This translation is written with PSP X9, if you work with older versions some things might be different but the result will be the same.

 

Acknowledgements:

  • Masks by OBG and Narah
  • Tube by Ildiko

 

Plugins:

  • Mehdi - Wavy Lab 1.1 and Sorting Tiles
  • Toadies - What Are You?

 

Preparations:

  • 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
