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:

  • Neology - Blend Mosaic

  • AP [Lines] - Lines - SilverLining

  • Simple - Blintz & 4 Way Average 

  • Unplugged Colors - Purify

  • Toadies - What Are You?

  • Nik Software - Color Efex Pro 3.0 - Bleach Bypass

  • Alien Skin Eye candy 5 Impact - Extrude

 

Preparations:

Copy the Selection file to the Selections folder of PSP

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

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 #d1a54e

  • Set your Backgroundcolor to #404040

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