This tutorial is a personal creation.
Any resemblance with another one would be only pure coincidence.
It is stricly forbidden to modify tubes, to change their name or take off the matermarks,
To present them on your sites or blog,
To share them in groups,
to make a bank of images, or to use them on lucrative purposes.

Thank you to respect Alyciane’s work and the tubers work.
Don’t hesitate to warn me if you have any trouble with this translation,
and I’ll try to fix the problem as quickly as I can

Alyciane works with PSP 2022 and I work with PSP 2020
but you can follow this tutorial with another version of PSP, however the result might be slightly different

Thank you Garances for testing Alyciane’s tutorials
