This translation is written with PSP17, if you work with older versions some things might be different but the result will be the same.

 

 

Acknowledgements:

  • Tube by Annelies from A&K Tubes Unlimited. Unfortunately she stopped tubing.

Preparations:

  • Open all tubes in PSP, duplicate and close the originals. NOTE: If you are using different colors you might need to colorize some of the files.
  • Copy the Selection files to the Selections folder of PSP
  • Open the Brush in PSP and export as Custom Brush ( File - Export - Custom Brush)
     

From PSP 14, 15 AND 16 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
