This tutorial will be written in English.

==========

I've made this tutorial in PSP X2, but can be made in other PSP versions as well.

Materials:
https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-fcOXsFCXduE/UpXJmv073EI/AAAAAAAAFKY/YYXn_kSUBdU/s200/4shared_logo_500x480.png
Plugins:
Penta.com - VTR2.
Texturizer.
Both plugins are included in the ZIP file.

I am assuming you know the basics of Paint Shop Pro and where the tools can be located.

Preparation
  • Activate your tubes, duplicate them (shift-D) and close the originals.
  • I always open all of my tubes and close them as I use them.
  • None of them are used more than once so you can close each one after use.
  • Some of the tubes have the actual tube in the middle layer, make sure you are in this layer before copying.
  • Put the pspselection file in your Selections folder.
  • Put the plugins in your plugins folder.

Ready? Let's begin!
