This tutorial was created for some friends of mine who wanted to begin learning more about PSP.  It is intended for beginners to learn how to work with tubes, fonts, and plugins.  If you have any questions, please feel free to email me.

You will also need the Eye Candy Glass Filter (version 3.1 or 4000).  This is optional.

To do this tutorial you will also need Paint Shop Pro.  I used Paint Shop Pro 7.0.  You may download a free trial at Jasc.

Remember to save as a psp file often!

Before we begin, you might want to study the PSP tool bars.  I have labeled the tools on another page.  Click on the link and it will open a new page.  You may want to keep this page open while you work on the tutorial, to refer to the names now and then.  PSP Tools
