Preparations:

  • Open the Picture Frames in PSP and export as Picture Frame ( File - Export - Picture Frame) or copy them to the Picture Frames Folder of PSP

  • Double Click on the Eye Candy Preset, it will be imported automatically

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

NOTE: If you use your own images or tubes, make them the same size!!!
