New Script – Gradient Stripes

Gradient Stripes script for PaintShop ProThis script will allow you to combine two patterns into one: gradient and stripes.

Everything is done automatically and randomly based on the colors you provide. Each paper will be made of two unmerged layers: one gradient created from those colors you picked, and one striped layer based on a color from the gradient. You can generate up to 10 different papers in one run. Keep the papers you like, and discard the others.

New script – Text Paper

Text Paper script for PaintShop ProIf you like to have some text as a background paper, you probably can find some generic text, or some themed ones in specific colors to match a kit, but how about getting something totally unique, with the text YOU want to match your story or your project, in the colors you want to coordinate perfectly? That is exactly what this script will do, allowing you to create custom text paper.

New script – Paper Pattern 1

Paper Pattern 1 script for PaintShop ProIt is always fun to get some random patterns as they are... well... always different from one another. But they are hard to create from templates since they would have the same pattern even if the colors can change.

This script does exactly that. The end result is always going to be different, even with the same starting color, gradient or pattern.

The winner will be announced in the newsletter, next week. Not a subscriber yet? Not a problem. You can register here and it is free (and you only get one email per week).

Since Valentine Day is coming up, I thought of making some papers using reds as a starting color. So you have three full-size papers that will be perfect for your Valentine projects (you can also use the darker one for Christmas photos!)

New script – Scales

Sacle design script for PaintShop ProCreating pointy scale patterns, perfectly even is a very tedious task (try it!) but it is a unique design that could make your project stand out.

This script will use between 1 and 6 colors of your choice and create either a seamless tile of repeated colors and pattern or a random arrangement of those colors. In addition, you have the option to create scale patterns based on a colored layer. Furthermore, you can choose to have a contrasting outline (any color you want) or not.

The winner will be announced in the newsletter, next week. Not a subscriber yet? Not a problem. You can register here and it is free (and you only get one email per week).

Free scaled patterned papers in jpg formatSince you can use solid colors but also gradients, I had fun using 3 different gradients that I had in my stash to create a "one-color" seamless tile and then filled a full-size paper. I think that the result is stunning, don't you think?

New script – Brick Wall 2

Although you might want a regular pattern of brickwork, sometimes, some irregularities are wanted for a different look.

This script will create a fun pattern brick wall based on any color palette you want (up to 6 colors) with uneven lengths of bricks. Each run of the script will yield a different result even with the same color palette because of the random selection of each color for each brick.

Brick wall patternAs a sample of what can be done with this script, I am offering you a set of three full-size brick walls, in monochrome colors that you can use for your summer projects. Use it as a background or cut it into a frame or other shapes you need.

New script – Paper Trees

Paper Tree script for Paintshop ProCreating paper trees might be a simple task but it still takes a bit of time when you have to open a paper, make a selection, copy it, paste it to another image and then, create another piece, slightly smaller and repeating the process piece by piece.

This script will speed up the process and while you can generate up to 10 trees at the time and you can choose to keep whichever you want.

In order to win this script, add a comment on this Facebook post telling us what color OTHER than green, you would like to use to create a paper tree (remember, add a comment, not just a Like!)

Paper trees in PSD formatTo offer you a sample of what can be done with this script, I created 3 layered paper trees made from the kit Apple Crisp.

Each one is left with unmerged layers so you can tweak the placement of the pieces, rotate them, insert elements in-between, and more.

New script – Painted Background

cass-PaintedBackgroundLinda asked me recently if i could create a script that would generate a painted background from an image. Of course, one can always use the Brush Strokes effect in Paintshop Pro, but sometimes, we only want an abstract background based on the colors of a particular image we like. It can obviously be hard to find a perfect match unless we create it ourselves.

That is where this script comes from. Using a variety of brushes, the script will use the colors of the image and add colors on a separate layer, all randomly, for a different result every time.

You can choose what kind of "brush stroke" you want (whether it is a sponge effect, a dry or wet brush effect, a palette knife or an airbrush effect).

And you can also use that new background to showcase an element of the photo that you have extracted, by using blend modes, or other type of techniques.

Grab this fun script: Painted Background

Since this script can create a full size paper (if you want), you would also have the option to use that paper for other purposes than just a background (even though those backgrounds will be stunning). What other use can you think for those papers? Give me a suggestion in the comments below. Not a subscriber yet? Not a problem. You can register here and it is free (and you only get one email per week).

cass-PaintedBackground-PapersThis week, i picked a few very colorful images on Morguefiles and turned 3 of them into full size papers. Do you have a fun, happy project you want to showcase? You can use those background papers as a base for showcasing your photos. You can also use those papers in other ways (or use them with other scripts!).

You can add some blur, add texture, play with the adjustment layers, even blend them with something else. You can surely find more creative ways to use those colorful papers.

New script – Scallop Pattern 1

cass-ScallopPattern1You can probably create scallop patterns the loooooooong way and add individual circles, one by one, using a guide to align them perfectly, but that is so tedious.

This Paintshop Pro script will do all the calculations needed to align all the circles and create a seamless tile.

You can choose a solid color with an outline (obviously, without an outline, a solid color scallop won't show much!), or use a gradient. And furthermore, you can use linear, radial or sunburst gradients for very unique effects.

You can get this time saving script in the store: Scallop Pattern 1 script.

Do you want a chance to win this script? Tell me, in the comments below, how you would have made a scallop pattern before using this script (template? manually? other?) I'll pick a winner next week and it will be announced in the newsletter. Not a subscriber yet? Not a problem. You can register here and it is free (and you only get one email per week).

cass-ScallopPattern1-TilesFor a sample, this week, i made 3 different tiles using the script.

For the first tile, i simply used a solid white and a black outline. The script did the rest.

For the second tile, i just used a linear gradient, going from black to white and no outline.

For the third tile, i used the exact same gradient as for the second tile, but i inverted the colors (so it went from black to white instead of white to black)

Isn't that simple?

New script – Textured Papers

cass-TexturedPapers

We all know how adding texture to a plain paper can make the difference between a set of boring papers and a lively realistic result. Although most scrappers and designers know the importance of adding texture, it seems so easy to rely on our few favorite overlays and use them over and over and over again, leading to less creative results.

This script will add that variety by randomly picking overlays (between 2 and 4 per paper), rotating them randomly, layering them randomly, adding a random blend mode, and adjusting the opacity, also randomly.

Will it always give a pleasing result? Maybe not, since Paintshop Pro cannot see the result and surely, does not know your own taste, but that is not a problem since everything is left unmerged, so you can tweak all the layers, deleting some if you want, changing the blend mode, varying the opacity or even adding more overlays to the stack. One thing for sure, you will be playing with some different combinations that you might not have thought of.

The script will also rename each overlay layer to the overlay file name so you can easily refer to them if you need to reuse one or credit the source.

You can get this script in my store, at Creation Cassel.

There is a thread in the DST forum (that was added late) where you can win this script simply by telling me how many overlays you tend to use on a paper when you want to texture it. And by Monday night, i will pick a winner.

cass-Card&EnvelopeTemplates

 

This week, as a sampler, I am offering you a simple layered template for a card and envelope. You can use these templates for our Father’s Day contest.

The template, in PSD format, will create a card, 1200x900 pixels (so 4x3 inches), with an envelope that will match.

Use your favorite kit, designs, or supplies. Add the text you want, in the language you want.

You can use the card template to create a card in either orientation: portrait or landscape.

Sorry, the download link expired. However, you can get this set for free once you join the mailing list to get our weekly newsletter.

New products – Lined Papers

cass-LinedPapers

Do you see those Photoshop styles everywhere and wish you could use them in Paintshop Pro? This time, I created a set of 9 lined paper seamless tiles that you can use as you wish from the Material palette, but it also has 9 sculpture presets that you can use to apply to a solid color shape (any shape) with predetermined settings (that is why they are preset, right?)

Since the tiles are seamless, you can use them to floodfill any shape of any size. Of course, you can manipulate them further by adding some writing, doodling, stains, creases, tears, and more. You can colorize them to tint them in a color to match your photo, your layout or your kit.

The patterns and the presets are inside folders and if you save the whole folders (instead of the individual files), you will have them all neatly sorted and available inside a Category you can pick in the Presets or the Material. No more need to scroll endlessly, especially if you have lots of those in your resources.

Although they are not in .asl format, Photoshop users can easily convert the patterns which are simply in jpg format.

You can get this set of 9 patterns and presets in my store: Creation Cassel.

If you want a chance to get this set for free, hop over to the Happy Place in this thread and tell me what else than writing on, would you use lined papers in a layout. I will pick a winner on Monday night.

cass-LinedPaper-SampleThis week, as a sample for this product, i am offering you one tile with one preset (for PSP) and one full size page for everyone else (of course, PSP users can still use it). Do you remember that time when dark papers were popular and kids would use gel pens in neon colors to write on them? Now you can do the same. The tile and the presets work exactly as the lined paper tiles above.

Jennifer had fun playing with this paper sample and added some doodling.

If you are curious to know how the ripped edge was made, i can tell you my secret: it is a font. I used the RippedEdge font that you can use to create any paper edge that will look ripped from a spiral binding, whether it is from the top or the side. You can find that font in my store HERE.

Do you want to do the same? Simply click on the preview to start downloading the tile, the preset and the full page.

cass-OpenACopyDid you miss my post last week? Probably, because i skipped last week. Why? Because i felt bad not to have a freebie for you to download. Last week, i released a tool-script that will open, duplicate, save the duplicate with a new name (adding –copy to its name) and closing the original. All that, so that the Auto-save function can actually save your work and spare your original from accidental auto-save. It is still available in the store and it is FREE.

Of course, you can do the same steps manually, but you want to do something else than those tedious technical tasks, don’t you? In addition, if you bind the script and add the icon on your menu bar, you can get the whole process in ONE click. That beats doing it manually doesn’t it?
