This tutorial was written with CorelX9 and translated with Corel X7 and CorelX3, 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.

Open the font and minimize. You'll find it in the list of fonts available when you need it.
With the most recent o.s., this is no longer possible.
To use a font, you must copy it into the Fonts folder in Windows.

Copy the brushes in Brush folder. Attention, please, every brush is composed by two files, you must place both the files in the folder.
