1/ Navigate To Paint Shop Pro’s Main Programme Files
First, open Paint Shop Pro: then open a Picture Frame onto Paint Shop Pro’s workspace.
To do this, from Windows Task Bar, click Start, then click My Computer. Now, locate and double-left-click the drive where Windows main files are located; for example,
Boot C. Then locate and double-left-click the Programme Files folder. Now, locate and double-left-click either Corel’s, or JASC’s folder, depending on your version of Paint Shop Pro, and locate your version’s Picture Frames - or Frames folder, (as illustrated below): then left-click to open the folder. Once inside your Picture Frames folder, scroll the Picture Frame files, and double-left-click your choice: your Picture Frame will then open onto Paint Shop Pro’s workspace.


Alternatively, locate and right-click your choice of Picture Frame, as illustrated below: and from the subsequent drop-down list, choose Open With. Then click your version of Paint Shop Pro.

How to Choose (or change) the opening Programme here

If you prefer, you can Copy and Paste - or simply drag and drop your Picture Frame/Picture Tube file onto Paint Shop Pro’s workspace.

Alternatively, you are welcome to download the Tear Denim Picture Frame I am working with
HereUnzip the file and open the Transparent Picture Frame onto Paint Shop Pro’s workspace.

Expand your Image’s workspace by double-left-clicking its top menu-bar. If you have a Scroll Mouse, you can zoom into and out of your image by moving its central scroll wheel.

After you have opened your Picture Frame - or Picture Tube onto Paint Shop Pro’s workspace, you are ready for the next step.

From the top menu, choose File then choose Save as - and you will see the following Save As dialogue box.

Now, click open the Save in tab, and ensure you are saving your Picture Frame to a familiar folder - for example, a folder located in My Documents, as illustrated above. 
Then, click open the Save as type tab, and locate and left-click to highlight PSD Photoshop (*.psd) - (highlighted in red below).

Then click Save.

Your Picture Frame (or Picture Tube), has now been saved as a .psd file, making it compatible with Photoshop; and can now be opened onto Photoshop’s workspace by opening Photoshop in the usual way.

How to open Photoshop (.psd) files onto Paint Shop Pro’s workspace

To utilise Photoshop files in any version of Paint Shop Pro; from the top menu of Paint Shop Pro, choose File then choose Preferences then choose File Format Associations. In the subsequent File Format Associations dialogue box, scroll down the list of file formats, and locate Photoshop (*.psd) - (highlighted below). Now, left-click to place a tick into its tick box, then click OK.

Your Paint Shop Pro version can now recognise, and open, Photoshop (*.psd) files. 

Once your Picture Frame (or Picture Tube) has been opened onto Paint Shop Pro’s workspace, you can either leave the file extension as a .psd (Photoshop) file - alternatively, re-save your Picture Frame - or Picture Tube, as a .psp (Paint Shop Pro) file.
