This tutorial assumes that you have a working knowledge of PSP. I used PSP X7 to write this tutorial but it should work with other versions of PSP as well. I try to write my tutorials as plain and clear as possible, but if I get you confused (and, if I do, I am sorry) you can always refer back to the image we are making for reference. Also, this is just a guideline (I write where I place the elements ) but feel free to move them around, or add different elements. Have fun and experiment, it is the best way to learn new things.

      Legend: C/P = Copy/Paste E = Element R = Resize S/F/D= Select All, Float, Defloat
D/S = Drop Shadow Settings: 4 -4 42 9.9 Unless otherwise stated.
