  • 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 some of the files.
     

  • 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
