This tutorial was written by Mizteeque on November 8th 2015
written in psp9 but any version should work
any resemblance to other works is entirely coincidental

Open blank canvas 800 x 800

convert to raster
select all, float, defloat, 
make your shape layer active, right click in the layer palette
