#10. Below is how I placed all the elements.  Time to put the copyright info for the tube on your image

I placed the copyright info on a layer by it's self so I could lower the opacity down where it

don't jump out at you but is clearly visible.

Don't forget your 3D drop shadows on all the elements.


#11. Once you get all the elements placed like you like...You can resize ALL layers...

I resized all my layers 83%  then on the tube layer I sharpened once.

When done.. right click on top of your image ( no need to merge all layers)

and choose COPY MERGED.

#12. Open your Animation shop now.

and on it's desktop right click and  'paste as a new animation'

Duplicate that one frame on your new animation... till you have 25 frames.

Open the animated MNG file that was in the supplies zip.

Notice it has 25 frames... I use it TWICE on my new animation.

Once at the bottom left and once on the bottom right.

#13. Do it like you do all other of my animations when you add an animation to an existing animation

#14. Click, hold mouse button down , drag F:1 of the dot animation over to F: 1 of your new working animation and let go

of mouse button when you've placed it where you want it to go.. After you drag the F: 1 of the dot animation over to your

new animation once.. the dot animation will be empty... just UN DO and it will be back to use it again.

go through the steps again.. on the bottom right.

Check your new animation.. if it looks good.. save as a GIF.


Toodles till next time friends.
