Always remember to duplicate your tube and close the original
C/P means copy and paste as a new layer
D/S means Drop Shadow
Remember to sharpen after resizing
Resizing is always smartsize
*Let's Get Started*
Open template in PSP shift+d close out original, delete the credits resize 700x641,make sure all layers are checked, We can resize later i just like enough room to work.
Highlight rounded rectangle layer : select all/float/defloat add new layer, open paper 6 c/p into selection/deselect,apply Tramages metal Peacocks both settings on 0then apply a fat white gradient glow, delete template layer add d/s.
