You'll complete all of the items that go into the workshop and then will put all the items together.
This tutorial is for the ladder. It's a selection tutorial, with a little bit of drawing.
My canvas with alpha selections. You may download it here.
My color chart. Right click on it and save to your computer.
Step 1. Open up the canvas with alpha selections you downloaded. The selections that you'll need for this tutorial are all saved to alpha channel and are in the order that you will load them.
Step 2. Open up the color chart you downloaded. Copy and paste it as a new layer onto your canvas. Move it to the top, out of your way. When you need a color, just click on it with your dropper tool.
Step 3.Add a new layer. Load selection 1 from alpha channel (go to Selections>Load/Save Selection>Load Selection from Alpha Channel).
To choose a selection, just click on the box to the left (it's circled in red in the screenshot) and navigate to the selection you want. It'll show up in the preview window on the right. Then just click "Load."
Flood fill with color #1.
Apply an inner bevel (effects>3d effects>inner bevel), using settings in the screenshot.
Step 4. For each of the next steps, add a new layer, load the selection, and flood fill with the colors given below. Apply an inner bevel to each, using same settings as above.
Step 5. Add a new layer. Load selection 9. Flood fill with color #3. Apply an inner bevel, same settings as before, except change the bevel to bevel #1 (click on the box), smoothness to 15, width to 1, depth to 1.
Step 6. Add a new layer. Load selection 10. Flood fill with black.
Step 7. Add a new layer. Load selection 11. Flood fill with color #2. Apply an inner bevel, same settings as in Step 3 above, except change the smoothness down to about 15.
Step 8. Repeat Step 7 for selection 12.
Step 9. Add a new layer. Set foreground color to null, background to a silver (or gray if you prefer) gradient (one comes with PSP).
Choose your preset shapes tool>circle, using settings in the screenshot.
Draw some circles on the front side of your ladder, where the steps would attach.
Apply an inner bevel, same settings as above, except change the width to 14, smoothness to 15, and depth to 12.
Step 10. Add a new layer and draw two smaller circles at the top, on the black bar. Apply same inner bevel.
Step 11. Delete your color chart and background layers. Merge visible layers. Save as a PSP file.
