The Zero to Hero series of tutorial learning books are available at Amazon.com. When I purchased my upgrade from Paintshop Pro 5, Paintshop Pro 8 was different enough that I decided it would be quicker to learn from a book rather than try to figure it out on my own.
Paint Shop Pro is a photo editing and web graphics-creating software package. You can do amazing things with it, and the learning curve isn’t TOO steep. Especially if you have a tool like this book, Paint Shop Pro 8, Zero to Hero. The name Zero to Hero means that you can go from knowing nothing to mastering the program by using this easy-to-follow book. The book uses simple language and hundreds of screen shots to make it easy. All you need is time!
One of the very simplest things you can do with Paint Shop Pro is to crop a picture so that it is shown to best advantage as I have done in my avatar of the frangipani flower. But that is certainly child’s play compared to the cool things that can be done.
If I EVER retire from my job, I plan to get into playing with this program a lot more as a hobby. For now, I use it mainly to edit my digital photos.
If there is a software program you need to learn quickly, I recommend that you search to see whether Zero to Hero has a book for you on that subject.
