The Random Freebie Fest

For the next couple of weeks at the Support Message Board, I’ll be giving away random, limited time PSP freebies. Something may, or may not, be posted everyday. You never know what you’ll get. It could be brushes, filter presets, gradients, Poser generated “tubes,” tiling textures. It’s just all random.

Two new tutorials & new message board

After a long unexpected absence, I’m back with two new tutorials and more!

The Tutorials

The tutorials are relatively easy ones. After such a long absence, however, simple probably was just the right place to start.

The first one is Butterfly Fae Construction Challenge. It contains some brushes, a faerie, some accents, and a mask.

The second one is Punky Dots. It shows you how to use PSP’s built-in halftone effect. You can get some interesting sort of “pop art” results with it.

The tutorials have been ready for a while, but I had to recode the tutorial index. I lost the unencrypted version of the newest version. So had to update an older version. I finally got it finished and uploaded this morning. Many thanks to Luna. She helped me double-check it.

New Support Message Board

Our old board had some issues that I wasn’t able to repair. I’ve set up new board. Although it lacks some of the more sophisticated features of the old board, it’s quite a nice place. This new type of board is much easier to update. So I’m hoping that will help keep it running smoother.

Luna has agreed to be my moderator again. We have some good news. We’ve agreed on raising the maxiumum image size to 400 by 400 pixels. We’ll start there and see how that goes.

I’d really love to have you join me at our new board. The link is on the message board rules page here.

I hope to have a lot of Paint Shop Pro related fun over there. I’ve got a lot of sprucing up to at The Lair. Then, I’ve got quite a few unfinished tutorials sitting on backup discs. The board will be the best place to keep up with the news.

I’m back!

After a long unexpected–and unannounced–hiatus, I’m finally back. I don’t really know how to explain it. After certain events took the wind out of my sails, I just had no desire to deal with Paint Shop Pro, The Lair, or much else. My muse abandoned me, and… Well, it’s been a very long time…

I recently picked up PSP again and I’m finding myself enjoying it again, too. I have some new plans for the site. For starters, I’m adding my blog directly to my site instead of using a third-party provider. You’re reading the results now.

Please stay tuned. More stuff is on the horizon. I hope to have new tutorials and downloads up soon.

Hugs!
