Please read my TERMS before sharing this tutorial!

Thank you Angela from Nocturnes PSP World for the Dutch translation

Merci Beaucoup Micha pour traduire mes tutoriels en français

Materials:  

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

 

 

Plugins:

  • VM Instant Art -  Wired
  • Transparency - Eliminate Black
  • Alien Skin Eye Candy 5 - Impact - Glass
  • Adjust - Variations

 

Preparations:

  • Copy the Selection file to the Selections folder of PSP

  • Open the Mask files in PSP and minimize to tray

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

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 #e3e1d6

  • Set your Backgroundcolor to #8e8d70

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

All colors used:

         
#e3e1d6 #8e8d70 #000000
