  • 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

  • AAA Frames - Foto Frame

** Import into Filters Unlimited (Mandatory!!)

 

Preparations:

  • Open the Images and Tues in PSP, minimize to Tray 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:

       
#ffffff #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

  • Set your Backgroundcolor to #000000
