Anniversary Card With Paint Shop Pro 7 - Page 2


Step 2. Add some noice.

No, I'm not talking about lots of sound. I'm talking about the Paint Shop Pro's Noise effect (small colored dots). Go to the Menu Bar and click Effects > Noise > Add. This will open the Add Noise dialog box. Set the following values in the dialog box and click OK. (See Figure 2)

Noise: 100

Step 3. Swirl the noise.

Now we will use one of the Eye Candy plug-in filters which are included in the program. This filter effect will stir up those small colored dots into a nice pattern. Click Effects > Plug-in Filters > Eye Candy 3.1 > Swirl and the Swirl dialog box will open. If the circle next to Auto-Preview is empty, click on the circle to activate the preview window. Set the following values in the dialog box. (See Figure 3) You can use the slider bar or type in the numbers. These numbers are just a suggestion. Feel free to experiment with other settings. The preview window in the dialog box will reflect the different settings. When you are happy with the effect, click on the check mark at the upper right corner. Wait a few seconds for the computer to complete the process.

To get a correct idea of the effect, zoom back to a normal view. Click View > Normal View (1:1).



Step 4. Draw the heart.

Preset Shapes Tool
We will draw the heart in the center of the card, but first we need to zoom out again. Click View > Zoom Out By 1. Now we will use the Preset Shapes tool to draw the heart. Click on the icon for the Preset Shapes tool and set the following values in the Tool Options palette. (See Figure 4)

Style type: Heart 1
Retain style: Checked
Create as vector: Checked

Now place your mouse pointer at the upper left section of the image. Hold down the mouse button and drag downward and to the right. When you release the mouse button, you will see a black heart surrounded by small squares. Use the small squares at the corners to resize the heart. Use the small square at the center to position the heart in the middle of the card. (See Figure 5)


Figure 5.

Now go to the Menu Bar and click Selections > From Vector Object. Then click Edit > Cut. You should now have dashes indicating the outline of the heart and the black heart should have disappeared. (See Figure 6) Finally, click Layers > Merge > Merge All Flatten.
