Butterflies & Flowers Tutorial Part 3

A Paint Shop Pro (PSP) Tutorial by Hafapea

 From the circle...
  • Click on the “New Raster” icon on your layer palette to add a new layer to your image.
  • Name the layer “Flood Fill” and click “OK.” 
  • Select the paint can from your tools menu
  • Change your Foreground color to #d6a4b6l 
    • Left click on the large color foreground square to open
    •  Enter the color # next to HTML: as shown below:
  • Left click inside of the circle selection on your working image to “Flood Fill” it.
  • Add another new raster layer, name it “Bouquet” and click “OK.”
  • Right click on the top of your new image, move your cursor over “Paste” and click on “Paste into selection.”


  • Press Ctrl+D on your keyboard to deselect the selection (or click on “Selections,” “SelectNone” from the menu along the top of your workspace).
  • Left click on the “Flood Fill” layer on your layer palette to activate it. 
  • Press Ctrl+A to “Select All,”Ctrl+F to “Float” the circle, then right click on the ”Floating Selection” in your layer palette and click on“Defloat” on the menu that pops up (or press Ctrl+Shft+F). You can also use the “Selection” menu to “Select All,” “Float,” and “Defloat” this layer, if you'd rather.
  • Left click on the “Bouquet” layer to activate it. Right click on the top of your image and “Copy” this layer.
  • Right click anywhere in the area of your workspace and “Paste,” “Paste As New Image"

Your "new image" should look like this:

  • With this new bouquet circle image activated, click on “Image,” “Mirror." 
    • "Image," "Horizontal Flip" in newer versions of PSP.
  • Copy and paste the mirrored image into the selection on your working image. 
  • Return to the bouquet circle, click on “Image,” “Flip” 
    • "Image," "Vertical Flip" in newer versions.
  • Copy and paste that image into the selection on your working image. 
The selection on your working image should now look like this:


NOTE: The swirl will not look like the one in the picture above.  I dd not notice that I'd had the wrong layer visible until it was too late to change the image.
  • On your working image, with the circle of flowers still selected, “Duplicate” the layer
    • "Layers," "Duplicate" or by using the icon on your layer palette.
  • Click on the eye on your layer palette to close the original “Bouquet” and “Flood Fill” layers
  • Click on “Effects,” “Reflection Effects,” “Kaleidoscope” and change the settings to those shown below: 

  • Click “OK” and then deselect the circle (Ctrl+D).
  • Click on “Image,” “Rotate,” “Free Rotate,”
  •  Tick “left” and type “20” into the box and click “OK.”


Your image should now look like this:

I hope you're enjoying the tutorial and learning lots of new tricks :).  Part 4
