Preparations:

  • Double click on the Eye Candy Presets they will install automatically
  • Install the Font into the Windows Font Folder (Remember to uninstall after use. Too many fonts will slow down your PC)
  • Open all other files in PSP, Duplicate and minimize to tray. Close the originals.

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 an 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
