Thank you Astrid for your permission to translate your tutorials.

 

Materials download  

Plugins:

  • AP Lines - Silverlining - Dotty Grid.

  • Simple - Half Wrap.

  • Filters Unlimited 2.0 - Color Effects -Bi Color (fore-/background color)

  •  Graphics Plus - Cross Shadow

 

Preparations:

  • Copy the selection file to the Selections folder of PSP

  • PSP 9  Users (or earlier versions): If you do not have the 20/20 mask needed for this tutorial you can download it HERE - Copy the 20/20 mask file to the mask folder of PSP

  • Open the Brush in PSP and export as custom brush ( File - Export - Custom Brush) NOTE: In some versions  you may need to resize the brush first (smaller) to get it exported.

  • In PSP 14 & 15 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. Therefore I have created a solution: Download two PSP scripts HERE. Copy the Scripts to the Scripts Restricted Folder of PSP. You can use it as a script in PSP 14 & 15 as a replacement for the Image/Mirror/Flip options.

 

Used Colors

  • Foregroundcolor: #bbb5c0

  • Backgroundcolor: #3a3134

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

 

This translation is written with PSP15 but can also be made with other PSP versions.
