***Unfortunately I have to have a background on the tag so that the animation doesnt destroy the tag, and distort it horribly. If anyone knows a way around this oh please do tell! 10 years in Paint Shop Pro and still dont know a way around this, which is why I hardly ever make animated tags unless they are forum tags!!! ***

This tutorial is for those that have a working knowledge of PSP. This tutorial was written by me on March 6, 2013 and any resemblance is purely coincidental. I use PSP 9, but any version should work. I do not allow my tutorials to be translated and please do not claim them as your own. If you would like to share the tutorial please send a link to my blog.  Thank you! 
Things Needed:
Tube/Image of choice: I am using tubes from the very talented Zindy Nielsen which you can buy from here store HERE  Please do not use her tubes without purchasing tubes and obtaining a license.

Let’s Begin:

1)      Open a new image 600 x 600 transparent – I will refer to this as our working image

2)      Open CBJ_IW_Frm1.png and resize by 50% and again by 75%

3)      Copy this frame and paste as a new layer on our working image

4)      Click inside the frame using your magic wand (make sure all crevices are selected as well)

5)      Selections- modify-expand by 2

6)      Open paper of your choice at this time and paste as a new layer on our working image

7)      I used CBJ_IrishWishesP4.jpg

8)      Open CBJ_IW_Leaves2.png and resize by 50% twice

9)      Paste as a new layer on our working image

10)   Place to the bottom right of our frame

11)   Duplicate this layer

12)   Image—Mirror

13)   Now place so that the two leaves images touch

14)   Merge—Merge Down

15)   Add a nice drop shadow to your leaves  (I used 2,2,100,5,black)

36)   Once happy go to merge visible.

37)   Now add your text and copyrights at this time

38)   If you are happy with your tag at this time save it as a .jpg 

If you want to add animation to your tag please continue on:

Okay so the easiest way I know how to explain this might confuse some and if you need help please don’t hesitate to write to me and ask and I will gladly help!

39)   Open your animation in animation shop

40)   Also open up our tag in psp (the one you saved as a png)

41)   Okay so you need to look at your animation and see how many frames it has

42)   I used Simones animation #282 and it has 21 frames

43)   So at this time I am going to duplicate my tag until it also has 21 frames

44)   Once you have your tag layers set to 21 frames –edit—select all

45)   Repeat this with our animation frame

46)   Now go to edit—copy while you have your animation highlighted

47)   Now go to your tag in animation shop and make it the active in animation shop

48)   Edit—Paste into selection

49)   Now carefully place your animation where you want it to be on your tag (you might have to resize your animation to fit your tag)

50)   Once you place your animation within in your tag it will be placed within all your layers

51)   Now go to view—animation  if happy with your tag now you will want to save once again 

I would love to see your results! Also like I said if you have any questions please email me and I will get back to you as soon as possible!

My Disclosure

My tutorials are just that- Mine.In other words I really don't want them on other sites or translated. If you would like to share my tutorial then please do just that by sharing the link to my blog or a link straight to the tutorial. At the time I write the tutorial I use the artists website at the time as well as the kit designers link at the time and it would take quite some time to go back and edit all of my tutorials and posts to reflect all changes that happen. So if by chance you cant find something or a link I provided has gone bad please contact me and I will do my best to help! I write tutorials in hopes that others will use them as a guide and send me their results so I can also post others results to show people other samples other than my own. All tutorials are written by me and any resemblance is purely coincidental. I write my tutorials in PSP 9 but they should work with other versions as well. Not all tutorials are for beginners but all levels of creators are encouraged to try working on the following tutorials!!! Have fun... and be copyright safe!!!!
