I am trying to duplicate the grill effect shown in the photo using Paint shop pro and can't seem to figure it out. I have tried using the binds texture effect but that doesn't quite work. Any suggestions?

What I use is a foreground-background gradient with the paint bucket, I've attached a series of 4 image describing the steps I used, I hope this is what you're looking for. There are a variety of settings, angles and patterns you can do with this, I find it a useful tool.

Also, if you'd like to make it look more realistic you can do the following: (I just took a close look at your image)

Hope this helps.

use a wide inner bevel on a single "bar" of the grill then simply copy the bar downwards.

use the color gradient tool to create one of these ribs and then copy and paste. For the final touch i recommend a shadow effect so that the grid is a bit deeper.

Thanks this is going to take some work to learn. I geuss that this is one spot where paint shop is a bit more user friendly .

Agreed, personally I don't really use photoshop to do much texturing, the majority of it is done in PSP and in photoshop I pretty much just save it (I use it for alphas and bevels).

Are there any tool or addon I could down that might make this simpler?
