This translation is written with PSP15 but can also be made with other PSP versions.

Preparations:

  • Copy the Selection files to the Selections folder of PSP

  • Open the Mask file in PSP and minimize to tray

  • 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

In PSP 14 & 15 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

 

Colors:

  • Set your Foregroundcolor to #ffffff

  • Set your Backgroundcolor to #bb0031

Note: When working with your own colors, play with the Blend Mode and/or Opacity at your own discretion

Used Colors

           
#ffffff #bb0031
