PaintShop Professionals Spotlight: Meet Carole Asselin, Digital Scrapbooker

Carole has been using PaintShop Pro for all of her graphics needs since version 7. She was immediately intrigued by the software and its capabilities and wanted to utilize it to create elements and layouts from scratch. Specifically, she uses PaintShop Pro personally to enhance old photos, create icons, and crop and edit images for her website. Her favorite activity is digital scrapbooking which she has blossomed into a successful teaching venture. She has developed an extensive expertise and enjoys sharing her knowledge with the digital scrapbooking community.

When asked what Carole’s favorite feature in PaintShop Pro is, without missing a beat, she shared her love for scripting as it is both powerful and flexible and excellent for speeding up repetitive tasks.

    I’ve been following Carole’s scrapbooking site for a while now. Her tutorials are wonderful. Carole explains everything in detail and she sounds like she’s talking directly to you. I’ve learned more from her than I can say.
