This translation is written with PSP 2018, if you work with older versions some things might be different but the result will be the same.

  • Medhi - Sorting Tiles, Weaver and Quick Mirror
  • MuRa's Meister - Perspective Tiling
  • penta.com - VTR-2
  • Simple Filters - Left Right Wrap

 

Preparations:

  • Copy the Selection Files to the Selections folder of PSP
  • Double click on the Alien Skin Preset it will install automatically
  • Open all other files in PSP, minimize to Tray. NOTE: If you are using different colors you might need to colorize

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 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
