Simple Filters/Half wrap
HERE Supplies zip
Open all the tubes that came in the
supplies zip... so If you have to install the plugins
if you don't know about plugins.. I have a
tutorial that covers that.. so check it out.
1. Open the background tube that was
in the supplies zip. This will be the
bottom layer of
the project. Copy and paste as a new layer the Oriental
girl tube onto the bkg layer.
2. Do the same with the Budda tube..
copy and paste it on a new layer.
*remember to rename
all your layers!* Position Budda as I have mine in the
On the Budda layer, set the blend mode to
Luminance (Legacy), then lower the opacity to 22 %.
3. Copy and paste the Pagoda tube as a
new layer.. make sure its above the bkg layer..
below the girl and budda layers. Set its blend mode to
Luminance (Legacy) also and lower its opacity like the Budda layer.
4. Your image should look like the one
below. Notice the layer palette.
5. Merge all layers now.. and go to
IMAGE/ADD border and use the settings below.
magic WAND tool and
select the new white border on the image...
fill with a
gold gradient.. PSP comes with one called
Metal_Brass set it at
45 angle and
1 repeat. *this isnt shown* While the thin
border is selected add a
3D drop shadow on it...
V1- H2 50% 5 blur color
6. Back to IMAGE/Add border and this
time make it 20 pixels, symmetric
checked and in white
again. Select with the magic wand tool
and fill with a
coordinating color. I used # 047D7e.
7. After you fill with this color, go
to your EFFECTS/plugins/Simple Filter/Half Wrap.
8. Time for the last outside border..
go to Image/add border like
before and make it for 5 Pixels like
the very first one you did, make it with white.
Select this white border with
your magic wand tool again
and fill with the Gold gradient. No
drop shadow this time.
9. If you want you can add the gold
corners that I had in the supplies zip.
10. Merge all your layers, and
duplicate the merged layer 2 times..
so you you will have 3 layers
showing on your later palette now...
Use your selection tool using these
11. Make a point to point selection
around the outside of the picture...
EXCLUDING the girl... like I did below
12. On the top merged duplicated layer
Eye Candy 5 Textures/Texture
noise using the settings below.
13. On the next two layers do the same
thing with ONE exception..
RANDOM SEED button each time. SO.. on each layer
you used a
different Random Seed setting. Save
your image now as an
file format and open it in Animation Shop.
all the frames and right click on any frame and go down
animation properties and set the speed of the
animation from 10 to 25 or so..
