This tutorial is a personal creation of Sweety and it is prohibited to copy or distribute it on the net (forums, groupes.. etc), or to use it on commercials sites.
This tutorial was created with CorelX12 and translated with Corel13, 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.

Copy the Selections in the Selections Folder.

Set your foreground color to the dark color, for me #c4a89a,
and your background color to the light color, for me #eedcd0.



Your image must have these dimensions: 564 width - 449 height.
Otherwise, do this:
Open a new transparent image 564 x 449 pixels.
Selections>Select All.
Open your image and go to Edit>Copy.
Go back to the image 564x449 and go to Edit>Paste into Selection.
Selections>Select None, and minimize this image.

Now we can begin:
Open a new transparent image 900 x 600 pixels.

Remember that this filter works with the colors of your materials palette,
but keeps in memory the first settings from the opening of your PSP.
So if you have already used the filter, to make sure you have set the correct colors, press the Reset button.
The result is random and for this reason it will not be the same as mine.
