Materials:  

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

 

 

Plugins:

  • VM Manipulation - X Mirror
  • Filters Unlimited 2.0 - Tile & Mirror
  • L&K SiteOfWonders - L en K Paris
  • Alien Skin Eye Candy 5 - Impact - Perspective Shadow & Glass
  • VanDerLee - Unplugged X
  • Simple - Pizza Slice Mirror
  • Toadies - Weaver
 

Preparations:

  • Copy the Selection files to the Selections folder of PSP

  • Open the Mask files in PSP and minimize to tray

  • Double Click on the Eye Candy Preset, it will be imported automatically
  • Open the Brush in PSP and export as custom brush ( File - Export - Custom Brush)

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 #f2d6b7

  • Set your Backgroundcolor to #992d0d

Note: When working with your own colors use a light Foreground color and a dark Backgroundcolor, play with the Blend Mode and/or Opacity at your own discretion

 

       
#f2d6b7 #992d0d #000000 #ffffff #4d737f        

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