Quick 3D Pipe
Requirements: Paint Shop Pro 6, 7
Author: Richie Dumlao



1 Make a 200 x 50, 16 million color document. I used a black background on this example. Set Foreground color to White.

(Example of Foreground color set to White and Background color set to Black)

2 Draw a Rounded Rectangle selection as shown.

Settings I used:
Selection Type = Rounded Rectangle
Feather = 0
Antialias = checked

NOTE for PSP6 Users: If Rounded Rectangle is not available, you need to download the PSP6.02 patch.

Figure 2
3 Using the "Flood Fill" tool , fill the area with Linear Gradient using the following options:

Fill Style = Linear Gradient
Blend Mode = Normal
Paper Texture & Match Mode = None
Opacity = 100
Sample Merged = NOT checked

Under the "Flood Fill Tool Options" tab, follow same settings in Figure 2.

**NOTE: If you want a vertical pipe, set angle to 270
