A Photo-PAINT image list, just for you…

Written by Jeff Harrison
October 4, 2010

After pruning a Potentilla Goldfinger plant, I noticed some of the stems, leaves and flowers looked very healthy. They became good candidates for a Photo-PAINT Image List.

To use it, download it here. (I tweaked it: latest file version is ‎October-‎04-‎2010, ‏‎2:28:48 PM)

This is a low-res 2.2 MB version, but still has good detail for most needs. The original is about 18 MB!

1. Open Photo-PAINT
2. For a test, make a new file: 1000 pixels wide by 800 pixels tall.
3. press the “I” key and then press the folder icon on the property bar.

4. select the shrub-low-res.cpt file downloaded from the link mentioned before. You’ll be prompted with a dialog, set to these values:

5. Set the property bar values to those shown below.

6. paint back and forth across the page from top to bottom.

Here’s an example of brushing a few rows at the top of the image, then increasing the nib size as I went down the screen every few rows. I started with a nib size of about 200. The goal is to simulate perspective. Click on it for a larger version.
