Translation: December - 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
  • DC Special - Book
  • Simple - Pizza Slice Mirror, 4 Way Average & Zoom Out and Flip
  • Funhouse - Loom **
  • VM Toolbox - MirrororriM
  • Alien Skin Eye Candy   Impact - Perspective Shadow

** Import into Filters Unlimited

 

Preparations:

  • Copy the Selection files to the Selections folder of PSP

  • Open the Mask files 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

 

Colors:

  • Set your Foregroundcolor to #ffffff

  • Set your Backgroundcolor to #000000

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

Used Colors

           
#ffffff #000000            

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