Thank you Ben & Joke 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:

  • L&K SiteOfWonders - L en K"s Jouri
  • Transparency - Eliminate Black
  • Simple - Blintz
  • VanDerLee - Unplugged-X - Defocus
  • AP14 [Motion] - Paint
  • Flaming Pear - Flood
 

Preparations:

  • Copy the Selection files to the Selections folder of PSP
  • Copy the Gradient files to the Gradient folder of PSP

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

  • Set your Foregroundcolor to #004D82

  • Set your Backgroundcolor to #FFFFFF
