In this project you will learn how to use the Geometric-Perspective Effect and the Text Tool in Paint ShopTM ProR 8. We will create an Easter egg greeting card. First we will use the Geometric-Perspective Effect to reshape a circular image into an egg shaped image. Then we will use the Text Tool to add your own Easter greeting. After you have made your greeting card, we will save the image in a format that you can email to family and friends.
Step 1. Download the project image. Click on the link to download the image we will use for this project. When the image appears, RIGHT click on the circle, choose "Save Picture As" from the pop-up menu and save the image to your computer.
If this is your first time using Paint Shop Pro, click on the General Tips and Diagram links above. You may want to print out these pages.
Step 2. Open the downloaded image into Paint Shop Pro. Go to the Menu bar and click File > Open to open the image into the workspace. As you can see it is a circle on a solid white background.
Step 3. Reshape the circle. We will use the Geometric-Perspective Effect to reshape the circle into an egg shape. Go to the Menu bar again and click Effects > Geometric Effects > Perspective-Vertical. The Perspective-Vertical dialog box will open. Set the following values in this dialog box.
Step 4. Flip the egg. The egg is upside down. Let's flip the image. Go to the Menu bar and click Image > Flip.
