Thank you Jeany and Colette for allowing me to translate your tutorials.


MarieL kindly allowed me to use her beautiful tubes and brush for this tutorial
Thank you MarieL
 
May I point out that the tubes used here are strictly for personal use.
Do not change their names and watermarks and do not upload them on other websites.
Should you need to use these tube for an other use than personal,
please contact the tubers first.
 

You will need :
the tubes and brush in the zip file here
the plugins EyeCandy 3.1 Perspective shadow
here and Flaming Pear Transline here

Put the filters in your plugins folder
Open the zip file, save the tubes in a folder of your choice and the brush in your PSP brushes folder.
In PSP open the tubes and duplicate them. Close the original images. We will be working with the duplicated ones.
