For animation of flames:

Zoom in real close to the candle, with your magic wand click the flame on the candle until you have ants going around it. Zoom back out. Go to Plug in: EyeCandy 4000 Fire using these settings: Direction: 90; Column Length: 739; Flame Width: 13.86; Side Taper: 33.49; Movement: 33; Check Denser Flames; Check Start from far side; Random Seed: 67; hit ok. Select none and save as png, naming it 'frame1',
'frame2, frame 3, and so on.......
Do this until you have as many frames as needed.
For example, the sparkles in my tag has 16 frames,
I wanted 2 extra,
so I made 18 frames w/the flames and saved each as a .png in PSP.

Go to Animation Shop
Animation Wizard,
following each step as shown. (pawprints is what is clicked)

(insert images)

when the next window pops up click 'finish'

View and Save animation!
