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:

Open Kiya'as animation in Animation shop, select all the frames and go to Animation - mirror then resize the animation 40%.

Back on the tag, starting at the top, close down all your layers up to and including the angel face and merge visible, copy this merged layer, paste it in Animation Shop and duplicate it so it has 16 frames the same as Kiyas Animation, select all the animation frames again and copy them, click on the first frame of your tag, again select all the frames then right click, "paste into selected frame" and position the animation on the tag.  Back in Paint Shop, close off the merged layer you have and open the others, right click and "copy merged" then paste in Animation Shop, duplicate it as before, select all the frames, copy and paste on your animated tag.  When you are done, run your tag through the optimisation wizard and save as a gif.
