This tutorial is written by Ann May, 2014 with a Dutch version of PSP X6

Materials:  

 

 

Acknowledgements:

  • Translated into English by Chris for 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
  • VM Texture - Cross Weave **
  • MuRa's Meister - Perspective Tiling
  • Photo Aging Kit - Border Fade**
  • Flaming Pear - Flood

    ** Import into Filters Unlimited

 

Preparations:

  • Copy the Gradient to the Gradients folder of PSP
  • Copy the 2020 Mask to the Masks folder of PSP (if you don't already have it)
  • Copy the Script to the Scripts Trusted folder of PSP
  • Copy the Brushes to the Brushes folder of PSP
  • Save the Flood Preset to your desktop
  • Open all other files in PSP, duplicate and 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:

     
#fffff0 #593e61 #000000      

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

  • Set your Foregroundcolor to #fffff0

  • Set your Backgroundcolor to #593e61

Color Palette: Set your Backgroundcolor to Gradient - @nn_280613_GR_Elise_tdstudio - Style: Radial
