Materials:  

 

 

Acknowledgements:

  • Translated into English by Chris for ASDwebdesigns, into German by Marion and into French by Lorna

  • With special thanks to the people behind the scenes

  • TD-studio uses tubes by Kitty & Annelies regularly with their permission

 

Plugins:

  • <I.C.NET Software> - Filters Unlimited 2.0
  • Alien Skin - Eye Candy 5 - Impact
  • MuRa's Meister - Perspective Tiling
  • Toadies - Weaver**

     **Install into Filters Unlimited otherwise your result will be different

 

Preparations:

  • Copy  Mask @nn_130912_mask_162 to the Masks folder of PSP
  • Copy the Selection to the Selections folder of PSP
  • Copy the Brushes to the Brushes folder of PSP
  • Open all other files in PSP, duplicate and close the originals. NOTE: If you are using different colors you might need to colorize some of the files.
     

From PSP 14, 15 AND 16 there is no option for Image - Mirror & Image -  Flip There is a new option but this does not give the same result except when the tube/image covers the whole image from side to side There is an easy way to add the old Mirror and Flip options to the Image Menu, I have written a tutorial you can find it HERE. From PSP 17 the option is back

NOTE: If you use your own images or tubes, make them the same size!!!

 

 

Colors:

   
#d0d6e6 #634784 #ffffff #000000    

Note: When working with your own colors, play with the Blend Mode and/or Opacity at your own discretion

  • Set your Foregroundcolor to #d0d6e6

  • Set your Backgroundcolor to #634784
