This translation is written with PSP X8, if you work with older versions some things might be different but the result will be the same.

 

Plugins:

  • VM Toolbox - Trimosaic
  • Visual Manipulation - Transmission
  • MuRa's Meister - Perspective Tiling
  • Tramages - Pool Shadow
  • Alien Skin Eye Candy 5 Impact - Extrude

 

Preparations:

  • Open the Mask and the Tubes in PSP, minimize to Tray. NOTE: If you are using different colors you might need to colorize
  • Double Click on the Eye Candy Preset, it will be imported 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 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 17 the option is back

#ffffff #56606a #000000 #1a1c21 #91110e
