Thank you Astrid for your permission 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:

  • Filters Unlimited 2.0

  • Simple - Blintz * - Import into Filters Unlimited

  • UnPlugged Shapes - 45 Degree Rectangle

  • AP lines - Silverlining - Dotty Grid.

  • FM Tile Tools - Blend Emboss.

  • AAA Frames - Foto Frame.

  • Alien Skin Eye Candy 5 Impact - Perspective Shadow.

Preparations:

  • Set your Foregroundcolor to #ffffff

  • Set your Backgroundcolor to a dark color from your tube, I used #35302D

  • Copy the selection files to the Selections folder of PSP

  • Copy the mask file to the mask folder of PSP

  • Double Click on the Eye Candy Preset, it 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

Used Colors

         
#ffffff #35302D #000000          

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