throughout your image ” for example, you want to select only the sky, as
seen through the intersecting branches of a tree. You could Shift+click each
spot manually with the Magic Wand tool and painstakingly add area after
area. But, fortunately, Paint Shop Pro offers an automatic version of that
same task.

First, use any selection tool to select one area. Then, choose Selections➪
Modify➪Select Similar. Paint Shop Pro selects all pixels similar to the colors
within your selection.

How similar? The Select Similar command looks to the Magic Wand tool™s
Tolerance control to determine how similar to the original color a selected
pixel should be. A high tolerance means that a color can be significantly dif-
ferent and still be selected; a low tolerance selects only colors that are very
close to those in your original selection.

A difference between the Magic Wand tool and the Select Similar command
is that it asks whether you want to select an area contiguously. A contiguous
Select Similar action adds only the areas that are right next to the current
selection; discontiguous selections add parts from all over your image, regard-
less of where they are.

You can also add or remove selections based on how close they are to certain
colors. For example, if you™re trying to cut and paste The Artist Formerly

Known As Prince Who Is Back to Being Called Prince Again (and who is
known for wearing purple outfits), you may want to expand your selection
to only lavender areas. Choose Selections➪Modify➪Select Color Range,
and choose a nice shade of magenta in the color box.

Sometimes, you don™t really want all the pixels of similar color, just those
within a certain region of the image. Fussy, fussy. For example, you may want
all the blue sky, including the stuff that peeks through the tree branches, but
not the blue pond. No problem. Just draw a freehand selection around the
pond while pressing the Ctrl key to subtract that area.




Creating Interactive Web
Pages from Graphics
Paint Shop Pro not only creates static Web images (images that just sit there),
but can also create the interactive graphical portion of the Web page itself.
For example, Paint Shop Pro can help you

Slice a single image into a multi-image grid and create the Web page that
assembles the pieces into a grid and makes each image a hot link.
Create graphical rollovers ” images that change as you pass your mouse
cursor over them ” and write the Web page code to make the rollover
happen.

To accomplish its Webbish wonders, Paint Shop Pro writes HTML files (Web
pages), not just image files. You can then use these HTML files on their own
or copy their HTML code (including JavaScript code) into other Web pages.

You probably need to understand how Web pages, hot links, and rollovers
work before trying to use Paint Shop Pro to make these features. Check out
the Wiley Web site, at www.wiley.com, to find various books on Web pages
and design.



Creating image slices
Professional Web designers rarely design in HTML; instead, they create an
image of how they want their Web page to look, by using multiple layers and
futzing with the page until it looks perfect. Then, when they™re done, they
slice that image into multiple images (known as cells) and assign a link to
each cell. Paint Shop Pro creates the HTML code (a table) that™s necessary
to hold the images in a grid and also creates a series of new images from
your original, single image.

You can use another technique, called image mapping, but it has two major
disadvantages: The entire image has to be downloaded completely before
the viewer can do anything (and haven™t we told you about the importance
of speedy downloads?), and you can™t use rollovers effectively. We advise
skipping this technique unless you have a pressing need.

To slice an image, follow these steps:

1. Choose File➪Export➪Image Slicer, as shown in Figure 18-14.
2. Zoom and position your image in the Image Slicer so that you can see
the whole area you intend to slice.
To zoom, click either of the magnifier icons below the image: + to zoom
in or “ to zoom out. To position (pan) your image, click and hold the
mouse button on the Pan icon and drag in the preview window until you
see what you want.

3. Click either the Slice tool or the Grid tool.
The Grid tool divides your image by using a grid of evenly spaced lines.
You can adjust the lines and their positions afterward. The Slice tool,
although tricky to control, enables you to slice wherever you like.
4. Slice your image.
If you use the Grid tool, click anywhere on the image. In the Grid Size
dialog box that appears, enter values for the number of rows and
columns in your grid.
If you use the Slice tool, click where you want the center of your cut to
be and drag either horizontally or vertically; the Slice tool creates a hori-
zontal or vertical cut that expands in both directions from where you
originally clicked. You don™t need to drag entirely across the image; the
line automatically extends to the image edge or to the next line it
encounters.
Note that you can use both the Slice tool and the Grid tool to provide
extremely fine control; for example, you can create a grid of boxes and
then subdivide each of those boxes with the Slice tool.
5. Use the Delete tool to remove any extra lines.
Click the Delete tool in the Tools area and click lines you don™t want.
6. Use the Arrow tool to drag any lines that need moving.

If your image has any solid white cells, you can improve the Web page™s
downloading speed by not placing an image in that cell. Using the Arrow tool,
click the cell and then uncheck the Include Cell in Table check box. This trick
also works for other solid-color areas, but you have to edit the resulting
HTML file to set the background color to match the image color.

At this point, you™re ready to enter the hyperlink (Web address) information
that describes what Web page appears when the person viewing your page
clicks a cell (see the following section).



Entering links
After you have created your hot spot areas or cells, the next step is to enter
the Web address that you want each hot spot or cell to link to when someone
clicks it on the Web. Follow these steps:

1. Choose the Arrow tool (in the Tools area) and click a hot spot or cell.
2. Enter the URL (address of the Web page) you want to link to in the
URL text box.
If you intend for the page to appear in a named frame of the current
page, enter the frame name in the Target area.

TEAM LinG - Live, Informative, Non-cost and Genuine !
323
Chapter 18: Ten Topics a Little Too Advanced for the Rest of This Book

3. Enter a text description of that new page in the Alt Text text box.
4. Select where you want the new page to open on the Target menu.
If you want the page to open in the same browser window, you can leave
this area blank. Otherwise, you can force the user™s browser to display
the URL in a new and exciting way.
The only target that™s universally useful is _blank, which opens the
URL in an entirely new browser window and leaves the original page
untouched. The other three ” _top, _self, and _parent, respectively ”
are useful only if you™re using an HTML technique called frames to design
your page (which is something that™s generally considered bad form these
days, so we just pretend that they don™t exist).
5. Repeat Steps 1 through 4 for all the cells you have created.

You may also want to save the work you have done so far, which we describe
how to do in the section “Saving and reloading your work,” a little later in this
chapter.



Optimizing cells
Unless you tell it to do otherwise, Paint Shop Pro saves all your cells as GIF
files, which can create grainy images and horribly lengthy download times.
A little compression can make all the difference; remember that the JPEG
used in Chapter 15 took four minutes to download before it was squeezed
down. Is your page so cool that you would watch a blank screen for five min-
utes before you saw it? (Studies have shown that people don™t wait for more
than 12 seconds.)

To optimize your images, follow these steps:

1. Select the Arrow tool (in the Tools area) and click a hot spot or cell.
2. Choose whether your cell should be a GIF or JPEG image.
Refer to Table 15-1 in Chapter 15 for a comparison of formats. (You can
use PNG, but not all browsers support it.)
3. If you want to optimize the image ” and you should ” click the
Optimize Cell button.
This step brings up the GIF Optimizer or the JPEG Optimizer, as dis-
cussed in Chapter 15; pay special attention to the Download Times tab.
If you want all your cells to be optimized the same way, click the Apply
Optimization to Whole Image check box.
4. Repeat Steps 1 through 3 for all cells you have created.



TEAM LinG - Live, Informative, Non-cost and Genuine !
324 Part V: The Part of Tens


Saving and reloading your work
You may want to go back and change your hot spots, cells, or links later, or
perhaps use similar settings on a slightly different image. For those reasons,
save your work as a file. (Note that this file isn™t the Web page file or an image
file; to create those, see the following section.)

Click the Save Settings button. The Save Slice Settings dialog box that
appears works just like any other file-saving dialog box. Enter a name and
choose a folder for your file, and then click Save.

If you want to use or edit your settings later, open the Image Slicer tool as
before and click the Load Settings button. Open your file in the Load Slice
Settings dialog box that appears. The hot spots or cells you defined earlier
are now set up for the current image.



Saving the result as a Web page
For all this slicing and dicing to be of any use, you need to transform it into a
Web file. The Paint Shop Pro Webtools feature produces the two kinds of files
you need for your Web page: one or more image files (in GIF, JPEG, or PNG
format) and a single HTML file. You create as many image files as you have cells.
The Web page (HTML) file that™s created incorporates those image files and
provides the links, hot spots, and other programming that makes it all work.

Before you produce the final files, you can test your Web page by viewing it in
your Web browser. In the Image Slicer, click the Preview button. Your Web
browser is launched and displays the result. You can test all the hot spots or
other features you have created.

To create your Web files, click the Save or Save As button. If you haven™t cre-
ated any Web files since you launched the Image Slicer, the Save As dialog
box appears. As with the Save As dialog box in any program, you enter a file-
name and choose a folder. The name and folder you choose is the name and
location of the HTML, or Web page file, you™re creating. (The Save As dialog
box doesn™t appear if your Web page file already has a name and folder.)

Paint Shop Pro creates a series of cell images in the same folder as the HTML
file; although each cell file™s name begins with the name of the original image
file, Paint Shop Pro appends additional characters to distinguish the cell.



Making rollovers
Rollovers are images (typically, buttons) that change appearance whenever
you position your mouse over them or whenever you do various other mouse
TEAM LinG - Live, Informative, Non-cost and Genuine !
325
Chapter 18: Ten Topics a Little Too Advanced for the Rest of This Book

or keyboard actions. For example, a button may get darker. Rollovers are
popular Web page features because they provide immediate feedback to the
user™s cursor motion.

The basic mouseover rollover, which we describe here, simply changes as the
mouse passes over it. It requires two images: the original image (a button, for
example) and the one that substitutes for the original when a mouse cursor
passes over it (a darkened version of the button, for example).

To create a rollover, follow these steps:

1. Prepare the pair of images for each rollover.
For each rollover, you need the image that first appears on the Web page
and the image that takes the first image™s place. If you like using sliced
images, first use the Image Slicer to slice a large image into separate cell
images and save your settings. Close the Image Slicer, load into Paint
Shop Pro all the cell images created by the slicer, and modify them in
some way; for example, you can make them darker. Save each one with
a modified filename so that the original cell images remain unchanged.
2. Open the original image in Paint Shop Pro, if it isn™t already open.
For example, open the large image you originally sliced in Step 1.
3. Launch the Image Slicer and load your earlier settings.
Load the settings you saved in Step 1 to restore the slicing.
4. With the Arrow tool, click in the Image Slicer the cell you want to pro-
gram with a rollover.
5. Click the Rollover Creator button.
The Rollover Creator dialog box appears.
6. Click the Mouse Over check box.
7. Click the file folder icon on the same line as the Mouse Over check box.
The Select Rollover dialog box appears.
8. Choose the image file that you want to appear when the mouse passes
over and click Open.
For example, this file is the darkened version of the original file.
9. Click OK in the Select Rollover dialog box.
10. Repeat Steps 4 through 9 for each cell or hot spot.

Proceed to save your settings and create your Web files as we describe in ear-
lier sections in this chapter.

Advanced Undoing and Redoing
Have you made a mistake? Paint Shop Pro has a classic fix: Choose Edit➪
Undo. Or, press Ctrl+Z or click the Undo button. Each time, you back up a
step and undo the preceding action. If you accidentally undo too far, you can
redo the step with Edit➪Redo. (Or, because Paint Shop Pro never gives you
just one way to do something when several will do, you can also press
Ctrl+Alt+Z or click the Redo button on the toolbar.)

What if you make lots of mistakes? Or, what if you realize that you made one
mistake a while back, but have done several things correctly since then? If
you undo all the way back to the point where you made your mistakes, you
also undo the valid changes you have made since your mistake.

Fortunately, Paint Shop Pro 9 adds a command history to allow you to see
more precisely what commands you™re undoing and redoing. Choose View➪
Palettes➪History (or press F3) and the History palette appears. It provides
enough command of history to finally understand the Peloponnesian War.

Okay, so nobody really understands (or even correctly spells) the
Peloponnesian War, but you can undo and redo your Paint Shop Pro com-
mands with more insight now. Most (but not all) commands are undoable.
Only undoable commands are normally shown on the History palette. To
see even the ones you can™t undo, click the Show Non-Undoable Commands
button, second from last at the top of the History palette.

Previous commands are marked with an eyeball to indicate that their effect is
currently visible. Click any eyeball to undo a step; it gets crossed out. Click
that same eyeball to redo that step. In this way, you can undo a single mis-
take without annihilating everything you have added since your mistake.

To prepare to undo several steps, Ctrl+click on multiple steps you want to
undo. Click the Undo Selected button at the top of the History palette and
your highlighted steps are undone.

To undo everything back to a specific step, click on that step. Then click the
Undo to Here button at the top of the palette.

Undone steps are now marked with a crossed-out eyeball to indicate that
their effect is no longer visible. The History palette Redo buttons (Redo
Selected and Redo to Here) are the complements to the Undo buttons. Select
the step or steps you want redone and click the Redo Selected button. Or,
click one of the X™d-out steps and click Redo to Here. If you™re permanently
done with undone commands, you “clear” them from History. Click the Clear
Selectively Undone Commands button, third from the right at the top of the
History palette.

Using Scripts to Automate
Repetitive Tasks
William works as a webmaster for an online shop. Three times a year, new
products get released and he has to scan in and upload 350 pictures. Of
course, the scanned images all have to be the same size, and they all have to
have their colors adjusted so that they™re clear and vibrant images, and they
have to have a black border around their edges.

Doing that by hand 350 times would drive William stark-raving bonkers.
Fortunately, Paint Shop Pro 8 debuted a fantastic new scripting feature,
which allowed William to save that repetitive series of commands as a single
script. Now, whenever William scans in an image, he clicks one button ” and
the script adjusts the image™s colors, resizes it, and adds a black border in
one go.

The Paint Shop Pro scripting features record a series of commands and then
replay those commands as you entered them, which saves you valuable time.
If you have ever used macros in Word or Excel, you should be familiar with
this concept.



Recording a script
Here™s how you record an item:

1. If you don™t see the Script toolbar, as shown in Figure 18-15, choose
View➪Toolbars➪Script.
2. Click the Start Script Recording button.


Cancel Script Recording

Start Script Recording

3. Perform the sequence of actions you want recorded, just as you would
normally do in Paint Shop Pro.
Keep in mind that the settings for the tools you use are saved within the
script; for example, if you paint a circle with a 50 percent opacity and 25-
pixel brush, that script is always drawn with a 50 percent opacity and
25-pixel brush, regardless of what the Brush tool may be set to.
4. If you need to pause recording in the middle to do something that you
don™t want replayed later, click the Pause Script Recording button.
Click it again to continue the recording where you left off.
5. When you™re done, click the Save Script Recording button and enter a
name, and then click OK. Or, if you have done something wrong and
you don™t want to save it, click the Cancel Script Recording button.

You have three options when you™re saving:

Click the Save Materials check box. This option ensures that the script
draws with the material (the color, gradient, or pattern) that was used
when you recorded the script, thus ensuring that a red line is always a
red line; unchecking this option causes this script to draw with what-
ever materials are selected when you run it.
Click the Save Dialog Positions check box. Choosing this option is a
strange business. Normally, Paint Shop Pro doesn™t pay attention to
where you click ” it pays attention to what you did. Put another way, if
you record an application of the Topography Artistic effect (as shown in
Chapter 13), the script isn™t paying attention to where you moved the
mouse or when you clicked OK ” it™s paying attention to the settings
that were used when the topographical effect was applied.
This capability is A Good Thing. For one thing, it allows Paint Shop Pro
to zip through the scripts; it doesn™t have to wait two seconds to move
the mouse to the OK button, like you did.
If, however, you had a script that needed to place a click at some posi-
tion in a certain dialog box, you could check this box and ensure those
dialog boxes are in the same places. Realistically, though, you can proba-
bly ignore this part.
Click the Remove Undone Commands check box. We hope that you did
everything perfectly when you recorded your script. If you made a mis-
take, though, all is not lost! You can undo during a script recording. If the
Remove Undone Commands option is checked, those commands aren™t
carried out in the final script. (Why you would want to uncheck it is a
complete mystery, but, hey ” that™s a question that only Jasc can
answer.)
You can also, if you™re so inclined, select the Description box and enter
the author, copyright, and description of your script. This is handy if
you expect to pass it on.

Scripts are saved by default in the My Documents/My PSP Files/
Restricted-Scripts folder. You can send them to other users, who
can put them in their folders and run them as though they had been
recorded on their own PCs.



Running a script
Running Paint Shop Pro scripts is much simpler than recording them. Follow
these steps:

1. Click the arrow on the drop-down list on the Script toolbar, as shown
in Figure 18-16.
By default, you™re shown the scripts stored in the Scripts-Restricted cat-
egory, but you can click other script folders, like Artistic and Photo, to
see what other exciting scripts Paint Shop Pro has given you for free.
Note that some scripts are already there. Paint Shop Pro comes bundled
with several scripts to automate common tasks, like creating thumb-
nails, and also gives you some artistic transformation scripts that can
turn a photograph into, for example, a watercolor painting. Feel free to
experiment.
2. Click the Run Selected Script button.
Certain advanced scripts may have dialog boxes that ask for user input,
but most just zip through and go about their business in no time.
