Materials:  

 

Acknowledgements:

  • Translated into English by ASDwebdesigns, into German by Marion and  into French by Lorna

  • With special thanks to the people behind the scenes

  • TD-studio uses tubes by Kitty & Annelies regularly with their permission

  • It@lian Editors Effect - Effetto Fantasma and Bordo con luci
  • Alien Skin Eye Candy 5 Impact - Motion Trail

Preparations:

  • Open the Images, The Mask and the Tubes in PSP, minimize to tray NOTE: If you are using different colors you might need to colorize some of the files.
  • Copy the Selection files to the Selections folder of PSP
  • Double Click on the Eye Candy Preset, it will be installed automatically

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

NOTE: If you use your own images or tubes, make them the same size!!!
