Thank you Astrid for asking me to translate your beautiful tutorials.

Please read my TERMS before sharing this tutorial!

 

 

Materials:  

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

 

 

Plugins:

  • Flaming Pear - Flood
  • VanDerLee - Unplugged X - 45° Rectangle, Defocus & Interlace
  • Alien Skin EyeCandy 5 Impact - Perspective Shadow
 

Preparations:

  • Open the Mask files in PSP and minimize to tray
  • Copy the Selection files to the Selections folder of PSP
  • Open the Brushes in PSP and export them as Custom Brush ( File - Export - Custom Brush)
  • Double Click on the Eye Candy Preset, it will be imported automatically
  • PSP 9  Users (or earlier versions): If you do not have the 20/20 mask needed for this tutorial you can download it HERE - Copy the 20/20 mask file to the mask folder of PSP
  • 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

 

Colors:

  • Set your Foregroundcolor to #008e9c

  • Set your Backgroundcolor to #523e27

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

Used Colors
