This translation is written with PSP 18 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.

 

 

Plugins:

  • Simple - Half Wrap & Blintz

  • Crescent Moon - CutGlass

Preparations:

  • Open the Tubes in PSP, minimize to tray. NOTE: If you are using different colors you might need to colorize some of the files
  • Copy the Deformation Preset to the Deformations Map Folder of PSP
  • Double Click on the Eye Candy Presets, they will be imported automatically
  • Double click on the font (ttf) to open. Minimize to tray, you can use it now in PSP. Note: If you are using PSP13 or higher in combination with Windows 7 or 8 you need to install the font to the Font folder of Windows ( Double click on the Font, click on Install)
  • Copy the Selection 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
