Thank you Athenaļs 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:

  • VM Natural -  Weave Distortion
  • Mock - Windo
  • Transparency - Eliminate Black
  • MuRa's Meister - Perspective Tiling
  • Tramages - Tow The Line
  • Alien Skin Eye Candy Impact - Perspective Shadow

 

Preparations:

  • Copy the Selection files to the Selections folder of PSP
  • Double Click on the Eye Candy Preset, it 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 #8CBBF2

  • Set your Backgroundcolor to #CED3B9

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

Used Colors

     
#000000 #8CBBF2 #CED3B9 #7fc6f4 #ffffff
