2007-09-30 [Jitter]: Ah great :D when you make them start uploading :3
The png image I put up there is just for preview :) the real file is the one with the url :)
2007-09-30 [Artsieladie]: Right, b/c the psp loads as an url & you can't see it unless you download it. However, the png image can be saved to one's pc & opened up in PSP & made into a picture tube, as well. The psp image is not absolutely necessary to make a tube. :P
2007-09-30 [Jitter]: I know. What I posted here are the tubes ready :P It took me two years of using psp to realise I could make my own tubes xP
2007-09-30 [Artsieladie]: Me, too. I kept wishing I could learn how to make my own. I still haven't learned how to make the ones that have 'several images in one tube', though. :/
2007-09-30 [Jitter]: I just found out :3
2007-09-30 [Artsieladie]: he he Yeah, thanks for passing along the info! The last image up reminds me of a slinky. lol
2007-09-30 [Jitter]: Hahaha indeed!
2007-10-09 [Triola]: Knowing I'll sounds completely ignorant here, what, exactly, is a picture tube? >.>
2007-10-09 [Jitter]: It's brush-like tool on paintshop pro. Kinda hard to explain. Maybe Artsie can do better than me ^^;
2007-10-09 [Triola]: Haha, ok, I'll wait for her then :P
2007-10-09 [Yncke]: I hope Artsie doesn't mind, but I'd like to give that definition a try. :)
It's an image or a set of images that is repeated in a certain way when you drag your cursor over the image.
For example, if that certain way is randomness and the set of images contains stars, you can fill a black image with a random constellation of stars by just clicking on random points with the picture tube.
2007-10-09 [Triola]: Oooh, ok. Kinda like the leaf brushes in PS then? Where you get random leaves of all sizes all over your image by randomly clicking or draging your cursor?
2007-10-09 [Jitter]: Neater than that :D The red piep thingy tube has a single circle cell and it makes this nice hose :D
2007-10-09 [Triola]: Huh, must try out if I ever come across Paintshop Pro :3
2007-10-09 [Jitter]: yes :D It's love <3 Although it looks fake if you overdo it x)
2007-10-09 [Triola]: Hehe, as with everything :P
2007-10-09 [Jitter]: Indeed ^^
2007-10-09 [Artsieladie]: I don't mind, [Yncke]. :) The main difference, I think between a Photoshop brush & a PSP tube (brush, sorta'), is that a tube can be placed "identically" as it is. If you take a tree 'tube', for e.g., it will be a tree with all the colors & whatnot as it is. With a Photoshop brush, though, it will come out all the 'one' color that you select. For instance, if you have the color green selected for your brush tool, the tree will be just that one color, green. :P
2007-10-10 [Yncke]: And just for the record, those one colour template brush thingies exist in PaintShop Pro as well. :)
2007-12-07 [Artsieladie]: he he Right, but when you have tubes at your finger tips, I go for these, when I have my PSP open.
