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.

Note on Filters
In this tutorial, we will use filters that give different result when used alone, or importer into Unlimited.
Furthermore, the result may differ according to the version of Unlimited used.
I translated the tutorial both version of Unlimited
(the software version and the version that doesn't need installation, consisting of files in 8bf format).
The version that gave the result similar to the original tutorial was the version composed of files in 8bf format.
In this regard, I would like to reassure people who write that they are afraid to "uninstall and reinstall the software".
This is not che case, but simply replacing in the Files Locations the Filter folder (found in Windows Programs)
with the folder of files in 8bf format, which is located in the folder where you unzipped the files.
(and sometimes is the reverse: ie replace the non-software version with the software version).
here you can find the files in 8bf of the filter (to be unzipped in a folder of your choice).





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.
The Gradient of CorelX here

Place the brushes in Brush folder. Attention, please, every brush is composed by two files,
you must place both the files in the folder.
See my notes about Brushes here


Place the preset in the Presets Folder
Open the masks in PSP and minimize them with the rest of the material.



Set your foreground color to #ceba99,
and your background color to #563a1f.



Set your foreground color to a Foreground/Background Gradient, style Linear.



1. Open CanalAlpha_Narah.
Window>Duplicate or, on the keyboard, shift+D to make a copy.



Close the original.
The copy, that will be the basis of your work, is not empty,
but contains the selections saved on the alpha channel.

Effects>Plugins>Mura's Meister - Cloud, default settings.



remember that this plugin works with the colors of your Materials,
but keeps in memory the first settings used after the opening of PSP.
So, if you have already used the plugin, press Reset to be sure to have your colors.
The result is random and therefore 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'll see the result you like better.

2. Layers>Duplicate.
Image>Resize, to 50%, resize all layers not checked.

Effects>Plugins>Filters Unlimited 2.0 - Toadies - What are you, default settings.
this is the result using the version of Unlimited composed of files in 8bf format,
the same as the original tutorial result



if you use the software version, you'll have this



Effects>Plugins>Filters Unlimited 2.0 - Tile & Mirror - Distortion Mirror (vertical), default settings.
this is the image as it appears in the original tutorial,
and using the version of Unlimited composted of files in 8bf format.



This is the window you'll get when using the software version of Unlimited



You decide whether to replace the version in the File Locations.
Alternatively, before applying the filter (solution also valid for Toadies filter),
you could set your background color to white:
you will get a result closer to that of the original tutorial
