You will need PSP 7, Eye-candy 4000, and these zipped selections for this tutorial.
You will need to unzip your selection files to your selections folder in PSP if you haven't already created one, create one now in your psp folder. Open up a new 400 by 400 16.7 million transparent image. Add a new layer and name this layer Santa body.
Now go to selections , load from disk and browse to find your folder you unzipped your Santa selections into, find body.sel and click open. You will now have the outlined selections of your Santa's body . You will need your foreground (Styles) color set to black and your background color set to a dark red . I am using #800000.
Now using your flood fill tool and fill your santa's body with black. Don't worry we aren't going to leave it black LOL. Now make sure you still have the marching ants around your santa's body, and go to selections, modify , contract, and use these settings
Now you are going to flood fill this selection with your dark red. This gives the black outline to the santa's body. This is what you should have
Now making sure your marching ants are still around the red center of your santa's body, we are going to add a fur to his suit, I just happened to like the look of this but its really up to you if you want to add this part or not, but go to effects, plug ins, eye candy 4000 and click on fur, use these settings,
Also notice the hair color on the above screen shot, this needs to be the same color you are using for your santas suit so make sure you change that ;0)
Now go to selections, select none and then add a new layer. Name this layer right arm. Go to selections, load from disk and find your rarm.sel and click open. You want to do the same steps as above, so flood fill your rarm selection with black. Go to selections modify, contract by 2 and flood fill again with your dark red. Don't forget to add your Eye-candy 4000 fur using the same settings as above, This is what you should have now.
