I had read somewhere that PSP9 could use .abr brushes. I have never been able to import .abr brushes (or covert them to .jbr) Does anyone have any advice? ((Note: I do not have a problem importing/using/deleting brushes that are in .jbr))

When I download a font, I unzip it & put it in my fonts folder & everything works fine, but then for some reason, it's not on my PSP font folder, can anyone tell me why?
28th-Jun-2007 02:12 am - Uploading brushes
Harry P: Snape Map (princessbloomy)
I've been uploading loads of brushes to PSP9 over the last couple of days. I've also been sorting them into the various folders in "My PSP" like "Masks", "Brushes", "Textures". I then enable the folder and subfolders. The items are showing up when I do the pulldown to find them. So I'm not having trouble with that part. The problem is now PSP9 is almost refusing to work. It takes forever to start and then load the brushes. And if I want to add another brush, PSP has a fit and takes almost 3 minutes to load to create a brush tip and I can only do about three of them before having to shut the whole thing off.
Here's pretty much how it goes:

Open > Export Brush > Custom Brush > Loading Cache (which takes over 5 minutes) > checking for new items (takes over 3 minutes) > checking for new items (Does this again. This takes over 5 minutes). Then PSP goes white screen and it saves the cache as it very slowly counts up to 100%. It continues to crank away again for over 5 minutes. It also goes white screen for many minutes each time I go to load the next brush.

Is there some sort of limit to how many brushes PSP will accept?

Can someone please help me fix this? I'm going crazy!

Me → What the Cock Indeed...
Ok, I have two questions. Does anyone have a good tutorial on colorizing a black & white image? I think that's what it's called. By colorizing, I mean where certain parts of the image are in color, but the majority of it is in black & white.

Question 2. My AS3 keeps freezing each time I try to animate ANYTHING. Has it done this to anyone else? Any suggestions on what to do or how to fix it?

Hi, I hope this isn't considered OT. Um, I have PSP9, but I had it loaded on a laptop that, at the end of last year, completely crashed. When I got home from school this summer I could only find the box, but not the disc, the instruction book, or anything. I was wondering--where exactly is the registration code to be found? I sort of want to know what I should be looking for.

Hi guys, major question. I'm using PSP9 and I'm wondering how to keep my transparent background transparent?! I save it with the transparent background but it just saves to white! Can someone help me?

Ok, this is my first time trying to explain to other people how to do anything with this. It drove me crazy trying to learn this (I even looked on here) and could never figure it out. I figured now that I some what (or at least think) I know what i'm doing that I would help you guys out now.

Hope I do it rightCollapse )

5th-Jun-2007 08:33 am - Blending Photos in PSP9
Whitney Houston
I know this in the memories, but I still need some major help. I'm still have real trouble with blending photos for banners/wallpapers. Does anyone here know of an easy way to blend photos in banners/wallpapers or at least another way to do it? The only way I know how to blend is from the eraser tool, some of my banners don't look decent enough some do it's kinda weird. Maybe I need to work with layers or something I don't know. But the eraser is okay, but it's not doing a very good job or maybe it's just me. Can anyone help me out? I'd really apperciate it.

Whitney Houston
Okay I have a question for anyone whose great with Animation shop 3 (which is what I have), anyway does anyone know how you make those tv show video animation icons (I guess that's what they're called). I just tried to make one and I can't get it to where it looks desent. Here's an example below of what I'm talking about:


Okay I know that you have get a video clip and then take screencaps, then layer them somehow (I think in order (could someone please exactly how you're supposed to layer them?) then it should work, but mine I just made didn't turn out that great at all I might be doing something wrong. If someone could please tell me how exactly to do this type of icon I'd really apperciate it. I've been wanting to learn how to make one for a while now.

Does anyone know how to upload brushes in psp9?

I have psp9 for Windows XP and can't seem to figure it out.

I tried it out before and a message popped up saying something about the brush being too updated or something funny.


Hi all,
I've been digging around but so far I haven't come up with anything. I'm wondering if anyone knows of a tut to make the monochrome light textures by

colorfilter , which can be seen here and here. I'd like to make some larger ones for banners and wallpapers and such.

I'm using PS7 and PSP9.

I've left a comment asking her, but it seems she's been busy as neither her site nor LJ have been updated recently. Any help is appreciated! :)

TV: spongebob - squidward?
Ok, I make scripts in PSP 9 from my colorings/tuts, and i'm having a problem with some of them. After the script is done, the fill layers are blank. they didn't fill with a color at all. I have to go to the text script editor and find out what colors were filled in. i'm wondering why the layers aren't being filled. is there another way to fill layer except clicking on them? i'm figuring it has something to do with that. :(

Please help. thanks.

ETA: some scripts don't fill, some do.
ETA2: i have to re-do the scripts that don't work and type the hex code in the layer name so i know which color to fill it with if it happens again. :( pain in the *BLEEP*

Hi folks!

I came across this really awesome looking signature and I'm dying to know if there's anyway it can be created in PSP. I have a feeling she used Photoshop, and since that program and I don't mix well, if there's any way of achieving this in PSP, please let me know.

Thanks so much! :)

I've had this question for seriously like two years but I thought I figured it out, however I don't think I'm doing it right. I need help learning how to use transparent PNGs in PSP9.
See, usually I'd go to Image >> Palette >> Set Palette Transparency, and once I did that I'd also view the transparency but I'm pretty sure I'm not doing it right. For instance, let's say I have a PNG that's been extracted, and the colour I want to set transparent is black. Well, all the black in the image turns transparent too (as to be expected), but there's GOT to be a more efficient way to use PNGs. Also, the edges of the image are very geometrical or just poor-quality, and I just can't seem to believe that this is the extent of technology PNG-wise; surely they are meant to look better! Am I already doing it right, or is there some other way to do this?
Thanks in advance to anyone who offers assistance! :)
3rd-Apr-2007 11:43 pm - Help erasing the background?
Howdy y'all,

Something I've never been very good at is erasing a background from a picture. I guess what I'm trying to do is a blend, and I've looked at this tutorial for some help. My problem is that my image isn't like the snake - the subject being easily discernable from the background - and I'm hoping for some tips on how to do a better job erasing the background. I'm including the image under the cut so it's more clear what I'm talking about:

Thanks for any pointers! :)

I was wondering if someone could help me. I know how to make icons, but when I have a GIF Icon and I want to put a name on it sideways or something and I want it to be seen on each frame-how do I do that. I use animation shop 3 for my animation.

31st-Mar-2007 07:12 pm - Moving layers
Hi, I have a quick question...this has happened to me before. Sometimes when I try to move a layer, it automatically selects and moves another layer, even though it's not the layer I selected. =/ Make sense? They're both raster layers, and they're not locked.
26th-Mar-2007 06:21 am - Organizing brushes
I've got some brushes to add, both actual brushes and some from image packs. I have no problems adding them but I was wondering if there is a way to separate them in different categories, just like the ones that are already there (Artistic, stamps, etc). Could anyone shed some light? Thanks!

Hey Everyone,

I was wondering if someone could help me. I'm using Paintshop pro9 and I've been trying to find the easiest way for blending images together, well I found the eraser way not too bad, but I'm still having trouble with the blending part in ways I've gotten the hang of it and others I haven't so I'm wondering if someone could make me a tutorial for blending images with the eraser? I'd really apperciate the help. I'm still kinda of a beginer with PSP and I'd like to learn the easiest way to blend. Thanks docwarnerfan.

PS: Sorry if this question has been asked before, but I looked through the memories and didn't see anything on this, but if there is I missed it and I'm sorry.
