This translation is written with PSP X9, if you work with older versions some things might be different but the result will be the same.

 

Acknowledgements:

  • Tube by LB TUBES
  • Mask by Narah

 

Plugins:

  • <I.C.NET Software> - Filters Unlimited 2.0
  • Toadies - What Are You?
  • MuRa's Meister - Perspective Tiling
  • Tramages - Tow The Line
  • AAA Frames - Foto Frame
  • &<Bkg Designer sf10 IV - @Easy Corner UpperLeft and Starmaker
  • Alien Skin - Eye Candy 5 - Impact - Perspective Shadow and Bevel

 

Preparations:

  • Open the tubes and Mask in PSP, minimize to Tray. NOTE: If you are using different colors you might need to colorize
  • Copy the Selections to the Selections folder of PSP
  • Double click on the Alien Skn Preset it will install automatically

From PSP 14 and higher 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 an easy way to add the old Mirror and Flip options to the Image Menu I have written a tutorial you can find it HERE. From PSP 17 the option is back

 

 

Colors:

         
#983e1d #090619 #000000          

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

  • Set your Foregroundcolor to #983e1d

  • Set your Backgroundcolor to #090619
