Convert font into Paint Shop Pro / PSP shapes
All the PSP shapes sets on the site have their origins as fonts in one way or another. Corel PSP is an unusual application in that it does not make it easy to import vectors into the application - you can only import them via fonts unless you use Paint Shop Pro preset shapes format. All other formats are rasterized on import into PSP. To create my presets in psp, I use a pre-created font and then use a text file with 100 characters pre-defined which can be selected and used with the text tool in PSP - each PSP text field is then converted into a set of multiple character shapes - there is a slight error with the conversion of the font and psp with PSP 8 so I often use PSP X3 to do the right click convert of text to preset. I then save the entire file of all 100 converted character down to the lowest format I wish to use, such as Corel PSP 8. All the layers / characters are given a unique name otherwise psp might display a duplicate error. All the characters are then saved individually via the export to psp shape format (I have a custom palette set up for this as that makes it a lot easier than going back and forth between menus).
Many of the font sets include many additional characters that cannot be easily accessed via the keyboard without using key combinations so you might see 100 but there may be 200 or so in the set and perhaps some more if there were a few variant sets included.
PSP shapes format: PSPshape / JSL for Paint Shop Pro
The shapes are all in PSPshape format (for most of all of the shapes packs). The shapes are stored in the earlier JSL format for the collection set. The pspShape format stores a single shape vector graphic, the JSL format stores multiple vector shapes. Both formats can be opened in all the recent versions of PSP.
The artworks are now created in PSP shape format 8, and can be used with all versions up from 8
How to install the preset shapes in Paint Shop Pro / PSP
To install the PSPShape files for use in Paint Shop Pro, you must first find the location of the install folder for your version of Paint Shop Pro, this can be found via the PSP file menu and preferences command and file locations (preset shapes). You can either use the existing file location for the PSP shapes or you can create a new folder for the files, it is up to you. Once found, place the PSPShape files in that location and then re-start PSP.
You can also click the file location button in the preset shapes palette to set the location for the shapes
Access the PSP shapes files via preset shapes tool - below, see the tool in corel Paint Shop Pro X5 but the same approach for X4 X3 to version 8 (before that, the format changed)
Re-coloring preset shapes tutorial in Paint Shop Pro
The Paint Shop Pro preset shapes are vectors and are stored with an arbitrary color (in most cases though some of the sets have bonus itemsand other color effects attached to the PSP shape decorative graphic). Before you apply a preset shape to a document, set the color to be used by the preset PSP shape via the materials palette.
You will have to de-select the retain option so you can override the original preset shape color.
You can also change the color (or the other color options as well as adding a grain to the PSP shape) via the object selection tool. Click on the vector properties button on the tool options palette, the dialog will allow you to modify the color (though sadly not in real time as it only changes after you click the OK). The fill and the stroke can be modified, and unlike many software, the stroke can also be a tile as well as including grain information.
Adding a grain to the vector graphic allows for a wonderful range of distressed and grunged Vector graphics.
Saving the preset shape as a new vector PSP shape
You can use the preset shapes as supplied but if you wish to save the current vector shape as a new PSP shape (PSPShape format), say you have added a new stroke or tile to the preset, then you will also have to modify the name in the vector properties - the reason being that PSP will complain if it finds a duplicate layer name in its loaded shapes (though different versions handle this better). Change the name via the vector properties or via the layer panel. Once you have changed the name, you can then go to the file menu followed by export command and shape option and give the artwork a new file name (unless you want to over-write an existing file) and you will then see the new shape in the shape palette.
PSP shape and layers
If the shape is created as a vector then it is created on a new layer, though subsequent added Vector graphics are added to the new vector layer.
To create a new vector layer without an actual vector graphic then go to the layers menu and select new vector layer
Crop tool and the Paint Shop Pro preset shapes
If you crop the document, the vector shape layer remains untouched. The vector graphic can be still moved and rotated and the vector graphic is not reduced down to the size of the remaining document
Paint Shop Pro preset shapes and organizer
You can also use the organizer feature of PSP to scan through all the shapes you have, simply point to the folder and small thumbnails will be generated of all the shapes found (PSPShape format) - the quality of the image generated is less then desirable though. It does mean that you can sort and print out all the shapes found on your machine, something the PSP shapes browser cannot do.
How to turn fonts into PSP
The preset shapes sets are only a small small selection of shapes on this site for use with Paint Shop Pro. The fonts are also a great source of artworks for use in Paint Shop Pro. It is very easy (and quick) to convert the text tools into pspshapes - just right click the text characters and select the convert commads. The fonts, though, can be used as preset shapes anyway. You can add gradients, solid colors, patterns, textures etc to the text characters in the same way as the preset shapes. To see the 1000s of our wonderful font artworks, please check out the font section.
This is also a solution if you are using Paint Shop pro 7 or psp 6 or 5, simply use the text characters as shapes instead of JSL files.
Likewise, the brushes sets for Adobe ® Photoshop mainly all contain PNG images which can be used as PSP brushes; the patterns for Adobe ® Photoshop generally also include PNG images which can be used as PSP patterns.
Preset shapes browser - Paint Shop Pro
You can display the available preset shapes via the tool options (you might have to go to the view menu and palettes menu to display the tool options, though by default the toolbar is displayed). The tool options will show all the shapes. You can also change the category but the third party preset shapes are only displayed when the category is ALL or PRESET SHAPES. You can also specify the file location for the shapes from this palette as well as how the thumbnails are dispayed. Select a preset shape from the palette.
Drawing with the preset shapes tool in Paint Shop Pro
Use the preset shape tool to draw the vector graphic on the current document. There are a number of options available via the presets tool bar and these include anti alias, retain, create as vector. If the "retain" is checked then the preset shape will look as stored in the preset shape file (depending on the color at the time of creation)
If you wish to change the color of the vector, then set the "retain" to OFF and then re-draw the shape and the shape will then take the current material color. You can also modify the color any time via the objects menu 'properties...'
EPS decorative vectors are included in later sets
Many of the later number sets include the same in EPS format and you can use the EPS via the open menu command, you will be asked to set a size and resolution. The key thing about the EPS format, you can always use them in other applications such as Photoshop, Illustrator, Word etc
Layer effects applied to psp shapes
Go to the layer palette and click the button on the right at the top of the palette
PSP Preset shapes and scale, rotate
The preset shape can be re-modified / scaled via the psp preset shapes tool
PSP Preset shapes - editing shapes in Paint Shop Pro
Select the vector and then click the pen tool - it is just below the psp preset shapes tool. You will then see the points for the current selected graphic, you can now edit them in countless ways such as shifting individual points or multiple points. Select a point and then drag the point to a different location. Click the nodes (or points on the curve) and you will then see the anchor points for that segment and you can then rotate and drag those anchor points to modify the curve for that selected segment. You can alo right click the nodes and set various things such as node type 'asymmetric' 'symmetric' 'cusp' 'convert to a line' etc which are also very useful in modifying the graphic. You can also use the various options along the top of the app to change the angle of the anchor points etc. You can also right click with selected nodes and flip, mirror, rotate, skew etc to create all kinds of new forms. You can remove all curves by using the convert to line command with all the nodes selected.
You can also duplicate them using the edit command (right click with the pen tool) duplicate and then you can also use contract and expand (you can set the expansion via the top bar options) There are also other options available to reverse the path, merge etc. The options are pretty decent and you can use it to manipulate your paths in all kinds of ways
PSP Preset shapes and manage option
You can also use the preset shapes with the manager and adjust section but you need to save the file with the shapes. You can apply cyantope, BW normal, pencil, retro soft effects via the manual section to the artworks manage option preset shapes.You can also use the adjust section in PSP to manipulate the decorative graphics - control the white balance, brightness, contrast, fill light, crop, clarity adjust option
