  • Tube by Franie Margot

 

Plugins:

  • Alien Skin - Eye Candy 5 - Impact - Glass
  • Toadies - Weaver
  • Mehdi - Wavy Lab 1.1
  • Mehdi - Sorting Tiles

 

Preparations:

  • Copy the Selections to the Selections folder of PSP
  • Double click on the Alien Skin Preset it will install automatically
  • 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 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
