New script – Doppler

Doppler effect script for PaintShop ProThe Doppler effect is that difference in sound you hear when a vehicle runs in your direction, and then away from you. It is a sort of echo of the soundwave.

This script will create that "wave" on top or on the bottom of any text you provide. You can use a solid color, a gradient or even a pattern. In the end, the main text and the "echo" will be on separate layers so you can apply different effects to it, separately.

In order to win this script, add a comment on this Facebook post telling us how you would use this effect (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).

Doppler effect on individual digitsAs a sample, I ran the script on individual digits starting with a black text. This will allow you to colorize the elements to match your project. To maintain the transparency on these digits while adding color, lock the transparency of the layer, fill with the material you want, and unlock the transparency.

New script – Layered Cutouts

 

Layered paper cutouts script for PaintShop ProIf you have some paper-related projects and you need a fun and unique title, why not use a series of layered outline cutouts? Although this might be a bit tedious to do manually, you are in luck as this script can do that for you in no time.

You can have a single color for all the layers, but you can also have a single color, fading to something lighter, layer by layer. You can also have two alternating colors for each layer or completely random colors, based on your choice of colors. You can choose any font you want and write any letters, digits or dingbats.

So many options to use.

New script – Shaped Text

Shaped Text script for PaintShop ProShaping text can be a tedious task using the current tools of PaintShop Pro because most of the time, you have to use the Warp Mesh tool and this means a lot of nodes to tweak to get a single shape.

This script includes options for 30 different "envelopes" to shape your text. This will be perfect for titles or wordart.

New script – Text Painting

Text painting script for PaintShop ProYou can convert a photo into a painting made with text patterns with this script.

The script will do all the work for you and paint using extracts from Alice in Wonderland. However, you can also use a different pattern or set of patterns (you could edit the script, to use multiple text patterns). You can use a page of binary code, or a love letter. You just have to make sure that you save your patterns in png format so it will give the wanted result.

Once done, you can also change the color of the final result.

Text painted digitsAs a sampler, I created some gradient digits, from white to red, and ran the Text Painting script on them. I chose to keep the original colors so you have something other than grey. Of course, you can always colorize those digits with a different color if you prefer.

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 – Phrase Cutout

Phrase Cutout script for Paintshop ProSometimes, you might want to showcase a word or a phrase in a unique way. Using a cutout is one of those original ways to add a title, a phrase, a greeting, etc.

This script will do all the repetitive tasks for you in just a few seconds. You have total control over what font you want to use, what word or phrase you want to write and what size you want your strips to be. The script takes care of the rest.

Although the strips will be black, you have the option to change their colors as you wish.

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.

The script will let you choose any text, and any font. You can separate the text any way you want in two lines. Then, the magic will happen and the script will split the text either horizontally, vertically or diagonally to create the cutout effect.

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.

Split text monthsHow about a way to date your layouts? Whether you are making a Project Life album, or you just want a fun way to identify when those pictures were taken, here are some split months. Each one is about 420 pixels in height, and the width will depend on the text.

If you want to colorize then, you can do so to match your project. Add a texture if you want. Add a grungy look with some brushwork, etc.

New script – Twisted Text

cass-TwistedText

Although we often like to have regularly placed and perfectly aligned text, on some occasions we really want something funky and irregular. Do you know how to place each letter individually to create a funky text?

One method will require you to type one letter at the time, and rotate it and move it. Then repeat for the second letter, and the third. It is not hard, but it is definitely time consuming especially if you have more than just a handful of letters.

The other method is to type your text, normally, and then go with Objects > Convert Text to Curves > As Character Shapes. This will separate individual characters and convert them to shapes. Although they would remain as vector objects, they lose their Text properties: you can no longer change the font.

Finally, the third method is using this PSP script. In fact, the script will use the first method for you but much much faster. You can choose any text (any length), any font, any color (or even a gradient or a pattern), you choose how much rotation and displacement you want, and if you want to have the colors (in case you picked more than one) to appear in sequence (like in the alphabet in the preview) or in random order (like in the “Suzanne” of the preview).

Each letter is left, at the end, as individual vector objects, and still as text so you can, if you want, change the font for one or some letters/characters. You can also change the colors if you want or rearrange the letters. In fact, you can just use the randomly rotated letters and place them all around your layout if you prefer; no need to keep them in line either!

Grab this time saving script and have fun with Twisted Text.

If you want to learn how to create that kind of effect, manually (hopefully for only a handful of letters) and other fun text tricks, check out the Texting Again Master Class in the Scrapbook Campus.

New script – Layered Text

cass-LayeredText

Some Paintshop Pro users like to make signatures tags, cards in addition to digital scrapbooking. This script was requested by Sarah who wanted to make those signature tags with two layers of letters, but found it was quite a task to do manually. So this is how this script came to be.

With this script, the most complicated task you will have to complete, is choosing the options! You can start with any text, but you have to choose the font, the size, the color, for both layers, then, you add an outline (you choose the size and the color) then, you can add shadows to YOUR liking. What is so tedious about this kind of text? Each letter has to be on a separate layer so you will end up with a ton of layers. What does the script do for you? It renames all the layers so you can easily find which layer you might want to edit, change, or move once you want to personalize it even more.

You can do a lot of creative work with this script: create a date, a title, add a name or a wish to a card, make a door sign, place cards, and much more!

You can get this script in my store on special this weekend: Creation Cassel.

cass-LayeredText-SampleAs for every new release, i have a give away  in the DST Happy Place section. Check this thread, and add your name to it. I will be back on Monday night with the name of a winner. It might just be you!

 

Did you want to use one of those layered words? Here is a free sample. Whether you have summer or winter photos, you probably have either a vacation photo or a school photo. Choose which one you want to use. These samplers are in png format (not layered) and the shadows are not included so you can add your own to match your project. Will you show me what you do with it?

cass-Stamp1 And by the way, did you notice the other 'new’ script? In fact, it is a pretty old script, to create a postage stamp. It was among the first scripts i coded, and it was a challenging one. For some unknown reasons, i had it in my older stores but never had it in my personal store. Either that, or it vanished at one point or another. In any case, i decided to find the old copy, dust it and update it to the newer PSP versions. And it is now available in the store. Check it for yourself.

New script – Overlapped

cass-Overlapped

Do you like to have slightly uneven text for titles or wordart? Do you hate the tedious process to realize it? Of course, your graphic program is made to have nicely even characters in a word, so you have to take extra steps: have each letter on its own layer, choose a single font for each letter, choose the color, and move somehow, and repeat for each letter (might be ok for a short word but if it is long, it is tedious). This script for Paintshop Pro will do all the process for you, with a randomness that will be cool in the end. If you don’t like the actual way the letters are, you can change them around since each letter is on a separate layer. And if you don’t like the colors, or the font used, it just takes a few seconds to redo it. Trust me, i have done it a few times!

Are you on the lookout for an original way to show a date? A place? A name? or a full title? This will be perfect for you. You can use the same script in so many ways, with so many options that it will look like you did it all by hand, one word at the time (shh… we won’t tell! you used a script).

If you are a designer, this will be a great way to add a few themed words to your kit, in the matching colors from your palette.

You can find this script in my store: Creation Cassel

I know that some scrappers already bought this script, but whether you bought it or not, you can still go and add your name to the RAK thread in the DST forum HERE for a chance to win this script. If you already purchased it, you would just get a coupon for a future new release. Go post before Monday night!

cass-Overlapped Time for a freebie! Here is a sample of two words that might be common enough in layouts. I am sure you have photos of friends or family so there HAS to be a layout where you can use one of these two words. These were made using the script, with two or three colors. They are in PSD format, with each letter being separate. If you want to the letters around, you can do it. If you want to replace a letter with an element, you can do so too.

You need to be logged in to download this sample. You can either login, or register on the top of this page.

I am sure you will use these in a layout, so why not share how you use it? I can post the layout in here and in my newsletter (or even in the product description, who knows?)

 

 

 

 

April promotion

I think a lot of you had fun shopping in April during our Built your Discount promotion. Of course, you were more numerous than i could count, on my birthday! Thanks for the wishes. By now, i have emailed everyone who made at least $10 purchase during the whole month. This discount coupon is valid for ONE purchase, but it can be as big a purchase as you want. Plan wisely, and use it before the end of May. Fill your wishlist; it might help!

If you didn’t get an email from me with your coupon and you think you should have had one, check your spam folder (sometimes they eat the good stuff), and if you still cannot find it, just let me know and i’ll look into it.
