My Wedding Day

For an Italian, Dutch, Danish and German 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. Open the text.png file in your workspace. File/Export it as a Custom Brush. Plugins used in this tutorial are dbs flux/MosiacRipple, FiltersUnlimited2.0/Buttons&Frames and Mura's Meister/Prospective Tiling. It is assumed you have a working knowledge of PSP to follow these directions. NOTE: Image/Mirror is now Image Horizontal in PSPX4 and PSPX5 and will flip your image in place so you will have to move it using the move tool or arrow keys. Older versions of PSP will mirror the image for you.

Thanks go to Roby2765 for the lovely woman tube and the unknown tubers of the various elements used.
