Psp tutorial: December Memories


I saw this image in 2010 (created by Niqui), but as far as I know, there has never been a tutorial for this image. That's why 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) - here.
Happy Woman (misted) - here.
20-20 mask - here.

Download all other materials here.
Place the tubes, masks, etcetera in the right folders.
Of course you can use your own female tube of your 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 to #7f0100 and the background colour to black.
Open a transparent image of 800 x 800 px.
Make with your foreground colour the following gradient and fill your canvas with the following 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
Open the tube "Sinedot". Copy and paste it as new layer on your image.
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. 
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.

Step 5
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 tube layer.
Change the opacity of this layer to 57.

Step 6
Open the tube "Happy_Woman-Nolver_22112015" or choose a tube of your own.
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.

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
Open the tube "Text". Copy and paste it as new layer on your image.
Move the layer to the bottom on the left side.
Put your name/watermark on your image.
Merge all layers together (flatten).

Step 9
Open the image "Gold pattern" in Paint Shop Pro. Click on the foreground colour and select the tab Pattern.
Click on the current pattern, search for the image "Gold Pattern" and use it by clicking on the pattern (Angle = 0; Scale = 100) and click on OK.

Step 10
Image ---> Add borders: 5px yellow, symmetric checked.
Select the yellow border with the Magic Wand.
Flood fill the selection with the Gold pattern. Remove the selection.
Image ---> Add borders: 2px black, Symmetric checked.

Step 11
Image ---> Add borders: 25px foreground colour, symmetric checked
Image ---> Add borders: 4px black, Symmetric checked.
Select with the Magic Wand, the border of 25px (Anti-alias = checked; Inside).

Step 12
Effects ---> Plugins ---> Graphics Plus ---> Cross Shadow: default.
Effects ---> Plugins ---> Tramages ---> Tow The Line and use the following settings:


Step 13
Effects ---> Plugins ---> Alien Skin Xenofex 2 ---> Constellation and use the following settings:


Remove the selection.
Edit ---> Copy.
Open Animation Shop and paste the image as new animation.
Go back to Paint Shop Pro and undo the previous action 2x (Ctrl + Z).

Effects ---> Plugins ---> Alien Skin Xenofex 2 ---> Constellation, same settings as before, but click one time on Random Seed.
Remove the selection, copy your image and paste it in Animation Shop after the current frame.
Go back to Paint Shop Pro and undo the previous action 2x (Ctrl + Z).

Effects ---> Plugins ---> Alien Skin Xenofex 2 ---> Constellation, same settings as before, but click one time on Random Seed.
Remove the selection, copy your image and paste it in Animation Shop after the current frame.

Step 14
Save your file as GIF.

Step 15
