ABC PSP - Tutorial 11
Assembling Sideborder Stats
Skill Level: Absolute Beginner using PSP
This tutorial is my own creation, any resemblance to another tutorial is purely coincidental
This is part 11 of a series of tutorials for the absolute beginner with PSP.
It is recommended that you complete the tutorials in numerical sequence, as each
new one will build on the knowledge gained by the previous tutorials.
To make stationery for Outlook Express, you need a html file (called script) and need to adjust this file.
Unfortunately I can't offer any help for OE stationery.
There are groups for sharing scripts and there are also yahoo groups to learn how to adjust the scripts and get the stationery to work in Outlook Express.
If you are interested in learning how to do OE stationery, I can highly recommend joining this group:
To make stationery for Incredimail, you need the program called Letter Creator.
Letter Creator comes together with a download of the Incredimail program.
You are given a brief free trial for Letter Creator. If you want to use it regularly, you will have to buy the program.
Letter Creator from Incredimail, available
An image you created and saved as either jpeg or gif.
Take note where you saved it. It should be the width of your computer resolution, e.g. 1024, 1280 or may be 1600
1) Open Letter Creator
Image = Look for the background image you created
Tile = Checked

Sample = Click on background to select dominant color which will contrast well with your font color
Clear = Delete the chosen image
(if you want to choose another image)

Adjust and make sure it contrasts well with the background in order to be text friendly

I do not fill in this part by personal choice as I have turned this effect off in Incredimail in order to let the PC run more smoothly
Of course you are free to choose the effects you like
