Save your tag often. Nothing like working long and hard on a tag and PSP crashes.
♥♥♥
Open a new image 700 x 700, transparent background.
Go to Selections, select all.
Open Paper 12 and copy.
On your new image, right click on top border and select Paste INTO selection.
De-select.

Close original paper to save for later.
Open your mask of choice and apply or use the one I made Mask0145.
Merge group.

Save this file now in case of crash or loss of power. This happened to me earlier today and I've had to redo the whole tag. Sad story.

Copy and paste element 65 as a new layer and re-size by 40%. Duplicate layer and mirror. Merge them together.
Save your tag.

Copy and paste element 82 as a new layer and re-size by 48%. Add drop shadow.

C/P element 5 as a new layer and re-size by 80%. This should be your top layer now.
Save your tag.

C/P element 71 as a new layer and re-size by 25%. Move this "Boom" to the upper left hand side of tag. Add drop shadow.
At this time, copy and paste your tube of choice as a new layer. I re-sized mine by 75%. Add drop shadow.

C/P element 38 as a new layer and move to right upper hand side of tag.

C/P element 133 as a new layer and re-size by 75%. Drag this layer down in the palette until it's just above the big WOW word/element. Position to the left of your character/tube. Add drop shadow.

C/P element 132 as a new layer, mirror and re-size by 70%. Position behind your tube. Add drop shadow.
C/P element 109 as a new layer and re-size by 60%. Move to lower right hand side and add drop shadow. Save tag.

C/P element 66 as a new layer and re-size by 31%. Mirror and move behind your tube on her right side. Duplicate and mirror. Make sure this layer in behind your car. Add drop shadow to each.
C/P element 78 as a new layer and re-size by 16%. Move to left hand side and add drop shadow.

Make sure all your layers have a drop shadow. Add your artist copyright and license number. Place where it will be

visible. Merge this layer down on your tube layer.
Hide your tube, X out the layer.
Activate your Mask layer and right click Merge all visible.
Un hide your tube.

Now to animate.
Making sure your merged layer is selected,
Go to Selections, select all.
Go to Edit and copy merged. 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 14 frames.
You can watch the count on the lower right hand side of your screen in AS.
Open SimoneAni-Kaplow!-01
Go to Edit, select all.
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 mine about 3/4 of the way up the tag, so head level in reference to your tube position.

Go back to PSP now and highlight (activate) your tube layer and copy.
Paste as a NEW animation in AS.
Go to Edit, copy.

Activate your tag.
Go to Edit, Paste, paste into selected frames.

I also added SimoneAni-Kaplow!-04 to the center of my tube's chest area.
Play and save.
Don't forget to add your name.

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,
