Okay, call me an idjit later...
I cannot find where you can desaturate in PSP9 -_-; I have been using levels and the colour mixer to give that "sort" of effect however it is simply not working with everything i would like to accomplish.
Edit: Problem solved!! Thank you everyone for your replies!!
This is driving me deranged. I've made my way through my icon-making babyhood using Paint.NET and now GIMP is scaring the heeby-jeebies out of me.
So: I've managed to grasp how to paste an image. Go me. What I can't work out now is how to select areas and crop. Every time I use what I think is the selection tool, it just moves the whole image across the page, instead of drawing a nice selection box ... And what's with the cropping options? Autocrop? Zealous Crop? Where's the NORMAL cropping tool? At least, those may BE the normal cropping tools - I can't tell, as I haven't figured out how the f they work.
For any possible helpers' reference: when I try to select things, I'm using the "select rectangular regions" tool in the top right of the toolbox thing.
Um I have no idea what the blur tool is for PSP9. Can anyone help me.
Um how would I do shadows and drop shadows on my text in psp9?
I have a question which I think will probably have a very simple answer. I didn't see anything about it in the memories so...
How do you get a brush to show up in the color it came in? Sometimes I download a brush with a few colors but it just takes on whatever the last color I was using was. How do you make it show up in its original colors? Thanks!
