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:

Plugins:

  • Mehdi - Wavy Lab 1.1
  • <I.C.NET Software _ Filters Unlimited 2.0
  • Toadies - Weaver and *Sucking Toad* - Bevel I**
  • Simple - 4 Way Average and Centre Tile**
  • Flaming Pear - Flood
  • MuRa's Meister - Copies

    ** Import into Filters Unlimited

 

Preparations:

  • Double click on the Alien Skin Preset it will install automatically
  • Open all other 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.
