Thank you Yvonne 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:

  • I.C.NET Software Filters Unlimited 2.0
  • &<Bkg Kaleidoscope> - 4QFlip ZBottomL **
  • AP [Lines] - Lines SilverLining
  • Xero - Porcelain

** Import into Filters Unlimited

 

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

 

Colors:

  • Set your Foregroundcolor to #e3d5c7

  • Set your Backgroundcolor to #e9ad9c

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

Used Colors

     
#e3d5c7 #e9ad9c #000000 #f8f0e8

#cd8075
