Please read my TERMS before sharing this tutorial!

         

 

 

Materials:  

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

 

 

Plugins:

  • Toadies - What Are You?
  • Alien Skin Eye Candy 5 Impact - Glass & Perspective Tiling
  • Flaming Pear - Flexify2
  • VM Distortion - Tilomat 2000

 

Preparations:

  • Copy the Gradient to the Gradients folder of PSP
  • Open the Mask in PSP and minimize to tray
  • Double Click on the Eye Candy Presets, they will be imported automatically
  • Copy the Selection files to the Selections folder of PSP

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 #c78198

  • Set your Backgroundcolor to #f6f1ed

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

Used Colors

       
#c78198 #f6f1ed #785656 #000000        

Color Palette: Set your Foregroundcolor to Foreground/Background Gradient (Corel_06_029) - Style: Linear 

 

Acknowledgements:
