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

 

 

Preparations

Duplicate all the tubes and work with the copies to preserve the originals.

Place the selections into your Selections folder of PSP.

Place the texture into your Textures folder of PSP.

Install the font to your Windows Fonts or -
If you use a font viewer software open it with your software - the font will be available in your PSP
