Paint Shop Pro comes with some awesome preset shapes:
hearts, arrows, stars, etc. You can
also create your own vector shapes and save them as presets, to use again and
again. This will allow you to change the
stroke, color, size, and pattern of any vector shape.
In this tutorial we will be creating a simple vector star
using the pen tool.
Open a 2400x2400ppi image
Choose a solid color fill and no stroke color
Choose the pen tool from your toolbar
Create any custom shape you would like (in this
example I created a simple abstract star)
Choose File>Export>Shape (or Preset Shape)
Enter a file name: this will be whatever you
want to call your shape
Now your shape will be part of the drop down menu when you
want to use custom shapes. You can use
it with whatever fills, stroke, size and pattern you choose.
