Materials:  

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

 

 

Plugins:

  • Alien Skin Eye Candy 5 - Impact - Perspective Shadow

 

Preparations:

  • Double Click on the Eye Candy Preset, it will be imported automatically
  • Open the Mask file in PSP and minimize to tray
  • Copy the Raster Deform Preset  to the Presets  folder of PSP
  • Open the Brushes in PSP and export them as Custom Brush ( File - Export - Custom Brush)

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 #FFFFFF

  • Set your Backgroundcolor to #000000

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

Used Colors

       
#FFFFFF #000000 #F34559 #f3ba41
