Note from DaveRage - Due to the change in forum system from phpbb to vbulletin, none of the links in this thread are valid anymore, so I have unstickied it.

I thought it might not be such a bad idea to bundle excisting tutorials, that are most usefull, and put them all in one thread.


The Tutorial Central.
So, don't place new tutorials here, just the link to them and maybe a short decription on the subject.
Following is an indexlist, the topics will be found in the below posts.
thanks to ÄlveKatt for the tip on how to do this.
If there are broken links, please let me know.Thanks

For anyone ,wanting to make a step by step, or tutorial.
The link to this program leads to a freeware program that stores the picture in a predefined folder,without you having anything to do but pressing a hotkey(wich you can define by your own wishes)Very easy to use.
Now there's no reason not to make your own

It appears that there was at one time a collection of tutorials which had been created by members, but lost due to changes in Forums.


As a beginner with ArtRage, I would appreciate seeing these recreated and somehow added to the section Tutorials shown on the homepage, a location which is less likely to change such as the Forum or someone's personal website.

I'm interested in learning all there is to know about ArtRage including how to make the various strokes I've seen in some of these paintings as I'm not having much luck in trying to duplicate them. It's courtesy of individuals who worked with Paint Shop Pro who posted tutorials that I got to learn that program and I believe there are many who would be interested in them.

Is there any chance that these tutorials can be rebuilt?
