Summer Heat
« on: February 10, 2013, 04:03:12 pm »

I've used PSP9 for this tutorial, however you should be able to create this tag in all versions. 
I am assuming you have some knowledge of how PSP works.

Supplies needed:
A tube of choice.  Iím using one by Danny Drake which is available from CDO
Font of choice.  I've used Waterlily

Psychosis - Circular Streaker

1.  Open a new transparent image 600 x 250 pixels

2.  Set your foreground and background to two colours from your tube - one darker, one lighter.
Set your foreground to Gradient with these settings:

Flood fill your canvas with this gradient.

3.  Apply Psycosis - Circular Streaker with the following settings:

4.  Adjust - Sharpness - Sharpen.

5.  Add a new raster layer above your Circular Streaker layer and flood fill it with the same gradient as earlier.

6.  On this new layer, create a Custom Selections with the following settings:

Selections - Invert.  Press delete on your keyboard.  Deselect.

7.  Duplicate this layer.  Image - Flip.  Merge these two layers together.
Apply a drop shadow with the following settings:

8.  Copy and paste your tube as a new layer, move it into position and add a drop shadow of choice. 

9.  Add a new raster layer and move it above all your other layers.
Flood fill with your darker colour.
Selections - Select All.  Selections - Modify - Contract by 4.
Press Delete on your keyboard.
Selections - Select None.

10.  Add your name, copyright and any license numbers necessary.
And you're done :)
