Change Your View

 This tutorial was written

Any resemblance to another
tutorial is purely coincidental.
I am using tubes by
Cuddly Rigor Mortis available
at CDO.

Tube of choice
Slats Template of choice
Mask of choice.
Font of choice

Xero Radiance
EyeCandy4000 Gradient Glow

Open up your slats template &
a tube of choice.
On the template, hold down
Shift D to duplicate it once.
Go to image - Canvas size
& set to 700x700. Makre sure
all layers is checked if needed.

Add a new raster layer above the
template layer. Fill with a color from
your tube.

Now in your layers palette, select the
template layer - making sure it is the
highlighted one. Go to Selections -
Select All - Float - Defloat - Invert.
Then on the Layers, select the color
fill layer. Press delete on your keyboard.
Select none.

Copy & paste your tube as a new layer
above the Fill layer.
Making sure the Color Fill layer is selected,
Go to Selections -
Select All - Float - Defloat - Invert.
Now select your tube layer & press delete
again to eliminate the tube outside of
the template.
Select none.

Merge the layers visible. Add a new Raster
layer under the merged layer.
Fill this layer with a light color from your tube.
I used a slightly off white one. Copy & paste
your tube above this layer & position at least
part of it under the template. Merge the new Fill
layer & the tube layer together.

Apply a mask of choice.
Merge group. Duplicate the layer once to see
the image better.

Back to the slat layer. Add a drop shadow of choice
to the layer. Duplicate once. Resize the copy layer 40%.
Move this layer so that it partially covers
a corner of choice of the main slat layer.
Apply the plugin Xero: Radiance with default settings
to the resized slats layer.

Select a color from your tube for the background fill color on
your Materials palette. Select your font tool.Select a font of choice
to use that fits your tag. Type out words of choice. For mine, i used the words Change Your View.
I used the rotate control on the box around the words to
rotate my text as wanted. Convert to Raster.
Apply EyeCandy4000 Gradient Glow - Fat with Glow Width 3.00
to the text. Add a drop shadow of choice.

Crop the tag to a desired size.
Add artist copyright & name to the tag.
Save as a png.
Thanks for trying my tutorial.
