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 Animabelle’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

tubes - masks - selection

open all your tubes into PSP and duplicate them. Work with the copies to preserve orignals
open the masks and minimize them to tray
copy / paste selections into the folder « selections » of Corel PSP General folder
double click on the presets to install them

Open all images with PSP, duplicate them and close the originals.

Animabelle works with PSPX9, I work with PSPX9 too
but you can follow the steps with another version of PSP

use the Dropper tool to pick up ..... colors into your tube
Animabelle chose these colors
color 1 -> ForeGround color -> #669eb9
color 2 -> BackGround color -> #d4e5ec
color 3 -> #48738c
Don't hesitate to change the colors and the blend modes of the layers,
according to your tubes and images

« Mirror » --> mirror -> mirror horizontal
« Flip » --> mirror -> mirror vertical
