New script – Bow #20

Bow script for PaintShop ProA simple bow might be all you need for your project, but how do you find the correct one? Using a ready-made bow and colorizing it might work but might also be a lot of work.

This script will use any straight ribbon and cut random pieces from it to create the bow. This means that even using the same starting ribbon, you will have different results.

In the center, you can let the script use the ribbon for the knot or choose a solid color for a contrasting effect.

New script – Line Painting

Line Painting script for PaintShop ProWhen I was in school, I remember one art class where we had to use straight lines of different thicknesses to replicate a simple image. I was not very good at that, but I would have loved to have this script, which does it in just a few seconds.

Starting with any image, the script will reduce the number of colors and change it to greyscale to determine the brightness of each section and then fill those sections with straight lines in different thicknesses. In the end, you get various options to finish the project. You can use those line paintings to display photos that have odd colors, or not in focus, or just as a background for your page.

New script – Paper Fringe

Paper Fringe script for PaintShop ProIn order to create a paper fringe with PaintShop Pro, you will need to cut your element multiple times, and then, warp each piece one by one. But there is a problem: how do you warp one piece of paper without warping the next one? Well, there is a way to do it, but it is tedious, which is why this script will be a time saver.

With various options in the orientation, length, width, and regularity of the slits, there is also randomness integrated into the script to allow for a different result every time you run it, even if using the same settings and the same starting image.
