Somewhere in Time

For Danish and French translations, click on the flags.


For Materials, click on the Zip file.

Unzip the materials into a working folder. Open the materials in PSP, copy and close originals. Place the Font GRADL .TTF in your Fonts folder or open it from your working folder and keep it minimized while using it. It will show up in your PSP Font selection. You will need the plugins Fun House and Xero for this tutorial.

I have used PSPX3 to create this tutorial but you may use an earlier version. It is assumed you have a working knowledge of PSP.

The tubes are from Arasimages, Irene and K@rine_Dre@ms . Please visit Arasimages Tubes and other tuber sites on the Links page for other beautiful tubes.
