Objects Convert To Path (TEXT)

Objects Convert To Path
Paint Shop Pro XI
by PCArt)



I used the vector paint script and vector tube scripts on the text above.

You Need
Vector Paint Script
Unzip your Paint script and place it in your Scripts Restricted Folder.
Vector Tube - The tube version of this script.

Read the instructions at the download on how to use your scripts.

Try Doing Lesson 36 as well.

I use Paint Shop Pro XI.

For the Glitter Text

1) Open a New Image
2) Select your glitter fill and open in your work space
3) Select your paint brush** learn about this in Lesson 36
4) On your new image write your text "Create as Vector" selected
5) Go to Objects/Convert to path
6) Run your Vector Paint Script.

If the result is too large or too small - UNDO - and adjust your size or step - and run the script again.

Your painted layer will be on your Stroked Objects Layer.

You can now delete your Vector layer.

**You need to follow this tutorial to familiarise yourself with the process of making glitter elements

Jewelled Gold Cross

Jewelled Gold Cross using Super BladePro - this was originally a tutorial by Karen Stimson/Wool Sweater Street

The link to the tutorial no longer works - so once you have downloaded the .PSD file and have installed Flaming Pear Super Blade pro;

Open the cross .psd file in Paintshop Pro - select all - select float and then go to your plugins and apply blade pro -  it is just a matter of trying random settings until you have a jewel like filling to your choice. Then save the cross as .png to use as an element on your layout.

Presets are usually posted in .zip file form, so you will need WinZip or another zip utility to unzip them.
Click on the file to download it.
Put the zip file on your Desktop to easily find it. Once downloaded, unzip the files to your BladePro environments and textures folder. Preset .zip files usually contain the .q5q or .q9q files and any bitmaps needed to produce the effect.
