Thank you Athenaïs for your permission to translate your tutorials.

Please read my TERMS before sharing this tutorial!

 

 

Materials:  

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

 

 

Plugins:

  • VanderLee - Unplugged-X - Defocus 

  • Mehdi - Sorting Tiles 

  • Simple - Blintz 

  • Eye Candy 5 : Impact - Perspective Shadow 

  • MuRa's Meister - Perspective Tiling 

  • AP [Lines] - Lines - SilverLining

 

Preparations:

  • Copy the Selection files to the Selections folder of PSP
  • Copy the Picture Frame s to the Picture Frames folder of PSP
  • Double Click on the Eye Candy Presets, they will be imported automatically

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. There is a easy way to add the old Mirror and Flip options to the Image Menu. I have written a tutorial you can find it HERE

 

Colors:

  • Set your Foregroundcolor to #ba8d3a

  • Set your Backgroundcolor to #000000

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

Used Colors

         
#ba8d3a #000000 #ffffff
