Thank you Nicole for your permission to translate your tutorials.

Please read my TERMS before sharing this tutorial!

 

Materials:  

This translation is written with PSP15 but can also be made with other PSP versions.

 

 

Plugins:

  • Filters Unlimited 2.0
  • Toadies - *Import into Filters Unlimited
  • Alien Skin Eye Candy 5 Impact - Perspective Shadow
 

Preparations:

  • Copy the Selection files to the Selections folder of PSP
  • Double Click on the Eye Candy Preset, it will be imported automatically

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
