Unzip the materials into a working folder you have created on your desktop named Splendor of Fall Days. Please duplicate and close original tubes and use duplicates for your work. Place the ArasimagesFallSplendor.PspSelection in your PSP Files/Selections folder. I have used the plugins Caroline & Sensibility/CS_Reflection in this tutorial. It is assumed you have a working knowledge of PSP to follow these directions. PSPX6 was used for this tutorial but other versions may be used.

Thanks go to Maryse, toSilvie, and to the unknown tubers for the great tubes used in this tutorial.
