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:

  • FM Tiles Tools - Blend Emboss
  • AP Distort - SlicedTurn
  • Frischluft - Mosaic Plane
  • VM Extravaganza - Transmission
  •  AP [Lines] - Lines - SilverLining
  • Richard Rosenman - Grid Generator
  • Alien Skin Eye Candy 5 Impact - Perspective Shadow & Glass

 

Preparations:

  • Copy the Selection files to the Selections folder of PSP
  • Open the Brush in PSP and export as custom brush ( File - Export - Custom Brush)
  • 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 #d4b9a6

  • Set your Backgroundcolor to #404040

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

Used Colors

       
#d4b9a6 #404040 #ffffff #000000        

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