Tutorial by Jcuttlebear01 aka JoAnn
I do these tutorials for fun and not
for any profit. I use them also as a learning tool to
help others learn the fun and art of paint shop pro.

All things I use are collected, the only thing I claim

have some knowledge of PSP.
This was done in PSP 9 but should work with any.

eye candy presets I made and they will install right where they go.
