As isometric view doesn''t include any perspective projection you should be able to just rotate the image 45 degrees and then scale the height to fit in the diamond tile. I''m not sure how to do this in PSP, as I don''t have it, but I know it can be done easily with Photoshop.

Ok I understand that but i guess my example was too simple, let's say I want to map a square texture on any 4 corner form.. some programs that do this must exist no?

Again I would have to turn to Photoshop. I know how to do it there, it is in fact very simple to do. You can transform a rectangle by dragging its vertices to their new positions.

I don''t have any other programs so I cannot say anything about them.

PaintShopPro allows you to very easily rotate it around so it become''s isometric then just apply it to the tile
