Learning to use Paint Shop Pro is easy - you just need the right basic lessons, then apply some of your wonderful imagination and finally just enjoy using the great program. We have several hundred tutorials which are listed in various ways for your ease of navigation - to help you find just the right tutorial to suit.

Note regarding PSP X through PSPP XII (version 12):
As for now, our tutorials are written through version 9. However, our tutorials are able to be done in all current versions. So, please look at our tutorials for PSP 8 and later, and for PSP 9 and later these tutorials more and more often include instructions for recent versions as well. If you're a beginner to PSP, you can also use the Beginners' Class Tutorials for PSP 8, and the tutorials written for beginners on the PSP 8 and PSP 9 pages since the versions are all very much alike. Apart from that, you can get information and help on Current Versions in our forums.

If you have any queries about any of our tutorials, please contact the Tutorials Coordinator by email. Also, don't hesitate to ask your questions in our forums where there are many talented members providing great help and information.
