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.

Preparations:

  • Copy the Selection to the Selections folder of PSP
  • Put the Pick Preset into the Presets folder of PSP
  • Open all other files in PSP, duplicate and minimize to Tray.Close the originals. 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

 

 

Colors:
