Open a 600x250 new image.
Open up your tube of choice.

Fill your new image with a color
of choice from your tube.

Now select your rectangle preset
shape tool.
On your Materials palette,
select the colors to both be
the same color - I used red
for mine.

Now draw out a thin rectangle that
goes across your tag. Convert this
layer to raster. Duplicate this layer 6 times
for a total of 7 layers.
Position in cascading rows along your tag.
Be sure to allow some of your background
layer to peek through between the rows.

Once all the rows are positioned,
choose a different Stroke color on your

materials palette. Fill every other rectangle
row with this color. On my tag I used

white for this part.

Okay back to the Materials palette.
This time choose the same color for
Stroke as the Background. Choose a

smiliar but lighter color for Fill.

Draw out a square on the
left hand side of your tag.
Make sure your width is set at 8.00

keep all the previous rows selected.
Adjust add noise Uniform 75
Select none.

Select your font tool & choose a font
of choice. I used color black for my text

color. Add text of choice to the white
rectangle layers. Convert to raster.

Hide your tube layer for a second.
Merge visible the remaining layers.
Now unhide the tube layer.

Add a new top raster layer.Fill with a color
of choice from your tag. Click this layer

with your magic wand tool.
Selections modify contract by 4.
Press delete. Select none.

Why We PSP Tag

I was reading an article in Game Informer Magazine about Why people play video games. We are a big gamer household. But I couldn't help but think as I read it that a lot of the points it makes can be applied to
the PSP Tagging Community as well.

The article says that games help fill several real world human needs..that exist in all of us.The first reason why is a need for competence. Humans tend to look for control or feel mastery over a situation. People like to feel successful and like we are accomplishing something in our goals. Think about the last difficult tutorial or animation that you did. Or when you learned a new tool or skill in PSP. That sense of accomplishment that you felt..it's along that line.

The second need is for autonomy. We all want to remain independent and have a certain amount of control over our actions. Now we all know how opinionated and voiceful everyone can be in the PSP world. Yet we all want to be ourselves and have our own tag style... a true sense of SELF.It would be easy to lose ourselves and all create tags that are alike in style. Yet we don't. Everyone brings their talent & style to the tagging community and we embrace them for their uniqueness.

The last need is for related-ness. We want to feel and believe that we matter to other human beings; that we are making a difference in some way in the world. This one is probably the biggest one which applies to the Tag Community. All of us have made friends in the community. We all have acquaintances as well. Yet each person has a close inner circle which we keep closer than everyone else. Socialization is an integral part of PSP Community. We all want to share our creations & see what everyone thinks of them. To be accepted for our tag ability and for who we are as people.

The PSP Tag Community brings people together from around the world. By bringing us together, it allows us all to fulfill human needs, make friends & be creative.

This tutorial was written

Any resemblance to another
tutorial is purely coincidental.
For this tutorial, I’m using an image
by Shayne Bohner. It is available at
AIL

Supplies
Image of choice
TreseMask0095
Blog

Plugins:
Toadies 3D Superchecker Default setting
EyeCandy4000 Gradient Glow
Xero Radiance

Open a 600x600 new image.
Open up an image of choice.

Copy & paste your image as a new layer.
Duplicate the image once.

On the image copy layer, apply the two
plugins.
Toadies 3D Superchecker Default setting
EyeCandy4000 Gradient Glow
Black Halo Glow width 3.00

This should give you a fun sketchy kind of
effect on this layer. The gradient glow will help
"pop" it from the image below.

Now on the bottom image layer,
apply Xero Radiance
Strangeness 156
Charm 50
Truth 128
Beauty 255

Add a new raster layer below the image layers.
Fill this layer with a color of choice from
your images.
Apply the mask TreseMask0095.
Merge group.

Duplicate the mask layer once.
Rotate free rotate either direction 90.
Merge the two mask layers together.
Resize this layer 90.

Choose a font of choice.
Choose a font color - a contrasting
color from your tube will work well.
I used the color red.

Type out a short question at top
of your image.
Type out the response at the bottom
of the tag image.
Convert both to raster layer.

Add the earlier gradient glow
to the text.
EyeCandy4000 Gradient Glow
Black Halo Glow width 3.00
Now go back & same settings except
change it to fat this time.

Merge layers visible.
Crop to desired size.
Add artist copyright information.
Save as png.
Thanks for trying my tutorial.
