PSP 8 Extras
PSP 7 You can not use this script. It only works in PSP 8.

This Tutorial was written in PSP 8. Can be done in 7. I added notes
for PSP 7 users in bold.

It also uses the Flood Filter which you can get here:FLAMING PEAR FLOOD

As you go along I would save the settings I give you for the Presets
so you can create others. Name them what ever you want. I will tell
you when to save them.

Use different colors as each one will come out different. Dont
be afraid to click on the dice in any of the preset menus. Its
fun to experiment and there is always UNDO! Remember to SAVE OFTEN!
PSP 7 you do not have the dice option
