I will admit, I expect that you must have some knowledge in Paint Shop Pro to do this tutorial because I mixed steps together that other people would do separately which I felt was unnecessary so I put them together to make it quicker and easier. If you do not understand the steps, simply go over the tutorial again or look at the video to see where you messed up before emailing me.

I would also suggest watching the video version before looking at the text version so you understand the overall tutorial before.

Step 1
Make sure your layer palette is out, if not click F7.

Save the following:
PSD: Taylor Swift

Brushes: Sunvector, Text

Color Scheme: Color Scheme

Extras: Extra 1, Extra 2, Extra 3

Open everything you saved up in PSP. Now install the brushes which I assume you know how to do. Open up the extras in the same order as they are presented to you and minimize them. (This will make it easier for you) And just have the color scheme out in handy.

Step 2
Open up the PSD of Taylor that I made for you and copy it.

Step 3
Open up Extra 3, which is the blank white one and press on your keyboard Ctrl-E. It should paste with the selection lines around it.

Now go to Selection >> Modify >> Expand >> 1 pixel.

After you do that copy it again and go to Extra 2 and continue this. Then repeat for Extra 1.

This step should have been done in this pattern: Extra 3 >> Extra 2 >> Extra 1.

Your PSD should look like this:

Step 4
Now after you have all the borders on Taylor, copy it a final time and paste it back on it’s original picture and go to Layer >> Merge >> Merge Down.

Step 5
Make sure there are no selections and go to Effects >> 3D Effects >> Drop Shadow and make your setings as mine.

Step 6
Now using the Selection tool on the Point to Point setting, make a selection around Taylor like mine.

Make sure you have Smoothing set to 40.

Step 7
Now make a new layer and using colors 1 and 4 on the color scheme and make a gradient. Make your gradient however you want, if you do not know how to make a gradient then make a basic one.

After making the gradient, fill in the selection.

Step 8
In your Layers Palette, move Raster 1 above Raster 2 so that Taylor is on top of the gradient.

Step 9
Now using the text brush provided (make sure it’s installed and the selection lines are still there), fill in the gradient border with the text brush with the color white. Also, make sure you are on Raster 2 while doing this or you’ll be putting the brushes on top of Taylor’s face.

Step 10
Go to Layer >> Merge >> Merge Down and copy your picture.

Step 11
Open up Extra 3, which is the blank white one and press on your keyboard Ctrl-E. It should paste with the selection lines around it.

Now go to Selection >> Modify >> Expand >> 1 pixel.

After you do that copy it again and go to Extra 2 and continue this. Then repeat for Extra 1.

This step should have been done in this pattern: Extra 3 >> Extra 2 >> Extra 1.

Step 12
Now after you have all the borders on Taylor, copy it a final time and paste it back on it’s original picture and go to Layer >> Merge >> Merge Down.

Step 13
Make a new raster layer. Move the new layer underneath the first layer. Fill in this layer with white.

Step 14
Using the sunvector brush, put it on the white layer in the middle in black.

Step 15
Hide Raster 2 with Taylor on it.

Step 17
Now using the Magic Wand tool, with the Mode on Add (shift), select every other White beam.

Make a new raster layer.

After that, using the Brush tool, color in each selected beam with Color 2.

Step 18
Fill in those beams with whatever brushes you want.

Step 19
Copy the selected beams and go to Extra 1 and press Ctrl-E. Go to Selection >> Modify >> Expand >> 1 pixel. Go back to the original picture and paste it. Merge down.

Step 20
Make sure you’re on Raster 1 and select the white beams you didn’t color in. Make a new layer and then color in with Color 5.

Step 21
Fill in those beams with whatever brushes you want.

Step 22
Copy the selected beams and go to Extra 1 and press Ctrl-E.

Go to Selection >> Modify >> Expand >> 1 pixel.

Go back to the original picture and paste it.

Merge down.

Your layer palette should look similar to mine.

Step 23
Make sure you’re on Raster 1 and select all the black beams. Make a new layer and fill it in with Color 4.

Step 24
Fill in those beams with whatever brushes you want.

Step 25
Now unhide the layer with Taylor on it so she appears and you see what your picture looks like.
