This tutorial is made with PSP 2018
But you can make it with other versions

Any resemblance to other tutorials on the wide web is based on mere coincidence.

Leave the names and watermarks of tubes and other material intact.
It takes a lot of work to make this.
Please respect this.

I also thank everyone for their tubes and materials that I can use in my tutorials.

In order not to ruin the surprise for others PLEASE do not post your version in puclic

Thanks !

General preparations :
First install the filters that you did not have, before you open PSP !!
Open your tubes in PSP, duplicate them and close the originals.
Do not forget to remove the watermarks on the copies.

Tubes :
(*) If you recognize them as one of your own, please let me know, so I can add your name or remove the tube.

THEMA
BOOTS


You need a tube of a woman/man/child with boots on (so a full tube with feet!)
I use a tube from LB

1/ BL45_KaD_Element1
2/ BL45_KaD_Element2

Alpha Selections : open  in PSP and minimize
1/ 1/ BL45_KaD_Alfakanaal  (this image is not empty – it contains alpha selections)

 

Color palette :
If you work with your own colors, make your own color palette with the alpha channel,
so you can easily switch between your colors.

There are color differences in the different versions of Psp.
Therefore, use the html codes of the color palette to be sure,
that you have the same colors. Also when merging layers, there may be color differences.   
 

Plugins : 
1/ VanDerLee – Unplugged-X – 45° Rectangle
2/ AP [Innovations] – Lines – Silverlining
3/ AAA Frames – Foto Frame
