Sadly Meta had to leave this earthly world November 2013, Meta was ill for a long time. We will honour her by her beautiful 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.

  • Toadies - What Are You?
  • Flaming Pear - Flexify 2

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 #968979

  • Set your Backgroundcolor to #e8e8e0

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