No Scraps "Beach Babe"


Beach Babe


 


 

This tutorial was written by me on April 15, 2018 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 PSPX6.

 

SUPPLIES:

Tube 16-3 by Dean Yeagle - tube/license currently available at CDO

"Beach Bum" FTU scrap kit by Inzpired Creationz - Unfortanetly, IC is no longer offering kits, so please use a suitable replacement

*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.

This will be a quick and easy tag with only 4 settings:

#2_8_17_3_0_14_White_248_28_63

DS_0_0_100_5_Black

 

**Note: I used the Manual Color Correction tool for this tag to change the layer colors. Since each layer is a different shade of Gray or Black, the same color will show different on each one. Simply highlight the first layer, click on the MCCT, set top box to color from tag layer, the bottom box to target color (in this tag it's #426409). Now simply highlight each template layer and click the MCCT, OK.

you will have to only change the top box color for the White Hearts.

***I went thru and changed all the colors except the White Hearts FIRST so my layers colors would all change the right way. Then changed the White Hearts.***

If you do the selection method to color your tag, you will have to choose a new color each time.**
