This tutorial was written for those that have a working knowledge of PSP (I use
Artwork by Ismael Rac and you can find him at here. Please make sure that you have the appropriate Xeracx artist license to use the same tube as I do.
Tube or image of choice
Scrap Kit: "Techie Love" by Pimp'd Designz and can be purchased here.
Font(s): Up Dock
Here we go!
Open new image, 500x500, floodfill background with white.
Open frame 6, copy and paste as a new layer, resize to your liking.
Open paper 10, Select inside of frame with magic wand, expand by 5 (make sure you get inside the o), add new layer, floodfill with paper 10, select none, move underneath frame layer.
Open metal bg, copy and paste as new layer, resize to your liking. Move
underneath frame Layer.
Open all the goodies that you want to add, copy and paste each as a new layer,
resizing and rotating as you go.
Open your tube or image of choice - Copy and paste, arrange and resize to your
liking. For this tube I duplicated the layer, moved to top of frame, erased any
"hanging over" parts, and only drop shadowed the bottom layer.
At this point, I usually resize if I need a smaller image. I also save both the
original size and the smaller size images.
Add a new vector layer for your text,convert to raster layer, add noise (random,
23, monochrome checked). To make it stand out, use could use either Eye Candy
Gradient Glow or duplicate the layer, convert bottom layer to raster, select all,
use magic wand to select text, expand by 2, floodfill with gray.
Go back through to sharpen and add a drop shadow to your layers.
Add your copyright as the finishing touch.
Save your tag in your favorite format and you are done!!
