Jul 13, 2011

When I was using PSP X I was able to add text to a template document simply by pressing the 'A' text tool, positioning the cursor, left clicking to open the text entry box and then typing (usually just the date), this I can't do in PSP X3 as the ' highlighted input box' hovers over a saved documents' previous input - (usually a month) and won't open or move without dragging the month with it. The cursor offers spurious flashes before leaving me with a flashing horizontal bar unable to proceed. The problem still occurs regardless of which previously saved and archived document I try to make adjustments to.

I had this problem too 12 months ago with a trial version which I had expected was a download fault but I think not. The routine still works fine on PSP X

Paint Shop Pro :: Editing Text In Pro X3

Mar 11, 2012

I am running Windows7 64 bit and although I am fairly OK with most things in X3, there is one very simple thing that is baffling me! How do I edit existing text?

For example:

I create a plain white background.
Click on the "Text" button and add some text.
Click the green "Apply changes" and then do something else e.g add some graphics etc.

How can I then edit the text that was created (Correct a spelling mistake, change font size colour etc).

Paint Shop Pro :: Vector Text In Script?

Feb 6, 2012

(PaintShop Pro v8.10)

I have a single vector text instance in my (PSP file) image. It says "cat". I want to make multiple copies of the image but with the word "cat" localized into different languages. Rather than editing the vector text via the "Text Entry" dialog box I was hoping to be able to do this with a script. The the idea is that I would have a copy of the script for each language, change the relevant text as required and run the script. E.g. For French, I would edit the script changing "cat" to "chat" and then run the script against the French image.

So first I wanted to identify the part of the script that I would need to edit. To do this I created a script as follows: I started the script recorder, change the text "cat" to "dog" in the Text Entry dialog box, saved the script, opened it in a text editor and searched for the text "dog". However, the word "dog" does not appear anywhere in the script. I don't understand this. Where is the vector text "dog" being stored? If I run the script against a different image that also has a single instance of vector text, it changes the text to "dog", so the script is working correctly.

Paint Shop Pro :: Text Position And Matrix?

May 7, 2012

This part is logical. Add text to a vector layer and write a script to show the text and the position. From what I can tell, the Characters key is the text and the Start key is the (X,Y) position.

So far no problem, click the text 1 pixel right and the Start[0] increases by 1. Same with 1 pixel down and Start[1] increases by 1.

Now for the crunch... Rotate the text and Start does not change (no matter how much you move the text).

By trail and error, I find that the Matrix key changes.

Now, Matrix has 9 values and from what I can tell Matrix[0], Matrix[1], Matrix[3] and Matrix[4] somehow relate to angle. Probably sin and cos of the angle from the x- and y- axis respectively.

Matrix [2] and Matrix[5] do increase linearly with shifts in x and y. How does this relate to the actual position of the text

You can see a more detailed description of the problem and my sample script here. [URL]

Paint Shop Pro :: Put Text Inside Balloon?

Sep 14, 2011

I am using Paint Shop Pro X - the last decent version that Corel made.

I haven't done anything artistic in Paint Shop Pro in a couple of years.

I am trying to put text in a balloon, on a photograph, to show what someone is saying.

Every single thing I try arranges the text along the outside of the balloon.

All three of my books on Paint Shop Pro X and Paint Shop Pro 9 (which is very similar), the help files, and everything I can find online, specifically discuss only how to put text along the outside of a shape, or along a curved line -even though the discussion topic and associated photos often clearly show cartoon text inside balloons in the normal manner.

One discussion does show specifically how to do it; unfortunately they are written for Paint Shop Pro 5 or something, and I don't get any such dialogue box to open when I click on either A thingy on either tool bar.

Specifically how DO I put text inside a balloon in the normal manner? By normal manner, I mean, like in this post.
