New script – Cogwheels 2

Cogwheels script for PaintShop Pro

Whether you are into steampunk style, or just like to work with various mechanisms that use gears, creating new shapes might be a little tedious.

This script will offer you the options for the number and types of teeth, and the number and types of spokes. But you can also generate something totally random, in just a couple of clicks and every one of them will be slightly different.

Get this script in the store: Cogwheels 2

See how you can run the script and how to attach all those gears together:

In order to win these tubes, add a comment on this Facebook post telling us how you would use gears and cogwheels (remember, add a comment, not just a Like!) 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).

Cogwheels frameFor a sample, I created a frame using various cogwheels generated by the script. I resized them, added a texture using Filter Forge, added a bevel, and shadows. I also had fun adding chains to connect those wheels.

The download includes a pspimage format with a mask group to add your photo, but also a simple png file if you don't have PaintShop Pro to open the pspimage file.

New Script – Cogwheels


This week, my new script will help you create various cogwheels. You will be able to add any color or texture to them once they are done as the script will only create the shape. You will have the options of creating your own, custom design, or ask for a randomly generated wheel. You can have square, triangular or round teeth, and you can have between 15 and 60 of them. Talk about variation! but that is not all. You can create straight “spokes” inside (between 6 and 12), or some decorative cutout. Again, you can let the script generate them, or draw them yourself, using any tool you want. You can make bold designs, or delicate and intricate motifs. How many different wheel patterns can you create? As many as you dare design! Each wheel will measure about 1000 x 1000 pixels, and you can resize it as you wish.


You can get this script for Paintshop Pro in my stores: Creation Cassel .


If you see cogwheels, what does it make you think of? We know that those into the Steampunk style might like those cogwheels, but can you think of other themes where they could be used? If so, just tell me in this thread at the DST forum for a chance to get this script.cass-Cogwheels-cluster


And now, for a sampler. I am not particularly good at clustering, but i tried it. I made this corner cluster for you, using 6 different cogwheels, and some old chain tubes. I am not sure if you will like the cluster, but in case you dont, i am including the individual cogwheels in the zip so you can make your own cluster, or add them separately. If you make another cluster out of them, would you care to show me? I would LOVE to see how you can use them.
