Thank you Annick for your permission to translate your tutorials.

Materials:  

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

 

 

Plugins:

  • AP [Distort] - Distort - Shiftmesh
  • MuRa's Meister - Perspective Tiling
  • It@lian Editors Effect - Effetto Fantasma & Bordo con lucci
 

Preparations:

  • Copy the Selection files to the Selections folder of PSP
  • Open the Brushes in PSP and export them as Custom Brushes
  • Copy the Frame to the Picture Frame folder of PSP (This is a Corel Frame ( Corel_09_093) check first if you already have it
  • Copy the Gradient to the Gradient folder of PSP (This is a Corel Gradient ( Corel_06_028) check first if you already have it
  • 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 #000000

  • Set your Backgroundcolor to #ffffff

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

Used Colors

           
#000000 #ffffff
