Jacquie's site is down. Give me a few minutes and I'll try to write up how I did it. I am going to write it out simpler than how the script did it. With the script I had to do quite a few work arounds to get it to work right since you can't increase your canvas size by percentage and things like that. Going to post my siggy of the week and then I'll type up how I do it. It's not exactly how Jacquie does it, but it'll work.
Ok open up your image. Then add borders to your image if you want them anyway. Then make a new file (with just a plain white background nothing else) that is twice the size of your original image. This will be your canvas to work with. Just look at your image size and double the numbers. This is important or it won't bend right.
Go to your original file and make a new layer. Fill that layer with black. Copy your original image to your new canvas. Then copy the black layer to the new canvas. Put the black layer behind the photo layer.
Ok, now to the bending. Take your photo and go to the Wave setting. It's under Effects > Distortion Effects > Wave in PSP X but it might be somewhere else in the other versions. Ok set your settings in wave to the following.
Horizontal Displacement: Amplitude 0 Wavelength 43
Vertical Displacement: Amplitude 1 (or 2 Jacquie uses 2, I prefer 1. It depends on how much you want it to bend) Wavelength 70
Adding the blur and bending the black shadow. Ok, I am not sure if PSP 7 has guassian blur and not sure what to tell you to do if they don't have it other than just add a drop shadow to the photo and get rid of the black shadow layer. But if it does have a guassian blur this is what you do for the last step.
Select your black shadow layer. Go to Adjust > Blur > Gaussian Blur. Set your blur to about 6. Then go to the wave settings and add the wave to this to bend it.
Then flip the shadow layer by going to image flip. Then you just have to use your eraser tool too erase the part of the shadow that is up top.
I did it a little differently with the script, but erasing is easier. I just had to do it different with the script so it would work right for everyone.
Thank you so much!! I'm gonna have to play with the settings a bit. It doesn't quite look like the ones you have in your siggy, mine is more wavy. I'm gonna be up all nite now! Thank goodness DH has the day off tomorrow.. he can watch the kids while I take a nap. LMAO
