tubes - selection - texture

Translator's note : character -> I chose a tube create'd by Cibi

thank you to the tubers for their great work
open tubes, duplicate them and work with the copies
open mask and minimize it to tray
copy / paste selections into the folder « selections » of Corel PSP Folder
copy / paste texture into the folder « textures » of PSP general 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 from PSPX4, in the later versions of PSP the functions « Mirror » and « Flip » have been replaced by --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 » --> image -> mirror -> mirror horizontal
« Flip » --> image -> mirror -> mirror vertical
to prevent the theft of tubes, they are no longer provided in the ZIP material
the only material provided is : decorations, masks and selections
you will have to use your personal collection

no filter necessary

« Chez Douceur » works with PSP X, I use PSP2018 to create my personal tags and write my translations
but this tutorial can be realized with another version
