Scroll down for some free Valentine's Day Photo-Paint image spray lists for you to download. These sprays can be used in Photo-Paint 7 and up (including Photo-Paint 8 for Macintosh) and are also available as tubes for Paint Shop Pro and objects for PhotoImpact. If you find these files useful, I would appreciate a link back to this site [http://graphicssoft.about.com/]. The links below will take you to more free spray lists. Enjoy!

Zip File Help:
To extract the files you will need an unzipping tool such as Winzip, or Drag & Zip. Consult your software help file for specific instructions on unzipping files. Also see What's the Best Zip/Unzip Tool? and Unzipping Files from About.com's Shareware/Freeware Guide.
Loading the image sprays into Photo-Paint:
Unzip the files to the folder of your choice. I prefer to store my spray lists in X:\Corel\GraphicsX\Photopnt\ImgLists, but you can use any folder. In Photo-Paint, select the Image Sprayer tool, then click the Load Image Spray List button on the property bar. Navigate to the folder where you unzipped the files and open the spray list you wish to use.
Note for Macintosh Users:
If you set the .cpt extension in the File Exchange control panel to Mac Corel Photo-Paint document codes (CPT8/Cpnt), the image list files will emerge from the zips with the proper icon. Just drop them in the Image Lists folder, and they are ready to use. If the File Exchange is not defined, they will need to be opened and saved in Photo-Paint, or for those who know how, have their type/creator codes set to CPT8/Cpnt, which is what the act of saving does. [Thanks to Jerry Walsh for these instructions for Macintosh users.]
Black backgrounds in Photo-Paint 7:
If you download image lists to PP 7.0 and they come out with black backgrounds, heres what you can try. BTW, I dont think that this happens due to any defect in making the original image list. Its more likely a yet undiscovered setting in PP 7.0:
- Load the defective image list into the sprayer tool.
- Click on the arrow and then on Edit current image list The list will open as a window.
- Go to Tools/ Roll-up Groups/ Objects/Channels. Click on Channels opening the Channels window.
- In that window, click on gray eye by current mask. The background should change, in the image list window, from black to dark red.
- Go to the row of icons on the bottom of the Channels window and click on the icon to the left, (channel to mask) The objects in the list window should aquire masks.
- Close the image window but when doing so, save changes.
- Reopen the image sprayer tool window and load in any other image list.
- Then reload the image list you just repaired and it should now function.
