No Scraps Forum Style - "Box"

Box

 

 
 

 

This tutorial was written by me on August 22, 2019 using my own ideas.

Any resemblance to others is coincidental and accidental.

This tutorial assumes you have a working knowledge of psp and is written in PSPX/PSPX6 but can be done in any version.

 

SUPPLIES:

A tube that is sitting and looks like it's inside a box

I used a FTU tube by Phillip Ritchie - Mr. Ritchie allows, with proper permission, the use of his art for PSP sig tags, etc...

FTU Tutorial "London"


London

 

 

This tutorial was written by me on 08-17-19 using my own ideas.

Any resemblance to others is coincidental and accidental.

*When working with templates, I use the Manual Color Correction Tool (MCCT):

Highlight template layer

Click on the MCCT

Set top box to original layer color

Set bottom box to new color

Click OK

If you want to use the same color with different shades, simply click each template layer and apply the MCCT

WITHOUT changing the bottom color. This usually works giving each layer a different shade of the same color.

Occasionally you will find a template that this will not work on tho, so in that case simply change the colors each time.

This works great on templates with different shades of Gray and Black.*

 

There is a great mini-tut on how to use the MCCT by Justfi HERE

 

Another way to color template layers:

When working with templates, always Shift+D to duplicate, close original,

then on each layer, select with magic wand (or Select All, Float, De-float), ANL,

close/delete the original, do steps required in tutorial, select none

 

Try it out and see what works for you.
