tutorials is purely coincidental and
the Arrow to mark your progress
1. In psp I want you to

shot below make your settings exactly like mine then click okay when
9. Notice that it
inserted 11 frames and frame 10 (f:10) and frame 11 (f:11) have
nothing on it. Its just the way animation inserts the frames. You
don't need the last frame so click on it to activate it and right

same effect but using different styles.
1. In animation shop
close your last project after you have saved it.
2. Go back to psp and
right click and copy your framed image.
3. Paste it as an
animation in your animation shop.
4. Now go back to your
framed image in psp and using your rectangle selection tool draw out
a rectangle over your main image but do not cover your frame.
Mine looks like this:
5. Add a new raster
Layer and Flood fill it with your background color like so:

10. Right click and copy
your framed words and go to animation.
11. Right click on Frame

animation/resize and resize like above.

so for the credit.
26. Now lets just take
minute to explore common mistakes. This is what happens when
you don't duplicate the first frame:
So this should be a
perfect example of what we have talked about before. That in
order to get a smooth animation your frames have to have something
in them different.
Send in part 1 for credit.
2. Send in part 2 for credit.
Using your framed image only from PSP take it to animation shop and
just clicking on insert image transition without duplicating the
frame save it and send it in. Don't forget to resize it.
