What is a PSPTUBE file?

PaintShop Pro is a raster image editor that provides various tools for creating images and editing digital photos. For example, one of its tools, the picture tube, allows you to add a repeating series of images to an image, such as a trail of dragonflies in a forest or a pattern of seashells on a beach.

PaintShop Pro comes with pre-made picture tubes saved as PSPTUBE files in the following directory:

C:\​ProgramData\​Corel\​Corel PaintShop Pro [version]\​Corel_10

Also, you can download more picture tube designs from Corel's website or create your own by selecting File → Export → Picture Tube.... You can also select the "Picture Tube Tool" in the toolbar, select the "Preset" icon, then click the "Save preset" option.

NOTE: For an image to be used as a picture tube, it must be 24-bit and only have one raster image with transparency.
