Below is what were working on
Here is the
Mask I used for this project.. you can use one of your own if
1. Open a new image 700 x 700 transparent
background.. you can crop later.
Open the paper you want to use the mask on...
usually they are 12" x 12"
so reduce size 20% then copy and paste it on
to your new image.
2. Apply your mask on the paper layer. Use
the settings below for the mask.
3. Right click on the top mask layer and
merge/ merge group.
4. Copy and paste your tube on to the new
image..., the bow, watermelon slice..
and one of the doodles.
Duplicate the doodle layer and move it as shown..
deformation tool to turn it in
the correct position.
5. Keep putting the doodles on the canvas as
shown and use the deformation
to turn them in correct position.
NOTE: when you use the deformation
tool on anything you have to SHARPEN once on
it.. or it will be blurry.
6. Apply a 3D drop shadow on your girl tube. Have
it check where it puts the
shadow on its own layer.. That way you can
erase part of the shadow.. that's in the transparent part of the
7. Showing what part of the tubes 3D shadow
8. If you use this bow in this set... its semi
transparent so will have to put the
3D shadow on its own layer.. and do the same..
erase part of the shadow
under the transparent part of the bow.. NOT
the edges.. so be careful how you erase.
9. Here is the 3D drop shadow setting for the
watermelon slice. Don't have to put the shadow on its own
layer this time.
10. Below shows all the elements positioned
on the canvas..
where you want them...also...RENAME your layers so
you wont get them mixed up.
11. Don't forget the copyright info for your
12. Merge/ visible every layer that's ABOVE the
then ADD a new layer.. drag to the very bottom of
the layer palette...
fill with white.... merge/ visible all the layers
BELOW the water melon slice..
keep the watermelon slice layer by itself.. on its
Make sure your on the watermelon slice
layer.. and right click on top of image and COPY.
13. Go to your Animation shop and right click on
its desktop and paste as new animation.
There is just one layer there.. go up to Effects/
insert Text Effect.
14. These are the settings I used...see where the
text is on the watermelon slice?
That's your goal is to get your text there.. you
can type what ever you want...
it all depends on the font you use.. the size of
the font... and what you type...
the more words you type.. the bigger the circle is
of the words.
So you will have to tweak your settings. Just have
your effects length and frames per second same as mine..
15. Once you have the circle of words where they
are suppose to be..
you should have 14 frames but one hasn't got any
text one it..
its usually the first frame.. delete this
frame.. so the animation won't jump.
16. Leave the watermelon slice open in Animation
shop... go back to PSP.
17. The layers you merged.. that are BELOW
the watermelon slick.. be sure
you're on that layer on the layer palette..
COPY go to Animation shop... right click on the desktop and PASTE as
a new animation.
18. Duplicate the mask N bkg frame... to
same amount of frames that the watermelon has..
it should be 13 frames.. so by
clicking the duplicate button 5 times will give you 17 frames..
you will have to delete 4 end frames
though.. so you will end up with 13 frames.
19. Select ALL frames of the watermelon slice
animation.. and ALL frames
of the bkg/ Mask animation... be
sure your on frame ONE of the watermelon
slice animation...click and
drag it over to frame ONE of the bkg /mask animation..
position it in the correct place BEFORE YOU let go
of the mouse button as your dragging it.. or you will have to UNDO
and do it again
20. Go back to PSP and be sure your on the top
layer that you merged that's
ABOVE the watermelon slice... that
should have the bow.. tube etc on it COPY....
LIKE YOU did the
bottom layers.. go to animation shop and right click on
and paste as new animation... duplicate that one frame.. till you
get 13 frames..
Select all the frames.. and click and DRAG the #ONE
frame *of the tube and bow etc*
over to your working
animation...position it just right.. before you let go of mouse..
UNDO... I didn't make a capture of this last set.. cause its same as
preceding step. Check your animation.. with
the preview button.. if it looks
then SAVE AS.. if something is wrong.. gotta start back at
square one lol.. HOPE NOT..
Toodles till next time...
