Danny, I find the usefulness limited (only for me), because, I don't have time to go through all of the posts. I use PSP8 and there is no way to tell, without looking at all posts, if there is anything pertaining to PSP8.

I enjoy looking at all the wonderful art work, but, it is frustrating not to be able to use the information. I feel the same way about the Retouching Forum, it has some really wonderful effects. However, not having PS and not knowing what to use 'instead', I can't make the transition.

Are there enough PSP users on this forum, to, warrant a PSP category ?

Joy

First of all, Welcome! As one born and raised in SoCal myself (Culver City), I can say it's especially nice to have a fellow Californian join us.

RE: PSP-specific topics, techniques, etc.
As you have already discovered, most of threads posted and methods described in this and the other forums at RetouchPRO are Photoshop centric. That's sure not a knock on PaintShop Pro, which is a feature rich and, compared to Photoshop, very reasonably priced piece of software. (I have PSP 7 myself, but did not reinstall it after a hard drive crash last Fall.)

At the moment I believe one of our members who posts images fairly often (jch71566 [aka: Jeff]), uses PSP for some of his photo-art creations, so you might search on his posts. He's usually pretty good about leaving enough useful breadcrumbs to follow.

I just did three site searches using keywords "psp", "paintshop pro" and "paintshoppro" and got quite a few hits, so that might make your efforts a little easier. Click on "Search" in the gray bar at the top (choose advanced search) or just click HERE.

It sure can't hurt to start a PSP-only thread in the photo-art forum and see what happens (I'll do that in a couple minutes). Could be there are some lurkers out there itching for such an opportunity and that's all it will take for them to jump into the pool.

Thanks for waving the white flag. I hope it stirs some interest.

Hi Danny, I live in Long Beach (born and raised here).

Thank you, for the informative answer. I am looking forward to a PSP thread in the Photo art forum. I hope all PSPer's will jump on. I am looking forward to learning new effects. I also have a few painterly methods I could share.

Joy

I find this sight fasinating. I know little or perhaps more accurately nothing about photo art as represented here. Over the years my interests have mostly been oriented towards photos in a jounalistic sense as recording something I saw. If you came to our house you would find a great percentage of the art we have collected is photo-realistic even in paintings.

I stumbled onto this forum and to this area of it and have watched with fasination for months now. I have even thrown a couple of my shots in to see what other folks would do with them.

I must say, what was done would never have been dreamed of by me even if I had the knowlege of the how. I say that in a delighted way. I didn't vote above 'cause I don't know what I think but I do know I keep coming back here like a penniless kid to to the candy counter.

Not sure exactly where I fall on the "newbie" curve, as I have been hacking away at PS6 for a couple years now. But I recently decided to get serious and learn to take full advantage of the program, and this forum has been a great place to start! I mostly lurk for now, but check in every day to see what's happening with you talented folks! Thanks!

newbie or not newbie

My mother says I was born with a camera in my hands. BIG LAUGH. Just because I'm nearly totally lacking in the draw it with your hands category, photos have been a creative way of expressing myself. However, it is to the artsy side I'm really drawn. I've been playing around for a couple of months in the art forum. I have learned a lot. I am still learning a lot. I will continue learning a lot. It is great to have this forum and this site where those of us with the same photo/graphic bug can hang out together.

Using this definition from the Merriam-Webster Online Dictionary...
Quote:
Decorative or illustrative elements in printed matter. Synonyms ART, SKILL, CUNNING, ARTIFICE, CRAFT mean the faculty of executing well what one has devised. ART implies a personal, unanalyzable creative power <the art of choosing the right word>. SKILL stresses technical knowledge and proficiency <the skill of a glassblower>. CUNNING suggests ingenuity and subtlety in devising, inventing, or executing <a mystery plotted with great cunning>. ARTIFICE suggests technical skill especially in imitating things in nature <believed realism in film could be achieved only by artifice>. CRAFT may imply expertness in workmanship <the craft of a master goldsmith>.
...I would say manipulation of any kind that one applies to a photo is an artistic endeavor. But the debate of whether the result is "art or not" belongs in a separate thread, so I will leave it at that.

I'm glad you are learning here at RetouchPRO. Thanks for posting your comments.

~Danny~
