Paint Shop Pro Tutorials by Karen
My father and I used to have a little home based business, glazing photo`s onto china collectors items.
I still have some of the ones we made for our "samples" display, and when looking at them the other day, thought how nice it would be to do something similar in PSP.
So I have photographed them and hope to be able to digitally recreate them,
then write tutorials so others can make them too!.
This is the third tutorial in the planned series, I hope you like it!...
Before we begin you will need my files... CLICK HERE to download and unzip into your selections folder.
You will also need your own photo and my golden fill, right click and save into a folder of your choice.
Ready?... let`s create our rosette plaque!

If you didn`t come here from the tutorials index and want to go there now
I hope you enjoyed this tutorial which is written for PSP V 7 but should work in other versions.
Open your photo in psp, use your selections tool set at square, antialias 0, feather 0.
Drag the mouse around the main part of the photo to select a square area.
(This is important because if you leave the photo oblong,
when placing into the selection on the plaque, it will be out of proportion.)
Go edit / copy / edit / paste as new image. Minimise (click minus (-) sign at the top.)
also open"kkgolden.jpg"... and minimise as well.

Go layers / new raster layer / ok.
