I mostly use Corel PHOTO-PAINT to create my graphics. However I was really impressed by the great special effects that it is possible to create by using Paint Shop Pro. In particular, I saw some really good works by Jorgen Bodde and other people on The CartoonPalace pages.
So, I took the opportunity of the trial period of that product to make some experiments, which are published in this section. Then I ordered the product from Jasc, and now I use it every time I need to quickly edit images, or to capture and modify screen areas.
I also used a very useful tool developed by Jorgen Bodde too to log the sequence of operations needed to create the effect. It is called Paint Shop Pro (4.x) Function Logger and it is really a must for any Paint Shop Pro user. You can download it from Bodde's site.
Least, but not last, I wish to signal a great product to create or modify plug-in filters designed for Paint Shop Pro and other products: PlugIn Commander by firstname.lastname@example.org.
By the way, the image used on the top left corner of this page, just before the title, was created by one of the Bodde's effects that I like more: Special X. Thank you Jorgen for sharing your great ideas.
