Unzip the materials into a working folder you have created on your desktop named Bejeweled. Please duplicate and close original tubes. Use the copies for your work so you will not lose the originals. Place the Masks in your PSP/Mask folder. Place the Selection in the PSP/Selections folder. Place My Favorite Rounded Button Preset in PSP/Presets folder. I have used the plugins Mura'sMeister/Perspective, Bkg Designers sf10 IV/Instant Tile and the program Animation Shop in this tutorial. It is assumed you have a working knowledge of PSP to follow these directions. I have used PSPX7 for this tutorial but other versions may be used.
