Preparations:

  • Open all 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

#372624 #d2bcba #ffa330 #ffd093 #ffffff #000000    

Note: When working with your own colors, play with the Blend Mode and/or Opacity at your own discretion
