What Is A Tube

For this tutorial you will need:
PSP 8 or 9

If you have recently downloaded Paint Shop Pro 8,9 or X and joined a Group, you can't fail to have missed all the talk about TUBES

Basically a Tube is a Graphic, but a Graphic you can use in many ways. You will wonder how you ever lived without them lol.

Right, lets go have a play.

Open PSP.

Go to FILE and then NEW, click OK.

Click on the Tube Tool  Icon 

Mine usually opens set at a scale of 100 - See Below


Now click on your Drop Down Menu On Your Toolbar.


This box  will appear with all your tubes, click on the tube you want just once, it now appears in the window.

(You will learn how to download more tubes in the next lesson)

I opened a blank workspace of 200 x 200 used the above settings for my tube, clicked on my new canvas and this was the result

New image with my Tube set at 50 scale gave me Below result
