Simple Background Changes (Continued)
Step 3: Now, shift your attention to the Materials palette. Click on the Foreground Color.
This will bring up the Material Properties window where you can choose a new color, gradient or pattern.
If you just want a new color, you can select it here. However, for this example, we'll go a little further and use one of the preloaded patterns that comes with Paint Shop Pro. So, click on the Pattern tab.
Once on the Pattern tab, click on the default pattern and a window containing other preloaded pattern choices will become visible. Scroll through and select the one you like. Here, I'll pick the Clouds pattern.
When finished, click OK and you'll be returned to the Paint Shop Pro main interface. Note that your photo will not have changed yet. However, the new pattern should be visible in the Materials palette.
