Converting fonts into Paint Shop Pro / PSP native format
All the sets on this page have their origins in the fonts (that is why you can use any of the font sets as a perfect source for a new artwork in PSP).
Corel PSP is an unusual application in that it does not make it easy to import vectors into the application. All the vector formats are rasterized on import into PSP.
To create my presets in psp, I use fonts combined with a text file filled with 100 characters (the basic keyboard characters as well as a few extra ones that are not visible on the keyboard) and this was then copied into PSP for the text tool (they were spread over a number of different groupings as I noticed that PSP 8 use to crash if too many characters were added so had to split them into groups of 10 or so characters). In the end I decided to use PSP X3 as it was a lot more stable with the character groupings so this was no longer an issue.
All the layers / characters were given a unique name otherwise psp might display a duplicate error. All the characters were then saved individually using the export command (I have a custom palette set-up for this, as that makes it a lot easier than going back and forth between menus). There may be easier workflows but this is the one that works best for me. It would be great if the application had a vector import (AI etc) and conversion feature but the open command etc have been fairly unchanged for a while now (relating to the vectors)
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.
How to install the preset shapes in Paint Shop Pro / PSP
To install them, you must first find the location of the install folder for your version of Paint Shop Pro and this can be found via the PSP file menu and preferences command and file locations - there are lot of other file locations for deformation maps, environment maps etc You can see the one you want highlighted in the image before. You can either use the existing file location or you can create a new folder for the files, it is up to you. Once found, place the files in that location and re-start. You can add locations as well as remove them. The best location is in your user section (especially if you are just using a standard user account and not admin) as you will not need a password etc to add the files.
Re-coloring preset shapes tutorial in Paint Shop Pro
They are all vectors and are stored with an arbitrary color (in most cases though some of the sets have bonus items and other color effects attached to the decorative graphic). Before you add the vector, you can change the default color to be used via the materials palette (such as texture, pattern, gradient etc) This does depend on the retain style option though.
You can also change the color (or the other color options as well as adding a grain to the PSP vector) 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 can have texture, patterns and gradients added. You can also further modify the color by using effects such as the "artistic effects" "texture effects" "image effects" "art media effects" and many more but any change with these filters will turn the vector into a raster format (sadly there appears to be no smart filter feature as yet available)
Saving the vector as a new file - export PSPShape
You can use them as supplied but if you wish to save the current vector as a new export 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 files (some versions of the app 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 tool in the palette. The color of the artwork (gradient etc) is saved and if you add a style then that is also saved and can be re-imported.
Using the tool initially creates a new layer, all subsequent applications of the vectors are added to the same vector layer. You can see all the elements added to the layer via the layers palette. If you wish to add the graphic to a new vector layer then you have to create a new vector layer via the layers menu and then the next drawn graphic will be added to that (and so on). You can double click on the vector layer to display the layer properties such as the blend, opacity as well as styles. You can click on the sub layer items and you can then modify the fill and stroke as well as stroke width and line style etc
Crop tool and the Paint Shop Pro preset shapes
If you crop the document, the vector layer remains untouched. The vector graphic can be still moved and rotated and the vector 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 artworks you have, simply point to the folder and small thumbnails will be generated of all the artworks found (PSPtube etc) - the quality of the image generated is less then desirable though. it does mean you can print out a complete printout of all the artworks (probably a better copy than the one supplied with the set in the ZIP)
Preset shapes browser - Paint Shop Pro
You can display the available graphics 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). You can also change the category but the third party ones are only visible in some of the categories such as ALL. You can also specify the file location from this palette as well as how the thumbnails are dispayed.
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 vector layers
Go to the layer palette and double click the vector layer (or raster if you have converted them to a raster format). You can modify the opacity, blend mode (normal, darken, burn, dodge etc), blend channel, layer styles such as bevel, inner glow, reflection (something that even Adobe Photoshop doesn't have) etc. The layer styles are very useful if you wish to save the vector (and the vector can have styles) as a PSPTube file. The layer styles are also saved with the preset format so as soon as you select the tool again, you will see the bevel etc as well as the gradient etc
They can be re-sized, rotated etc via the toolbox in PSP so any path can be changed to any angle
Editing them in PaintShop Pro
Select the vector and then click the pen tool - it is just below the tool that creates them in the first place. 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
