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
  • Mehdi - Sorting Tiles & Weaver
  • AP [Lines] - Lines - SilverLining
  • VM Stylize - Zoom Blur **
  • Flaming Pear - Flexify2
  • AAA Frames - Foto frame

** Import to Filters Unlimited

 

Preparations:

  • Copy the Selection files to the Selections folder of PSP

  • Open the Mask in PSP and minimize to tray

  • Copy the Gradient file to the Gradients folder of PSP

  • Save the Flexify Preset to your Hard drive

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 #ffffff

  • Set your Backgroundcolor to #000000

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