New script – Playdough

Playdough texture script for Paintshop ProAs a child, you likely have played with playdough (or plasticine). You must have created textures, poked your finger in it, rolled it to make snakes and used cookie cutters to create various shapes.

The script will generate a texture based on a texture tile but also a random array of settings, making each run create a slightly different texture.

You can choose one of 4 thickness, which will be more appropriate with the size of the project, or the size of the individual element.

The script will even add a drop shadow on a separate layer. If you like that shadow, just keep it. If you prefer to add your own, you can do so too.

New script – Split Text

Split Text script for Paintshop ProHave you ever wanted to create a wordart with half of the text in negative from the rest? It is not too hard to do manually, but it requires accuracy. And then, if you want to create a series, it is longer.

This script will make this process very fast and easy.

Once done, everything will be merged. If you want to colorize the end result, add a bevel, add a texture, etc. it will be up to you.

New script – Laser Cut Doilies – Rectangle

Rectangle Laser Cut Doilies - script for Paintshop ProWho has too many doilies? In the last few weeks, you got scripts to help you create circular and square doilies, but with a bit of math, I managed to code a script to allow for doilies that have different sizes in height and length.  That is really adding another level of flexibility for your projects.

You can create doilies a wide as 7200 pixels, which would span the width of a double page layout.

It works just like the script to create square doilies but will duplicate the segments unevenly to match the size you want.

New script – Laser Cut Doilies – Square

cass-lasercutdoilies-squareThe last script that was made available to you was to help you create round laser cut doilies, but what if you want them square?

It will use a similar process to create the rounded corners, but you will also have the option to modify the design for the straight edges, either by adding more cutouts or removing some. This will allow you to have some unique designs along the straight edges, if you want.

You can create simple and basic designs or make them very intricate and detailed. It is all up to you.
