Anniversary Card With Paint Shop Pro 7

Project Information: Skill level: Basic CorelR JascR Paint ShopTM ProR 7 General tips Inkjet Printer Blank Greeting Card and Envelope (8.5 x 5.5 inches folded, glossy)

In this project you will make a simple but elegant anniversary card using the Jasc's Paint Shop Pro 7 graphics software. The purpose of this project, besides creating the card, is to introduce you to several of the special effects features in Paint Shop Pro. When finished, you can print the image onto any blank greeting card.

Step one. Open a new Image Window.

Open the Paint Shop Pro program. Go to the Menu Bar and click on File > New. When the New Image dialog box opens, set the following values and click OK. (See Figure 1) A new Image Window will open onto your workspace.

Note: If you will be sending this card over the Internet instead of printing it, set the Resolution to 72. Set the Resolution to 200 if you will be printing the card.

Width: 8.5 inches
Height: 5.5 inches
Resolution: 200 ppi
Background color: White
Image type: 16.7 m color (24 bit)

Now that you have an 8.5 x 5.5 Image Window on your workspace, you are probably saying to yourself that it looks much larger than it should. That's because you have set the resolution to 200. You did that so the image will look better when you print your card. But it does appear much larger on your computer screen. To get a more accurate view, let's zoom out. On the Menu Bar click View > Zoom Out By 1.
