About Me

Hello and welcome to my blog! I am Vivienne, living in the UK and married with a son who now lives in Perth, Australia and a daughter who has given me two gorgeous grandsons! Paint Shop has been my hobby for more years than I can remember and I love making tags. I have always loved doing tutorials written by others and a couple of years ago started writing them myself. As well as tag tutorials, I also have a Tips and Tricks page where you will find tutorials on basic Paint Shop techniques. I hope you enjoy my blog and have fun with my tutorials. Please be sure also to check out the Tag Gallery and see some of the awesome results to the tutorials!

Check your layers and make any adjustments, then add your copyright information and text.



ANIMATION:

Starting at the top, close off all your layers down top and including the tube and merge visible, close off the merged layer, open the previously closed ones and again merge visble.

Open the animation in Animation Shop and note that it has 15 frames then go to Animation - Resize Animation and resize it 50%.  Copy the bottom merged layer of your tag and paste it in Animation Shop then duplicate it so you  have 15 frames the same as the animation.   Select all the animation frames and copy them, select all the tag frames, right click and paste the animation onto the tag.  Now copy the top merged tag layer and paste it in Animation Shop, duplicate it 15 times, copy all the frames and paste on top of your base tag and animation frames as before.  Select all the frames again and go to Animation – Frame Properties and change the display time to 15.

Run your tag through the optimization wizard and save as gif.
