In Chapter Zero, you learned how to navigate the Paint Shop Pro workspace, open new and existing files, save files, and use basic features such as the Paint Brush tools and Materials palette. In this chapter, we show you how to use the Paint Shop Pro selection tools to create images exactly the way you imagine them. In addition, we show you how to create and add text in a variety of ways to your images. We cover the following topics:
  • Basic and complex shape selection

  • The Freehand Selection tool

  • The Magic Wand tool

  • Text effects

  • Vector, floating, and selection text
