Add any other element you like. 

Add your copyright and name.  If you do not want to animate, save as png.

Ok you might want to take a coffee break about now lol.

On to the animation.

There is going to be two parts for the animation.  The fog animation of Simone's and optional the candle animation on the tube.

Open animation shop and open Simone's animation 320 mng.  Note on the bottom right corner that you have 21 frames.  We will need this many frames for all parts of our animation.

Select raster 1 and flood fill it with white.

Close off all the layers above the Stain glass layer (click on the eyeball beside each layer.  Copy, Copy special, and Copy Merge.

Go to your animation shop and paste as a new animation, ctrl + V.  Now we will need 21 frames to match Simone's animation.  Holding down your Shift + ctrl tap your L until you have 21 frames.  It will show in the bottom right of animation shop.  

Select all.  Click on Simone's animation and select all (ctrl + A) and copy (ctrl + C).  Back to the bottom part of your animation.

We want to paste into selected frames. (ctrl + E).  It is going to be on the tip of your mouse pointer.  Place the animation on the left middle glass pane.  Repeat the pasting of animation into selected frames and this time place on the right pane in the middle.  Repeat paste into selections one more time this time paste it on the top portion of the middle glass pain.  See my example.  

Please keep in mind if you do not like the placement of your animation just hit ctrl + Z and repeat the paste into selected frames.

You now can close off Simone's animation.

Back to psp.

Select your top layer, view, view all.  This will unhide all your layers.  Now close off the stain glass layer, mask layer and white background. 

If you do not want to animate the candles, Select all (very important) Image, copy special and copy merge.  

Back to animation shop, paste as new animation, ctrl + V and then hold down shift + ctrl and tap the L until you have 21 frames.  Select all and copy.  Select your bottom animation. (the one with Simone's animation).  Select all and paste into selections ctrl + E.  Place the top portion of your tag on the bottom so it looks like the one in psp.  Remember Ctrl + Z is your best friend if you do not like the placement lol.  Skip the animated candle portion and go down to how to save.

If you do want to animate the candles, please do the following:

**Note**  Please read the TOU of the artist for the tube you are using as some artist do not allow animation.

Duplicate your tube layer twice to you have 3 layers.  Hide the top two layers.

Using your zoom tool, zoom in so the candle flames are easy to see.

Select your free hand tool with the following settings:


Make sure you have marching ants around all 3 flames.  

Draw around each flame.  see below.


Once this is completed, go to effects, plug ins, eyecandy 5, nature, fire with the following settings and click ok.  Do not deselect.



Select tube layer 2 and unhide it by clicking on the eyeball and repeat the eye candy nature, fire all settings the same but hit random seed.  Repeat this step for tube layer 3.  Now you can deselect your sections.

Almost there lol.

Hide your two top tube layers again.

Select all, (very important) Image, copy special copy merged.  Back to animation shop,  Paste as new animation ctrl + V.

Back to psps.  Hide tube layer 1 and make tube layer 2 visible.  Copy special, copy merged.  Back to animation shop.  Select the animation you just pasted, make sure frame 1 is highlighted (it will have blue around it) and paste after current frame ctrl + shift + L.  

Back to psp. Hide tube layer 2 and make tube layer 3 visible.  Copy special, copy merged.  Back to animation shop.  Select the animation you just pasted, make sure frame 2 is highlighted (it will have blue around it) and paste after current frame ctrl + shift + L. 

Now you should have 3 frames.  We are going to need 21 frames to match the bottom animation.  Select all, copy ctrl + C.  Select the last frame and paste after current animation ctrl + shift + L.  Repeat the select last frame and paste after current frame until you have 21 frames.

Once you have 21 frames, select all, ctrl + A and copy Ctrl + C.  Select your first animation (the one with the fog on it) and select all ctrl + A and paste into current animation ctrl + E. 

You now can close off the second part of the animation as it is no longer needed.

View your animation by clicking on the film icon next to the arrow with the ?.  Once happy with your animation.  Save as GIF  

Click on save as, name your tag, and the options box will pop up after you click ok.  Click in customize and the optimization tab.  Only the 3 middle boxes should be selected.  Click next, next, next and finished.
