Hi all

So i want to learn how to make siggy's but i don't even know where to begin. Do i download templates for them? as well as kits? Also after i download and unzip the files, how do i know what goes where? (brushes, tubes ect?) Are all the kits and tempales found on IkeaGoddess compatible with Paint Shop Pro?

Argh, sorry to ask so many questions, i just really wanna learn

Opps one more thing, is there a step by step help thread on layers anyone knows about, those things really confuse me

Ohh and any help or tips for a beginner would be very much welcomed

Thanks in advance

I know nothing about PSP, but I know some of the ladies here use it, so maybe that can be more helpful. But, for now try this thread Paint Shop Pro Lessons and Tutorials - JustMommies Message Boards maybe it will help you with some of the things you're unsure of. Good luck! It's quite addicting!! lol

I use PSP but have never uses templates. I download kits from digiscrapdepot.com
The siggy school here should help you some. I learned by trial & error.

I am still stuck on what happens after you download the kits? Where in paint Shop do you put them? Or are they just used as an image that you need to open each one to use?

Sorry hope that makes sense

When you download them download them to a folder on your computer. Then when you have PSP open, just go to File: Open & find the file with the kit then you just open the elements you want. Hope that helps.
