This tutorial is for those that have a working knowledge of PSP. This tutorial was written by me on April 20, 2013 and any resemblance is purely coincidental. I use PSP 9, but any version should work. I do not allow my tutorials to be translated and please do not claim them as your own. If you would like to share the tutorial please send a link to my blog.  Thank you!
