This tutorial was translated with 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.

little note about the watermark:
I never ask to put watermark on the versions made by my translations.

I would appreciate that my work as translator was respected too.
For that, I added my watermark to the material (a layer for every language that I translate).
