Preparations:

  • Open the Mask in PSP and minimize to tray


  • Double Click on the Eye Candy Preset, it will install automatically
  • From PSP 14, 15 AND 16 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

     

     

    Colors:

           
    #262229 #9798a4 #4f4260 #ffffff        

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

    • Set your Foregroundcolor to #262229

    • Set your Backgroundcolor to #9798a4

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



    Note: If you are using different colors you need a very dark color in the Foreground to achieve a good result
