With the new DAZ 4 out, I am updating myDAZ hatchling lessons to match DS4.¬† There will be 2 separate hatchling lessons, one for DS4, and one for the lower versions.¬† If you are interested in learning the BASICS of using DAZ 4¬† (or version 3), you will need to join my forum.¬† Just go to the forum link, read the instructions about becoming a member, make your introduction post, comment/chat with the member, and soon you’ll be able to take the hatchling lessons.
Also, at the forum, is a set of lessons started for Hexagon.¬† These are not so structured, as I am not an expert in making models.¬† But someone asked me how I did it, so there are my tuts.¬†¬†
The forum also includes PSP hatchling lessons, Poser hatchling lessons, Photoshop hatchling lessons, and¬†Digital Scrapbooking Lessons (using kits).
I have uploaded some tutorials:
Buttons N Frays Frame Tutorial for PSP.¬† Picture of my son, not included.
I have also begun some beginner tutorials for Photoshop.¬† These Photoshop Hatchling tutorials can only be accessed through my forum — Dragon’s Breath Resources.
I have also begun a beginner course to texturizing templates for DAZ/Poser.¬† It is intended to be a beginner course, but it will get you started in creating your own textures.¬† These DAZ Texture Hatchling lessons can only be accessed through my forum — Dragon’s Breath Resources.
A new version of Paint Shop Pro is out:¬† Version X3.
I actually got my copy last week, but with being sick for the stomach flu, I just installed it today.¬† Whoa! when I opened it, what a difference!¬† I closed it right back¬† lol
After being sick, I still did not feel with messing with much, and it looked like I would need to work hard on learning something alot different than PSP X2.¬† But after a little rest, I opened it again, and tried opening an image.¬† The image opened and changed the layout of PSP X3 into a layout that was familiar.¬†¬†¬† So I played around until I figured out how to set the layout to the older version and save it that way.
Here’s my first tutorial for PSP X3:
I’ve played a little more and so far have been able to do everything in PSP I have been doing without any trouble.¬† One of the changes I have noticed is that they have fixed the resize image box.¬† During the last version, the resize box was changed so that it did not maintain the new size you had changed it to.¬† Every time you resized something, you had to enter in a size.¬† Well, now it¬†keeps the last size you entered.¬† Saves typing time.¬†
Looks like transition from version X2 to version X3 will be really easy.¬† I’ll be writing tutorials for X3 now, as many things¬†seem to be the same so older versions will be able to use the new tutorials.¬†
The new PSP X3 can be found on the Corel site here.
Learn to use a mask in PSP to create a tag like my new Rain, Rain, Go Away Tag.

Create a custom shape to use for your watermarking.¬†¬† What’s so great about using a custom shape?¬† The shape can be resized as needed for large and small projects.¬† I wrote a tutorial for creating such a watermark shape in Photoshop. You can find it here:
