Full Description

Paint Shop Pro 8 is a feature-packed graphics tool that enables you to edit and enhance your photos, as well as use its powerful drawing and text tools to create artwork from scratch. The scope of this program is immense: you can use it for all your graphic design projects at home, business, or just for fun. Photography, text, vector graphics, webpage interfaces... the combinations and possibilities are endless. For the inexperienced, knowing what you can achieve is just as difficult as learning how to do it.

Paint Shop Pro 8 Zero to Hero answers all these questions and enables you to create professional-looking graphics for your home and business projects. In fact, you'll learn to do everything the program can do—fast. From Paint Shop Pro beginner to master, this book is designed to get you up to speed in the blink of an eye.

Zero to Hero is more than a catchy slogan and an opportunity for puns and graphical representations of tights, capes, and phone booths. It's a style of learning designed by friends of ED to reach beyond dry technical explanations and dusty old authors who don't know how it is for real users and wouldn't know good design if it slapped them in the face with a wet fish.

With a Zero to Hero book, you can choose how you learn. Learn everything you need to know about Paint Shop Pro 8 by working through the first section of the book from start to finish—or, alternatively, you can dive straight in to the inspirational Hero chapters and refer back as and when you need. Then later, when you're a hero yourself, the book is easily used as a reference tool.

When you're done, you'll be ready to wear your underwear on the outside—metaphorically speaking, of course.
