original tutorial HERE

The tubes have been created by Michel.
Here I used Jet's tube "jet-woman11-juni-2007".
Jet shares her tubes in Yahoo! group Top_Design_Tubes here


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 tubes for any other use than personal,
please contact me first for permission



You will need the supplies here and a tube.

  1. Open your images. Copy and close originals

  3. Open Michel's tube Ligne01. Copy and paste as new layer on your working image


  4. Duplicate the layer twice. Move the lines upwards (see the screenshot below). Stay on the upper layer. Merge down.
    Duplicate the merged layer. Image => flip.
    Now you should obtain this :



  5. Layers palette => merge visible


  6. With the magic wand (mode : add (shift) - feather 0) select the 2 spaces as shown here :

  8. Effects => plugins => Filters Unlimited => noise filter => background noise 70. Apply twice


  9. Effects => plugins => FM Tile Tools : blend emboss (default settings)
    Selections => select none


  10. Now with the selection tool and the following settings :

    Effects => 3D Effects => drop shadow : vert./hor. 1 - opacity 100 - blur 15 - colour #000000


  20. Duplicate your layer. Image => mirror.


  21. Set the original woman's layer off. Duplicate ALL the other layers, but the copies of the woman and the tube AmbaseLign01.
    Set ALL the original layers off. Just have ALL copies visible.

    Copy and paste as new image. See screenshot below



  22. Go back to your working image. Layers palette => delete the merged layer.
    Set all the layers visible.
