Animated Bear Swing Tutorial

This tutorial was done using PSP 7

Let's get started :)

Open the Bear Swing image tube in PSP - Layer 1
Resize canvas to 400 x 550
Duplicate image - rename it layer 2
Close off layer 1
On layer 2 rotate image LEFT 30
Go to layer 1 and rotate RIGHT 30
Go back to layer 1 and with your mover tool, move layer 1, over layer 2,
so it looks something like this screenshot

Add a drop shadow to both layers, I used these settings:

Save your image as PSP, no background color.

Open up AS
Click on Animation Wizard, use these setting:
Same size as first image
next- opague, white
next- centered in the frame
and with the canvas color
next- yes, repeat animation for 50
next- add your psp bear swing image
next- Finish
You should now have two frames of your image on a white background in AS screen.

Still in AS:
Go to Edit / Propagate Paste and click it on.
Then again to Edit / Select All
Now go back to you PSP screen to make your name/text

Open a new transparent image 325 x 100
Choose your favorite font and colors
I am using Childrens Play
Colors: Stroke: Blue #000099
Fill: Yellow #FFF900
Text size 60
Vector - Antilias with a drop shadow the same as above.
Copy your text Image

Go back to AS and CTRL-V to paste your name/text image as new animation
Left click and hold on this image and drag
it into the first frame of your Bear Swing animation
holding the button down while you drag your name/text
where you want it to be... when satisfied release the button
It will paste your name/text on both frames in the same spot.

Go to Animation / Resize Animation
Resize to 50% - bicubic resample
Click OK

Click on View Animation
Go to File / Save As

Click Next all the way thru and finish.

That is it!!
Hope you enjoyed this one as much as I did :)
