I just want to thank all of you for the great tubes. If it wasnt for you guy this page wouldnt be here...

I would like to give the credit to Renald Levesque the man who built this page and kept it up for all of the tube people on the net. I am sorry he has to give it up but very thankful to him for allowing me to keep it alive. Thank You.

Cherowolf is unable to keep up with this page. I am Honored that she passed the torch to me. Thank you I will do my best to keep this up and running its a great site.....

For additions or deletions, please e-mail:

Create your own Picture Tubes
A tube is nothing more than an image or a group of images, arranged in a grid on a single transparent layer.
 
Preparation:
Open an image with a transparent background. Turn the grid on (View menu) and modify the grid parameters to get the number of squares you will require to house the images you want to put in your tube. Copy/paste your images, each in its own square. 
On the right, you can observe a section of the 3D Rainbow tube that comes with
version 7. 

A tube must have no more than one layer and that layer cannot be called "Background". If you want to cut the background out of an existing image, to turn it into a tube, you must "Promote to Layer", otherwise PSP will voice its displeasure when you attempt to export your tube.

Once your layout is complete, exporting your tube is done the same way in versions 5, 6 
and 7, by going to the menu:
File|Export|Picture Tubes

In the dialog box, you must the number of cells across and cells down in your layout, and a name for your tube.

The other parameters are not important as they can be modified at the time you use the tube.

In versions 5 and 6, the tubes are saved in a default folder. It is not possible to put them anywhere else if you want your "Picture Tube" tool to be able to find them.
 


 
In version 7, if you want to save your tube in a different folder, you can do it by going to the menu:
File|Preferences|Files Locations and selecting the Tubes tab
This operation has to be carried out before exporting your tube. 

If you have accumulated a large number of tubes, this is where you will do your management work. 

On the other hand, if your tubes are not in the default folder, you will have to come here and enable the path to the tube you wish to use, if you want to your "Picture Tube" tool to be able to find it.
 

 

How to use them
 
To paint with picture tubes, click on the Picture tubes tool  to make it active.. 

In version 5, the Options palette will give you a list of the available tubes. 

In version 6, the Options palette will give you a similar list and also display a thumbnail of the last tube that was used.

In version 7, (right). you will select your tubes in a mini browser that you open with the expansion bar next to the thumbnail on the Options palette. Like in version 6, the thumbnail on your Options palette shows the last tube that was used. 

 

Once you have selected your tube, there are 2 ways to paint with it.

Dragging your mouse. The top part of the image on the left was painted this way, using the 3D Rainbow tube that comes with version 7.

Rubber stamping with multiple mouse clicks. Using the same tube a number of 3D balls were clicked in, as shown in the lower part of the image.

Avoid compatibility problems  between different PSP tubes versions.

For a number of reasons, Pictures Tubes are not compatible from one version to the next. If you create your own tubes, this will not be a problem, because your tubes will be exported in the appropriate version. On the other hand, if you wish to recover the tubes you have been collecting while using previous versions, you will need to use the conversion utility. You will find it as a stand alone program in the folder where you installed Paint Shop Pro.
If you get Picture tubes from other people on the web, you will soon realize that the version in which they were created is very rarely mentioned. In such cases, it is nice to know that a Picture can be opened in PSP just like any other image. Once open, all you  need is to export it using File|Export|Picture Tubes.
