3d drop shadow on to the frame.. using these settings
V&H 3 opacity 57.. blur
8 black color
Click on the frame on the
layer palette and merge down on the white paper below it..
So that the frame and the

#12. Open the pinwheel.png....
copy and paste it over to working image
Open brad02.png resize 60%
paste it above the pinwheel layer so that it hides the bottom
I merged all the layers below
the brad and pinwheel.. so that it wouldn't be so confusing on
the layer palette..
Don't forget the copyright
info for your tube.
#13. Use your selection tool
set on free hand/ point to point.
#14. Click around the
pinwheel top... being extra careful at the stick area.
when you enclose the top of
the pinwheel.. copy and paste to a new layer. while its still
selected erase the original pinwheel TOP.
#15. Move the pasted
pinwheel top back into original position like below.
then duplicate the pinwheel top 2 times
so you end up with 3 pin
wheel top layers Look at my layer palette below.
#16.on the top one leave as
is.. on the next one down (middle one) Use your deformation
tool to turn it to the left
take care NOT to move it up
or down.. just turn on its axis. Do this to the bottom
You might have to view the
middle one to see how far it's turned, then hide it's
layer and turn the bottom pinwheel top.
Bottom line is each of the
pinwheel top are in 3 different positions as far as
turns go... they are all still in the same position
as far as placement up or
#17. all of the pinwheel tops
are showing in this pic below. this will give you an idea on
how much to turn each of them
After all 3 are positioned..
apply your 3D drop shadow on them and the stick.
I resized my whole image 85%
#18. Below shows all of
the pinwheel layers showing..
#19. You hide the
middle and bottom pinwheel tops have all the other layers
Right click on the image top
and Copy MERGED.
#20. Open your animation shop
and right click on it's desktop and paste as a new animation.
Back in PSP hide the top
pinwheel layer and have the middle one showing..
#21. Back in animation shop
you paste after current frame.. so this one more time...
hiding the middle pinwheel layer and un hiding
the bottom one.. COPY MERGED
AGAIN.. and in animation shop you paste behind current frame.
You should end up with a 3
framed animation.. yes?
Check your animation now.. does it move
To tell the truth mine didn't
look like it was really twirling so I closed my new animation
out and didn't save it
back in PSP I moved the
pinwheel layers a lil bit more tweaking their positions some
and went through the steps again..
I also on the two pinwheel
layers where I used the deformation tool they looked a lil bit
blurry so I sharpened them once..
the jewel in the center had
been blurry when you move something with the deformation
tool it almost always needs
to be sharpened once..
the last time it looked like
I wanted it to...
Save as a GIF when done..
Toodles till next time
