Simply place the script in your MyPSP>ScriptsRestricted folder and Unleash the Power of the (Almost) Ultimate PSP Script ever! Note: See post #17 for a mini tutorial.
Note: I need to give a huge thanks to Tracey (Haley64 at DST) for all her help. Not only did she fix the script for PSP9 users (and tell me I had a hiccup in the first version), it was also her tip about keeping the transparency of an template layer that made this script the (almost) ultimate psp script ever. Thank you so much Tracey, you rock!:)
After you download the script, place it in your MyDocuments>MyPSP>ScriptsRestricted file. It should then be available under your scripts toolbar.
Using the script:
Let’s pretend you have a template with a singe spot for a photo. First you would open both your template and the photo in PSP. Copy the photo to your clipboard (cntl+c) then paste it (cntl+v) into the template ABOVE where the photo needs to go.
At this point you will be able to move, resize, etc. the photo all you want to make sure it’s positioned exactly how you need it to be. With the PHOTO layer still highlighted, run the script. In just a few seconds your photo should be cropped exactly to the template shape below. Repeat as needed.
This script will also work for papers and other elements. The best part is that it works with many template layers that have a transparency effect. For example, several of Katie Pertiet’s templates have layers that look like brush strokes. This script will fit the photo/paper into that layer and preserves the brush-like appearance.
Sometimes I can get it to work with masks or “mats.” It depends on if, and what kind, of layer style the designer has added to the PSD file. That’s why the script is “almost” the ultimate because it doesn’t work on everything. I suggest you experiment and see how it works with different elements you have in your stash. Hopefully it will be an asset to your scrapping arsenal. 🙂
I’ve mapped the script to my keyboard so that I only have to hit cntl+3 to run the script. In PSPX you’ll need to go View>Customize>Scripts . Select the script name and an Icon, then click on the Keyboard tab. Choose Bound Scripts from the dropdown menu. Click on the name of the script, hit the key(s) you want to map it to and click “assign.” You should be good to go!
