Preparations:

  • Open the Mask and the Tubes in PSP, 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
  • 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)

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!!!
