Thank you Joke & Ben for your permission to translate your tutorials.

Please read my TERMS before sharing this tutorial!

 

 

Materials:  

Note:This tutorial uses a frame with a tube, If you would like to use a tube of your own you can make one by a separate tutorial written by me (ASDwebdesigns) HERE

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

 

 

Plugins:

  • Lotis Filters - Mosaic Toolkit Plus **
  • Forrest's Filters - Swirl **
  • AAA - Frames - Foto Frame
  • Simple - Pizza Slice Mirror
  • Alien Skin Eye Candy 5 - Impact - Perspective Shadow & Bevel
  • MuRa's Meister - Perspective Tiling

** Included in Materials

 

Preparations:

  • Double Click on the Eye Candy Presets, they will be imported automatically
  • Copy the Selection files to the Selections 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

 

Colors:

  • Set your Foregroundcolor to #5D317C

  • Set your Backgroundcolor to #AFAFD3

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

Used Colors

       
#5D317C #AFAFD3 #CFD0EE #3A2343        

Color Palette: Set your Foregroundcolor to Foreground/Background Gradient (Corel_06_029) - Style: Sunburst
