So you've joined Club Digital, and don't know how
to use those great Software Specific or Stamps png files?
There are also some beautiful Photoshop Brushes
in the store and freebie gallery - and for a long time I was at
a loss for what I could do with them in Paint Shop Pro.
Here's what you want to to with them. For a brush,
Paint Shop Pro requires a file size of no more than 500 pixels.
So open your image in Paint Shop Pro. This is a flower stamp in
Victorian Extras by Suzanne Walker.
Resize your image to no more than 500 pixels wide
and 500 pixels high. Leave the "lock aspect ratio" box
checked and resize the largest side to 500.
Now you'll want to File, Export, Custom Brush. Name
it when that box opens up. I generally use the creator's name as
part of the file name to keep track of which I've made myself and
which are others' work. The next time you browse your brushes it
will be a choice!
For larger files, such as texture overlays and borders
that are twelve inches wide, export as Frame instead. Name your
frame. Then to retrieve it, you'll use Image, Picture Frame, to
find and select that one. It's added as a new layer - so you can
then use blending techniques if you like.
