For animation: 

Bubbles:
 Make all layers of the tag visiable except for the swing and tube sitting on the swing.
 Copy merged layers and paste as new animation in animation shop. Hold Ctrl + shift+ l 
buttons and continue pasting until you have 60 frames. 

Open the bubbles in animation shop. Delete frame 2, the credit frame. 
Edit-select all-animation-cull animation with the following settings. 


 Select-all-copy. Go to the tag in animation, hit ctrl+a, then ctrl+e to paste into selected 
frame. When it comes up, arrange it so the little blue dot in the first frame is in the middle 
of the bubble wand, then right click. 

 Butterflies: 
Open butterflies hit ctrl+a, ctrl+x, go to the tag, ctrl+a, ctrl+e, arrange butterflies to
 liking, right click. 

Swing: 
go to paintshop pro, go to layers, view, invert. 
So only the swing and tube sitting on it is visible, copy. 
Go to animation shop, and paste as a new animation. 
Go to Insert Image Effect using the following settings:


 Go to frame 4, select it, holding down the ctrl button, select every frame after frame 4,
 hit the delete button on your keyboard, you should only have 3 frames left. 
(you don't want the last frame being so small, that is why we made it with
 10 and then deleted, if you make it with 3 frames, the last one would be to small.) 

Go to the 1st frame, with your move tool, very CAREFULLY, 
slide the swing to the top, do this for the 2nd and 3rd frames also. 
This will be your '1st set of swing animation' for later use.


Ctrl+a, Ctrl+c, ctrl+v, (select-all-copy-paste as new animation) 
Go to animation on your tool bar, reverse frames. 
Ctrl+a, Ctrl+c, go to the 1st set of swing animation, 
and paste after last frame. 
Ctrl+a, Ctrl+c, go to last frame, 
Ctrl+Shift+l, which will copy all 6 frames and paste them after the last frame. 
Keep hitting Ctrl+Shift+l until you have 30 frames, 
then hit Ctrl+a,Ctrl+c,
 go to last frame,Ctrl+Shift+l, which will give you 60 frames total! 
Hit Ctrl+a, Ctrl+c one more time!
 Go to the tag, Ctrl+a, Ctrl+e to paste into selected frame, 
once it shows up, arrange to fit just under the frame of the long rectangle. 
Go to animation, with all frames still selected, frame properties, and set to 25. 
View and Save animation!

Let's Rock this Tutorial!!

Open the template in PSP, using your shortcut keys on your keyboard (SHIFT+D) duplicate the template as a new image. Close the original.

Open paper several papers of choice. Minamize for later use.

Go to large circle layer, Open paper image3, go to Selections-All-Float-Defloat. Add new raster layer and paste into selection. Delete original layer.

Do this to all the smaller circles except circle 3 and to frame the background and frame.

For circle 3, open button 2, resize 134x139 pixels, copy and paste as a new layer and arrange to fit over circle 3.

Open butterflywireframe of choice, arrange above the large circle layer.

Add tube of choice, arrange and resize to fit to liking inside the frame. Go to Effects-PhotoEffects-Black and White film with setting to your liking. Go to your layer properties and set to overlay. Go to your frame background, go to Selections-All-Float-Defloat-Invert go to the tube layer and hit the delete key on your keyboard. Duplicate 3 times so you have 4 layers. Arrange one to the second circle at the top, go to that circle, go to Selections-All-Float-Defloat-Invert go to the tube layer and hit the delete key on your keyboard. Do this with another tube but placing it in the circle under the button layer. Leave the last two layers where they are, do not merge down, it will lighten it up, to me it just looks better.

Open the stat element, resize to 179x103 pixels, arrange to the bottom of the frame background layer.

Add wordart of choice, resize to likin, go to Selections--All-Float-Defloat-Modify-Expand by 3. Add a new raster layer, arrange below the wordart and flood fill with color of choice.

Add Stethascope resize to 92x178 pixels, arrange to the top of the wireframe, to make it look like a part of it is going throught the frame, with your eraser tool set to a small size setting, I used 4, carefully erase a very small portion of the stehascope.

Open IVdrip, resize to 143x423 pixels, arrange to the right of the image. Add tube of choice, and arrange above the IV drip. If using the same tube and you want her arm to 'wrap around' the drip, first you will add a dropshadow of choice, then duplice the tube and arrange one below the drip, go to the top tube and carefully erase a very small portion of the arm Go to the bottom tube and carefully erase most of the tube except the portion of the arm. this way the shadow isn't too much on the tube.

Add anyother elements of choice.

Go Selections-All-Float-Defloat. Add new raster layer, copy and paste paper 17 into selection. Select-None. Add a close up of the tube of choice, arrange in the middle of the image, go to Adjust-Hue and Saturations and have both set at 0.

Add full tube of choice, arrange just to the right of the larger tube. I cannot tell you how to make it look like she's in water, this is how the tube came.

Open the Beach stuff element and resize 175 x 101 and the cooler element and resize 175 x 136. Copy, paste as new layers and arrange one to the right and one to the left of the image.

Add name and copyright info.
(If you do not want to animate, add crab, beach ball and any other elements of choiceand save.)

Now for the animations!!

First we'll do the crab:
(We will go into Animation Shop in a bit, but first let's build up to it!)

Open the crab resize 88 x 60. Arrange to the far left of the image. Using either the numbers and abc's, save this as 1.jpg somewhere where you can find it later. Move the crab over just a little to the right, and save this as 2.jpg continue doing this untill you have 7 images.

Now for the Ball:
Open the ball and resize 88 x 88, now resize the canvas size to: 200 x 200. Arrange the ball almost to the bottom of the image. Go to Effects-Ulead Effects Gif-X 2.0. Using these settings: Vertical direction checked; Completion: 14; Volicity: 50; Compress: 50; Resistance: 50; Fit to background checked; Key frame control set at 1/15 frames. Save where you can find it later and press cancel. Close out ball element without saving any changes.

Now go to Animation Shop. Open Animation Wizard. Make sure that 'Same size as the first image frame' is checked. Click next. Check Transparent and click next. Make sure 'Centered in the frame' and 'With the canvas color' is checked. Click next. Make sure 'Yes, repeat the animation indefently' is checked and click next. Click on 'Add image' and find the banners you made, add each one 1-7 and then each one again but this time 7-1 and then 1 again, this should give you 15 frames. Click next. Once animation shop is finished building the animation click finish button.

Now, open the bouncing ball you created with Ulead Effects. Press Ctrl A on your keyboard then Ctrl x. Go to the Banner and press Ctrl A then Ctrl E, once the ball shows up, arrange to the right of the tube. The first ball in the first frame should be in middle of the tag between the tube and icechest. You may want to play around with this until you have the ball correctly placed to your liking.

View animation and save!!
