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

 

Plugins:

  • Xero - Clarity

  • Alien Skin Eye Candy5  Impact - Perspective Shadow

  • Alien Skin Eye Candy5 Snapart  - Impasto

 

Preparations:

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

  • Set your Foregroundcolor to #898174 and your Backgroundcolor to #ffffff

  • Double Click on the Eye Candy Presets, they will be imported automatically
