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!

ANIMATION:



Starting at the top, close off all your layers down to below the gates and merge visible, close off this merged layer, open the previously closed ones and again merge visible.

Open Kiyas animation in Animation Shop and resize it 60%, you will see it has 16 frames. 

Copy your bottom merged layer and paste it in Animation Shop, duplicate it so it has 16 frames the same as the animation, copy all the animation frames and paste them on your merged layer, copy the top merged layer of your tag and again paste in Animation Shop, duplicate as before and paste on your animated tag. 

Run your tag through the Animation Wizard and save as a gif.
