Paint Shop Pro 8 - Starts Here - Page 2


Project Information: • Skill level: Basic • CorelR JascR Paint ShopTM ProR 8 • General tips

Image Characteristics:

  • The second section of the New Image dialog box is for setting the image characteristics. You have a choice of Raster or Vector Backgrounds. For this tutorial you can set this to Raster.

  • The next option is for Color Depth. You have five choices based on the number of colors in the image. This is different from the number of pixels. You can have 300 pixels that are all black and white. In that case the number of colors in the image would be 2. You could also have an image with 300 pixels that are black, pink, red, green, brown, and orange. In that case the number of colors would be 6. Most of the time, you will be working with images that have 16 Million Colors (24 Bit). So set the Color Depth to 16 Million from the drop-down list. You will reduce the number of colors later.

  • Next you need to decide if you want to start with a transparent background or a colored background. If you want the background to be transparent, place a check mark in the small box next to Transparent. You will see that the larger box next to Color has been grayed out. However, if you want a colored background, uncheck the smaller box (Transparent) and the larger box (Color) will no longer be grayed out. The color in this larger box will be the color of the background for your new image. We will talk about how to pick colors later. For now just use the color that is in the box and click OK.

You should now have a new Image Window on the workspace and the controls for the program are no longer grayed out. We will begin to experiment with the controls in the next lesson. But now you will save this new image to your images folder. If you have not already created a folder for storing your images, do this now. Need help?

Save the image:

To save the image, click File > Save As to open the Save As dialog box. (Figure 2) Change the name of this image from ImageX.pspimage to LessonOne and keep the Save As Type set to Paint Shop Pro Image. Click Save. That's all for this lesson. You can close the Paint Shop Pro program.
