This tutorial is intended for beginners to learn how to use a script.  If you have any questions, please feel free to Email  me.

To do this tutorial you will also need Paint Shop Pro.  I wrote this with  Paint Shop Pro X2, but the steps may also be done in any version.  You may download a free trial at Corel.

Remember to save as a psp file often!

1.  Download the Ripple Ribbon Frame Script:  http://suzshook.topcities.com/8scripts/ss-RippleRibbonFrame.htm

2.  Unzip the file and move the ss-RippleRibbonFrame into the Restricted folder for Scripts that is inside your My PSP files.  You don't need to move the other files that were included in the zip.

3.  Now when you use someone else's script, be sure to read the page and any included text file to see how to set up your PSP before beginning the script.  So read the Script Summary on that page.

Now I will walk you through setting up PSP to use this script.

4.  Open up the image that you want to use.  Here's mine:

5.  SHIFT + D to duplicate.  Close the original.

6.  Image > Resize.  Set width = 350,  (Note:  if your height is the longest side, set height = 350)

7.  Adjust > Sharpness > Sharpen

8.  In the Materials Palette, set the foreground color to pattern, and choose your image as the pattern.  Set Angle = 45, scale = 65

9.  Set background color to a medium color from your picture. 

Now your PSP is ready!

10.  If you cannot see the script bar in your PSP, View > Toolbar > Script.

In the script toolbar, click on the dropdown arrow to find ss-RippleRibbonFrame-00.  Click on it.

11.  Now click on the play button

12.  You'll get this pop-up screen, click ok.

13.  Click on the play button again.

14.  You'll get this pop-up screen, click Yes.

15.  Now sit back and watch the script work:

Here's my completed image:
