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: Merry Christmas...



 This tutorial is entirely my own idea. Three tubes that are used in this tutorial are created by Karine Dreams. You can find her website here.

  The other 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.

==========

This tutorial is made with Paint Shop Pro X5, but can be made with 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:
  • African American Girl tube - here.
  • Blue Sky (misted) tube - here.
  • Silver Christmas Ball Deco tube - here.
  • Glossy Cubes mask - here.
  • 20-20 mask - here.
Download the zip file here.

Plugins:
Alien Skin Eye Candy 5: Nature.
Graphics Plus - Cross Shadow.
Unlimited 2.0

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

Alright, let's get started!
