  • Flaming Pear - Flood

 

Preparations:

  • Open the Image, Tubes and the Mask in PSP, minimize to Tray. NOTE: If you are using different colors you might need to colorize
  • Save the Flood Preset to your Hard Drive

From PSP 14 and higher 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. From PSP 17 the option is back

 

 

Colors:

         
#ffffff

#26425f

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

  • Set your Foregroundcolor to #ffffff

  • Set your Backgroundcolor to #26425f
