Psp tutorial: Christmas Lights


The original tutorial was written by Sille. Though her website still exists, Sille has stopped with writing new tutorials and stopped with keeping her website updated. Her website can be found here.


This tutorial will be written in English.

===============

I've made this tutorial in PSP X5, but can be made in other PSP versions as well. Don't forget to save your work from time to time. I assume you know how to work with the Mirror and Flip script in PSP X5.
