Thank you Athenaļs for your permission to translate your tutorials.

Materials:  

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

 

 

Plugins:

  • Mehdi - Sorting Tiles
  • L&K SiteOfWonders - L en K"s Djin
  • Toadies - What Are You?
  • AAA Frames - Foto frame
 

Preparations:

  • Open the Mask in PSP and minimize to tray4
  • Double click on the font (ttf) to open. Minimize to tray, you can use it now in PSP. Note: If you are using PSP13 or higher in combination with Windows 7 or 8 you need to install the font to the Font folder of Windows.

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 #225559

  • Set your Backgroundcolor to #ffffff

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