Any resemblance with another one would be only pure coincidence.

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.

open all the tubes into PSP and duplicate them. Work with the copies to preserve orignals
open the mask and minimize it to tray
copy / paste mask into the folder « mask » of Corel PSP General folder
double click on the presets to install them ( or import )

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

Colors
use the Dropper tool to pick up the colors into your tubes
Cloclo chose these colors

color 1 -> ForeGround color -> #ffcdc9

according to your tubes and images
