Preparations:

  • Open the Tubes and Text tube in PSP, minimize to Tray NOTE: If you are using different colors you might need to colorize
  • Copy the Selection files to the Selections folder of PSP

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 a 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

#ffffff  #fa5486 #fcb0c7 #9c3859 #000000
