a) Problems logging
in to members area ?
There are only 3 things that can prevent you from logging
in to our members area.
1) Make sure that you do not have a typing error. The
password displays as *'s and can be a source of typing
errors as you cannot see what you are entering. The logins
and passwords are NOT case sensitive, so you need not
worry about that.
2) Make sure that you are entering the login and password
the correct way around. This is
the most common error that we see our members making.
They enter their password as their login .. and their
login as their password.
3) We use a session cookie to keep your logged in session
"alive" for longer than the browsers default
of 10 minutes. So please make sure that your PC can accept
cookies. If you are running a software firewall (like
Zone Alarm, or Norton Internet Security, or Sygate), or
you are running Windows XP with its built-in firewall
activated, then you need to change the configuration of
the firewall to allow cookies from our site. In Internet
Explorer you can add our web site to your list of "trusted
b) Where do we get
our tubes from ?
ALL of our tubes come from 3 sources.
1) We make them ourselves .. either mouse-drawn, or
hand drawn and then scanned and tubed.
2) They come from our own photographs, or photographs
belonging to our personal friends.
3) A very few come from "royalty free" graphics
c) May I use
your tubes for commercial sites ?
The answer in short is NO. This applies to our free area
as well as our members area. None of our tubes may be
used for any form of commercial gain. This includes commercial
web sites, collections of graphics that are to be sold,
Any/all exceptions to this rule have been specifically
granted in writing by us.
d) May I use your
tubes on my personal web site ?
YES .. we have no problem with our tubes being used on
personal web sites. We have hundreds of members who are
using our tubes on their own sites, or making email signature
tags for themselves or their friends, etc etc. We do not
insist on linking back to our site ... however, ALL links
are greatfully accepted :-)
e) How do I download
your free tubes ?
The following assumes you are using Internet Explorer
6 and that your mouse is set for a right handed person..
1) Go to http://www.psp-tubes.com/free_psp_tubes.asp
.. this is the main index page for our free area.
2) Click once with your mouse on the picture of the bird
(top right of the table of theme pictures). A new page
will load which is http://www.psp-tubes.com/birds_tubes.asp
and on which you will find the free tubes for this theme
... in this case 3 of them.
3) To download the tube .. you right-click once in the
picture frame and select "Save target as..."
from the menu that drops down. Do NOT pick "Save
picture as..." as that will just save the jpg picture
instead of downloading the tube file. You then select
the folder on your PC where you want it to go .. and then
hit the "Save" button. It will then download.
You may need to export them into your PSP7 after you
have downloaded them. We have a tutorial on how to do
that in our tutorials section at http://www.psp-tubes.com/tutorials_exporting_tubes.asp
We also have some tutorials in our tutorial area that
you may find interesting if you are new to tubing .. http://www.psp-tubes.com/psp_tutorials.asp
is where you will find them.
f) I have downloaded
some tubes, but I cant seem to use them. What do I do
All of our tubes are PSP6 and PSP7 compatible. If you
are using PSP7 you will need to "export" any
tubes you download from our site into your PSP before
you will be able to use them. Its an extremely easy process
and we have written a tutorial on how to do it at http://www.psp-tubes.com/tutorials_exporting_tubes.asp
