Thank you to all of them.
Without their beautiful creations, no tutorials could be written.

Odette uses PSPX8 and I use PSP2018 to create the tags of her tutorials
but you can follow this tutorials with any other version of PSP
according to the version you use, the result might be slightly different


open all tubes
window/duplicate. Close the originals and work with the copies to preserve the originals
don’t forget to erase tubers’ watermarks before using them
the character tube can be found HERE
place the selection into the folder "selections" or Corel PSP general folder
install all plugins needed
install gradients, patterns.... into the dedicated folders into PSP general folder

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 from PSPX4, in the later versions of PSP the functions « Mirror » and « Flip » have been replaced by --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