9 Lives Tutorial



This tutorial is for those that have a working knowledge of PSP. This tutorial was written by me on August 27, 2018 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!
