Thank you Monique 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:

  • <I.C.NET Software>  Filters Unlimited  2.0

  • VM Toolbox - Seamless Tile

  • It@lian Editors Effect Effetto Fantasma

  • Effects - Plugins AAA frames Foto Frame

  ** Import into Filters Unlimited

 

Preparations:

Double Click on the Eye Candy Preset, it will be imported automatically

Text is provided but if you want to write your own text: Double click on the font (ttf) to open. Minimize to tray, you can use it now in PSP. Note: If you are using PSP13 or higher in combination with Windows 7 or 8 you need to install the font to the Font folder of Windows.

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 #f4edd3

  • Set your Backgroundcolor to #404040

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

Used Colors

       
#f4edd3 #404040 #ffffff #6b7b37
