Paint Shop Pro, PSP, Paintshop Pro, Paintshoppro
You are encouraged to post creations in this thread in which PaintShop Pro was used. Be sure to post steps you took to achieve your results, so others can learn from your experiences.
...or use this thread to post PSP-related questions.
While it's a fact there are more Photoshop users than PSP users in the world, there's no questioning the results PSP users get. I've seen some amazing stuff come out of that program.
Had my computer not crashed a few months ago and wiped PSP (along with a bunch of other programs I've yet to reinstall), I'd post an example myself.
Thanks to new member Joy CA for her suggestion to give PSP a little more exposure. I'm looking to seeing many PSP creations in the future.

I hope this helps.

Most of the links that pops up is links about how to use the smudge tool
So i am still hoping that someone can help me! :-)
With love from Mette
