Add papers :

importGo to the window menu and then to the Paper panels and paper libraries.

Display panel and then go to the right side menu and import legacy paper library


The format works with PC and MAC


Install folder : glassNo particular install folder is required so you can place the files anywhere and browse for them. A central folder location would probably be best or perhaps the cloud.


Surface effect : They can be blurred and they can be added as surface effects. Great designs can be created just by changing the color of the lights and the angle of the lights in the apply surface effect dialog. They can also be used in many other effects and combined with the effect via selections if you cannot use them directly and as such can be used to create amazing visual effects in seconds and the results can be exported to use in other applications that do not have so many wonderful (and it has to be said, esoteric effects) settings


Format : They were created a while ago so now the DPI might not be the greatest for all kinds of design work if you require a large DPI (say documents 4000 x 4000. You can scale them and smooth to a great degree and still create truly wow image and texture effects as well as distortions with them. The original format was not cross platform so both platform sets are included. The latest versions of the presets are now cross platform but the same approach is there and both can be used with the latest version. All the textures in this collection are stored in native PAP file format. You can use the paper mover to move the tiles from one PAP library to another. Definitely recommend making a backup of key PAP libraries.


How can I use them with the glass distortion : glassThey are great for glass and metallic effects.


Use in the glass distortion effect (found in effects > focus category). See image on the right for the effect of the glass distortion


Modify the softness, variance, direction, and glass mode. Fade / re-apply and more. All the PAP files supplied from can be used with the glass distortion effect.


Tiles : Use the resources as a source for tile 'original luminance' option in distortion / surface methods in Painter. Use as a source for mosaics or brush strokes or clone sources. Or use them via tiles as a source for clone color or for impasto brush effects. They can also be easily added to the tiles libraries. Just create a file to the original proportions of the texture and then use the express effect or other command and apply and save the preset or use the define tile in the tile panel.


How to use them with the apply screen effect : 'Apply Screen' uses the resources to excellent effect. Modify the various thresholds and color settings to create a wide range of weird and wonderful flat color screens (great for web design) or blur or use the depth of field filter afterwards. The 'apply screen' can be used to create a variety of different different screens, even by simply modifying the scaling or contrast of the resources


How to use them with the express effect : You can use the papers in 'express effect' command to create stunning black and white imagery. After applying the surface and express effect, use a blur and even use the excellent (if not slightly slower) depth of field filter. Use a color fill to add some color or the color effects. They can be used for superb black and white imagery in 'express'.


How to use them with the distress command : 'Distress' effect uses the supplied artworks and offers a wide selection of edge, edge amount, smoothing, variance and threshold settings to create stunning texture infused image effects. Superb for stunning black and white images and screened effects.


How to use with them with the adjust dye concentration effect :blurred 'Adjust dye concentration' effect uses the resources with different max and min. threshold settings to add interesting color effects. Again, the effect also comes into its own when combining different effects such as blurring the result and then reapplying the dye concentrations with different resources and scaling


How to use with floaters : They can also be used in a number of the floater effects such as glass distortion or the burn effect. Use the grains in the burn dynamic floater to create unusual torn / burnt edges. Use them via clone and clone source in dynamic floater 'liquid metal' (as well as glass distortion floater to layers and text..) to create really interesting floater imagery.


How to use applied surface effect with the resources : Effects > 'Applied Surface' and subtle shifts or different color combos and shine settings can be used to create a wide variety of weird paths, wobbly, blobbed, metallic and can be used to generate 1000s of different wonderful color bump surfaces.


How to use them with Pop art effect : They can be used in the pop art fills by saving the artwork as a tile and then using the original luminance settings


How to use them with the powerful brushes : You can use them with the paper setting with many different brushes


How to use them with the motion blur filter : The motion blur and soften and super soften cannot use the preset information but you can always simply use the selection commands with the preset data and then apply a smooth or blur to the result.


How to turn them into a shape layer : Use them to create a selection and then 'convert to shape' to create a new vector shape from the supplied seamless tile. The vector shape then can be transformed and distorted or used as a floater (convert to a floater). Apply brush strokes to shape/floater or effects or use the shape/floater as a color effect. Export the shape layer to AI format and others


How to use them to create wonderful edge effects : You can create wonderful edges using the resources by applying the texture to a rectangular block of white on black or vica versa. They can be used with many of the commands to create different edge effects such as using the glass distortion or apply surface effect command
