Materials:  

 

 

Acknowledgements:

  • Translated into German by Regina and into French by Lorna

  • With special thanks to the people behind the scenes

  • Tubes by Yoka, Gini, Maryse and Jax

 

Plugins:

  • Toadies - Ommadawn
  • MuRa's Meister - Copies
  • AAA Frames - Foto Frame
  • Alien Skin Eye Candy 5 Impact - Perspective Shadow
  • Flaming Pear - Flood

 

Preparations:

  • Open The Tubes in PSP, duplicate and close the originals. NOTE: If you are using different colors you might need to colorize some of the files.
  • Copy the Selection to the Selections folder of PSP
  • Double Click on the Eye Candy Preset, it will be imported automatically
  • Save the Flaming Pear Preset to your Hard Drive

From PSP X4, X5 AND X6 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. From PSP X7 and newer versions the option is back

NOTE: If you use your own images or tubes, make them the same size!!!
