Pracken's Paint Shop Pro Tutorials

Pilgrim Settlement: Bench


I've made a series of items for a Pilgrim settlement. This tutorial will show you how to make the barrel (it's there at the side of the house in the lower right corner). This is a very easy tutorial, and most folks should be able to whip it out very quickly.

You will find the tutorials for the other items in the series here.

For this tutorial, you will need the following:

Paint Shop Pro. I used version 7.04 but if you are familiar with PSP, you should be able to convert the tutorial without problems. You can download the latest PSP version demo here.

My selection files. Place these in your PSP selections folder (or another location of your choice). [NOTE: If you are having trouble opening the selection, move it to the selections folder inside PSP - for some reason PSP sometimes won't recognize them in other places].

My seamless fill tile.

You may download my materials here.

Step 1. Open a new image 100 x 100, white background.

Step 2. Add a new layer. Load selection 1 (selections>load from disk - then navigate to the location where you placed the selection file).

Flood fill with brown #4A4538. Contract by 1 (selections>modify>contract). Flood fill with the "04phfill" tile that you downloaded (scale 100, angle 90). Deselect.

Apply an inner bevel, using the settings in the screenshot.


Step 3. Add a new layer. Load selection 2. Flood fill with same brown as above. Contract by 1. Flood fill with the fill (set angle to 355). Deselect. Apply inner bevel, same settings as above.

Step 4. Repeat step 3 above for selections 3 and 4.

Step 5. Delete the color chart and the background layer. Merge visible layers. Save as a psp file.

It's now ready to use with your house.
