This tutorial is written by Ann March 2013 with a Dutch version of PSP X5
Any similarity to other tutorials is a coincidence

 

 

Materials:  

 

 

Acknowledgements:

  • Translated into English by ASDwebdesigns, into German by Marion 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:

  • AlphaWorks - Horizontal FadeOut
  • Mock - Bevel
  • Penta.com - VTR
  • <I.C.NET Software> - Filters Unlimited 2.0  - Buttons & Frames

 

Preparations:

  • Open the Mask in PSP and minimize to tray
  • Copy the Gradient  to the Gradients folder of PSP
  • Copy the Texture  to the Textures folder of PSP
  • Open the Brush in PSP and export as Custom Brush ( File - Export - Custom Brush) or copy to the Brushes 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 #000000        

 

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

  • Set your Foregroundcolor to @nn_150313_GR_Mae_tdstudio Gradient form the materials - Style: Linear

 
  • Set your Backgroundcolor to #ffffff
