you will need. Download this
zip file that contains the
png image, mask and
filter/plugin I'll be using. Unzip the
filter mura meister cloud and place it in your
plugin/filter folder in PSP. You may use
another image besides the cat one I am using.
I do not know who is the artist/owner of this
image, if anyone knows please let me know so I
can give them proper credit.
Open up the image you
are going to use in your psp along with your
mask. Use shift
D to make a copy and then close out the
originals. You can minimize the mask
image and the png for now. Create a new
transparent image 450 x 450. Set for flood fill
and pick a color from your png/tube image.
I picked the color from the yarn #BBBDED and
then choose a darker shade of the same color.
I used #516C8B. Go to effects and choose
mura miester cloud.
Choose the default settings and it should
pick up the colors from the flood fill. If
it doesn't click on the reset color button.
