In the Woods (Animated) Tut


To do this tutorial you must have some knowledge of PSP and Animation Shop.

This Tag was made using PSPX2 and Animation Shop. This tutorial is also copyrighted by Young at Heart Designs.
Im using the Beautiful work of Pinup Toons. If you wish to use swork you must have a license to use his work before using his tubes.
To purchase his tubes and receive a license go to HERE.
The awesome kit I used is called "In the Woods" by Athena Designs and it can be found HERE.

Templated #15 by Scrapity Srap Tutorials and can be found HERE.
Mask and Wordart: HERE
(If this is your mask please let me know so I can give proper credit)
Font: Giddyup Std
Plug-in: Eye Candy 4000->HSB Noise

I used shadow settings V3,H2, O50, B5, Color Black on ALL elements, layers, text and the tube except for the mask layer.
I also sharpened every element and tube I had to resize to get the quality like the original size.

1 Open template and hit Shift+D to duplicate it.
2 Delete original template.
3 Delete copyrights and delete the layers that had the 4 squares.
4 Click on Raster 2. Open, copy and paste as a new layer a paper of choice.
I used: Athena_ITW_Paper10-TS (Resize the paper to the size of the canvas)
5 Now click on Raster 2 again and go to Selections->Select All->Float->Defloat.
6 click on your paper layer and go to Selections->Invert and then hit delete on your keyboard.
7 Now go to Selections->Select None and delete the original raster layer.
8 Now repeat the Steps #: 4-7 for all the other layers except raster 5 and copy of raster 5.
I used papers: Athena_ITW_Paper8_TS

9 Now open the mask and minimize it.
10 Open, copy and paste another choice of paper and resize to canvas size.
I used Athena_ITW_Paper1_TS
11 Go to Layers->New Mask Layer->From Image
12 In the drop down window for Source Window select jill-mask29
Make sure Source luminance is checked and hit ok.
13 Right click on the mask layer thumbnail and select Merge->Merge Group
14 Duplicate the mask layer and then select Merge->Merge Down
15 Open, copy and paste as a new layer the ATHENA_ITW_Frame2_TS and resize and position on under the big circle.
See my tag for reference.
16 Open, copy and paste as new layers any elements of choice.
Resize and position where desired.
17 Open, copy and paste as a new layer the wordart. Position where desired.
18 Get your text tool and choice of font. Type out your choice of wording.
I used the colors: foreground- #ffffff
background- #70593d
19 Add your copyrights.
20 If you are not doing the animation, save as.

If you are doing the animation, follow these steps:

21 Click on your mask layer and duplicate it twice giving you a total of 3.
22 Rename each to something easy such as mask1, mask2 and mask3.
23 Click on your mask1 layer and go to Effects->Plug-ins->Eye Candy 4000->HSB Noise
24 Now apply these settings:

Saturation Variation: 30
Brightness Variation: 40
Opacity Variation: 0
Lump Width: 42.00
Lump Height: 42.00
Pattern: Smooth Lumps
Seamless Tile: Checked

Then click Random Seed once and hit ok.
25 Now repeat these steps for mask2 and mask3.
26 once you are done doing the plug-in hide mask2 and mask3.
27 Copy merge and go to AS and paste as a new animation.
28 Back in PSP and hide mask1 and unhide mask2 and copy merge.
29 Go to AS and right click on your frame and select paste after current frame.
30 Back in PSP and hide mask2 and unhide mask3 and copy merge.
