Translation -  October 3 -  2013

~~ Original by Benice Designs ~~

Thank you Joke & Ben 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:

  • <I.C.NET Software>  - Filters Unlimited 2.0

  • VM Natural - Weave Distortion & Sparkle

  • VanDerLee - Unplugged-X: Defocus

  • Kang 3 - Oceantyle:  *

  • Toadies - Weaver *

  • AP [Lines] - Lines - SilverLining

* Import into Filters Unlimited - Do not use these Plugins through PSP itself because the outcome will be different!!

 

Preparations:

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 #2FC65D

  • Set your Backgroundcolor to #E585B3

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

Used Colors

     
#2FC65D #E585B3 #000000 #ffffff #B98099      

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