Several icons were lost in the great computer crash of summer 2006. This annoys me greatly, but what can you do? However, here are the ones I had backed up.

A Tip for saving textures

18
May 2005

Just a tip about textures
I just thought I’d share this, because I’ve been getting frustrated for quite awhile and I’ve just figured out the simple way out of my frustration.

I’m a big fan of using textures on my icons (as you can see from the one I’m using). I’m also a fan of keeping my pictures in separate folders based on what they are pictures of (eg. Guns N’ Roses, with sub-folders for each band member, etc).

When making this icon, I started with a texture (Stock Images > Textures > texture-maker’s-name) and used a picture of Stephanie Seymour (Guns N’ Roses > Axl > Stephanie) and played about with an overlay from a music vid (Guns N’ Roses > Videos > November Rain) (I eventually canned that idea), then I wanted another texture on top (Stock Images > Textures > texture-maker’s-name). Lot’s of messing around with different folders.

Now I have simplified the whole thing. All of my textures have now been installed in my C:\Program Files\Jasc Software Inc\Paint Shop Pro 7\Patterns folder.

I used IrfanView 3.95 to batch-convert all of the jpgs into bitmaps and put them in that folder. Now I just create a new layer and flood fill with them, rather than searching through loads of folders for the right one. I’ve kept the textures in their separate folders arranged by the maker’s name, but now they all come up in one place.

I am a genius.

Well, nerd actually – especially given my exceptionally anal filing system for my pictures – but that’s not the point. I have saved myself valuable seconds of hunting-time when it comes to textures. *grin*

Hope this idea works for a few other people.

Note: With Paint Shop Pro 9, you can just save the pictures, in any format, in your My PSP Files > Patterns folder, which lives in My Documents.

(PS: Please tell me I’m not the only one this obsessive about keeping my pictures in order!)
