No tutorials

Dear people,

As you can see on my page, the tutorials are not shown, because I temporarily disabled them. I did this action, because I accidentally removed most images of the tutorials in Google Photos.
So unfortunately I have to put all images back and it's going to take a while to do that.

Thanks for all who are stopping by my page frequently. I hope I can make the tutorials operate as soon as possible.

God bless!

Ona K.

Psp tutorial: Piano


I've seen this image around 2009/2010, but as far as I know, there has never been a tutorial for this image, so I assembled the whole tutorial alone by myself. The tubes are created by me, so please leave the layers intact. The tubes can always be used for personal stuff, you only have to ask permission first if you would like to use them in a tutorial.

This tutorial will be written in English.

==========

I've made this tutorial in PSP X4, but can be made in other PSP versions as well. Don't forget to save your work from time to time. I assume you know how to work with the Mirror and Flip script in PSP X4.

Materials: 
Classical Piano (misted) tube - here.
Painted Pink Flowers (regular and misted) tube - here.
Purple Garden Flowers (misted) tube - here.
Violin (misted) tube - here.
Music Notes mask - here.
20-20 mask - here.

Place the tubes, masks, etcetera in the right folders.

Plugins:
MuRa's Meister - Copies
Graphics Plus - Cross Shadow
Before opening Corel Paint Shop Pro, install the plugins first.

Alright, let's get started!

1) Set the foreground colour to #5c3341 and the background colour to #d6caca.
2) Open a new transparent canvas of 750 x 600 px. Flood fill the canvas with the background colour.
3) Press on Ctrl+A on your keyboard.
4) Add a new raster layer to your work. Open the tube "Purple_Garden_Flowers(misted)-Nolver_24042015". Copy the tube and paste it into the selection.
5) Remove the selection. Add a new raster layer and flood fill this layer with the background colour.
6) Go to Adjust ----> Hue & Saturation ---> Colorize: Hue = 38; Saturation = 255.
7) Go to Adjust ----> Hue & Saturation ---> Hue/Saturation/Lightness: Hue = 0; Saturation = 0; Lightness = 67.
8) Change the opacity from this layer into 38%.
9) Duplicate the layer. Change the opacity from this layer into 100%.
10) Drag the mask tube "Music_Notes-Nolver_24042015" to the program Paint Shop Pro so that the mask will be immediately opened. See the example below:


11) Go back to your work. Go to Layers ---> New Mask Layer ---> From Image and search for the mask "Music_Notes-Nolver_24042015".
Choose "Source Luminance", "Invert Mask Data" unchecked. Press on Ok.
Layers ---> Merge ---> Merge Group.
12) Effects ---> Image Effects ---> Seamless Tiling: Default settings and press on Ok.
13) Effects ---> Texture Effects ---> Emboss. Change the opacity from this layer into 69%.
14) Duplicate this layer. Mirror it and flip the layer afterwards (I'm assuming you have installed the scripts for Flipping and Mirroring or you know how to do it). Layers ---> Merge ---> Merge Down. Change the opacity into 61%. Effects ---> Plugins ---> Mura's Meister ---> Copies and use the following settings:


15) Add a new raster layer to your work. Flood fill this layer with the background colour. Go to Adjust ----> Hue & Saturation ---> Colorize: Hue = 199; Saturation = 255.
16) Go to Layers ---> Load/Save Mask ---> Load Mask From Disk and search for the mask 20-20, using the following settings:


17) Duplicate the mask layer two times. Your layer palette should now look like this:


18) Layers ---> Merge ---> Merge Group. Image ---> Resize and use the following settings:


19) Open the tube "Classic_Piano(misted)-Nolver_24042015". Copy and paste the tube as new layer on your work. The layer is already in the right position.
20) Activate the Pick tool by pressing on K. Broaden the layer by placing the mouse pointer on the left center dot and pull the dot to the left. Place the mouse pointer on the right center dot and then pull it to the right. See the example.


Press on M and move the layer a bit to the top. Adjust ---> Sharpness ---> Sharpen.
20) Open the tube "Violin(misted)-Nolver_24042015". Copy and paste the tube as new layer on your work.
21) Go to Effects ---> Art Media Effects ---> Black Pencil and use the following the settings:


22) Effects ---> Art Media Effects ---> Brush Strokes and use the following settings:


Resize the layer with 85%, Resize all layers unchecked. Move the layer to the bottom on the left side on your work. See the finished example on the top.

23) Open the tube "Painted_Pink_Flowers-Nolver_24042015". Copy the layer "Misted and original" and paste as new layer on your work. Go to Effects ---> Art Media Effects ---> Black Pencil, and use the previous settings.
24) Effects ---> Art Media Effects ---> Brush Strokes and use the previous settings.
25) Resize the layer with 85%, Resize all layers unchecked. Resize again with 85%. Mirror this layer.
Move the layer to the right side at the bottom. Duplicate the layer, mirror it and place it on the bottom in the middle. Duplicate this layer, mirror it and place it on the right in the middle. See the example.


26) Layers ---> Merge ---> Merge Down (2x).
27) Layers ---> Merge ---> Merge Visible. Duplicate the layer. Effects ---> 3D Effects ---> Cutout and use the following settings:


28) Duplicate the layer. Change the foreground colour in a gold pattern.
29) Image ---> Add borders ---> 3px white.
30) Use the Magic Wand tool and select this border: Tolerance and Feather: 0; Anti-Alias: Inside, checked.
31) Flood fill the border with the gold pattern. Remove the selection.
32) Image ---> Add borders ---> 15px white.
33) Use the Magic Wand tool and select this border: Tolerance and Feather: 0; Anti-Alias: Inside, checked. Flood fill the border with the background colour.
Keep the selection.
34) Adjust ---> Add/Remove Noise ---> Add Noise and use the following settings:


Remove the selection.
35) Image ---> Add borders ---> 3px red. Select the border with the Magic Wand tool. Flood fill the border with the gold pattern. Remove the selection.
36) Image ---> Add borders ---> 30px white. Select the border with the Magic Wand tool. Flood fill the border with the foreground colour. Keep the selection.
37) Effects ---> Plugins ---> Graphics Plus ---> Cross Shadow: all values on 50, but Intensity = 70; Brightness = 81.
38) Effects ---> 3D Effects ---> Inner Bevel and use the following settings:


Repeat the Inner Bevel with the same settings.
39) Add on a new raster layer your name or watermark. Resize the total image to 650px wide and save it as JPEG.
40) Done!
