Tutorial #2 – Singin’ in the Rain (PSP 8)

From to
in Paint Shop Pro 8 (translatable)


1. My base is from capthat Crop and sharpen using unsharp mask, settings: radius, 1.00; strength, 75; clipping 7 (or whatever combination works better for your base.) 2. Add this gradient (it comes with PSP I’m fairly sure) at Lighten, 60% 3. Duplicate your background and drag it to the top, set to Screen, 100% 4. Add this texture by colorfilter , Screen 100% 5. Also by colorfilter, also Screen 100% 6. Duplicate your background again, drag to top, Soft Light 100% 7. Add this tiny text brush by me, or create tiny text of your own (I usually use Courier New, size 1, with a high kerning) in a color picked with the dropper from the icon. The “>>>” symbols above were written in Courier New, size 4, with a kerning around 600. And that’s it! The great thing about this icon is you can change the color of it using the colorize feature or by adding a color balance adjustment layer… or a whole variety of ways actually… so you can make it whatever color you wish to match your layout du jour. For example:

For best quality results, save a .png

Feel free to adjust the different opacities, layer settings, brushes, textures… be creative! Comments are greatly appreciated. :)

I have no idea, those options have never come up for me before. :-/ I usually save as a .png because they are a higher quality. But nothing ever comes up for me except a message saying this will flatten the image, so I really don't know how to help you, sorry.
