I just got a new computer it has PSP X trial version installed on it and I have a few questions, please and thank you.....
1) Why is it called Corel PSP X instead of Jasic, is there a difference?

2) If it's the same then where are the drawing tools?

TIA, I thought I had several more questions, but it's late and my brain just shut down lol.

RE: ???'s about PSP X..............

Finally a question I can answer. The program PSP was sold by Jasc to Corel, therefore a new name.

Try opening PSPX, click on Toolbar and scroll to Tools and make sure there is a check there, to show the toolbar. All the tools should show up down the left side of the program including the drawing tool, which I believe is third from the bottom, and looks like a pen nib. There are drop down arrows beside some of the tools, click to see what they are.
You must have an image open for the tools to be active.

Hope this helps you - new versions are always a pain until you find your way around. Personally, I never quite make it before the next version comes out!

RE: ???'s about PSP X..............

1.Corel bought out Jasc and HORNED in on PSP.
2.As with everything, we are now buying skeletons. Do you mean the Pen tool on the left?


RE: ???'s a b o u t PSP X..............

Thank you ladies, I was so confused about the name change. I finally found the tool bar for all the tools last night but when I posted the question I was getting frustrated thinking that all this version had to offer was photo editing. I have 7 8 and 9, but had never used X and it seems like they move two or three things with every version. I like version 8 but I had to get used to it too, argh!!

Which version do I need to key in for X to use animation shop? I don't really hate change, but this is getting to me hehehe.

RE: ???'s about PSP X..............

Animation shop is a separate program that works with ALL PSP versions. It came with your 7,8,& 9.
I have the icon on my task bar for quick click to bring it up when I need it.


RE: ???'s about PSP X..............

Thanks Urlee, I guess the problem I'm having with all this is because I have this new computer and the only version of psp on it so far is X. I'll have to load the other versions to get AS. I think I should have stuck with 7 lol.

RE: ???'s about PSP X..............

I use PSPX and love it, it takes a while to find your way around, its quite an achievement when you have. I use animation shop, I keep both in my toolbar and switch. There is a patch for PSP10.03 which enables you to configure unused commands "update back to animation shop". I seem to manage with switching, no probs. Hope this helps a little.
