    This tutorial was created with PSP 2020, can be done with previous versions,

    The alpha channel is compatible with pSP7

    If you can't open canal_alpha: Place the selections in your PSP selections folder

    Place the PSP scripts and gradients in the corresponding "regulated" folder.

    Most of my filters are in Unlimited, check the filter folder, some work outside of it.

    Open the mask on the PSP.

    Duplicate the material and work on the copies.

    Remove signatures from tubes before use
