This translation is written with PSP18, if you work with older versions some things might be different but the result will be the same.

  • Mask by Narah

 

 

Plugins:

  • AP [Utility] - Utility - Reflections
  • Mehdi - Sorting Tiles
  • Alien Skin - Eye Candy 5 - Impact - Perspective Shadow

 

Preparations:

  • Copy the Selection files to the Selections folder of PSP
  • Export the three brushes to the Brushes folder of PSP (File - Export - Custom Brush)
  • Open all files in PSP, duplicate and close the originals.
  • Install the font to the Fonts folder of Windows
  • NOTE: If you are using different colors you might need to colorize some of the files
  • 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:

             
    121a05 #ffffff #000000          

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

    • Set your Foregroundcolor to #121a05
