Before Dark backgrounds for Windows

These are Windows backgrounds that I converted across from the old Mac program BeforeDark. Some are in BMP format, others in GIF & will need to be converted to BMP. Most are to be used in the "tile" format.

Cheap Tricks for Paint Shop Pro

Rick Collins (aka Elwin Ransom aka Delevan) used to host a page called "Cheap Tricks for Paint Shop Pro" at . The pages were originally written for PSP 4.12, but most of the tips still work even with the most recent versions of PSP, after some tweaking. Unfortunately, Rick's pages disappeared sometime in 2001, and even the Internet Archive's backups of the site are extremely limited, with most of the actual tutorials either not saved or scattered across different saves. I've tried to contact Rick, with no success; as far as I can tell, he disappeared from the Internet in early 2003, leaving behind an incomplete skeleton of a revised website. In any case, here's the scans I've made of the tips from Rick's Cheap Tricks for PSP. Unfortunately the copies I have are all in black-and-white, but that's the best I can do. If you really need to see an example in color, try looking around the saved files for his old site on the Internet Archive. Here's the tutorials that are covered in this document: Cheap Fire; Cheap Mercury/Cheap Pewter; Cheap Ice; Cheap Chrome; Cheap Wood; Cheap Silver/Cheap Gold; Cheap Glow; Cheap Buttons and Bars.
