Plugins:

Preparations:

  • Open all Tubes in PSP, duplicate and close the originals. NOTE: If you are using different colors you might need to colorize some of the files
  • Double Click on the Eye Candy Presets, they will be imported automatically
  • Copy the Selection files to the Selections folder of PSP

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!!!

 

 

Colors:

       
#656565 #eaeaea #000000
