Some 8BF plugins don’t work. By using them anomalities can occur or the program can be blocked.

The little free FM Patcher can very often put an end to these problems.

You find it here

* Before you start *

To import presets Eye Candy 5 / Double Click on the Eye Candy Preset, for an automatic installation


If a plugin supplied appears with this icon it must necessarily be imported into Unlimited *


For older versions of PSP:

May be that you are having trouble opening the tubes

Just click OK and the tube can be used.





This lesson was made in Pain shop Pro 2018

but can easily be made in previous versions.

Mail me if you encounter some difficulties. In earlier versions, merging down layers with different blend mode and/or opacity, can result in a slightly different effect .

The option Image - mirror/flip is no longer available in PSP versions newer than X4 - Psp X5- X6- X7 - X8 - X9 and 2018.

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.

Is an easy way to add the old Mirror and Flip options to the Image Menu

Please use the script .

You can find it





You are welcome to take this arrow with you, it shows you always where you are (just click and drag) Have Fun!
