I collect books of Charles Schulz's Peanuts, and have a respected guide to those books at AAUGH.com/guide/
And if someone sent you a pointer to an online examples of goofy things one can do with Amazon.com's image engine, yes, that was mine as well. (And if you haven't seen it, head over to http://www.gertler.com/nat/abusedimages.html )

The text is easy to read, has good illustrations and tutorials, a sense of humor, and best of all, it's written in a lean, no nonsense style that lets me get right down to the business of creating.
IMHO, you only need one book to learn the basics *and* the exciting new features of this great program--The Complete Idiot's Guide to Paint Shop Pro 7 is a smart, economical tool for getting the most out of one of the world's best graphics programs:)
a really good book to buy if you are buying Paint Shop Pro 7 for the very first time and have never used any of the previous versions of Paint Shop Pro.
This book is well written and it easily explains all of the applications it outlines.
However, I have been using Paint Shop Pro version 5 for about three years now and there was nothing in this book that I didn't already know.
The best way to find new tips and tricks that Paint Shop Pro 7 has is to read online tutorials and find sites set up for such instructions.
As my review title says, it's a "Good Book but only covers the basics"!
Since using PSP is such a challenge, I thought getting a book on it would help and bought this one based on the online recommendations. I haven't found this book much help.
Simple things that are easy to do in other drawing programs, can take hours to figure out in PSP and often I give up in frustration. This is compounded by the way I use PSP, occasionally and infrequently. In between times, I forget anything I laboriously managed to learn.
This book hasn't been much help for the way I use PSP.
MAYBE if I read it all the way through, I could get more out of it. However, the way I want to use the book is to look up something in my own vocabulary like "apply a transparent color" and find all the steps needed to accomplish the task. That doesn't work. The book assumes I already know the PSP vocabulary or know/remember some tool/procedure explained in other chapters.
The humor is not a plus because after the double dose of frustration (frustration with using PSP and frustration at getting help from the book), I am not especially receptive to the humor.
