Thank you Bylinna for translating my tutorials into Italian!

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

 

Plugins:

  • Alien Skin Eye Candy 5 - Impact - Glass

  • Nik Software - Color Efex Pro! 3.0 Complete - Photo Stylizer - Cool Silver

Preparations:

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

  • Set your Foregroundcolor to #a65854 and your Backgroundcolor to #e5e2e1

  • Copy the selection files to the Selections folder of PSP

  • Open the mask file in PSP and minimize to tray

  • Double Click on the Eye Candy Preset, it will be imported automatically

  • Copy the Balls and Bubbles Preset to the Presets folder of PSP

 

Used Colors

NOTE: the colors will go to purple at the end of the tutorial!!!!! So do not think you are using the wrong colors :-)
