This translation is written with PSP 2019 ULTIMATE by Corel, if you work with older versions some things might be different but the result will be the same.

 

Acknowledgements:

Plugins:

  • Alien Skin - Eye Candy 5 - Impact - Perspective Shadow
  • Nik  Software - Color Efex Pro 3.0 Complete
  • VanDerLee Unplugged X - 45 Rectangle

Preparations:

  • Choose a tube of your own to complete this tutorial
  • Copy the Selections to the Selections folder of PSP
  • Copy the Gradient to the Gradients folder of PSP
  • Open all other files in PSP, duplicate 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
