Corel Paint Shop Pro Photo XI Tutorial

Corel® Paint Shop Pro Photo XI is an affordable yet powerful graphics program. With its built-in Learning Center that lets users choose automatic photo fixes or precision editing controls for fine-tuning, both novice and professional alike can take charge of this application. Its robust tool set allows users to create and work with bitmapped and scalable vector graphics or even use "life like" art media tools, effects and filters to add further enhancement. In this project based tutorial, author Robert Correll, teaches the essentials of the application, starting with installation and set up, and how to organize files before moving on to teach drawing and painting techniques, marketing signage and banner creation, digital scrapbooking techniques, CD-ROM packaging design and more! Sample images are included. To begin learning Paint Shop Pro XI today, simply click on one of the links.
