Unzip the materials into a working folder you have created on your desktop named Eyes on You Valentine. Please duplicate and close original tubes using the copies for your work so you will not lose the originals. This tutorial was written using Almathera/A Warp, FiltersUnlimited/AFS/MirrorBevel and effects of PSP. To work this tutorial, it is assumed you have some working knowledge of Paint Shop Pro. I used PSP2020 for this tutorial.
