Preparations:

  • Open the Images and Tubes in PSP, Minimize to Tray. NOTE: If you are using different colors you might need to colorize some of the files.
  • Open the Brushes in PSP and export them as Custom Brushes ( File - Export - Custom Brush)
  • Double Click on the Eye Candy Preset, it will be imported automatically
  • Copy the Gradient file to the Gradients folder of PSP
  • Copy the Picture Frame file to the Picture Frame Folder of PSP
  • Copy the Presets to the Presets Folder of PSP
  • Copy the Selection files to the Selections folder of PSP
  • PSP 9  Users (or earlier versions): If you do not have the 20/20 mask needed for this tutorial you can download it HERE - Copy the 20/20 mask file to the mask folder of PSP

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!!!
