This tutorial is written by Ann June 29 with a Dutch version of PSP X5
Any similarity to other tutorials is a coincidence

 

 

Materials:  

NOTE:  Includes extra material in different colors/different text (for advanced users) Or make your own Text out of song texts, add Initials and the name of your favorite artist. Work on 3 different Layers and change the opacity from each Layer: for example Layer 1: 100%, Layer 2: 75%, Layer 3: 50%, use a nice font)

 

 

Acknowledgements:

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

  • Whith special thanks to the people behind the scenes

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

 

Plugins:

  • <I.C.NET Software> - Filters Unlimited 2.0 - Buttons & Frames
  • BKG Designer sf10 III - VMT Instant Tile & Turbine Mirror **
  • Flaming Pear - Flood
  • VanderLee - Unplugged X
  • Alien Skin Eye Candy 5 Nature

 

Preparations:

  • Maximize the tubes and JPG Images  in PSP. 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
  • Save the Flood Preset to your Hard Drive
  • Copy the Preset Raster Deform to the Presets folder of PSP

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!!!

 

 

Colors:

       
#ffffff #b18f45 #000000        

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

  • Set your Foregroundcolor to #ffffff
