You can watch the count on the lower right hand side of your screen in AS.
Open SimoneAni320
Go to Edit, select all.
Go to Edit, copy.

Activate your tag.
Go to Edit, select all.

Position on your tag and click into place. I pasted this animation 3 times. Once in between the black crow and puppy on crate.

Again near tree and castle and then lower down by her buttocks.
Go back in PSP and activate the top layer. Copy and paste in AS as a new animation.
Go Edit and Copy.
Activate your tag.
Go to Edit, Paste, paste into selected frames.
Position as best as you can, the way it looked on your tag in PSP. Click into place.

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,
