Paint Shop Pro is the perfect environment for the budding artist and those new to computer graphics. Reasonably priced, it allows newcomers to dabble, get the feel of the very different world of computer art and experience the thrill of their first creation without breaking their pocketbook.
It is my desire that this tutorial will aid newcomers and oldtimers alike in becoming proficient in the use of Paint Shop Pro 5. The interface and new features are such that even those familiar with previous versions of the program will have difficulty maneuvering at first.
