I played with some of the tools, including the One Step
Photo Fix, I am sure that is going to be invaluable. I did
no other adjustments such as sharpen or unsharpen mask, and
I'm pleased with both the manual corrections and the one step
I found typing difficult on the graphic, the preview screen
is way behind you, and there is a lag. Maybe I'll get used
to it. I am sure I could turn off the preview, but that defeats
the purpose IMHO. The other new text features are fine, although
I was satisfied with the PSP 7 text features.
The transparent background gif I made for the title was
very dithery in PSP 8. I made it in PSP 7, with identical
settings and it turned out much better. So, I used 7 for the
I made the backgrounds for this page using the new seamless
filter in PSP. I am very pleased with it. For the lightest
background I also used the new Balls and Bubbles and randomized
till I got this muted effect. The second background was also
made all in PSP 8, but I don't remember what I did to get
the effect except for using the seamless tile and the kaleidiscope.
Sally, I had to laugh in the lesson when you mentioned
something about the new "reset" button.... : ) I
think it took me the longest to find that as any of the tools.
I will be looking forward to next week's lesson. Thank
