Plugins:

  • AAA Filters - AAA Framer

Preparations:

  • Copy the Selection files to the Selections folder of PSP
  • Copy the Gradient  to the Gradients folder of PSP
  • Open all other files in PSP, minimize to Tray. NOTE: If you are using different colors you might need to colorize

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:

       
#feb423 #057f7e #000000 #ffffff        

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

  • Set your Foregroundcolor to #feb423

  • Set your Backgroundcolor to #057f7e
