Christmas tree

Here you find the original of this tutorial:

This tutorial is a creation ©Talanat and cannot be copied on other sites nor be offered for download.
The same applies to my translation.
This tutorial was created using PSP X6 but it can also be made using other versions of PSP.
Since version PSP X4, Image>Mirror was replaced with Image>Flip Horizontal,
and Image>Flip with Image>Flip Vertical, there are some variables.
In versions X5 and X6, the functions have been improved by making available the Objects menu.
In the latest version X7 command Image>Mirror and Image>Flip returned, but with new differences.
See my schedule here

To translate this tutorial I used PSP X et PSP X2.
