Preparations:

In PSP 14 & 15 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

  • Set your Foregroundcolor to #ffffff and your Backgroundcolor to #2f3550

  • Double Click on the Eye Candy Preset, it will be imported automatically

  • Copy the selection files to the Selections folder of PSP
