Unzip the materials into a working folder you have created on your desktop named Feathers of Fall. Please duplicate and close original tubes and use duplicates for your work. I have used the plugins VM Instant Art/Three Cuts, Andromeda/Perspective, Filter Attacks and Mystic Nights/Frosted Glass in this tutorial. Place the annesska-a1 gradient in your PSP/Gradients folder. Place the ArasimagesFeathers of Fall.pfp in the following file path: My PSP Files/Plugins/Andromeda-serie portable/Perspective-Presets/andromeda/02Full Canvas/23Freeform folder. 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.
