Psp tutorial: Merry Christmas (Peace, Joy, Love)


This tutorial is entirely my own idea. 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: 
Girl In Winter Jacket tube - here.
Blue Christmas Ball Ornaments tube - here.

Download all other materials here.
Place the tubes, masks, etcetera in the right folders.

Plugins:
ScreenWorks --- Point Array
Xero --- Sparkles
Alien Skin Xenofex 2 --- Constellation

You will also need Animation Shop.
  • Foreground colour: #0c35d2
  • Background colour: black (#000000)
Alright, let's get started!

Step 1
Open a new image of 700 x 550 px.
Make a gradient with your foreground colour:


Fill your image with the gradient.

Step 2
Adjust ---> Blur ---> Gaussian Blur ---> Radius: 50,00.
Effects ---> Reflection Effects ---> Kaleidoscope:


Adjust ---> One Step Photo Fix.
Effects ---> Plugins ---> ScreenWorks ---> Point Array.

Step 3
Effects ---> Plugins ---> Xero ---> Sparkles:


Adjust ---> One Step Photo Fix.

Step 4
Open the tube "Groundlights". Copy and paste it as new layer on your image. Drag the layer to the bottom left corner.
Add a new raster layer. Flood fill the layer with a lightblue colour. I used #bbcdea.
Layers ---> Load/Save Mask ---> Load Mask From Disc and search for the mask "Vix_Mask437" and use the following settings:


Layers ---> Merge ---> Merge Group.

Step 5
Open the tube "Girl_In_WinterJacket-Nolver_25012012". Copy and paste the layer Girl 1 as new layer on your image.
Resize the layer with 90%.
Image ---> Flip Horizontal (this is the same as mirroring the image).
Adjust ---> Sharpness ---> Sharpen.
Effects ---> 3D Effects ---> Drop Shadow:


Move the girl to the right side.
Layers ---> Merge ---> Merge All.
Copy the whole image.

Step 6
Open the frame tube. Remove the credits.
Edit ---> Paste As New Layer on the frame.
Layers ---> Merge ---> Merge All.

Step 7
Copy and paste the tube "Blue_ChristmasBall_Ornaments-Nolver_06122013" as new layer on your image.
Resize the layer with 70%. Move the layer to the top on the left side. See the final image.
Adjust ---> Sharpness ---> Sharpen.
Copy and paste the text tube as new layer on your image. Move the layer to the bottom on the left side.
Add your name/watermark on a new layer.

Step 8
Activate the layer with the christmas balls.
Effects ---> Plugins --->  Alien Skin Xenofex 2 ---> Constellation:


Activate the layer with the text. Go to Effects ---> Plugins --->  Alien Skin Xenofex 2 ---> Constellation, use the same settings and press on ok.
Go to Edit ---> Copy Special ---> Copy Merged.
Open Animation Shop. Go to menu Edit ---> Paste ---> As New Animation.

Step 9
Go back to Paint Shop Pro.
Edit ---> Undo Constellation, until all constellation effects on the christmas balls and the text are gone.
Activate the layer with the christmas balls again.
Effects ---> Plugins --->  Alien Skin Xenofex 2 ---> Constellation and click 1x on Random Seed.
Activate the text layer text. Go to Effects ---> Plugins --->  Alien Skin Xenofex 2 ---> Constellation and press on ok.
Go to Edit ---> Copy Special ---> Copy Merged.
Go back to Animation Shop. Go to menu Edit ---> Paste ---> After Current Frame.

Step 10
Go back to Paint Shop Pro.
Edit ---> Undo Constellation, until all constellation effects on the christmas balls and the text are gone.
Activate the layer with the christmas balls again.
Effects ---> Plugins --->  Alien Skin Xenofex 2 ---> Constellation and click 1x on Random Seed.
Activate the text layer text. Go to Effects ---> Plugins --->  Alien Skin Xenofex 2 ---> Constellation and press on ok.
Go to Edit ---> Copy Special ---> Copy Merged.
Go back to Animation Shop. Go to menu Edit ---> Paste ---> After Current Frame.
Go to File ---> Save As ---> Save the animation in the GIF-format. Click 3x on Next and press on Finish.

Step 11
Done!
