This tut was written on February 18, 2012.
It is written using PSPX; I'm sure the same effects are available in other versions.

SUPPLIES
A tube and a closeup; you may also use a single tube.
I'm using an exclusive tube by Jose Cano, formerly of MPT.
A license and others tubes for this artist may be purchased from PTE.


Resize your tube now, if necessary.
Add a blurry drop shadow to your tube (I used 0, 15, 100, 40, black).
Increase the canvas size 50 pixels on each side to avoid unpleasant sharp edges.


These filters:
Filter Factory Gallery F - Scrambler
MuRa's Meister - Copies

Font of choice (I used "Avalon Bold").

You will also need my selections; download the zipped file HERE.
Unzip the file to your Selections folder.


Choose a darker color for your background color, and a lighter shade of the same color for your foreground.
Make a foreground gradient (Linear, Angle = 90, Repeats = 1, you want the darker color in the center).


STEP ONE


Open a new image, 50 px wide by 400 pixels high.

Floodfill with your gradient.

Filter Factory Gallery F - Scrambler using the default setting (Intensity = 27).

Image - Canvas Size to 600x400, centered.

MuRa's Meister - Copies using the Tiling preset at the default setting.

Effects - Edge Effects - Enhance.

This is the background layer; hide it for now.


STEP TWO

Set either of your colors to black; add a new layer.

Selections - Load/Save Selection - Load Selection From Disk.
Choose ScramblerSelection1.

Floodfill the hearts with black.

Selections - Select None.

Duplicate this layer twice (for a total of three.)

Hide the top heart layer for now.


STEP THREE

Highlight the top unhidden heart layer.

MuRa's Meister - Copies using the H-Tile(line) preset at the default setting.

On the other heart layer, repeat the same effect but change the Shift Y number from -70 to 70.

Layers - Merge - Merge Visible.

Change the opacity of this merged layer to 25.


STEP FOUR

Unhide and highlight the top heart layer.

Selections - Load/Save Selection - Load Selection From Disk.
Choose ScramblerSelection2.

Floodfill this selection with black.

Selections - Select None.

MuRa's Meister - Copies using the Line preset but change the top three numbers from 8, 100, 0 to 3, 0, 100.

Selection Tool (set to Rectangle), carefully draw a rectangle around the middle of the three elements.

DELETE.


STEP FIVE

Add your closeup and tube (as separate layers), moving it into position.

Move the closeup layer so that it is directly above the background layer.
Change the setting of this layer to Soft Light.

Move the regular-sized tube layer below the top layer.


STEP SIX

Highlight the top hearts layer.

Using your Magic Wand, click anywhere in the space between the two elements.

Selections - Modify - Expand by 1.

Selections - Invert

Hit DELETE on the regular-sized tube layer, the merged hearts layer, and the closeup layer.

Selections - Select None.


Add a 2px Selection border using black.

Add your name, any word art, and all necessary copyright information.


STEP SEVEN


For the forum set tag:

Duplicate your 600x400 tag (Shift + D); crop to 600x250.

Add your 2px Selection border, your name, any word art, and all necessary copyright information.

I found it worked best if I deleted the regular-sized tube layer and added it again as a new layer.
It just looked better to me.


For the avatar:

Duplicate your 600x400 tag (Shift + D) once more; crop to 150x50.

I deleted both tube layers, but you may wish to keep them.

Add your 2px Selection border, your name (or initial), any word art, and all necessary copyright information (if necessary.)



Here is another example, using a popular tube by LegendsArt:
(You'll see that I filled both selections with white.)
