Love Never Ends

For an Italian and Danish translation, click on the flags.

 

For Materials, click on the Zip file.

Unzip the materials into a working folder. Open the materials in PSP, copy and close originals. Place the Preset_UserDefinedFilter_LoveNeverEnds.PspScript into your Preset folder. You will need Eye Candy 3.1 and Graphics Plus plugins to do this tutorial. I have used PSPX3 to create this tutorial but you may use an earlier version. It is assumed you have a working knowledge of PSP.

Thanks go to Patries and Marif for the beautiful tubes used. Please visit the tuber sites listed on my Links page. You will also find many lovely tubes in my Tubes section.
