Too Loud

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 Font in your Fonts folder and MaskBJ3 in your Mask folder. You will need the plugins Graphics Plus and Filters Unlimited for 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 K@rine_Dreams and Nikita of Reveries for the beautiful tubes used. GoldOfFall comes from this website, Arasimages under Tubes/Nature. Please visit the tuber sites listed on my Links page.
