 Save your tag often. Nothing like working long and hard on a tag and PSP crashes.
♥♥♥
Open Mask0115 in PSP and minimize.
Open a new image 750 Width x 650 Height.
Copy and paste element 75 as a new layer and re-size by 65%.
Position in the center of tag and add drop shadow.
Repeat for element 55. Re-size by 80%. Position in front of skyline.
Repeat for element 13. Re-size by 50%. Position behind skyline on the right side.
Repeat for element 61. Position low on tag in front of all other elements.
Copy and paste your tube as a new layer. Re-size and add drop shadow.
Copy and paste element 69 and move it to the right side of tag.
Copy and paste element 45 and move it to the back of skyline.
Copy and paste element 43 and move it to the front but behind the ducks and to the right of tag.
Copy and paste element 42 and re-size by 70%. Move to right side of tag.
Add black palm tree as a new layer. Place it to the left on your tag.
C/P element 64 as a new layer and move to the lower right hand side  and behind the skyline layer.
Duplicate and merge down. Duplicate and mirror. Merge down.
C/P element 7 as a new layer and move to the right in front of beach sign.
Duplicate and mirror, re-size by 65% and move behind small boat.
C/P element 38 as a new layer, re-size by 65% and move to the right in front of beach sign.
C/P element 37 as a new layer, re-size by 48% and move to the top of tag and at center.
C/P element 34 as a new layer, re-size by 39% and move to the left side of tag and behind the small boat.
C/P element 18 as a new layer, re-size by 39% and move to the right side of tag and behind the bottle.
C/P element 41 as a new layer, and leave in center and should be the layer just above your tube.
C/P element 15 as a new layer, re-size by 45% and place on right side of tag.
C/P element 3 as a new layer, move the layer just above element 61 and using your rectangle selection tool, remove all netting on
the left side. So from the center of tag to the left should be selected and deleted. You should have the tall grey seaweed in front so it

hides the cut off edge.
Add drop shadow to all layers. Tweak your elements now, re-position if you need to.
Click on your crop tool and select snap crop rectangle to: Merged Opaque.
Open paper 4. C/P as new layer and move to the bottom.
Click on your crop tool and select snap crop rectangle to: Merged Opaque.
Apply mask of choice. I used one of my own, Mask0115.

Merge visible.
Add artist copyright and scrap kit credit.
Add your name.

Copy Merged and Paste as a new Animation in animation shop.
Hold your Ctrl key down and repeatedly hit letter L on your keyboard for a total of 10 frames.
You can watch the count on the lower right hand side of your screen in AS.
Open SimoneAni-Aquarium-Tutorial
Go to Edit, select all. Go to Animation and cull every 2.
Go to Edit, copy.

Activate your tag.
Go to Edit, select all.
Go to Edit, make sure Propagate Paste is selected.
Go to Edit, Paste, paste into selected frames.

Position on your tag and click into place. I placed near her hand.

Play and save.

To save:
Go to File, Save as, enter the name of your file and select the folder to save to.
Now click on Customize:
Under COLORS TAB:
Number of colors: 255 Colors
Create palette by: OPTIMIZED OCTREE
Reduce colors by: Error Diffusion
Under OPTIMIZATIONS TAB:
set a check mark beside the second, third and forth choices. UN-check the 1st and last.
Under PARTIAL TRANSPARENCY:
check Convert pixels less than 92
Yes, blend with this color: change to white #FFFFFF
Click OK. Click Next, next, next, next.
Play your animation.
At times your animation may or will come out terrible. Optimization in Animation Shop is not the greatest.
You can play around will your settings, especially under the Tab: Optimization. I change this setting at times from anywhere between 70 and 100.
Some people add a white background.  To add background, go to Animation: Animation Properties, select Opaque and change color

to white.
Hope you enjoyed this tutorial,
Hugs Simone
