Creative Discovery in PaintShop Pro
Lesson 17

You will need these tubes for this lesson - These are the ones that come with 2022 Tubes 2022

These are the ones that came with older versions Older Version Tubes

These are the ones that I used in my extra display that did not come with 2022 Tubes in my extra Display

These are just some extra ones for you that are not in the lesson Extra Tubes

First - Wait for the Video player to load
Then - You need to watch the video before doing lesson below - it has a lot more important information and explanations for you
You may do the lesson as you watch the video though
Also - Click the full screen button on the player to watch it full screen or you may not see all of the settings properly


    Open a new image
  • 600 x 500 Pixels
  • Raster Background
  • Colour - White
Click OK

Repeat as you will need two. Minimize one for now

Activate the Picture Tube Tool

Then open up the Tubes at the top in the tool bar by clicking on the little arrow at the side

Watch the demonstration on the video and then find 5 of the tubes that I have used in the demonstration and use those to make a display on your white image.
Play with them and experiment with the settings.

Place them all on Separate layers, by placing a tick in the "Create as new raster layer" box


Click on the Colourize Icon OR go to Adjust > Hue and Saturation > Colourize
Already you will probably see a colour change to one of the tubes you have on your image - depending on which layer you are on.

Go to the Hue area and click on the larger arrow which will open a colour slider box.
From here you can choose a colour

Go to the Saturation now and click on the larger arrow which will open another slider box.
This one will give you the option of how dark or deep the colour is that you chose.

Play with these and colour each of your tubes.
Having them on individual layers will help with this.
Now put a drop shadow on them, MERGE and a simple buttonize to finish the display

Save as:- YourName - Lesson17a


Find 5 tubes that you find interesting and display them as you did in the previous part of the lesson.
No need to colourize these though
Just add drop shadows, Merge and buttonize
