So I found a few new to me things and did my usual thing but then!!!!

My paint program has decided to go severely wonky when I want to cut and paste the pictures I use in the uploads. It's driving me nuts cause I cannot figure it out. Sometimes it's fine and does what I want but mostly it won't. Do I have to un-install it and then re-install it?  :(

Ummm what does it do exactly? Can you just save them to a folder and then get them from there? I haven't had my full dose of coffee yet so forgive me if I am misunderstanding the obvious.

It won't let me *cut* the picture the size I want. Usually you can just use the cutting tool and draw over the picture to get the size correctly but mine cuts off at weird places. I think I may try my previous version and see if that one works.

The wonkiness has returned.  :confused22: I cannot get the cut tool to cut the size I want for my upload pictures.

Is there anyone who can :police: ?  These are 512 X 512 images but I usually cut a rectangle size and it just won't let me. I am using PaintShopPro-2018.

There is also an image cropping tool as well. Could you try that instead?

I have found the solution. I had to go to their discussion section and read about a gazillion topic titles. As for that *crop tool*, I am totally not able to understand their instructions. I think that one of Microsoft's updates for Windows 10 may have had something to do with my problem. There were pages devoted to that topic.

Well forget that previous post, the wonkiness just kept coming back. I was so angry I uninstalled the program and then after a restart I re-installed it.  Guess what? Yep, that pesky wonkiness is still there so I now think that a windows update has messed with my paint program.

The good news is I went to their support page, didn't find a solution.....:slapLaugh: then I went to the tutorial section and lo and behold, I found the solution. :penguin03:

The bad news is that the shape selection tool simply doesn't work at all anymore, which means the *cut and paste* also doesn't work. Now I just use the *move* tool and then use the arrows on the keyboard to place sections to make a pattern. I'm :blush: to admit that doing it this new way is actually a big improvement.

UGH there was a recent windows 10 update that, along with a common AMD driver, that is messing with people's games as well, it is causing crashes and stuff, due to running out of memory,  It is making windows 10 (the update) not release standby memory properly so the game is running out of memory, and the AMD driver is doing the same, on other peoples computers. I suspect that the later Nvidia cards having a problem is caused by the same thing, but haven't been able to prove that yet.  I figured out a solution to those people who are having problems getting the 4 gb patch read by their computers, and Jessa figured out the standby memory problem.  I suspect the two issues are interrelated actually.

 

I wonder if it was the same update that messed with Corel?

 

Sorry I haven't been back btw, as we are in the middle of buying a house, and trying to get moved before the grandbaby is born. The good news is they accepted my offer, so let's keep fingers crossed the inspection goes off without a hitch, and we are able to sign papers and get in before the baby arrives! The baby will be here around the 1st of June, and the house won't be empty til May 25th!

Oh congrats on buying a house, it's a wonderful feeling. I remember it took me a few weeks of actually living in our house before it really hit me, that the house was ours! 21 years later I still love my little house.

 

Now that I know this new way of making patterns, I can make quite a few in a day if I stick to it. Today wasn't so productive because I had to get 3 fillings at the dentist.

I do have a lot of clothings that I am also working on. I have to switch back and forth between the clothings and making patterns so I don't get bored or lose interest. This new way of making patterns is so much faster.

Michael wants me to download Sims3 and make him some stuff. He's been playing Sims3 for a couple of weeks now. Yeah, I need to learn how to make things for Sims3 because I just don't have enough projects on the go as it is.  :ROLF:

 

OH!! I also figured out the correct sizes of the pictures I usually take for my uploads. Solved my own problems after adjusting and readjusting the sizes like a gazillion times.
