Animated Tutorials

Hi everyone.
As you have noticed I am now writing animated tutorials.
I would like to thank the amazing Artist and designers for their gorgeous creations to play with.
My tutorials are written using PSP and Animation shop but there is a difference as I mostly use the .psd file for the animation and sometimes, but not often, I will use the mng file. My tutorials are very lengthy. You can always do just the tag and save it as a pspimage file and come back and try the animation part later. If you have any questions you can find me on Facebook.

Have fun!!


I have written permission from Engelshen's Crazy Fantasy World. to use their FTU kits in my tutorials.

This tutorial was written by me on August 12, 2012 and are the result of my own imagination. Any resemblance to another tutorial is purely coincidental.
This tutorial was written assuming you have working knowledge of PSP.

Supplies needed.

I am using PSP X4 but this tutorial should work with any version.

PTU Tube: I am using the fantastic artwork of Elias Chatzoudis. Please do not use his artwork without a proper license. 
You can purchase this at Elias's new store here. I purchased mine through PTE.

FTU Scrap Kit: I am using a gorgeous scrapkit called Be Aware by Vaybs.
Thank you for creating this gorgeous kit. You can download it at her blog here.

Mask: WSL_mask185. You can down load it from Weescotslass Creations here. Save to your mask folder.

Plug ins: None

tube or scrap kit you may need to make adjustments. I am using a drop shadow of
V/H 2 Opacity 50, blur 5 through out unless otherwise stated.

Open Be Aware 21, copy and close the original. Paste as a new raster layer.

area between the ribbons. Selections>modify>expand by 10.

Open paper 6, copy and close the original. Paste as a new layer and move it under your frame.

Select your middle size tube, copy and paste as a new layer. Move this layer
above your paper layer. Position your tube to your liking using your move tool.
Once happy, Selections>invert, Select your tube layer and hit delete on your keyboard.
Repeat for your paper layer. Select none.

Select your tube layer and change the blend mode to overlay.

Add a drop shadow to your frame.

Open element 3, copy and close the original. Select raster 1 and paste as a new layer.
Image resize 90%.

Open element 18, copy and close the original. Select your frame layer and paste as a new layer.
Image resize 80% and move to the top of the frame. Drop shadow.

Image>Mirror and move to the left side of your tag. Drop shadow.

Open element 16, copy and close the original. Paste as a new layer and resize by 70%.
Move to the right side of your frame and drop shadow.

Open your dark pink butterfly, copy and close the original. Paste as a new layer,
Image resize 40% and place on top of your BCA ribbon. Drop shadow.

Open paper 8, copy and close the original. Select raster 1 and paste as a new layer.
Layers>load/save mask and find WLS_mask185. Apply your mask and merge group.
Drag to the lower right hand side but have the side even with the frame. See mine for placement.
Image Mirror, Image flip.

Add any other element you like.

Once happy with your tag, Add your name and copyright and save as png.
