Here you find the original of this tutorial:

This tutorial was created with PSP X2 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.

remember that this plugin works with your materials colors, but keeps in memory the first colors setting from opening the software.
So if you have used the plugins, press Reset to be sure to have the correct colors.
If you press again Reset you can change randomly the appearance of the clouds.
This is the reason why your result will not be the same as my example.
