This tutorial isn't based on the tube or the kit.
It's a tutorial to have a cool lights effect for any kind of forum set.;)
This tutorial is borne from my own manipulated lil' mind.
Any similarity to any other tutorial(s) is purely coincidental.
This tutorial was written for those who have a working knowledge of PSP
and was written using PSP XI, tho' any version should work.
Scrapkit: Rockalicious from PinkCandyDesigns.
Any other kit will work as well, as long as it has
stage lights like the ones I've used.
Tube: Ville Valo from the always wonderful,
always amazing Arthur Crowe.
This tube is exclusive to my Dark Light site
& can only be earned in the forum.
Any tube can be used, provided you have a license & bought it.
Never use any artwork unless you have a license to do so & have purchased it.
* On a side note, it should be stated that Dark Light is NOT a tagging site/
community, but we do have a few exclusives for the few who do tag or
make graphics. This helps kill time while waiting on HIM news. ;)
Anyone is welcomed to join us. If you're not a HIM fan yet,
we'll make you one. lol
Texture: of choice.
Filters: Xero- Radiance
DBS Flux- Bright Noise
Eye Candy 5: Impact- Backlight
Eye Candy 4000 Gradient Glow
Drop shadow used in this tutorial is 2 4 48 4.
Save your progress often.;)
Let's do this! =)
For the banner, start with a new image, 600 X 225 px.
And for the avi 150 X 200 px. Flood fill both black.
Copy & paste your texture of choice into both
(you can resize it for your avi, if needed).
For each layer, click the the dot twice to change the noise a bit.
When done, close the top two layers.
Name them noise border 1, 2 & 3.
Add another layer & flood fill it with a darker colour or gradient.
Then on the next tab, change the direction of the light,
so its shines directly (straight) down:
* On the third tab, I kept the settings as they were for all 3 layers.
Go back to lights 1.
Leave the random seed as is, we won't use it at all.
Again, leave the random seed as is.
