Materials:  

 

 

Acknowledgements:

  • 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:

  • VanDerLee - Unplugged X - Rotocube
  • MuRa's Meister - Perspective Tiling & Copies
  • lien Skin Eye Candy 5 Impact - Extrude & Perspective Shadow
  • Graphics Plus - Cross Shadow

 

Preparations:

  • Open the Image and the Tubes in PSP, Maximize to Tray. NOTE: If you are using different colors you might need to colorize some of the files.
  • Copy the Selection files to the Selections folder of PSP
  • Double Click on the Eye Candy Presets, they will be imported automatically
  • Open the Brushes in PSP and export them as Custom Brushes ( File - Export - Custom Brush)

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!!!
