~Let's Get Started~

Before we open our program open up the Folder that's is containing the photoshop styles.
Find the .asl file.
Right click on it and copy and then paste it into your adobe photoshop styles folder.
I am using Win7 and mine is located:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CS5\Presets\Styles

Now open your program and it should load them automatically for us now that we've added them

Open a new Canvas 600px x 600px, transparent background.
Flood fill with white.

Open frame_2, copy and paste into your canvas.
Scale down to 80% and rotate 25 Degrees.

Add a drop shadow.

Open Paper of your choice.
I used pp3.

Copy and paste onto your canvas and move below your frame.
Select inside your three frame windows.
Select ---> Modify ---> Expand.
Expand by 3 pixels.
Select Inverse and with your paper layer selected, press delete and then deselect.

Copy and Paste the closeup or your tube and resize and position in one of the two end frame areas.
Once you're happy with where it's at, duplicate, Edit ---> Tranform ---> Flip Horizontal.
Move this new layer to the other end frame.
Ctrl + Click on the frame paper background invert your selection and then click on each of your tube layers and press delete.
Change the blend mode of each to Luminosity.

Copy and paste your full tube to your canvas.
Resize and Position to your liking.
Filter ---> Xero ---> Porcelain
All settings at default except the blue channel, slide all the way to the left to 0.

Filter ---> Xero ---> Radiance
Use something subtle here that just brightens up your tube a bit.

Filter ---> Sharpen ---> Unsharp mask.
All Default settings here.

Type out your name and position in the upper left corner of the frame.

Add a Drop shadow to what's already there.
Click on the inner shadow and change the opacity to 15% but, nothing else
Click on Bevel and Emboss and slide the soften all the way to the right to 16px
Add a stroke. I did a black one at 4px.
Leave the Pattern overly as is :)
