  • Thanks liubo I follow Synthetik since day one ... glad you are in the same page :)

  • Here are links to 2 articles on how to organize presets. the first discusses the organization of the Preset folder. The second discusses how to make custom favorites categories.

  • depends on the preset. try putting them in the appropriate folder and then a corresponding subfolder so that they are at the same level as the existing presets. e.g. a vectorizer preset might go into

    Vectorizer>Vector Processing>CoolPresets

    also, hi ed :)

  • I read instructions but still need help. I downloaded the Cool presets, if I place them on Favorites do not show. Where should I place them ? please... Thank you.

  • I would like to know about both. Where should I start the thread?

  • Are you looking for manual paint stippling, or something that generates a completed stippled canvas kind of effect? You should open a discussion thread with your answer.

Watercolor like Paint Synth presets

In a discussion here: https://studioartist.ning.com/forum/topics/can-we-have-watercolor-text-in-bitmap-mode The idea of applying a watercolor like stroke effect over a text piece was brought up. I am sure there are ways to fill text shapes with a wet watercolor effect - however - this actually caught my attention for a different reason.  I have in the past poked around in the SA feature: Bezier Draw. menu: Operation/Bezier/Bezier Draw.
