If you need help in installing plugins.. I have a tutorial
How to use
Plugins that might help you..
Here is what were going to create today...
First Open your Woods Bkg tube and hit Shift + D to duplicate the
window.. Minimize the original tube for later use.
Go to your Effects up on the top bar, down to plugins/VM
Use these settings below.
Then go up to EFFECTS/Reflection Effects/Feedback.
Using these settings.
Adjust/ Blur/ Gaussian Blur
Set on 6.0 blur
Next apply the Effects/Penta.com/Dot and Cross
Using these settings.. You tube should look like this in the pic..
Use your color picker
and click somewhere in the blurred layer and pick a color that will
Fill the bottom layer with a color that blends with the dot and
cross layer.. Apply that same filter also to the bottom layer and
Copy and paste the woods bkg tube onto your working image.
Resize it 80%.
Go to Effects/FM tile tools/Blend Emboss.
Use the default settings. Apply it TWICE.
Its a good habit to get into.. Naming all your layers as to what
they are. That way you wont get as confused. Also SAVE often... that
will save you tons of time and effort too.
Open the purpDaisys tube. Copy (Ctrl + C) and paste (Ctrl + V) it
onto the working canvas. Move it over to the left.. some of it will
hang off the side. Go to Effects/FM tile tools/Blend Emboss, and use
the default settings
On the layer palette... set that layer (daisys) on Overlay mode and
the opacity on 80%. See in the sample below.
On the layer palette highlight that Daisy bunch layer and right
click and duplicate it.. then go to IMAGE/mirror. Adjust the
duplicated daisy layer to the right.. some will hang over... its ok.
Also Copy and Paste the umbrella girl.. on to a new layer.. put her
to bottom right. Name that layer too.
Merge all visible layers then go to Effects/Xero/Porcelain, default
Selections/ select all/Selections/Modify/Contract 18 or how ever
wide you want your frame.
Selections/INVERT/ go to ADJUST/Brightness and Contrast/ Brightness
and contrast. Use these settings
Selections/ INVERT again... use a 3D drop shadow with these
While the frame is still selected.. go to Effects/Plugins/Xero/
Fritillary. See below the settings.
Hope you enjoyed this tutorial... till next time
