If you want to use them to create a tutorial, you must ask the permission to the authors.
the tubes used for this tutorial have been received in sharing groups
Béa has the permission of the tubers to use them

respect the tubers’ work : never use tubes without a watermark or a signature : they are stolen tubes
the tubes you find « on the web » without the tuber’s name are ALWAYS stolen tubes
if you think Bea used one of your tubes, please let her know,
and if this proves to be true, a link to your site or blog will ba added.
Or if you prefer, the tube wil be removed from the material’s folder
TIP 1-> if you don’t want to install a font -->
open it in a software as « Nexus Font » (or other font viewer software of you choice)
as long as both windows are opened (software and font), your font will be available in your PSP
TIP 2 -> from PSPX4, in the later versions of PSP the functions « Mirror » and « Flip » have been replaced by -->
« Mirror » --> mirror -> mirror horizontal
« Flip » --> mirror -> mirror vertical

translator’s note
I use PSPX9 to create my tag and write my translation
but this tutorial can be realized with another version
according to the version of PSP you use, the results might be slightly differents
don’t hesitate to change the blend modes and opacities of the layers to match your tubes and colors
