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:

  • Flaming Pear - Flood 
  • VanDerLee - Unplugged-X - Defocus - Raster 
  • Filter Factory Gallery A - Triangular Mosaic Filter 
  • MuRa's Meister - Copies 
  •  penta.com - color dot
  • AAA Frames  - Foto Frame
     
 

Preparations:

  • Copy the Selection files to the Selections folder of PSP

  • PSP 9  Users (or earlier versions): If you do not have the 20/20 mask needed for this tutorial you can download it HERE - Copy the 20/20 mask file to the mask folder of PSP
  • Save the Flaming Pear Preset to your Hard Drive (Make sure you know where it is!)
  • 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 #0b172f

  • Set your Backgroundcolor to #92c0f0

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

Used Colors

       
#0b172f #92c0f0 #000000 #ffffff        

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