Paint Shop Pro In my humble opinion, Paint Shop Pro is one of best bargains available on internet. This inexpensive (less than $100) shareware program provides most of functions of far more expensive Adobe Photoshop with a better interface and quicker performance.
Paint Shop Pro version 7 has many different features with many different files. The locations of each of files are explained below. Note that Paint Shop Pro is almost unique in that you can define up to three different locations for each of these features. This is most cool.

Each time you clicked tube you would get a random butterfly image added to your graphic. You can create your own tubes and you can download tubes from internet.
