Preparations:

  • Open all the Tubes and Images in PSP, minimize to try. 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

  • Copy the Script file to the Scripts-Restrected folder of PSP

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

  • Open the Brush in PSP and export as Custom Brush ( File - Export - Custom Brush)

From PSP 14, 15 AND 16 there is no option for Image - Mirror - Mirror Horizontal ( Image - Mirror in previous PSP Versions) & 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!!!
