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 crop your tag, add your copyright information and text and export on a transparent background as a png if you are not adding the animation.

 

ANIMATION:


 Open Kiyas animation in Animation Shop, note it has 25 frames and resize it 40%.

Back in psp, starting from the bottom and working up, close off all your layers up to and including the tree and merge the open layers visible, close the merged layer and open the bottom closed ones,  right click "copy merged" and paste in  Animation Shop as a new animation, duplicate it until you have 25 frames, the same as the animation.  Select all the animation frames and copy them, click on your tag,  again select all the frames then right click and paste the animation on your tag.  Now open the merged layer in PSP, copy it and paste in Animation Shop, duplicate it as before then select the frames, copy them, select the animated frames and paste the top layer.   Run your tag through the Animation Wizard and save as a png.
