Product Description

Amazon Review

Over the years, Paint Shop Pro has matured, gained features and garnering respect from users at all levels, but the increasing feature level has brought on greater complexity in using the application. Teach Yourself Paint Shop Pro 6 in 24 Hours is designed for new users of Paint Shop Pro who may not have time to learn and explore every feature, but need to master the basics as quickly as possible.

The book is completely goal-oriented. It begins with an index on the inside front cover, and also has a tear-out sheet that describes the tools found on the palettes and listings for all of the keyboard shortcuts. Each chapter is straightforward, covering specific features while building on lessons from previous chapters.

Paint Shop Pro is widely used for web graphics, and there is a special section for this medium. This chapter includes lessons on using Paint Shop Pro to create seamless tiles (for backgrounds), and navigation buttons. There are also two chapters covering the use of Animation Shop 2, the standalone application that ships with Paint Shop Pro for building animated GIFs and banners.

The book is straightforward and to-the-point, but lacks colour illustrations (making the chapter on colour correction somewhat theoretical) or an accompanying CD-ROM. Still, these measures do keep the cost of the book down, and is certainly a good investment for new users in need of tutoring. --Mike Caputo, Amazon.com

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential reading for users at any level 4 Mar 2000
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I am a user of Photoshop at work, yet use Paint Shop Pro at home. Being relatively new to it though, I thumbed through many PSP books, and came across this one. With the help of this book, I am now amazed by the power of Paint Shop Pro in comparison to Photoshop, and at a much lower price. The author's style is exceedingly informative, and a must for any Paint Shop Pro user. No long winded explanations of the technicalities of Paint Shop Pro 6, just information on what you can produce, and how to do it.....quickly! You can produce extremely powerful graphics in minutes, let alone 24 hours. This book will certainly sit alongside my PC at all times.

5.0 out of 5 stars A God-send of a book 24 Feb 2000
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I'm new to graphics and have been tempted by the reputation of Adobe Photoshop. Sadly I crashed and burned with this software. A friend recommended I set my sights a little lower and give Paint Shop Pro 6 a try. This I duly did and have never considered turning back. Now I've got hold of this companion read I truly am beginning to appreciate the tremendous power this relatively cheap software has to offer. The 24 hour lessons are easy to read yet very comprehensive. I'll be looking for books by the same author in the near future.

3.0 out of 5 stars Could have helped the first time user more 2 May 2000
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
As a novice to graphics this programme Paint shop pro appealed to me. The reviews were great for this book so i tried to use the programme but with difficulty. As usual I found out mostly by looking for myself. I thought the drop shadow section was only good for text and not for photographs. There were some useful tips but generally not for the novice. A more visual look could have helped me more.

5.0 out of 5 stars A 'must have' book for new PSP users! 8 Dec 1999
By Barbara Wilson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A fantastic book that will show you step by step how to get the most out of Paint Shop Pro, even if you have NEVER worked with a graphics program before (such as myself). After working through the book you will be very comfortable with all the different tools and you will have created some spectacular projects. The only negative remark that I have is that this book uses the exact same tutorials that were taught in the book for version 5, they have however been expanded to cover the new features in Paint Shop Pro version 6.

3.0 out of 5 stars Well... 27 Mar 2000
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This book gets three stars. It's okay. If you are totally new to Paint Shop Pro, this book is for you. For those that know a good amount or are masters, don't bother.
First of all, it's almost exactly like the Teach Yourself Paint Shop pro 5.0 in 24 hours. The only thing is added is the few new features in 6.0. Even the tutors are the same...same wording, same everything. If you have 5.0 book, don't bother getting this book.
Second, it reads like the manuel. Why pay 20 bucks for a book you already have?
Third, don't believe the 24 hour thing. Usually there is about two or three tutors per one hour session...but trust me, it takes more practice and more tutors with some applications such as layers and masks.
On a good note, it does teach you some techniques and also gives you information on PSP's tools. You also get information on basic web design with a lot of common web design questions answered.
