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:

  • Alien Skin Eye Candy 5 Impact - Perspective Shadow
  • Backgroundmaniac  - Stripes n' More

 

Preparations:

  • Open the Brush in PSP and export as Custom Brush
  • Copy the Gradient file to the Selections folder of PSP
  • Open the Mask file in PSP and minimize to tray
  • 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

  • Set your Foregroundcolor to #ffffff

  • Set your Backgroundcolor to #231436

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

Used Colors
