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

 

 

Materials

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

Plugins:

  • Filters Unlimited 2.0

  • MuRa's Meister -

  • AP Lines - Silverlining -

  • Filter Factory Gallery L - *  Import into Filters Unlimited

 

Preparations:

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 #D81C28 and your Backgroundcolor to #8C0A0A

  • Copy the selection files to the Selections folder of PSP

  • Open the Brush in PSP and export as custom brush ( File - Export - Custom Brush) NOTE: In some versions  you may need to resize the brush first (smaller) to get it exported.
