Hints & Tips
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 from PSPX4, in the later versions of PSP the functions « Mirror » and « Flip » have been replaced by --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


tubes - selection - pattern - images to create brushes

open all tubes and duplicate them (window -> duplicate)
Close original tubes and work with the copies (to preserve the originals)
don’t forget to erase tubes’ watermarks before using them
copy / paste gradient into « gradient » folder of Corel PSP folder
open « dorado » and minimize it to tray. You will use it as a pattern (without installation)
you will find 18 images of « small debris ». Chose some of them to create brushes -> name your brushes

translator’s note : I used only 3 of them....

yopur layers palette looks like this

you have created a new group

in the materials palette, set white as FG color and black as BG color

apply the brushes you created at the begining from place to place

the small dots are visible in the transparent layer

you may change the size and the rotation of the brushes, to show small colored dots

when the result is to your liking, highlight top layer -> duplicate
--> you have duplicated the whole group

you now have 2 groups in the layers palette (I wrote the numbers of the groups in red)

highlight Group 1 -> add-remove noise -> add noise
this window appears

answer OK, and the group is converted to a single layer -> « group - raster 6 »
add noise -> 60 (see step 9)

do the same with group 2 -> add noise / 70 -> « copy of group - raster 6 »

close the eye of « copy of group - raster 6»
highlight "image 1" ( the character) -> layers - > bring to top
add your watermark on a new layer

to animate -> edit -> copy special -> copy merged
open Animation shop and merge as new animation
back into PSP
close the eyes of « selection 1 » and « group - raster 6 »
open the eyes of « selection 2 » and « copy of group - raster 6 »
edit -> copy special -> copy merged
back into Animation Shop -> paste after current frame
image property ; 10
