Plugins:

  • Flaming Pear - Flood
  • Vm Natural - Sparkle
  • AAA Frames - Foto Frame

 

Preparations:

  • Open all tubes and Masks in PSP, duplicate and close the originals. 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
  • Open the Brushes in PSP and export them as Custom Brush ( File - Export - Custom Brush) or copy to the Brushes Folder of PSP
  • Save the Flexify preset to your Hard Drive

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!!!
