    OK who out there knows alot about paint shop pro?( I have #7)
    This is one of my main things on my pc and There are a few things I need to learn. And or for someone to introduce other cool things about paint shop pro to me and/or others aswell
    Well I need now to learn about layers and Vecters?
    and why do some things look different after you save them.
    Also if anyone knows about the picture tubes? My favorite one is the rainbow. I'd like to know if I can or how do you make a simular picture tube? ( change the colors ) I have tried before but without luck. This I'm sure has something to do with layers.
    Layers. what,when,why and how to apply

    OK, i'll try tackle layers / vectors for ya. My descriptions probably leave a lot to be desired though:

    Layers

    Layers can be used in all sorts of ways, and allow some seriously cool things to be done. Basically, most pictures are just a single layer, showing all the pixels in their own little places. 2 dimensional so to speak. When you introduce layers into it, you are adding a 3rd dimension, and can put things on top / bottom of other objects. This is handy if you are working on a picture where you need to make changes in the future, or need to blend items together and so on. Check out the attachment for a very simplistic view of what layers can do.

    Layers can also be used to apply effects to layers beneath it. Not sure about PSP, but Adobe Photoshop is good for this. There are numerous effects that can be added using this method.

    Vectors

    Used when creating shapes / objects. Basically means that you can manipulate these items once that have been placed in, instead of just sticking down pixels. Common example is laying down basic shapes as vectors, then using the guides on it to change size, rotation, and so on...

    Now those are very brief looks at what each is. There's a lot more possiblities, but that's just a simple start.
