Ok, grab a cuppa, and a munchie, and let's go!!
Please remember to SAVE your work often, RENAME your layers, and if you feel you have really messed up.... Remember that UNDO is your bestest friend!!
C/P element 02 in center of canvas. After the two frames are on the canvas, you may have to nudge this over to the right a bit.
C/P element 04 in center of canvas
C/P element 03 in center of canvas
C/P element 86 Image>Mirror. Place to the upper left and slide under your frame layers in the layers palette.
C/P your tube to the center of canvas. Risize to your choice and place on top of the frame. Go to Adjust>Hue/Saturation>Vibrance pull the slider all the way over to 100. Do this one more time except slide the slider to 80.
C/P element 81, resize it a bit and place where the tubes hand should actually be.
C/P element 34 onto canvas. Rsize to your liking and plave to the right of the frame.
C/P element 83, resize an plave over the tree that you just placed. Coloriz by using the Change to Target Brush. I changed mine to purple. For a quick overview on how to use this brush, select the brush tool itself, then go to View>Palettes>Learning Center. It is really quick an easy to learn.
C/P element 12. Resize and place on the frame over to the left.
C/P element 22. Resize and place just near the unicorns feet. With your lasso tool. Draw a selection around your potion bottle. Use your Color Replacer Brush to change the color of the potion. Again, refer to the the learning center for easy instrusctions on how to use this tool. This is what we are animating. Fyi, so we will be revisiting this layer.
Ok. so take one last look at your tag. Add various drop shadows to your layers. Give your potion and your bow a slight glow.
Crop around your image. Resize if you would like.
Add your name and your © info.
New Raster layer. Flood fill with the color that you wouild like to have for your background.
Merge all layers visible except your bow and your potion. Duplicate your main background layer twice so that you have a totale of 3. Duplicate your potion twice, so that you have three layers of potion all together. Duplicate your bow twice, so that you have 3 layers of bows all together. Close off the top two layers of the potion Highlight the first layer and draw a selection around just the bottle part of the potion so that the cork dioesn't get effected. Choose Adjust>Add Remove Noise>Add Noise with these settings
Close off this layer. Open the second potion layer. Same settings for the noise EXCEPT change the noise percentage to 35. Close the layer.
Do the same for the third potion layer but change the noise percentage to 40.
Ok, so now you should have a total of 9 layers. Open the very bottom background layer. The very bottom potion layer and the very bottom bow layer. Merge visible Repeat with the rest of the layers. You should now only have three full layers.
Open Animation Shop.
In PSP Click on the bottom Layer to highlight it. Right click on the image window and and choose copy. In AS right click and in the workspace and choose Paste>As New Animation.
Back in PSP click on the middle layer to activate it. Right click on the image window. Copy
Back to AS right click on the image window>Paste> Paste AFTER current frame.
Follow the same steps for the last layer.
Now up in the tool bar in AS you will see a little icon that looks like a film strip. Click it and watch your animation go!! Now close the new animation window that popped up.
Go to File>Save Give your new animation a name and put it in the directory of your choice.
Then follow along with my settings.
, Next, Next, Finish.
