Thank you Monaliza for your permission to translate your tutorials.

Please read my TERMS before sharing this tutorial!

 

 

Materials:  Tubes not included ( you need a scenery and a main tube), no other materials needed.

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

 

 

Preparations:

  • Double Click on the Eye Candy Presets ,they will be imported automatically
  • 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: Pick a dark foregoundcolor and a Light backgroundcolor form your tube

I used these colors

 

   
#282244 #949ed4 #000000 #ffffff    

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