Thank you Pascale for your permission to translate your tutorials.

 

Materials

Plugins:

  • &<BKg Designer sf10 I> - ALFs Border Mirror Bevel

  • Filters Unlimited 2.0 - Color Filters

  • VDL Adrenaline - Snowflakes

  • Graphics Plus - Cross Shadow

 

Preparations:

  • Copy the selection files to the Selections folder of PSP

  • 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. Therefore I have created a solution: Download two PSP scripts HERE. Copy the Scripts to the Scripts Restricted Folder of PSP. You can use it as a script in PSP 14 & 15 as a replacement for the Image/Mirror/Flip options.

 

Used Colors

  • Foregroundcolor: #8da4b9

  • Backgroundcolor: #f6f7f6

  • Other: #ffffff, #b3d0e6, #264761

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