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!!

Champagne Wishes

This tutorial was written by me on July 6, 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 :)

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 750x800 transparent image.  We will resize later.

Add a new layer and flood fill with white.

Open paper of choice.  I am using paper 41, 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 element 189, copy and close the original.  Select the top layer and paste. Resize 80%.

Open frame 11, copy and close the original.  Select the top layer and paste.  Resize 50% and sharpen.  Move to the top center of the mask.  Using your magic wand, click in the center of the frame.  Selections, modify, expand by 5.  Add a new raster layer and move this under the frame.  Open paper of choice.  I am using paper 39, copy and close the original.  Select the new raster layer, edit, paste into selections.  Select none and drop shadow the frame.

Open element 149, copy and close the original.  Select the top layer and paste. Drag this layer under the frame and paper layer.   Resize 50% and sharpen.  Move to the top left of the frame.  Duplicate and mirror.  Drop shadow each layer.

Open element 161, copy and close the original.  Select the top lilac layer and paste. Resize 70% and sharpen.  Move to the left of the frame over the lilac.  Duplicate and mirror.  Drop shadow each layer.

Open element 110, copy and close the original.  Select the top mask layer and paste.  Resize 60%, sharpen and drop shadow.  Move to the bottom left of the frame.  Duplicate and move to the right bottom of the frame.

Open element 73, copy and close the original.  Select the top layer and paste.  Resize 30%, sharpen and drop shadow.  Move to the lower left of the frame.

Open element 156, copy and close the original.  Select the top layer and paste.  Resize 30%, sharpen and drop shadow.  Move in front of the silver leaves.

Open element 109, copy and close the original.  Select the top layer and paste.  Resize 40%, sharpen and drop shadow.  Move to the bottom right of the frame.

Open your tube.  Select the layers you want to use.  Once happy with your choice go to Edit, copy special, copy merged and close the original.  Select the top layer and paste. Resize 80%, sharpen and drop shadow.  Move to the center of the frame.

Open element 154, copy and close the original.  Select the top layer and paste.  Resize 25%, mirror, sharpen and drop shadow.  Move to the bottom left of the tube.

Open element 7, copy and close the original.  Select the top layer and paste.  Resize 20%, sharpen and drop shadow.  Move to the bottom left by the petunias.

Open element 50, copy and close the original.  Select the top layer and paste.  Resize 30%, sharpen and drop shadow.  Move to the bottom left of the tube.

Open element 30, copy and close the original.  Select the top layer and paste.  Resize 25%, sharpen and drop shadow.  Move to the bottom of the white flower.

Add any other elements you like and make any adjustments to the layers.

Crop away any extra space.  Resize 650 on the longest side, all layers checked.

Add your copyright and name.

If you do not want to animated, hide the white layer and save as png.

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 Kiya Designs animation 58 psd file in psp.  Shift + D to duplicate it and close the original.  Do not save any changes as a psd file will merge into one layer.  We do not want this to happen.  You will notice that there is 16 layers in this animation and it does not have the group layer.  That is ok as we are going to learn how to do this so it matches the animation layers of the tube.

We need to group all the layers.  Starting from layer 16, hold down your control key and select each layer so the next one will be 15 then 14 etc.  Once all the layers are selected (the layers will be highlighted in blue) we need to group them.  All layers selected? 

Next we need to group these layers.  Go to Layers, New layer group.  Scroll all the way to the top and you will see Group 1 with all the layers as sub layers.  

Select group 1, copy and close the original.  Select your tag layer and paste.  When you paste grouped layers it will always go to the top.  Standing on group one select the link icon to link all the layer.  Click the arrow beside the new group to hide all the sub layers.

Drag this group down the layer pallet to a spot you like.  I dragged it down to just just above the frame layer.  Resize the Group 1 layer by 40% all layers not checked.  Select the group 1 layer if you have not already and move it up to the top of the frame.  
Ok we are now finished our tag and ready to animate.

Open Animation shop and go back to psp.

With only frame 1 of the animation visible, edit, copy special, copy merged.

Back to Animation shop.

Edit, paste as new animation or keyboard shortcut Ctrl+V.

**Back to psp.
Hide Frame 1 by clicking on the eyeball and unhide frame 2 by clicking on the eyeball of each animation. Edit, copy special, copy merged.

Back to Animation Shop.

We need to paste after current frame.  Go to edit, paste after current frame.  Keyboard shortcut  Shift+Ctrl+L**

Repeat from **to** until you have 16 frames in animation shop.  It will tell you on the bottom right corner how many frames you have.  

Select all, Ctrl+A on the keyboard.  Animation, Frame properties and change the animation speed to 15.

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.
