This tutorial was written with PSPX8 and translated with PSPX7 and PSPX3, 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.

You can change Blend Modes according to your colors.

In the newest versions of PSP, you don't find the foreground/background gradient (Corel_06_029).
You can use the gradients of the older versions.
The Gradient of CorelX here

Set your foreground color to light color #9ac7de,
and your background color to dark color #066980.



Set your foreground color to a Foreground/Background Gradient, style Sunburst.



In the version executed with PSPX, the gradient looks different,
for this reason, the result of the Mura's Meister filter in step 7 will be slightly different.
