Preparations:

  • Open The Tubes and the The Image  in PSP  NOTE: If you are using different colors you might need to colorize some of the files.
  • Open the Brushes in PSP and export them as Custom Brush ( File - Export - Custom Brush) or copy them to the Brushes folder of PSP
  • Copy the Picture Frame to the Picture Frames folder of PSP
  • Copy the Selection files to the Selections folder of PSP
  • Copy the Raster Deform Preset to the Presets folder of PSP

Note: If you do not have the Raster Deform tool ( PSP 13 and newer) you can add it to your toolbar. Right click with your mouse in the middle of your PSP Screen, click on Customize, Click on Tools en look in the Menu for the Deform tool . Drag the tool to your Toolbar. It is now ready for use.

From PSP 14, 15 AND 16 there is no option for Image - Mirror & Image -  Flip There is a new option but this does not give the same result except when the tube/image covers the whole image from side to side There is a easy way to add the old Mirror and Flip options to the Image Menu I have written a tutorial you can find it HERE. From PSP 17 the option is back

NOTE: If you use your own images or tubes, make them the same size!!!
