Acknowledgements:

  • Translated into English by Chris for ASDwebdesigns, into German by Marion, into Spanish by Maria, 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

 

Plugins:

  • VM Natural - Starmaker**
  • Alien Skin - Eye Candy 5 - Nature - Smoke
  • Alien Skin - Eye Candy 5 - Impact - Perspective Shadow
  • Simple Filters - Blintz

     ** Import into Filters Unlimited

 

Preparations:

  • Copy the Selection to the Selections folder of PSP
  • Place the 2020 Mask into the Masks folder of PSP (if you don't already have it)
  • Copy the Brushes to the Brushes folder of PSP
  • Double click on the Alien Skin Presets, they will install automatically
  • Open all other files in PSP, duplicate and minimize to tray.Close the originals. NOTE: If you are using different colors you might need to colorize some of the files.
     

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 an 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:

       
           

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

  • Set your Foregroundcolor to #000000

  • Set your Backgroundcolor to #ffffff
