  • is there a way?

    Working in Paint Shop Pro, as I am, I am wondering if the same thing doesn't happen in other paint software. When I draw a line, it ALWAYS treats it as a selection, and I have to remove the selection box to move on to the next line. Is there a way to simply draw a point to point line without it being a selection?

    Most editors have something called the path tool. Pretty sure PSP has such a tool as well. If so, you create you two point path, then stroke the path.

      I was working on an image to print on a t-shirt for a friend. It was a picture of her two grandchildren. Oval/round wouldn't work, but square corners didn't do it either. do you make a selection with rounded corners.

      Selection Tool
      by T Paul
      You can use the selection tool to make copies of your selection quickly and easily. My standard practice for copying a selection is to select it then copy (Ctrl+C), paste (Ctrl+V). However, I just learned a neat little trick today.
