Material


IMPORTANT NOTE:
 
The tube I'm using is from a tube group - Top Design Tubes, (tuber: 1patries) -
you are allowed to download it here and use it for your private use, 
but you are not allowed to change the name of the tube,
delete the watermark, offer it for sale or download
or use it for your own tutorials. 
The copyright belongs ALWAYS to the original artist/designer!
No copyright infringement is intended.

 

Remember to save often!

 


Before we start, you should open the masks, and store them into your Easy Palette. In case you need to freshen up your memory on how to save a mask into the EP - you can take a look at one of my other tutorials, where I explain a little bit more about how to use a mask in PI. You'll find the tutorial here.
Important - in my tutorials my masks fit the chosen background/object ... you achieve this by right clicking any mask inside the original category Mask Library in your Easy Palette. Now you choose the option Fit Mask. 


Set the Background color to Black (red arrow), and the Foreground color to a nice light shade, you pick from the image. I used 153/153/168 (white arrow).   

Open your Easy Palette/Libraries (white hand) and double-click the mask 193MaskkelsWWA-invert (1), which you've downloaded, unzipped and stored into the EP. 
On the screenshot you can see that the mask applied on 
the image (2). 
Push 1 x the Delete button (alternatively - go to Edit/Fill/ Color and choose the Background color.) 

Deselect (spacebar).

Open the tube (1), copy (Ctrl+C) it and paste (Ctrl+V) the copy on our main picture (2).
Close the original tube.

Activate the tube on the picture, choose the Transform Tool (white hand)/Rotate and flip, and Flip Horizontally (red arrow). 
Keep the tube selected.

Right click/Properties/Position&Size (white hand), and go to Size (1).
Check that you have crossed the box Keep aspect ratio (red arrow) and change the Width to 320 (2). Now we can change the position of the tube:
Left: 278 and Top: 28 (white arrows).
Click OK and keep the tube selected.

Change the Soft edge to 4 (red arrow), right click the tube/Duplicate, and open the Layer Manager.
Activate the tube below - in this case you just click on the second picture from the top (1). As soon as you have done so, the blue marks will occur as you can see on the screenshot. Now while the tube below is selected just right click the blue line and choose Properties (white arrow). 
That will open the usual Properties window, and you can choose Position & Size/Position. Change the position to:
Left: 332 and Top: 28.
Click OK. 

Here on this screenshot you clearly can see the changed position (red ring) of the below tube. Change also the Transparency of the below tube to 50 (white hand).

Deselect the tube (Enter).

Open your Easy Palette/Libraries (white hand) and double-click the mask mask-border01 (1), which you've downloaded, unzipped and stored into the EP. 
On the screenshot you can see that the mask applied on 
the image. 
Make sure the Background color (red arrow) is as you wish - in this case Black,- and push 1 x the Delete button (alternatively - go to Edit/Fill/Color and choose the Background color.) 
Deselect (spacebar) and merge All.

Expand sides equally with 1 Pixel in your Foreground color, add some text and your picture is finished :))

 



 

 

That's it! A beautiful picture ... made with PI, two masks, one tube and a nice background picture. HAVE FUN!!!
