MATERIAL


IMPORTANT NOTE:
 
The tube I'm using is from a tube group - Top Design Tubes, (tuber: Yoka).
Tubes: you are allowed to download them and use them for your private use, 
but you are not allowed to change the name of the tubes,
delete the watermarks, offer the tubes for sale or download
or use them 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 mask, and store it 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. 

Very important: Do NOT merge the picture before I tell you to do so! 


Open a New Image, 800x600 Pixels, color: White.

Go to Edit/Fill/Gradient (white hand)/Magic Gradient, choose the Mode: 10 (white arrow), click the Edit button (red arrow) and choose Palette: 006 (1).

Photo/Blur/Gaussian Blur/Options: 
Radius: 50 (red arrow).
Click OK.

Open your Easy Palette/Libraries (white hand) and double-click the mask 44gitmask (1), which you've downloaded, unzipped and stored into the EP. 
On the screenshot you can see that the mask applied on 
the image. Change the Background color to 96/30/61 (white arrow), and push 1 x the Delete button (alternatively - go to Edit/Fill/Color and choose the color.) 
Deselect (spacebar).

Leave the Easy Palette open/Libraries, but this time you double-click the mask tut_blend_011_maske02.
Keep the mask activated.

Go to Edit/Fill/Image (white hand)/File and find the file of the downloaded goldfill, named a_jb-goldstrip.jpg (red arrow). 
Click OK and deselect the mask (spacebar). 

Open the tube - JdL_Lady_Black Boa-large -, copy (Ctrl+C) the tube (1), activate our main picture (2), and paste (Ctrl+V) the copy of the tube on it. 
Right click the tube on our main picture/Properties/ Position & Size (3)/and go to Size.
Check that you have ticked the box Keep aspect ratio (red arrow) and change the Width to 241 (white hand). 
Now we can change the position of the tube:
Left: 56 and Top: 42 (white arrows).
Click OK and close the original tube.

With the tube on our main picture still activated, go to Photo/Color/Hue & Saturation: Master (white arrow), and use these settings:
Hue: - 23
Saturation: - 42
Lightness: - 10
Click OK and keep the tube selected.

Right click/Shadow, Color: Black and choose the 6th  alternative (red arrow). Use these settings:
Tilt angle: 30
Perspective: 80
Transparency: 50
Shadow size: 100
Soft edge: 10
Click OK and deactivate the tube (Enter).

Open the tube - Yoka-Flowers 270306 -, copy (Ctrl+C) the tube (1), activate our main picture (2), and paste (Ctrl+V) the copy of the tube on it. 
Right click the tube on our main picture/Properties/ Position & Size (3)/and go to Size.
Check that you have ticked the box Keep aspect ratio (red arrow) and change the Width to 457 (white hand). 
Now we can change the position of the tube:
Left: 292 and Top: 60 (white arrows).
Click OK and close the original tube.

With the flower tube on our main picture still activated, go to Photo/Color/Hue & Saturation: Colorize (red arrow), and use these settings:
Hue: 159
Saturation: - 16
Lightness: - 13
Click OK and keep the tube selected.

Right click/Shadow, and use the same settings as we did for the woman tube. 
(Black +  6. altern. +  30/80/50/100/10).

Merge All.


Right click/All, right click/Border, and use these settings:
Border width: 1 (white hand)
Direction: Inward (red arrow)
Shape: Box and Anti-aliasing.
Click OK and keep the border selected.
Go to Edit/Fill/Image and fill the border with the same goldfill we used before. (
