Thank you Monique for your permission to translate your tutorials.

Materials:  

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

 

 

Plugins:

  • VM Distortion - Vision Impossible
  • L en K landksiteofwonders - L & Ks Zitah
  • Toadies - What Are You?
  • Alien Skin Eye Candy 5  Impact - Glass
 

Preparations:

  • Open the Mask in PSP and minimize to tray
  • Copy the Selection files to the Selections folder of PSP
  • Copy the Inner Bevel Preset files to the Presets folder of PSP
  • Check if you have the Triangle Preset Shape in your PSP version, if not copy it to the Preset Shapes folder of PSP
  • 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
