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: December Memories


I've seen this image around 2010 (created by Niqui), 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 X5, 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 X5.

Materials: 
Cozy Xmas Room (misted) tube - here.
Golden Xmas Tree tube - here.
Xmas Prayer Candles (misted) tube - here.
Happy Woman (misted) tube - here.
20-20 mask - here.

Download all other materials here.

Place the tubes, masks, etcetera in the right folders.
Of course you can use a male/female tube of your own choice.

Plugins:
Graphics Plus - Cross Shadow.
Tramages - Tow The Line.
Alien Skin Xenofex 2 - Constellation.

You will also need Animation Shop.

Ok, let's get started!

Step 1
Set the foreground colour on #7f0100 and the background colour on black.
Open a transparent canvas of 800 x 800 px.
Make with your foreground colour the following gradient and fill your canvas with the gradient:


Step 2
Go to Effects ---> Texture Effects ---> Sandstone and use the following settings:


Go to Adjust ---> Brightness and Contrast ---> Brightness/Contrast and use the following settings:


Step 3
Add a new raster layer. Fill it with the foreground colour.
Open the mask "rainbow" in PaintShop Pro. Go back to your creation.
Go to Layers ---> New Mask Layer ---> From Image and search for the mask "rainbow".
Settings: choose Source Luminance, Invert Mask Data checked.
Layers ---> Merge ---> Merge Group.
Effects ---> 3D Effects ---> Drop Shadow:

Offset vertical: -1
Offset horizontal: - 9
Opacity: 65
Blur: 18,81
Colour: black

Change the opacity of this layer into 46.

Step 4
Add a new transparent layer. Set your foreground colour on Pattern and search for the Gold pattern (Angle = 0; Scale = 100). Now fill the layer with the gold pattern.
Go to Layers ---> Load/Save Mask ---> Load Mask From Disk and search for the mask "sinedots swirl.msk". Load the mask. Layers ---> Merge ---> Merge Group. The opacity of this layer should be 69.
Copy and paste the tube "CozyXmasRoom-Nolver_03122013" as new layer on your image.
Open the mask "20-20" in PaintShop Pro. Go back to your creation.
Go to Layers ---> New Mask Layer ---> From Image and search for the mask "20-20".
Settings: choose Source Luminance, Invert Mask Data unchecked.
Duplicate the mask layer on your palette 2x. Your palette should now look like this:


Layers ---> Merge ---> Merge Group.
Move the layer to the top on the right side. 

Step 5
Duplicate this layer and then flip it. Move the layer exactly below the original layer.
Change the opacity of the flipped layer into 36. The layer now looks like a reflection.
Open the tube "XmasPrayerCandles-Nolver_03122013". Copy and paste it as new layer on your image.
Move the layer to the bottom on the right side, on the bottom of the Sinedot layer.
Change the opacity of the flipped layer into 57.

Step 6
Open the tube "Happy_Woman-Nolver_22112015" or use a tube of your own choice.
Copy and paste it as new layer on your image.
Resize the image with 110%, bicubic, Resize All Layers unchecked. Do this two more times.
Mirror the layer.
Resize the image with 110% and the same settings 3 more times. Of course you don't have to resize your image if it's already big.
Adjust ---> Sharpness ---> Sharpen More.
Adjust ---> Skin Smoothing: Amount: 52. Skin smoothing is not necessary if your own tube looks fine.

Step 7
Activate the layer with the candles. Go to Layers ---> Arrange ---> Bring To Top.
Copy and paste the tube "GoldenXmasTree-Nolver_30112010" as new layer on your image.
Move it a bit to the right side, but it should be aligned in the middle.
Adjust ---> Sharpness ---> Sharpen.
Effects ---> 3D Effects ---> Drop Shadow:


Step 8
Copy and paste the "Text" tube as new layer on your image. Move the layer to the bottom on the left side.
Add on a new layer your name or watermark.
Add a border of 1px, black, symmetric.
Add a border of 5px, yellow, symmetric.
Add a border of 2px, black, symmetric.
Add a border of 25px, foreground colour, symmetric.
Add a border of 3px, black, symmetric.

Step 9
Set your foreground colour on Pattern and search for the Gold pattern (Angle = 0; Scale = 100).
Activate your Magic Wand tool (Tolerance = 0; Feather = 0; Anti-Alias: checked; Inside).
Select with your Magic Wand tool the yellow border. Fill it with the Gold pattern. Remove the selection.

Step 10
Select with your Magic Wand tool the border with the foreground colour.
