Acknowledgements:

  • Translated into English by ASDwebdesigns

  • Whith special thanks to the people behind the scenes

  • Tube by Annelies from A&K Tubes Unlimited. Unfortunately she stopped tubing.

 

Plugins:

  • [AFS IMPORT] - sqborder2

 

Preparations:

  • Open the Images, tubes and the Mask in PSP, minimize to tray. NOTE: If you are using different colors you might need to colorize some of the files.
  • PSP 9  Users (or earlier versions): If you do not have the 20/20 mask needed for this tutorial you can download it HERE - Copy the 20/20 mask file to the mask folder of PSP
     

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!!!
