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 here.

Have fun!!

Burlesque

This tutorial was written by me on June 27, 2020. The results are of my own imagination.  Any resemblance to another tutorial is purely coincidental.  

Please DO NOT claim this tutorial as your own.

This was written assuming you have a working knowledge of PSP.

Please keep in mind that I write the tutorial as I am creating it.

Sometimes I may not explain properly where to place things so please see my example if you are ever in doubt :)

Please read all the Artist's/Designer's TOU.

Anytime you resize an element or tube you should sharpen it.  Go to adjust, sharpness, sharpen.

Let's get started.

Remember to save your tag often in case psp crashes.  I always save my tags as a pspimage.  It keeps all the layers and if you make tags for others you will always have the template.

Open a new 800x800 transparent image.  We will resize later.

Add a new layer and flood fill with white.

Open paper of choice.  I am using paper 31, copy and close the original.  Paste as new raster layer then go to Layers, new mask layer, from Image and locate the mask in the drop down.  Apply the mask and merge group.  Resize the mask by 105%.

Open frame 7, copy and close the original.  Select the top layer and paste.  Resize 55%, sharpen and drop shadow.

Open frame 2, copy and close the original.  Select the top layer and paste.  Resize 50% and sharpen.  We will drop shadow this later.

We are going to start creating the cluster for this tag.

Open element 148, copy and close the original.  Select the top layer and paste.  Resize 15% and sharpen.  Effects, Mura Meister - Copies with the following settings.

Drop down under the preview box:  Encircle
Number change to 20

All other settings are set to default.  Click ok.

Image resize 125% and drag this layer just above the mask layer and drop shadow.

Open element 174, copy and close the original.  Select the rose cluster and paste.  Move to the top center.  Duplicate and mirror vertical.  Select the original sparkle, duplicate, free rotate to the right 90 degrees and move to the center left of the cluster.  Duplicate this layer and mirror.  Select all 4 sparkle layers, right click and right click, merge selected.  Drop shadow.

Open element 35, copy and close the original.  Select the top layer and paste.  Resize 30% and sharpen.  Effects, Mura Meister - Copies.  Just change the number to 8 all other settings are the same.  Resize by 105%.  Drag this layer just above the mask layer and drop shadow.

Open element 147, copy and close the original.  Select the top layer and paste.  Resize 20% and sharpen.  Effects, Mura Meister - Copies.  Just change the number to 12 all other settings are the same.  Drag this layer just above the frame 7 layer and drop shadow.

Select the top frame, with your magic wand, click in the center of the frame.  Selections, modify, expand by 10.  Select each of the clusters we created and hit delete on the keyboard to remove any parts that are showing in the center of the frame.

Keep selected.

Add a new raster layer and move this just under the top frame.  Open paper of choice,  I am using paper 24, copy and close the original.  Select the new raster layer, edit, paste into selections, select none.  Drop shadow the top frame.

Open element 160, copy and close the original.  Select the top layer and paste.  Resize 60%, sharpen and drop shadow.  Move to the right side of the frame.

Open your tube.  Hits Shift+D on your keyboard to duplicate the tube.  Close the original.  Resize 15% all layers checked.  Go to adjust, sharpen and apply a drop shadow for each of the 11 layers.  Holding down your Ctrl key select each layer from 1 to 11.  Once they are all highlighted in Blue go to Layers, New layer group and click ok.  The important part of working with a grouped psd image is to always make sure the Group 1 layer is selected.

Add your copyright and name.

Animating the tag.  Make sure your tag is saved as you do not want to loose it if psp crashes.

Might want to grab a coffee :)

Open animation shop and open Kiya Designs Animation 39.psd

Holding down your Shift + D keys on your keyboard to duplicate the ani.  Close the original and do not save.

There are 15 frame layers  but we need to cull it to 11.  Delete Frame layers 1 and 2 then 14 and 15.  Now we have 11 layers that we need to group.  

Holding down your Ctrl key, click on each frame layer starting from 13 and ending at 3.  Once all your layers are highlighted, go to layer, new group layer.  

With group 1 highlighted, click on the chain link icon.  

Still on Group 1, copy.  You can close the original ani as we no longer need it.  Do not save changes.

Select the tag and paste as a new layer.  

When you paste the animation it will always go to the top of the layer pallet.

Still standing on the Group 2 layer, click on the little white arrow to collapse the animation.  This will make it easier for moving the ani.

Drag the animation down the layers pallet until it above the white flower layer just above the frame.

Resize the animation by 55%, all layers not checked.  Move to the right so it is just left of they white flowers.

Hide all the sub-layers under Sparkle group 1 by clicking on the eyeball until you reach layer 3.

Only frame 3 should be visible. If not, click on they eyeball next to each of the frame layers to hide them.

Group layers are as follows:

Tube group layer 1, sparkle goup layer 3

Go to Edit, copy special, copy merged.

Open Animation shop and paste as new animation for Ctrl + C.

****Back to psp.  

Tube group layer 2, sparkle group layer 4

Edit, copy special, copy merged.

Back to Animation shop.

Edit, paste after current frame or Ctrl + Shift + L.****

Repeat from **** TO **** until you have 11 frames in Animation shop.  It will show you in the bottom right corner of AS.

One you have all 11 frames in animation shop, go to Edit, select all then Animation, frame properties.  

When the pop up box appears change the number to 20 and click ok.

Go to file Save as, gif and click next and next until you hit finished.  I use the default settings.

I hope you have enjoyed my tutorial.  I would love to see your results.
