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:

  • VM Natural - Splash! & Lakeside Reflection
  • Transparency - Eliminate Black

  • Flaming Pear - flood

 

Preparations:

  • 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.
  • Open the Mask files in PSP and minimize to tray
  • Copy the Selection file 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

 

Colors:

  • Set your Foregroundcolor to #134683

  • Set your Backgroundcolor to #ffffff

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

Used Colors

       
#134683 #ffffff #001147 #000000
