  • My PSP thoughts...

    I began using Paint Shop Pro© years ago...with version 4.0! It was the first graphics program I used to play with digital images. That was long before I ever had my own web site...I was just learning a new hobby.

    I was spending hours and hours searching the internet for tutorials written for this program.  The Paint Shop Pro© community was HUGE!!! And a friendlier group of people you never met.  I felt like I was starved for knowledge and I'm sure my family only recognized me from behind as I spent so much time in front of the computer monitor satisfying my needs for all things Paint Shop Pro©. 

    I found myself thinking..."I bet I could do that with PSP".  I was off exploring the many tools this program had to offer and learned just how powerful this program was.

    Sharing was what the PSP community was all about and I wanted to share some of the things I had learned.  I became a tutorial writer myself. My goal was to write tutorials that anyone familiar with the program could follow.  I was a stickler for concise directions and screenshots when necessary.

    One thing led to another and one day while reading the newsgroup, someone posted a message containing a huge list of tutorial sites.  I saved that list and referred to it often.  Soon the list became outdated and I decided to put a current list on my site.  I compiled tutorial links from EVERYWHERE! I put them together and they went up on my site. Keeping that list updated was a lot of work, but it was done with love!

    Then in 2004, Jasc Software, the creator and owner of Paint Shop Pro©, was sold to Corel.  I was naive enough to think this wouldn't make much difference. Of course, I was wrong. While not a problem, it isn't the same anymore.

    Several new versions of the program have been released through the new owners, Corel, but the changes have been minimal.  While I did purchase version X, that's as far as I got.

    Paint Shop Pro is still my program of choice for graphics, but graphics no longer hold my attention as they once did.
