Preparations:

 

From PSP 14 and higher versions 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

 

Colors:

           
#b5cb56 #000000

  • Set your Foregroundcolor to #b5cb56

  • Set your Backgroundcolor to #000000
