Thank you Annie for your permission to translate your tutorials.

 

 

Materials

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

Plugins:

  • Alf's Border FX - Mirror Bevel

  • Tramages - Tow The Line & TeeWee

  • Simple - Left Right Wrap

  • MuRa's Meister - Pole Transform

 

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 #eee7cc and your Backgroundcolor to #052064

  • Open image "Arfrac3" in PSP and minimize to tray

  • Copy the selection files to the Selections folder of PSP

 

Used Colors:

Tube by Mary Graphic. She shares her tubes HERE
