Drag the Arrow to mark your progress
1. Open up
my image provided into AS. You can right click and
copy it to your C drive.

3. Make your settings
the same as mine below:
Notice that you now have
2 frames. 1st one is blank and the 2nd one has your image in
4. Now on your color
pallet in AS click on the top color which in AS is your foreground
color. A color box will open. I used: #637193
5. Click on your arrow
tool to activate it and click on F:1 click on your paint can and
flood fill F1 with your color:
6. This is what my
frames look like now:
7. Click on your A tool
(Text tool) using your own font and wording place some wording on F1
like so: Note make sure to change your color on the color
Note for this step you
can open up PSP and make your text there. Add a drop shadow or
a bevel to it then take it into PSP and paste it into F1 and achieve
the same effect. I will show you a couple of examples towards
the bottom of the lesson.
8. Go to effects/select
9. Now that you have
your text on there go to Effects/Insert Image Transition.
10. Use the same
settings as I have below:

12. Were going to work
on frame properties and slow down some of the frames. So click
on your arrow in your tools to activate it and click on F1 only.
13. Notice its the only
frame highlighted blue. Now go to animation/frame properties
and change the display time to 130. Notice what I have boxed
off on F:1 D:10 That means Frame 1 display time 10.
Now notice the change
after we fix the frame properties: It shows you the Display time now
at 130. This is a great little way to watch how you set the speeds
of each frame.
14. Now take your mouse
and click on frame 18 F:18. Notice how only F:18 is
15. Again go to
animation/frame properties and increase the display time to 130.
