This translation is written with PSP17, if you work with older versions some things might be different but the result will be the same.

 

 

Acknowledgements:

  • Tube by Claudia Viza

 

Plugins:

  • Simple - Blintz &  4Way Average
  • Graphics Plus - Cross Shadow
  • Alien Skin Eye Candy 5 - Impact - Perspective Shadow

 

Preparations:

  • Open all Tubes in PSP, duplicate and close the originals. NOTE: If you are using different colors you might need to colorize some of the files.
  • Copy the Selection files to the Selections folder of PSP

From PSP 14, 15 AND 16 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:

       
#d7d7d5 #5a5a58 #96797b #000000        

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