Preparations:

  • Open the the Tubes and Masks in PSP, minimize to Tray. NOTE: If you are using different colors you might need to colorize
  • Install the font into the Fonts folder of Windows (uninstall after use, too many installed fonts will slow down your pc)
  • Double click on the Alien Skin 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:

       
#ac4d6e #ffffff fodbe2 #000000        

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

  • Set your Foregroundcolor to #ac4d6e
