#7. Merge all layers visible... Open your animation shop.. and open the heart mng file that was in the zip..

the heart animation has 11 frames.. duplicate your animation from PSP till it has 11 frames.. Ctrl + A to select all the frames in each of the animations

Click , hold, drag Hold mouse button down.. on F: 1 of the heart animation.. over to where you want it on the new animation.. its F: 1 also.. don't let up on the

mouse button till you've placed the heart where you want it.. if you do it wrong.. just UN do on the two animations.. and start over.

I added another animation to the bottom of the one I just made.. it doesn't have  the same amount of frames but I still did it the same way.. the new

animation has 11 frames... the dotted animation has 20 something I still dragged F:1 of th mng animation over to F: 1 of the new animation..

Check your animation.. if all looks right.. Save as a new animation.. GIF.. You should be done now..
