Hi my name is Robert Correll. I am really excited to bring you this tutorial on Corel Paint Shop Pro Photo XI. It's an action packed tutorial filled with information about the new features in Paint Shop Pro, and then continuing on to project based lessons and parts which feature scrapbooking, freehand drawing, painting creating some cool logos, marketing signage like banners, counter mats, wobblers, creating CD packaging and DVD packaging. I am really excited about this. I'm going to spend the rest of the time in this opening lesson just opening up some of the samples that I've created that I'm going to use in the tutorial. This is a marketing banner where I've used text and graphics in a more or an advertising arena where you would use Paint Shop Pro Photo to create this to then display information about a company. This is going to go in the scrapbooking part where I've got these silver brads on this fabric background. Just going to keep opening. Got a button that I've created. Got a camouflage background for scrapbooking. Got a logo about a place called Casa Loma which means house on a hill. Got a CD cover, Go Superhero Go by Robert Correll. This is the front side, and then the back of the CD cover is the track listing where I've got a picture of the sky that I've applied different effects to and then overlaid it with text. Really, really cool. Chalked edges, look at the chalked edge down this fabric strip, which you would use in scrapbooking. Cling, this is a static cling, another marketing signage where you might create this to put on the window of a business and advertise. Counter card, another advertising marketing signage which would sit on a counter of a retail establishment. Counter mat, same kind of concept only it's laying down now. You can see I'm using similar elements for my kind of fictitious advertising campaigns where I've got logos under the same color schemes, and a theme of flowers. I've gone online to get stock photography for free to use in those things. Cutout letters, another scrapbooking, that's cool. Distressed fabric, I really like this one, that looks very real but I did it completely in Paint Shop Pro Photo XI. DVD cover, I created this in Paint Shop Pro as an illustration of again a commercial use that you might use Paint Shop Pro for. DVD disc art, which you would use to print out on the DVD. A logo for a place called Eatzzaria, which is imaginary. More graphics. Torn edges. I want to give you a sense of everything we're going to accomplish in this. Look at this, a gear pin that you would use in scrapbooking. This frame which would be like a globe frame in scrapbooking, you would put a picture of your son, your daughter, your spouse in there, or whatever your favorite candy bar. That was globe frame. Glued glitter swirl is the appearance of glue with glitter on top of it on a scrapbook page. Grommet, fairly simple but you use that on scrapbooking pages to hold things down. Hand stitching, simulating hand stitching on a scrapbook page. Java Barn, a logo. Again, I've kind of divided this whole tutorial under a couple of three kind of broad sections. New and enhanced features using those, and then more of the home use, scrapbooking, drawing painting, and then more of a commercial use, logos, marketing, CD packaging. So I think that a lot of appeal to just about everybody. That was java this is lace for scrapbooking. Now when I face say for scrapbooking you can put that in anything you want to, it doesn't have to be for scrapbooking. This is machine stitching over here as opposed to hand stitching. Neon lights. Another logo, Odeus Publishing. This is from the painting part where I painted this border as an example of basically taking a picture that I like, I like the subject matter here, my daughter and I having a fun time, but the background and border it's just kind of blah, there's not really anything cool or exciting to it you know. Put some art media down, apply a few interesting effects and bam you got a nice glitzy glamour shot here. That's painted border. Paperclip, here's a paperclip that's entirely fictitious, that is absolutely made up, I drew it. And you can do it too. Use a paperclip to hold down a picture of myself and two of my sons camping in the backyard. That's paperclip. Paper cutouts I really like this, this came from an idea of my wife who puts hearts on the wall for Valentine's Day and I said you know that would be cool to put in this project. And so I went ahead and did it. And you know you can do cool things like this in Paint Shop Pro Photo very easily. Alright that was paper cutouts. Picture corners, creating the black or dark gray picture corners to hold pictures down on scrapbook pages. I just don't have the time, I don't have time to include everything that we're going to do and show you. And that's a good thing because that means you're going to get a lot of value for this product. These are just the Paint Shop Pro files I'm scrolling through, not even showing you all the things we're going to do with the new image effects like time machine, film and filters, adjusting depth of field, skin smoothing, your new tools like color changer, some of the enhancements over here. So I better wrap this up and we'll get to all of these things and more in future lessons, and I'm really excited to have you along with me.
