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!!

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 8, 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.  I used my pick tool to pull out the sides and top.

Open element 120, copy and close the original.  Select the mask layer and paste.  Resize 70%, sharpen and move about the center of the mask.

Open frame 2, copy and close the original.  Select the top layer and paste.  Resize 55% and sharpen.  Using the magic wand click in the center of the frame.  Selections, Modify, expand by 5.  Add a new raster layer and drag under the frame.  Open paper of choice.  I am using paper 20, copy and close the original.  Select the new raster layer, edit, paste into selections.  Select none and drop shadow the frame.

We are going to work under the frame/paper layer for now.

Open element 96, copy and close the original.  Select the mask layer and paste.  Resize 20% and sharpen.  Move to the far right of the heart frame.  Duplicate and mirror.  Might need to move it out slightly.  Merge down the two roses.  Duplicate this layer.  Image free rotate to the right by 40 degrees.  Move to the upper part of the heart frame.  I used my pick tool to pull in the top and bottom corner slightly so it would fit nicer.  Duplicate and mirror.  Merge the three rose layers together and drop shadow.

Open element 91, copy and close the original.  Select the mask layer and paste.  Resize 15%, sharpen and drop shadow.  I duplicated it 6x for a total of seven layers.  I move them as follow.  Top center of the frame.  On the left side of the frame I moved three to the right of each pink flower.  On the right side of the frame I moved three to the left of each pink flower.  Once happy with placement, merge these layers together.

Open element 103, copy and close the original.  Select the black flower layer and paste.  Resize 15%, sharpen and drop shadow.  I duplicated it 6x for a total of seven layers.  I move them as follow.  Top center one on each side of the black flower.  On the left side of the frame I moved two to the right of each black flower.  On the right side of the frame I moved two to the left of each black flower.  Once happy with placement, merge these layers together.

Open element 112, copy and close the original.  Select the white flower layer and paste.  Resize 40% and sharpen.  Move to the top right of the heart frame.  Duplicate and move to the top left. Duplicate this layer.  Image free rotate to the right by 90 degrees.  Move to the right side heart frame.  Duplicate again and mirror.  Merge the vine layers together and drop shadow.

Open element 83, copy and close the original.  Select the paper layer under the frame and paste.  Resize 50%, sharpen and drop shadow.  Move to about the center of the frame.  Select the paper layer, select all, float, defloat and invert.  Standing on the city layer, hit delete on your keyboard.  Select none.

We are now going to work above the frame.

Open element 3, copy and close the original.  Select the top layer and paste.  Resize 25%, sharpen, and drop shadow.  Move to the left side of the frame about midway.

Open element 110, copy and close the original.  Select the frame layer and paste.  Resize 40% and sharpen.  Move to the bottom left of the heart frame.  Image free rotate to the left by 25 degrees.  Duplicate and mirror.  Drop shadow each layer.

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 64.psd in psp.

There are 16 frame layers that we need to group.  

Holding down your Ctrl key, click on each frame layer starting from 16 and ending at 1.  Once all your layers are highlighted, go to layer, new group layer.  

With group1 highlighted, click on the chain link icon.  

Still on Group 1, go to edit 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 1 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 is between the city layer and paper layer.

Resize the animation by 60%, all layers not checked.  Move up so you see it above the city.

Next, select the paper layer, go to select all, float, defloat.  Select group 1 layer.  Go to Layers, new mask layer, Show selections.

In the layers pallet you will notice a new group layer Group - Group 1 with the mask layer under it then the Group 1 under that.  We want this :).  Standing on Group - Group 1 layer, click the link icon so it links the mask to the ani.  

Click on the little down arrow beside Group 1 to expand it.  We will need Group - Group 1 selected or highlighted when we start to copy and paste to animation shop.

Only frame 1 should be visible on both animations. If not, click on they eyeball next to each of the frame layers to hide them.

Go to Edit, copy special, copy merged.

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

****Back to psp.  

Hide frame 1 and unhide frame 2 on both animations.

Edit, copy special, copy merged.

Back to Animation shop.

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

Repeat from **** TO **** until you have 16 frames in Animation shop.  It will show you in the bottom right corner of AS.

Select all, Animation, frame properties and change the value to 20.

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.
