This translation is written with PSP X8, if you work with older versions some things might be different but the result will be the same.

 

Acknowledgements:

  • Tube by Thafs
  • Mask by Narah

 

Plugins:

  • VM Natural - Weave Distortion & Acid Rain
  • MuRa's Meister - Perspective Tiling

 

Preparations:

  • Open the Tubes and the Mask in PSP, minimize to Tray. NOTE: If you are using different colors you might need to colorize
  • Copy the Selection files to the Selections folder of PSP

From PSP 14 and higher 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
