    1. Re: [PAINT-SHOP-PRO] How do I do this in PSP
    2. Marvin `Woody` Woodworth
    3. Hi Crabby Phil, Actually, that's a good question. I've been doing great (I think) on PSP v5. through v8.1 for about 10 years, and never got around to learning what a "layer" was. Oh I had a general idea, but never worked with a "layer" that I was aware of. Ironcically, when I went just now to PSP's Help section and looked up "layer", there was a lot of "how-tos" but no definition. So -- I Googled. And what I found was a non-PSP web site that tells what a layer is -- and using PSP as demo. Scroll down just a little ways on the following web page and there is the definition. See: http://leaves.cotarr.com/objecthowto/index.html So, Crabby Phil, there you have it. I tried merging a picture in PSP before, and succeeded, but the process is so drawn out in comparison to what is involved in Microsoft Image Composer (comes with Frontpage) that I never tried merging with PSP again.

    3. Hi Phil, This same situation you have just experienced has occurred repeatedly on the Gen-Newbie list, when it comes to your posts. Perhaps you should consider a different approach to requesting assistance, since it seems none who offer it for you, offering their most valuable commodity, their time, seems to ever be suitable. I know my time is valuable, and as such, I withdraw from providing assistance with any further inquiries you might have, and provide it instead to those who treat me, the list, and its members, with the respect and courtesy that they deserve. I offer this one final bit of assistance that can help you answer any and all questions you may have on any subject going forward: http://www.google.com Use it in good health.

    3. Hi Phil, With no prior knowledge on the subject, it would a good idea to read either a book on how to use PSP, or do some research online on how to use it. Try going to Google and search for: "How-to use Paint Shop Pro" The information you will need to learn in order to do what you want will require at least a working familiarity with the product, which you will only be able to gain from experience with the program. -David Reed Bangor, Penobscot, Maine ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- --------------------------------- Once you've seen one shopping center, you've seen a mall... -----Original Message----- From: [email protected] [mailto:[email protected]] On Behalf Of Phillipp Steffon Sent: Saturday, December 06, 2008 3:24 PM To: [email protected]; [email protected] Subject: Re: [PAINT-SHOP-PRO] How do I do this in PSP Hello , Thank you all for the replies , Now tell me : How to I get both images open at the same time and have them side by side on the Moniter Screen ????? , As I said HELP say NOTHING ABOUT THIS !!, Phil ----- Original Message ----- From: "Kathi Jones-Hudson" <[email protected]> To: <[email protected]> Sent: Saturday, December 06, 2008 9:59 AM Subject: Re: [PAINT-SHOP-PRO] How do I do this in PSP > Phil: > > Since you haven't scanned yet can I suggest that you scan both images in > very high resolution, like 600dpi?

    3. Phil: Since you haven't scanned yet can I suggest that you scan both images in very high resolution, like 600dpi? I think if you plan on hanging this on a wall hi-res will give you a better image. I'd also put a blank sheet of white paper overtop of the magazine page while scanning, it might help prevent a bit of bleed-thru from the reverse page. I found this tutorial for you and while it's not precisely what you're looking for it does describe how to combine multiple images into one: http://www.pspug.org/tutorial/html/tutphoto/funwlayers.htm Lots more tutorials at http://www.pspug.org/ The Paint Shop Pro Users Group. I think you'll need to scan both images, then create a blank new image that is double the width, so if the scanned images are 8-1/2x11 the new image should be at least 17x11 or higher if you plan to put some sort of border around it. Then you'll need to have each image open and drag them into a new layer (or copy/paste into new layer). Then use a tool like smudge to get the line in between the two layers fuzzy or even erase it, manipulate the two images around the layers so they look good to you. You could pick and choose what parts of each page to bring into your image by selecting what to paste into the layers. Lots of playing around to get the result you want. Flatten/merge the layers when you're happy with what you've got and if you need to, resize to the size you want to hang on the wall and save.

    2. Gary Templeman
    3. It is really hard to help when the information you provide changes. Originally you said "I have Two Scanned into my Machine pictures", now you say they are not yet scanned and are not the same size. The latter is pretty important information. It also helps to know the version of PSP, as the tools available change. I really am not using PSP much anymore as I have Photoshop available, but basically I think you will need to resize the smaller one to match the proportions so they can be lined up. I am going to assume they can be resized, and that there is some overlap available (ideally about 20%). In that case you can essentially create a panorama. Here is one tutorial for doing that with PSP and some other tools. If the two images were shot from slightly different perspectives, as opposed to a single picture that the magazine split and printed independently, then it will be very difficult and take more talent than I have. You can also try by manually lining them up. That is probably best done on a separate layer. You will need to increase the canvas size of the first image to create a space for the second image. By varying the opacity so you can see through the top image you could then move it until the overlap perfectly matches, then change the opacity back to 100% and merge the layers. If they don't match exactly then you have to do some creative cloning at the seam to rebuild anything missing or hide the artifacts. Remember also that anything you scan from a magazine is going to degrade if you try to blow it up to poster size for your wall, so before you go to too much effort, try just printing one of the scans to the approximate size you will want for that part of the final image and be sure the appearance is acceptable.
