This translation is written with PSP X8, if you work with older versions some things might be different but the result will be the same.

Preparations:

  • Open the Tubes in PSP, minimize to Tray. NOTE: If you are using different colors you might need to colorize

From PSP 14 and higher there is no option for Image - Image - Mirror - Mirror Horizontal
 & Image -  Image - Mirror - Mirror Vertical There is a new option but this does not give the same result except when the tube/image covers the whole image from side to side There is a easy way to add the old Image - Mirror - Mirror Horizontal
 and Image - Mirror - Mirror Vertical options to the Image Menu I have written a tutorial you can find it HERE. From PSP 17 the option is back
