Thank you Annick 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:

  • VanDerLee, Unplugged-X - Pixel Distort
  • Flaming Pear - Flood
  • <I.C.NET Software> - Filters Unlimited 2.0 - Button & Frames

 

Preparations:

  • Open the Brushes in PSP and export them as Custom Brushes

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 #454543

  • Set your Backgroundcolor to #edb08f

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

Used Colors

   
#454543 #edb08f #a37e6c #f5d4c1 #000000    

Color Palette: Set your Foregroundcolor to Foreground/Background Gradient (Corel_06_029) - Style: Linear
