Thank you Astrid for your permission to translate your tutorials.

 

 

Materials:  

This translation is written with PSP15 but can also be made with other PSP versions.

  • Filters Unlimited 2.0

Preparations:

  • Set your Foregroundcolor to #a5a535

  • Set your Backgroundcolor to #ffffff

  • Copy the selection files to the Selections folder of PSP

  • Open the Brush in PSP and export as custom brush ( File - Export - Custom Brush) NOTE: In some versions  you may need to resize the brush first (smaller) to get it exported.

  • Double Click on the Eye Candy Preset, it will be imported automatically

  • Open the mask file in PSP and minimize to tray

In PSP 14 & 15 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
