Drop Shadows in Paintshop Pro



I spent an hour or two playing with the skew tool and the drop shadow effect in my old Paintshop Pro photo editor. I still use the PSP as it is more familiar to me than my PS CS. My drop shadows still need a bit of work. The skew tool needs a lot of work. I shall put this endeavor on the shelf for a while, until I get more work finished on my web page.

Hi Maggie, gee, I didn't know you could do that stuff in Paintshop. I've had it for years but basically just use it for intial browsing and editing of newly downloaded images. This is really nice. I'm going to have to take another look at this :) Great pic.

Thanks. It was fun playing.

I have a plug in filter called Eye Candy 3.1 and a trial version of Eye Candy 4000 (probably doesn't work any longer) I believe Corel now owns what used to be Paintshop Pro. Anyway, hope you have the plug ins. Otherwise, I once read instructions on how to do drop shadows in Photoshop, but have not saved a copy -- but it can be done in PS.
