Materials

 

The present tutorial is written with PSP 2020
If you work with other versions some things might be different but the result will be the same.

 

Note: In the latest versions of PSP the command
Image-Mirror has become Image - Mirror - Mirror Horizontal
Image-Flip has become Image - Mirror - Mirror Vertical

Note: I use a script for the old commands of Image-Mirror and Image-Flip

and I work with the old Material Properties - in PSP 2018, 2019, 2020

under File - Preferences - General Program Preferences - check Use classic Material Properties
