Hi here I am once again.. with another tutorial..
if it reminds you of anyone else's..
its purely coincidental.<----*
I had to look this word up* This tutorial is for those
that have a
working knowledge of PSP 9. Can be done in other versions...
I used the graphic art of Angie Monasterio.. you
can buy her tubes and receive your license at the
I had bought the tube when it was at CLIM...which
is no more. The scrap kit is my own.. you can download it from
I would give whomever credit if I knew who made
the mask. Put the mask into your docs/ mypspfiles/mask folder.
Mura's Filter Meister *Copies* is used in making
1. Open a new image 600 x 600. Open the background
paper you want to use..
if you use one of mine in the scrap set you
will have to resize the paper 21%...
Then drag the paper layer over
to your new image window. You should have
two layers on the layer
palette. the bottom layer and the paper layer..
RENAME your layers..
this will help you keep track of what is what.. on the bottom
rename to white bkg.. and FILL this layer using the fill
tool. Then resize the newly filled layer...77% it should look like
2. Go to Layers/ load-save masks/ load mask from
disk. Find the losa1 mask on the preview window drop down. Use the
settings below... click Load.
3. Once the mask is applied, go to the layer
palette. and merge/ merge group.. where the mask is just one
layer... now you have two.. the white bkg layer and the mask layer..
RENAME the layer to MASK.. RESIZE the mask layer to 67%
4. Copy and paste the Heart ribbon frame to your
new canvas.. also drag the mask layer shape.. and put it in the
center of the canvas...
5. Use the deform tool and turn the ribbon frame
6. Apply a 3D drop shadow.... using a coordinating
7. Copy and paste the tube to the new working
image.. make sure the tube is under the ribbon frame.. use your
magic wand and click on the INSIDE of the frame... as shown
below...go to selections/ invert then making sure your on the
TUBE layer.. hit delete on the keyboard.. that will cut off the
bottom part of the tube where its sticking out from under the frame.
8. Apply a 3D drop shadow.. same settings as
the frame got.
9. Now on the layer palette hide all layers but
the mask layer that you moved to the center of the image
the white bkg layer.... duplicate the mask layer 2 times.. so you
will have 3 layers of it..
10.Make sure the mask is in the center of the
canvas... use MuRa's Copies with these settings.. on the top copy of
the Mask layer on the layer palette.
11. On the next mask layer copy.. the only thing
you change is the top number on the right... change from 19 to a 21.
12. On the bottom original mask layer use MuRa's
again and change the top right number to 24.
13. Have your animation shop open. In PSP
have all the layers showing and not HIDE except two of the
layers..* you have 3* RIGHT click on the top of the canvas
window.. and choose COPY MERGED..
. click over to your animation shop
and right click on its desk top and paste as a new animation.
BACK to PSP hide the one layer of the mask layer that was showing..
and UNHIDE another one..
only have ONE mask layer un hid at a time.
Top of the window.. COPY MERGE BACK to animation shop..
click on the one you just pasted as new animation.. and choose paste
behind current frame..
BACK to PSP and
hide the MASK layer that's showing and UNHIDE the last mask
layer...you do understand..
ALL layers are
un hid... just 2 of the mask layers at a time or hid.???... OK COPY
MERGE again and back to
shop.. and right click on any of the two frames there.. and paste
behind current frame again.
You SHOULD have
3 frames in this new animation... there is a animation preview
button up at top right...
mouse over the buttons to find it.. click it and you will see what
your new animation will look like...
thing is ok.. then SAVE AS.. a GIF... you're DONE..
Hope I made this clear to you all.. and you
enjoyed this tutorial..
Till next one.
