Here's a way to reduce the appearance of artifacts in Paint Shop Pro 6: Simply click on the Image menu and choose Noise, Median Cut. Doing so will clear out some of the artifacts and smooth the overall appearance. Paint Shop Pro 7 includes a built-in Reduce JPG Artifacts filter, which offers much more control.
» When you're working with the Shapes tool, you can switch from one shape to another simply by employing the Shift key. For instance, if you're using the Ellipse shape, and you need to create a circle, there's no need to switch from the Ellipse shape to the Circle shape. With the Ellipse shape selected, simply hold down the Shift key to get a perfect circle. You can switch from the Rectangle to the Square in the same way. This technique comes in handy when you need to create various shapes in composite drawings.

You must have two .dll's in the window/system
folder. They are msvcrt10.dll and plugin.dll

» When you're downloading PSP tubes or background tiles,make new folders somewhere on your hard drive for the new ones you are downloading. If you save all of the tubes, frames, patterns, shapes, and so forth into the existing Paint Shop Pro folders, Paint Shop Pro 7 will become sluggish in creating a cache for them and will sometimes crash. You can create as many folders as you want to organize your PSP items. Then in Paint Shop Pro got to File/Preferences/File Locations and point PSP to the new folders You made.
