Translation: October 20 - 2013

~~ Original by AstriDDesigns ~~

Thank you Astrid for asking me to translate your 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:

  • I.C.NET Software Filters Unlimited 2.0
  • Mehdi - Sorting Tiles.
  • VM Toolbox - MirrororriM - * Import into Filters Unlimited
  • MuRa's Meister - Copies.
  • AlienSkin - EyeCandy5 Impact - Backlight & Perspective Shadow
  • L&K SiteOfWonders - Zitah
 

Preparations:

  • Copy the Selection files to the Selections folder of PSP

  • Open the Mask files in PSP and minimize to tray

  • Double Click on the Eye Candy Presets, they will be imported automatically

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 #eeebe4

  • Set your Backgroundcolor to #591a22

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

Used Colors

           
#eeebe4 #591a22            

Color Palette: Set your Foregroundcolor to Foreground/Background Gradient (Corel_06_029) - Style: Radial
