Preparations:

  • Copy the Selection to the Selections folder of PSP
  • Copy the Masks to the Masks folder of PSP
  • Copy the Gradient to the Gradients folder of PSP
  • 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 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:

       
#000000 #ffffff        

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

Color Palette: Set your Backgroundcolor to @nn_041114_GR_Felien_tdstudio Gradient - Style: Linear
