Paint Shop Pro
« on: December 14, 2004, 03:10:39 am »
Hi there.

I may going over to the dark side (:O) and I may start to use my copy of Paint Shop Pro when I get it back from California.

My problem is, is that as far as graphics programmes go, I am an illiterate.  I've grown so used to hand-colouring, that all I can do pretty much is scan an image and clean the background.

So I just wanted to know, has anyone got any tutorials or guides they can give me with making a good colouring?  Like stuff about these layers and things.

If you want to help, I'll be most grateful, but the only downfall is is that you'll have to remember that I don't have a clue AT ALL.  I don't know where I'd find layers or paintbrushes or anything.  I also would like to know about how to make a good scan so it's easy to colour, too.

Any information would be awesome and most appreciated, so thank you anyone who's willing to help me get to grips with the scary world of computer colouring '<img'>

Google's your friend '<img'>

I found this one, looks pretty good: http://www.sumrallworks.com/freebie....k2g.htm

But the best way to learn is to practise and practise some more. Just like a pencil, a mouse/pen/tablet is an acquired tool that not everyone can wield successfully. Some folks do 1/2 and 1/2 (like me) '<img'>

Thanks '<img'>  I'm still nervous about trying computer colouring, which seems absurd, I know, but having a boost in the right direction helps.

Way to go, doing stuff in PSP is much better than that smelly Photoshop! Which PSp are you using? Because PSP 8 and 9 are very different from the other versions.

Photoshop.  Smelly.  Pfft.

Anyways, I just loaded PSP 9 on my comp, but I haven't used it yet.  I don't use PSP that often because I don't find it very user friendly, but If I find anything out I'll let you know.

Well, I used PSP 7 for a while (at least 2 years), so I might be of some use. First tip: use the pen tool on bezier curve for your lineart! A lot of really great artists I've seen use that for their lineart, then switch to something else to color (so do I lately. ^^; I love my painter).

P.S.: If you have 8, I pity your soul.
