Abstract

You’ve already learned that Paint Shop Pro is a capable vector graphics program, as well as a paint and photo editor. This sets it apart from most consumer computer graphics software on the market today and makes it possible for users to create high-quality, scalable computer illustrations that can be used in a variety of ways. In this chapter we’ll cover the following topics:
  • Combining vector shapes with text by creating a vector logo

  • Using vectors to create and print business cards

  • Printing multiple images using the Print Layout utility and templates

  • Exporting vector graphics as clip art to use with other applications

Vector graphics were the first type of computer graphics to be widely used by graphic artists and are still the tool of choice for most. Most of the nonphotographic images you see in magazines, newspapers, and books began life as vector illustrations. Although Paint Shop Pro isn’t quite as powerful as dedicated vector drawing programs such as Adobe Illustrator and CoreIDRAW, you can still create professional vector illustrations using it.
