- 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.
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:
