    This lesson was made in version X7 , but can easily be made in previous versions. Mail me if you encounter difficulties.
    In earlier versions, merging down layers with different blend mode and/or opacity, can result in a slightly different effect

    From X4 up to X6 "Image - mirror/flip" is no longer available.
    Please install the script.
    You find it here


    From X7 all is OK again.
