#10 - Heart of Gold

What you need:

My heart selections and my Eye Candy Corona settings. Download my selections and Eye Candy Corona settings. Put the three .sel files into a folder where you can find them; put jk-heartofgold into the Corona folder under Eye Candy 4000 Settings.


There are no screen shots, so you'll need a good working knowledge of PSP 7.
