PSP Tutorial | How to use AMP Fontviewer

PSP Tutorial | How to use AMP Fontviewer

Aug 2, 2017

Hurray! this is my very first tutorial for this website and I’m SO excited about it! So here goes nothing…

Today I will be teaching you about the benefits of using a font viewer

When using Paint Shop Pro, you might find that the software has very little choices in fonts. Back in the old days (about 15 years ago or so), one would simply install new fonts in the windows font directory. Which is, of course, still an option but I would strongly advice against it. Installing hundreds, maybe thousands of fonts will significantly slow down your computer. All these fonts will start up when you start up your computer, and they will run in the background, invisible to you.

Now, there is a simple solution for this, and I’m going to explain the how and what behind it.

First of all, downloadand install a fontviewer. I guess any fontviewer will do, but for this tutorial I will use AMP Fontviewer,
which you can download here.
As far as downloading and installing software goes, I trust that you are savvy enough to do so.

The next step is to download and install winrar, so you can unpack your font files.
You can download Winrar here.

Step three is to download some fonts, which you can do over here, just choose a couple of fonts that you really like. Once you get the hang of this you can always download and add new fonts:
Dafont

For me personally, I like to work with folders on my desktop, because they are easy to find when you need them. So create a new folder on your desktop and call it Paint Shop Pro (or another name that you can easily recognize it by). Open this folder and then create another new folder in it called Fonts.

It always seems messy to me to have both the zipfiles and font files in the same folder, zo I always create another new folder within the Fonts folder and call it Zip Files. That is where I download the files downloaded from Dafont to.
Once you have downloaded a couple of fonts into your Zip files folder and unpack them there, by right clicking them and choose: “unpack in Zip Files”

The next thing you need to do is copy the fontfiles to your fonts folder. A font has always the .ttf or .otf extension. In windows we work with the .ttf extension. (I believe that .otf is for Apple users, not sure on that one). Extract a fontzip that you just downloaded. If you have installed winrar you can do so by right clicking the zipfile and choose unpack. It is really easy to do.

Now you open the folder that you have just extracted, locate the .ttf file, copy it and paste it in the font folder. Repeat this for every font you have downloaded, or will download.

Now, when you want to use the fonts in Paint Shop Pro, just open AMP. Locate the fonts folder on the “not installed fonts” tab, click the font you want to use and that is it. Once AMP is activated and the font you want to use is highlighted, you can use it in PSP.

David Draiman calling out fan during concert, right or wrong?

David Draiman calling out fan during concert, right or wrong?

Aug 1, 2017

In the youtube clip below you can see David Draiman losing his shit over a fan that is texting -from what I understand- all throughout the concert.
I saw in another youtube that he apologized to the person, because apparently, she decided to leave her 12 (or was it 14?) year old daughter home alone to go the the Disturbed concert, during a hailstorm…

David shouldn’t have apologized. Period. He was right the first time.
Because what freaking idiot in her right mind leaves a 12 year old girl home alone or without any reliable and trustworthy babysitter? Okay, I understand, at 12 years old you’re not a baby anymore, but you’re also not old enough to stay at home all by yourself.

So what she should’ve done was A: take the kid to the concert. or B: find a babysitter she could trust so the kid wasn’t home alone.
You’re not going to a concert and disrupt the whole shizzle, because you can’t leave your phone alone. The members of Disturbed put so many effort in what they do, not only for their own pleasure, but mostly for the fans and I can guarantee that giving your everything on the stage and having people glued to their phones all night is gonna annoy the crap out of them. And rightfully so.

Disturbed | The sound of Silence

Disturbed | The sound of Silence

Jul 26, 2017

This song is originally from Simon and Garfunkel of course. A few weeks back I was at work in the late shift, talking to a Polish co worker when this song came on the radio. He said that this is an AH-MA-ZING song and of course I wanted to contradict him, because normally I hate covers. I mean, take Westlife with Billy Joel’s Uptown Girl for example and I think I can rest my case. Nothing against Westlife because they have some pretty decent songs, but covers, amirite?

Until a few days ago when I thought: oh, I might as well check out that song, it probably won’t hurt… And, oh boy, it didn’t hurt indeed… I immediately fell in love with David Draiman and his voice. Even started liking his original work (the Disturbed music) and that normally so isn’t my shizzle… Just wow!

So I thought: let me dedicate an entire blogpost to this wonderful piece of art, that is even better than the original. And now I’m going to have an icecream.

Turning the blog from Dutch to English

Turning the blog from Dutch to English

Jul 26, 2017

Not a mighty big job, but a job nonetheless. Guess I won’t be following the dutch course for writing tutorials after all after some sort of pathetich disagreement on the dutch PSP forum. Someone getting their knickers in a twist over absolutely nothing, sheesh.

Anyway, this does mean that I will be making this blog from now on in English and that I’ll be writing my own Paint Shop Pro tutorials. Might take a while, but I’ll get there eventually.

For now just a little Mark eye candy before we go to bed. Enjoy!
