    Ok, I feel stupid asking this, but it has been driving me crazy. I want to add lines to an image, but they only ones I can add is with using the Blinds button, and it has a fading color to it. Don't want that. Does anyone know another way to do it?

    Do you mean like scan lines?

    The best way to do it is in Photoshop, but in PSP...

    Draw 1 pixel lines with the square tool and color them. then copy and paste 2 different colored lines next to eachother until you have it as large as you want. After that, reduce the transparency on the lines

    Okay spdrcr,

    Not sure what you mean by fading with the blinds. If you lessened the Opacity you should be able to control that. Either way I just wrote up another way of doing things that will give you more control or the lines. So here it is:


    1.Start with an new flat white image.
    2.Open the Blinds window an adjust to Width 1, Opacity 100 and color basic blue.
    3.Make that basic white is your secondary color.
    4.Hit the copy button.
    5.Then follow the Edit/Paste/ and choose 'As Transparent Selection'.
    6.Left click in the image to release it an hit copy and then paste on you top menu.
    7.You should now have blue lines with a transparent background.
    8.Open the image you want to add lines to.
    9.Paste the blue lines over the image .
    10.Now use your selection tool to drop it by right clicking the image.
    11.Choose the basic blue of the lines as your second color.
    12.Hit the copy button to copy your image.
    13.Then follow the Edit/Paste/ and choose 'As Transparent Selection'.
    14.Left click in the image to release it an hit copy and then paste on you top menu.
    15.Your new image should have transparent lines through it.
    16.Go back to your old image and hit undo till you get back to the original.
    17.Then follow the Edit/Paste/ and choose 'As New Selection' to paste the second image into the original.

    Once you have it centered then your on your own, but don't drop it just yet!
    Try different things like decolorize, decontrast or use the gamma correction tool to darken the lines to what your looking for.

    Certianly hope this isn't for nothing.
