TO Animate keep going.
30.) let's get started....-on the layers below the CB layer rename them "Bottom" Now working on the top layer - with your Preset shape tool, and with colors to accent your tube, draw an arrow-the examples for all these should be in my files..
31.) DS and rename them R=Arrows  - convert to raster layer
32.) Now open CB and close - orginal-- open arrows on bottom
GO To Animation shop- copy as new rastrer layer and paste into AS.
Repeat this by opening the close area as well --TR
do this for a 3 frame tag-- when happy-change frame properties to 45-- view and when happy saves as 80%
thank you for looking at my finished tuts.

October

I am sorry I didn't get any tutorials done this month. Real life did a bang up job on this family.. My BF's Mom died, we had her funeral, which she was buried on the anniversary of our Dad's passing, even though it's been 4yr's. And then we had to pack up her 3 bedroom duplex apartment, and we only had from the 14th to the 31st to have all her stuff packed and gone. Even in Death there is no respect.
And in all this we had to leave town due to, an emergency for 4 days. Oh yeah, we also had to plan a Wedding of my BF to my brother, his 1st marriage.. took him 50 yr's , about time.. huh?
Ok so my next 2 tutorials are Halloween based, sorry- better late than never...
Can't wait till things get back to order.
hugs

Now we are going to MV layers -
A.) Close out - MD both WA and Lockers -rename lockers-
B.) Skate layer and Phone layer- Merge Down - Close Locker- phone and phone #
C.) You should now have 3 layers - EX 3
We are going to add the phone # in PSP and take it over to Animation shop - you can do this in Animation shop if you prefer, or do it the old fashion way .lol
D.) open text # - move it as close to the right side, you should have 940 (area code ) copy #,close this one and with freehand selection tool - point to point - add shift - feather-0 - smoothing - 0- anti alias checked
E.)  open duplicate - move the # a little - dup. close out the dup layer. use the freehand selection tool to erase the part not needed -  close this one
F.) Repeat Layer E - until you have the # going across the phone - I  had 14 frames in AS-- when your happy with your "tag" you can either open all layers and save it as "AS" and then bring it over to AS - and follow the instructions. I did mine the old fashion way, by opening each layer and Copy  Merged and paste in AS -
G.) when done Edit All frames - Animation properties - and opaque- and then go to Frame Properties - and change it to 30
View your animation, and when you get the way you wish.. save as GIF
Glad you checked out my Tutorial

Cappuccino Dream PTU

I wrote this Tutorial, any resemblance to others is purely a coincidence. Please do NOT add this to any Group, Website or Forum , without my permission.
This awesome Green and Brown colored kit is called 
" Cappuccino Dream " and is by Cari at Black Widow Creationz you can find it Here
The Tubes I am using are by PinUpToons and you can buy them Here
My Files Here
Tubes = 2-3 tubes of same artist, or 1 large or 1 full
Filters - Eye Candy 5 Inpact - glass
Drop Shadow = DS = 2,2,50,5 black
 Let's Begin
900 X 900
1.) EL. 1 - Copy & Paste = C&P -- As New Raster Layer = NRL-- place in center
2.) Paper 7- with Magic wand -- click in center of frame - selections - modify - expand 10 -- C&P paper as NRL - invert on frame and delete on paper - move paper below frame -- DS - both
3.) Frame 8 -Resize = R -75% --sharpen -- unsharp mask = USM-- C&P as NRL - place it above the other frame. (center) tag reference = TR
4.) With 1st tube -  - C&P as NRL - place it below the 2nd frame- and on top of paper -- TR -- Duplicate = Dup. -- Blur - Gaussian 6 = Blend Mode = BM = Multiply , Opacity = OP. =  90% - Merge Down = MD -- delete any part of tube going under the edge of frame -DS on tube
5.) With Lasso tool - go around the top frame -- EX. 1 -- select - modify -- expand 6 -
6.) on active frame - go to EC5 impact -- glass -- use these setting -- as seen in EX. 2-- TR
7.) Close out bottom layer and Merge visible = MV -- all layers and rename it frame -- move slightly to the top. TR.
8.) EL. 14 -- C&P as NRL - mirror and place on left side -- DS -- Dup. and flip -- put this on bottom layer.
9.) EL. 12 -R = 75% USM --- C&P as NRL - place on the bottom in front - DS --TR
10.) Tube #2--- C&P as NRL -place in front of coconuts-- Dup. - Gaussian blur 6 -- BM -  soft light - OP = 90% --MD--DS--TR
11.) EL 20 --- C&P as NRL - place on top left side -- move below frame -- DS & TR
12.) EL.27 - R = 60% & 80% --USM -- C&P as NRL -place on top right-- DS --TR -- Dup. - R = 80% = move down some - TR - Dup. & R = 80% again ( you can add more if you like, just dup and place them around.. you might even resize them as you go )
13.) EL. 26 -R = 50%-- USM -- C&P as NRL - place center bottom - move layer to right above bottom layer. DS & TR
14.) EL. 30 --R = 50% X 2 --USM -- C&P as NRL - place on left side in front of tube--Dup. -- R = 80% -- move next to coconut- I placed a few around -- TR.
15.) EL. 35 -- C&P as NRL -place right above the bottom layer.. DS & TR
16.) EL. 36 - - C&P as NRL -place this above the leaves -- DS & TR. -Dup. and move this right above the frame holder -- EX.3 & EX.4-- close your layers -- if you need to- now we are going to clean up the frame -- so it looks like it is sitting on the holder. TR
17.) EL. 7- R = 80% USM - C&P as NRL -place on bottom right- DS & TR
18.) EL. 29 - R = 50% X2 & 80%- USM - C&P as NRL -place in front of the 2nd tube-- Left bottom-DS -- (If you don't want to animate, do these following steps )
 19.) Close all Layers and Merge Visible -- R= 56% sharpen
20.) Paper of choice - I used PP3 -- add mask of choice -- delete mask -- ungroup layers -Crop-- opaque -504 X 504 -- Now open bottom layer and Merge Visible -- Add All Copy Right info, and Name then save as png.
If you want to animate do the following steps.
1.) To Animate-- go back to step # 18 -- with Lasso tool - go around the flame --ANI--EX.1 -6
2.) Dup. 3 X = 4 layers
3.) EC5- Nature - smoke- these settings-
small - steaming coffee
Basic - checked - wispy - smoke direction -99
Column Length- = 75
Puff size = 20.18
Expansion = 10
Waver = 37
Roughness = 60
Overall Opacity =  78
Random Seed = 1
Save
4.) on the rest of the layers -hit Random Seed - 1X for each layer
Once done select none, close off all layers except for #1. -
 Copy paste- paste into animation  shop as new raster layer - close original - continue to do this until you have all 4 layers done -- paste into animation shop - as NRL - when done check your frame settings and change them to = 30
now select all and go to animation properties- on frame 1 - edit - select all and go to - animation properties and add opaque - when happy save as Gif
Thank you for going this far. the Non-animated one is below
Hugs
