Here's the download page.
http://suzsplace.com/8scripts/ss-MultipleTags.htm
Don't bother about the instructions there,I'll go through everything and try to keep it as simple as possible.
Anything I say to name make sure it's done exactly the same way,a simple mix up with case letter or simular would cause the code to not work.

1.Right click on the desktop and make a new folder.
Right click to rename and rename it to [FONT=Comic Sans MS, Arial][SIZE=-1]ss-MultipleTags [/SIZE][/FONT]
Download the script package and then extract it into the [FONT=Comic Sans MS, Arial][SIZE=-1]ss-MultipleTags folder[/SIZE][/FONT]

[SIZE=-1][FONT=Comic Sans MS, Arial]2.Open the [/FONT][/SIZE][FONT=Comic Sans MS, Arial][SIZE=-1]ss-MultipleTags folder and find the thing called SampleListOfNames_ss-MultipleTags[/SIZE][/FONT]
[SIZE=-1][FONT=Comic Sans MS, Arial]Drag it onto the desktop.[/FONT][/SIZE]

[SIZE=-1][FONT=Comic Sans MS, Arial]Now back inside the [/FONT][/SIZE][FONT=Comic Sans MS, Arial][SIZE=-1]ss-MultipleTags folder[/SIZE][/FONT][FONT=Comic Sans MS, Arial][SIZE=-1] you will find two things that look like silver gears,make sure you get the right one.[/SIZE][/FONT]
[SIZE=-1][FONT=Comic Sans MS, Arial]The one you need is called ss-MultipleTagsMaster-04[/FONT][/SIZE]
[SIZE=-1][FONT=Comic Sans MS, Arial]Open the scripts trusted folder by going through my computer..cdrive..program files..Jasc Software Inc..Paint Shop Pro9.. Scripts Trusted.[/FONT][/SIZE]
[SIZE=-1][FONT=Comic Sans MS, Arial]Put the [/FONT][/SIZE][FONT=Comic Sans MS, Arial][SIZE=-1]ss-MultipleTagsMaster-04 into the scripts trusted folder.[/SIZE][/FONT]
[SIZE=-1][FONT=Comic Sans MS, Arial]Make sure it is the Scripts Trusted folder..not the Scripts Restricted by mistake.[/FONT][/SIZE]

[SIZE=-1][FONT=Comic Sans MS, Arial]3. Now check in the same folder directory ( [/FONT][/SIZE][FONT=Comic Sans MS, Arial][SIZE=-1]my computer..cdrive..program files..Jasc Software Inc..Paint Shop Pro9) [/SIZE][/FONT][FONT=Comic Sans MS, Arial][SIZE=-1]and you should find a folder called Quick Guides.[/SIZE][/FONT]
[SIZE=-1][FONT=Comic Sans MS, Arial]Open it and see if you have a folder there called Scripts[/FONT][/SIZE]
[SIZE=-1][FONT=Comic Sans MS, Arial]If you don't make a new folder there and rename it Scripts[/FONT][/SIZE]
[SIZE=-1][FONT=Comic Sans MS, Arial]Make enough room for you to be able to see and drag the ss-MultipleTags folder and it's contents from the desktop into the Scripts folder[/FONT][/SIZE]

[SIZE=-1][FONT=Comic Sans MS, Arial]4.Open the C Drive and make a new folder called PSP[/FONT][/SIZE]
[SIZE=-1][FONT=Comic Sans MS, Arial]Open the PSP folder and inside make 3 more new folders[/FONT][/SIZE]
[SIZE=-1][FONT=Comic Sans MS, Arial]Name one of them TagsPSP2 one of them TagsPSP3 and the last one TagsJPG[/FONT][/SIZE]

[SIZE=-1][FONT=Comic Sans MS, Arial]Now drag the [/FONT][/SIZE][FONT=Comic Sans MS, Arial][SIZE=-1]SampleListOfNames_ss-MultipleTags from the desktop into the folder called TagsPSP3[/SIZE][/FONT]

[SIZE=-1][FONT=Comic Sans MS, Arial]That's all the preperation done,On the next post I'll move onto step 2.[/FONT][/SIZE]

NEXT STEP​

1.Open the PSP9 and make sure you can see the Script toolbar,if you can't goto view..toolbars..script.


2. You'll need to use the down arrow in the script toolbar to find the script called ss-MultipleTagsMaster-04

Now you need to do is copy this
C:\PSP\TagsPSP3\SampleListOfNames_ss-MultipleTags.txt


Now on the script toolbar you'll see what looks like paper with a feather on it.
Click that.
Find the part that says Beginning of User-Defined Variables



You'll find a part that says ListOfNames = r''
Place your text in the middle of the two dashes and paste.

It should now say this
ListOfNames = r'C:\PSP\TagsPSP3\SampleListOfNames_ss-MultipleTags.txt'

3. Copy this C:\PSP\TagsPSP2

Place your cursor between the two brackets on the line that says SavePSP = r''
Now Paste.
It should now say SavePSP = r'C:\PSP\TagsPSP2'

4.Copy this C:\PSP\TagsJPG

Place your curser between the two brackets on the line that says SaveJPG = r'
Now paste
It should now say this SaveJPG = r'C:\PSP\TagsJPG'

5.Copy this

C:\Program Files\Jasc Software Inc\Paint Shop Pro 9\Quick Guides\Scripts\ss-MultipleTags\SampleFormatScript_ss-MultipleTags.PspScript

Now place your curser between the brackets on the line that says FormatScript = r'
and paste.

It should now say this
FormatScript = r'C:\Program Files\Jasc Software Inc\Paint Shop Pro 9\Quick Guides\Scripts\ss-MultipleTags\SampleFormatScript_ss-MultipleTags.PspScript'

6.Don't edit the next two parts..prefix and identifier,they're fine as they are.

The next part should have these settings

SaveType = 2

Text type= 0

Rotation=0

TopBottomLocation = 2

LeftRightLocation = 1

ConvertToRaster = 1

Now goto file..save and close the notepad.
If you forget to save it'll ask you when you close the notepad down if you'd like to save the changes. Say YES.

Now you're ready for Part 3

PART 3..Now to use the Script​

1.Open the tag that you wish to have the names added to.
Click on the text tool then choose the text font,color,and size.
Have the antialias as smooth.

2.Now check the toggle execution mode.
It's on the script toolbar next to the paper with the feather.
It should be turned off,if it has a border around it then it's on so click on it to turn it off.

3.Next to the script name on the script toolbar is a blue arrow pointing to the right.
Click that to start the script working.
It'll give you a message..click OK
You'll now get another message..click OK again.
You should now be able to sit back and watch as the names get added automatically.

4.Now goto mycomputer..CDrive..PSP..TagsJPG

In there should be the saved tags.

5.Now that you know the script works it's time to edit your name list ready for when you wish to have your own friends names there instead of the sample names.
Simply go into the CDrive..PSP..TagsPSP3 folder and edit the names that are there for names that you wish.
Keep the names in the same order as they are on the sample.
Do not change the savename but goto file..save to save your formatted names.

6.One more thing to be aware of..if you wish to keep the tags you'll need to change the tag savenames otherwise when you make the next tags for the same people it will save them as the same savename and overwrite the tags originally made with that same savename.

I hope this was as clear as possible and not to much of a nightmare for you

Thanks,I'm sure there's a lot of frustrated people who could find this a godsend,after 16 hrs it was driving me crazy trying to work it all out lol
I have now tested it in thPSP10 and it does work but it needs a couple more edits than the PSP9 does.

In Part1 step 2 the ss-MultipleTagsMaster-04 has to go in the PSP10 trusted scripts folder,not the PSP9 folder as my directions give in the tutorial.
To get to the PSP10 trusted scripts folder I believe you have to go through CDrive..Program Files..Corel..PSP10..Scripts trusted.

Also when you do Part 2 and edit the script here's the extra edits for the PSP10.
At the start you'll find from JascApp import *

def ScriptProperties():
return {
'Author': u'Suz Shook',
'Copyright': u"2005-2006 Suz's Place SuzShook",
'Description': u'Multiple Tag Generator Script',
'Host': u'Paint Shop Pro',
'Host Version': u''

Change the 'Host Version': u'' to 'Host Version': u'10.00'

Also when you choose your font colour,size etc..in the PSP10 set the 'Units' parameter to pixels.

I haven't tried it in 10 yet but it says that it does work but it needs a couple more edits than the PSP9 does.
With the PSP10 when you do Part 2 and edit the script here's the extra edits for the PSP10.
At the start you'll find from JascApp import *

Change the 'Host Version': u'' to 'Host Version': u'10.00'

It also says that when you choose your font colour,size etc..in the PSP10 set the 'Units' parameter to pixels.[/QUOTE]

Good luck.hopefully it will be fine.
Sewnutz came across a error that is baffling everyone connected with the script.
She gets a message that the script isn't in her trusted scripts folder even though she knows it is lol.
It did work in both my PSP versions though,so hopefully should work for you,especially if you're using PSP9.

It seems to me that something small has been added during your copying..pasting.
I tried to send you my edited script text by email but when I tested it the same thing happened.
Instead I've saved my edited version as a script and emailed it to you to put in your trusted scripts folder to use instead of the one that doesn't work.
I've tested it in my PSP9 and it did work so hopefully should for you too.
Let me know if there's any problems and I'll look into it.

I hope it works for you PV.
If anyone has a problem with the script PM me and I'll email you my edited version of the script to use,there will then be no need to edit that script,just put my version in the scripts trusted PSP9 folder,and have other folders in the right place and named as in the tutorial.

Certainly,I've emailed it off to you,put it in your scripts trusted folder and use it instead of the original script.
It has worked for MsyRoss :colgate:
