This is quite a lengthy tutorial so make sure you have plenty of snacks and your partner and kids are in bed lol and as always, remember to save often!!!!
Place Plug-in into your Plug-in folder
Place Brush into your Psp Brush folder
Place Selections into your Psp Selections folder
Open a blank canvas 600 x 600 Transparent; don't worry about the size for now.
Flood fill with a dark colour from your tube, i chose: #b22709
Open your ©rystaltubed_731.psp tube and paste it as a new layer, leave it where it is in the centre if your canvas
NB Minimise this tube as we will be using it later in the tutorial
Go to Effects, Image Effects and seamless Tiling with these settings:
Selections, Load Selection and look for my BlazingDesire Selection, hit delete, leave as is
Choose a light colour from your tube, I used #fdd09a
Find a-dozi's-oldtext-06-Brush 001.PspBrush and add a few times to fill the selection, then deselect, this is what we should have now:
Lower the opacity of this layer to about 70
Put this canvas aside, we will be working with this again soon.
Open your ©rystaltubed_731.psp tube, the one we minimised earlier in the tutorial. Copy and paste onto your workspace, you can minimise this tube again.
Add a new layer, arrange, send to bottom
Choose two colours from your tube, a dark one for the foreground and a light colour for your background
Click on gradient and use these settings:
Adjust, Blur, Gaussian Blur with these settings:
Effects, Penta.Com, Color Dots with these settings:
Go back to your tube layer
Effects, Xero and Porcelain with these settings:
Merge, merge visible.
We need two copies of this, so copy and paste your copy onto your workspace and minimise for now.
With the canvas we have just been working on, Image, Add Borders and add a symmetrical border of 7.
With your magic wand at these settings:
Match Mode, RGB Value
Click inside your border to select it, flood fill this with your gradient.
Add the same Penta.com Color Dots settings as before
Effects, 3D Effects, Drop Shadow with these settings:
Edit, copy this image
Open the 600 x 600 image we were working with earlier and paste as a new layer.
Place your new image to the left of your background image like so:
Ok, you still with me? LOL
Add your signature in a contrasting colour and any copyright information you need on your tag now, including your own watermark:
These are the settings I used for my text.
Font size 100
Merge, merge visible.
Remember the smaller tag we did in step 19? We need to maximise this now
Add a new layer
Selections, select all
Open the MarieL2006fev_colored02t.pspimage copy and paste into selection
Selections, select none
Image, Resize with these settings:
..:: Now for the Animation::..
With your resized graphic, hide layer 2 like so:
Open Animation shop and paste as New Animation
Back to Psp
Hide layer 2 and and open Layer 3
Copy Merged, back to Animation Shop
Click on the image your pasted a minute ago, and right click, paste AFTER current frame.
Click on your first frame
Edit, Select all
Effects, Insert Image Transition Zoom, using these settings:
We now have 31 frames, but don’t worry about this just yet
Go back to Psp and copy the large background image we were working with earlier.
Back to Animation Shop and Paste as new animation
We need to have 31 copies of this, so hit Shift, Ctrl and L 30 times, WOW lol
To make things a little easier to work with and because the background is so large, zoom out until you are comfortable with what you are working with
Ok, down to business
With both sets of images, you need to click on your first frame and select all. I like to make sure my smaller graphic is on top so I can see what I am doing better :o)
Drag the first frame of your smaller graphic onto the right hand side of your larger graphic.
Place this in between the Image of the tube and the edge of your canvas and about half way down, or wherever you want your animation to be:
This may take a little while to load.
Click on your little Movie Icon at the top and just check your animation to make sure you are happy with your results.
Now we are going to resize the animation
Edit, select all
Animation, Cull animation
Add number 5
Back to Cull animation, but this time put 3
We have now reduced our frames from 31 to 17, good eh?!
Resize your image now to one of your liking, these are the settings I used:
Animation, frame properties, 20
File, save to a folder of your choice.
