Open a new transparent canvas 750 by 675 pixels and fill with white.

Paste element 10, resize 25% and rotate 20 degrees to the right, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Check your layers then crop your tag and add your copyright information and text.


Open Simone’s animation in Animation Shop.

In Paintshop, starting from the top, close off all your tag layers down to and including the tube and merge the remaining layers visible.  Copy the merged layer and paste it in Animation Shop as “A new animation”.  Simone’s animation has 24 frames so you  need to duplicate your tag layer until it also has 24 frames.  Activate the animation, go to Edit – Select all – Edit – Copy, click on the first frame of your merged layer and go to Edit – Select All, right click on this first frame, select“Paste into Selected Frame” and paste the animation onto your tag. 

Back in paintshop, close off the merged layer and open the top layers, right click, select “Copy Merged” and paste in Animation Shop as “A new animation”, duplicate until you again have 24 frames, select all these frames and copy them and paste them on your tag as you did before.

Check your animation and, if you are happy with it, run it through the Optimization Wizard and save as a gif.
