I'm going to
show you how to personalize your PSP 9 workspace. PSP 8 would
work the same..
This is how my
PSP workspace looks but you can set yours up any way you'd like
You can download
my workspace for PSP 9HERE if you'd like.
for the last
three newer versions of PSP
PSP X 6 Dark
Here's how you
would load my workspace if you want to use it... First download my
workspace file into your documents/mypspfiles/workspace folder, go
to PSP and go to FILE/workspace/ load and DON'T choose mine first...
choose default or the arts media one first.. it don't matter which..
THEN go to workspace again and load Norma's workspace.. and click
Load.. OK... you should see your workspace change. and look like the
below capture of my PSP.
Drag and drop
this arrow to keep up with where you are in the tutorial
As you can see
above.. I have certain tools I use all the time on there..
others I don't use like the photo tool bar...That option is under
VIEW/ToolBars.. you can toggle them on and off..
options you have the option whether or not you want the tool bar
floating or stationary...
Now shown below
to go VIEW/Customize.
box pops up..on the Commands Tab you can go to each category on the
left and all the individual effects is on the right... on the
right..those icons are the ones that you can click and drag up to
the tool bar.. I put all the effects that I use all the time.. like
3D shadow.. Inner Bevel..Noise.. all the ones from each category..
that I want out there.. so just the CLICK of the button. uses that
effect with out having to go to to effects and find all those
specialized ones.. .. it saves your steps. which HELPS
To the left of
every tool bar you see this
this you click and drag.. you will notice this is the way to move
your tool bars around...
As you can see..
I have drag and dropped some of the tools I use alot.. to the end of
the regular tool bar.
The regular tool
bars ends with this the rest
after that.. I've added myself. .To name a few
Inner bevel, 3D
shadow, sharpen, noise, gaussian blur, duplicate layer, merge all
layers, merge visible layers, merge layer down, select NONE, select
ALL, Float, Invert, Cut and seamless tiling...After you get every
thing out there on your tool bars like you want.. you go to
FILE/WORKSPACE/SAVE name it... that way if something
awful happens.. you have your tool bar saved.. also if you save and
burn it on a disk.. and you have to reformat computer.. or reinstall
your PSP.. etc.. you will have it saved.. all you have to do is put
it back in your 'mypspfiles/workspaces folder'
I hope I've made
this a little clearer on how to set your workspace up..
