Psp tutorial: Lady Diamond



The tutorial was originally written by Paola in Italian. Her website still exists and so does the tutorial, but the website isn't updated anymore. That's why I decided to put an English translation of this beautiful tutorial on this website. Her website can be found here.


This tutorial will be written in English.

=======

I've made this tutorial in PSP X6, 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 X6.
