Preparations:

  • You will need a side profile tube of your own to complete the tutorial
  • Copy the Selections to the Selections 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:

     
#eae5eb #534e64 #815caa #ffffff #000000

  • Set your Foregroundcolor to #eae5eb
