Rolled Paper Preview Script

This script is an upgrade of my 4 paper preview script. Unlike other scripts, this script requires no additional filters or plug-ins. It will make any size preview from 10 pixels x 10 pixels to 3600 x 3600 (or larger). Any resolution is possible (72dpi, 100 dpi, 200 dpi, 300 dpi), so you can use this script for both tagger-size and full-size kits. In addition, you can easily change the number of papers in the preview by editing one variable. To change the number of papers, open up the script in the editor, and count down 12 lines from the top. You should see the following line:

n = 5 # Quantity of Papers. Change this numeral to the number of your papers. Default is 5.

Change the number 5 after the equal sign to any number you like. For example, n = 8 will make a preview for 8 papers. Otherwise, all you have to do is have open your papers in Paint Shop Pro. Right now, the script only makes a single row of papers. I may eventually edit it to make two rows of papers. However, I leave everything in layers so you can easily add a second row yourself by pasting papers as layers and moving them around.

If my instructions don't make any sense, I have included individual files that will make 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, and 10 rolls and add your papers. Please leave a comment if you get this script to work in a different version of PSP.

EDIT: Version 2.0 of this script is now available.
