1. Open up my template and the render in psp.
Duplicate the template and close the original. Delete the top (TOU) layer. Flood fill the
bottom layer (raster 1) with white.
2. Copy and paste the render as a new layer; move
the render layer underneath the template layer. Rotate render layer to the right, 90%.
Resize the render layer by 90%. Hide the render
layer. On your template layer, using your magic wand, click anywhere "outside"
of the template. Expand selection by 2. Go back to your render layer and hit delete.
Deselect. Unhide the render layer. The render should now look like this:
3. Hide the render layer (again LOL), and go back
to the template layer. Click inside each one of the areas as shown below (hold your shift
button down while you click in each rectangle to select them all at the same time). Expand
selections by 2 (selections > modify > expand > 2)
4. Activate your render layer, and click delete.
Selections > Select None. You should have this now:
5. Delete the template layer. Duplicate the render
layer. Working on the top render layer: Defloat the render (selections > select all,
selections > float, selections > defloat). Expand by 2 (selections > modify >
expand > 2). Add a new raster layer, flood fill inside the selection with black
(#000000), then move the filled layer below the top render layer. Hide all layers but
these two and merge them visible. Add a drop shadow: H&V 1, Opacity 50, Blur 7.
6. Unhide the bottom render layer. Apply a gaussian
blur of 6. Apply Cybia Screenworks: Dot Screen w/ the following settings:
7. Using your deformation tool, move this layer up
and to the left. Lower layer opacity to 60. It should look like this:
8. Add your tube on a new layer. Resize and
position your tube. Give your tube layer a drop shadow of H&V: 3, Opacity: 65, Blur:
12. Turn off your white layer and merge visible
layers. Turn white layer back on. Duplicate your merged layer. On the original layer,
resize by 105%. Apply a Guassian Blur of 4%. Apply Cybia Screen Dots: Dot Screen, but
change the setting to 50. Lower the opacity of this layer to 24.
13. On the copy of the merged layer, moved down and
to the left. Crop as needed. Add your text, your name and the artists' copyright info.
Give your text and name the same blur. Add the artists copyright for the tube and for the
render. If you do not already have a Darren Hiles License, then please use the correct
