Acknowledgements:

  • With special thanks to the people behind the scenes

Preparations:

  • Copy the Brushes into the Brushes folder of PSP
  • Copy the Picture Frame into the Picture Tubes folder of PSP
  • Copy the 2020 Mask to the Masks folder of PSP
  • Open all other files in PSP, duplicate and close the originals. NOTE: If you are using different colors you might need to colorize some of the files.

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 an 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!!!

 

 

Colors:

     
#c2cdc8 #073449 #000000
