This tutorial was written with CorelX19 and translated with CorelX17, 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.

Duplicate the image (on the keyboard shift+D) and close the original.
The copy, that will be the basis of your work, is not empty,
but it contains the selections saved on the alpha channel.

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.
If you want to change the appearance of the clouds, click on the preview window,
until you see what you prefer.
