    3. If you did a fresh install & not an install over PP2 again, that would get rid of corrupted files. I use to run with Vista Pro & PP2 Ultimate worked. But it was slow with only 1 GIG of memory. I increased my memory & things were fast again. But you said it worked before.. Well before what? Something changed. That is why I suspect too many programs are running at the same time. If you know how to use Windows Task Manager you can visually see what is being used on your computer. --- On Mon, 9/12/11, Barbara Lewis <lewisroots@comcast.net> wrote: From: Barbara Lewis <lewisroots@comcast.net> Subject: Re: [PAINT-SHOP-PRO] Problem with File/Open To: paint-shop-pro@rootsweb.com Date: Monday, September 12, 2011, 2:48 PM Steve, I'm dealing with PPP Photo x2 2008.... it can't be the first 2 things....actually it's not just the File/open....the select arrow just flickers for several minutes before the flickering stops and lets me select something.... ----- Original Message ----- From: "Steven" <magi48@yahoo.com> To: <paint-shop-pro@rootsweb.com> Sent: Monday, September 12, 2011 3:10 PM Subject: Re: [PAINT-SHOP-PRO] Problem with File/Open It could be that your low on memory to process faster.

    3. thank you Woody...after erasing I saved it as a PNG file, because a video on youtube told me to do that. OK, I'll resave it....then can I go back and just change that white to another color> Yes, I do cloning all the time. I haven't done what you have described, however. I wish I could do all those things. How does a person learn to do those things? I'm not a good one to read directions and then know what to do. But I use my PPPro all the time.

    3. Not to worry. I've been using PSP 7, 8, and now X for years, and still don't use "layers". Still, I've managed to get by pretty well. I really ought to learn about layers, but I've never really had to. Like they said, erasing and seeing the checkerboard just means the erased area is transparent. When you save the picture as a JPG, the transparent area becomes white. After you've saved it, you can reopen file and work on it some more. Have you tried cloning? You can also clone from one picture to another picture. My wife didn't like a hat she had on at Yellowstone, so I found another picture of her from the same vacation without a hat, resized the picture so the head size would be right, and then cloned her head from the other picture. I've also cloned myself into vacation pictures so that I am standing next to my wife. I just "paint" myself in. If I mess up a stroke, I undo it.

    3. the checkered background should actually just be the background of the window. it shows that that part is transparent (erased). if you select that layer, and chose to hide it, you'll see the whole image become checkered. in other words its not really checkered, its just a filler pattern that is part of the program On Thu, Apr 21, 2011 at 9:20 PM, Barbara Lewis <lewisroots@comcast.net>wrote: > I wanted to erase all the background of a figure, which I did with an erase > tool and ended up with the checkered background.

    2. Allyssa Edwards
    3. does it only do it on super large images, or do it on small ones as well? do you have a slower computer? when i open very large images, my program freezes up for a while, though not the whole computer, since my computer is barely hanging on and high memory hog programs kill me. running PSP x2 is nearly impossible at this point, i have to run old psp7 for basic stuff, and only use X2 for intensive projects. have you tried contacting Corel for advice? if all else fails, just try to reinstall it, see if that works.

    2. Hi Donna. I use v. 9, but think this works in all versions. Choose the text tool and set your color choice in the Materials Pallette. Type your words in the text box and it will show up on the photo as another layer. If you want to change the color again, highlight the words in the text box and reset your colors in the Materials Pallette.

    3. Donna, Open your picture. Select the Text Tool. Go over to the Materials palette and select your color. Return to picture with the Text Tool and press your mouse button. After the dialog box opens..type away. If you want to change the color of your text while typing, highlight the text with your mouse and return to the Materials for another color. --- On Tue, 12/16/08, Donna <autrey@c-zone.net> wrote: From: Donna <autrey@c-zone.net> Subject: [PAINT-SHOP-PRO] Color of Text To: PAINT-SHOP-PRO-L@rootsweb.com Date: Tuesday, December 16, 2008, 4:48 PM Can someone please tell me how do you change the color of the Text when applying it to a photo.

    3. I was going to tell you how, but darned if I can change the text colors now! I guess that's why lately I just take the picture over to MS Image Composer (software that comes with FrontPage) and do my text entry there. That MS Image Composer is what Cranky Phil needs to merge his two sections of a magazine photo into one. That sofware is perfect and super easy for that.

    1. Re: [PAINT-SHOP-PRO] How do I do this in PSP
    2. Gary Templeman
    3. Last year I tried to suggest using layers for a project you were working on and you arrogantly replied that you didn't need any stinkin' layers, and proclaimed your 30 years of experience. When I questioned how you could have worked in photo manipulation that long and hadn't learned about layers you replied with the message below. "Yeh , I don`t understand what a layer is !!!, If you got a problem wth that I got two words for you Which start with F and Y , Phil" This time when I made a straightforward query why you couldn't treat this new problem the same way that you knew how to do last year, you accused me of trying to rattle your cage and "jump all over you". Now, maybe it is true that you are an old man with diminishing memory skills (although how you expected us to magically figure that out, I don't know) but that is not an excuse for your behavior. So, sorry Phil, you are on your own regarding help from me. Along with the many suggested online tutorials that have been posted in the past, your local library should have some good books on using layers and other aspects of PSP. The reason we can't just "give you want you ask" is that complex photo manipulation is not easy to "cookbook" as each image is different. Getting the proper result often does not lend itself to the drips and drabs of information that can be contained in email messages, especially without having the images posted so we could see exactly what needs to be accomplished. We can't tell you to make a particular kind of layer, what to set the opacity to, how to mask it and so on. The best that can be done on a list like this is to point you in the right direction, but in the end you have to learn the tools and then play around and find the final solution. Might I humbly suggest you discipline yourself to either go through some online tutorials, check out some training books, or perhaps take a class at the local community college. Even if it is for Photoshop and not PSP, many of the tools will be similar and the general principles will still apply. Oh, and don't bother to send another angry reply, as you are now in my blocked sender's list and I won't see it.
