This tutorial was Written on August 25/09 by Donna at Donna's Basic Tutorials.
I am using Paint Shop Pro 8.
Any resemblance to another Tutorial is purely coincidental.
I used the wonderful artwork of Ismael Rac. You can purchase his tubes at AMI.
Template 97 by BlissfullyBeth here.
Font used is "BrushScrD"
Let's begin by opening a new image 600x600
Rotate all the pieces from the template clockwise 90 & add each as a new layer where I have mine.
Color each as you wish to match your tube or tubes.
On the Raster 1 layer use a mask of choice.
Give the wording & the doodles a dropshadow of choice.
Using your magic wand click inside the large grey frame.
Now copy a tube of choice & add as a new layer into the large grey frame, then go to selections, invert delete, selections, select none.
Drop tube below the large grey frame layer.
Give the tube & the large grey frame the same dropshadow.
Go back to the tube layer, Adjust, Softness, Soft Focus with these settings:
Focus: softness 50, Edge importance 50
Make sure include scattered light is checked off.
Halo: amount 50, halo 50, halo visibility 50.
Add artist copyright & your name.
(Crop the sides a bit.)
Save as png & you're done.
Thanks for trying my tutorial.
