Preparations:

  • Copy the Selections to the Selections folder of PSP
  • Copy the Picture Frame to the Picture Frames folder of PSP
  • Place the Brushes in the Brushes folder of PSP
  • Double click on the Eye Candy 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 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:

   
#d3dae4 #47444d #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 #d3dae4

  • Set your Backgroundcolor to #47444d
