Woman of the Future

For Italian, Danish and German translations, 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 included in materials in your PSP Fonts folder. Place Arasimages Selections 1 in your Selections Folder. You will need AlienSkin Impact plugin to do this tutorial. I have used PSPX4 to create this tutorial but you may use an earlier version. It is assumed you have a working knowledge of PSP although this may be considered an easy tutorial.

Thanks go to Dakara for the lady tubes and to Sven Geier for the beautiful fractal background Lost used. The clock image origin is unknown; if this is your work, please let me know so I may give you credit. Please visit the tuber sites listed on my Links page for other lovely tubes.
