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

Materials  

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

 

 

Plugins:

  • AP - Utility - Utility Both-Sides & Utility Reflections

  • VanDerLee - Unplugged-X

 

Preparations:

  • Copy the Selection files to the Selections folder of PSP
  • Open the Brushes in PSP and export as Custom Brush ( File - Export - Custom Brush)
  • Open the Mask files in PSP and minimize to tray

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 #ffffff

  • Set your Backgroundcolor to #000000 (Mandatory!)

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

Used Colors

     
#ffffff #000000 #c0c0c0 #22163a
