PSP8 newbie - help with grids

Community Forums/Developer Stations/PSP8 newbie - help with grids

I am trying to hand draw sprites in PSP 8. In MS Paint, you can enlarge the image to like 400% and then show the grid so you can draw 1 pixel at a time. Does anyone know if PSP 8 has a similar feature and how to access it? Thanks.

Well, I have PSP 5 and just select menu option View/Grid. :)

:-) I tried that first. While it does bring up a grid. It is not the same as the per pixle grid used in MS Paint. The grid that PSP 8 shows seem more suited to lining up images than drawing 1 pixel at a time. Thanks though.

You just need to zoom in enough so the grid become per-pixel. That does annoy me a bit, too, but I don't know of a way to get the grid to always be per-pixel.

That works! Yeah that is annoying. :-) Thanks.

PSP8 is overkill for sprites. :)

Try GraphicsGale.

Wow! GraphicsGale rocks. This is going to make things a lot easier. :-) Thank for the info.
