Before we move on we will create our Animation Layers

Duplicate your "Larger Heart" Layer Twice ~ You will now have Three Larger Heart Layers in your Layer Palette

Close off (X Out) the Bottom Two Large Heart Layers ~ With the Top one still Selected ~ Adjust ~ Add/Remove Noise ~ Add Noise ~ Uniform and Monochrome Selected ~ Noise 16%

Repeat this step for the remaining Larger Heart Layers ~ Be sure to keep Uniform and
Monochrome Selected ~ Alter your Noise to 20% and 24% Accordingly

Apply a Drop Shadow to your Text if Desired ~ Add any Required Copyrights to your Tag

You can now choose to Stop here or Keep Going to add Your Animation!


Here I will assume you have a General Working Knowledge of both Paint Shop Pro and Animation Shop

Making sure you still have your lower two Larger Heart Layers closed off ~ Export your Tag as a .jpeg ~ Close off the Top Larger Heart Layer and Open the one Below ~ Export again as a .jpeg ~ Close the Middle Larger Heart Layer and Open the Bottom one ~ Export your Tag for the Last Time

This is the way I have found best for Myself Personally but do please Remember each Individual has their own way of doing things ~ This is Simply a Guide :)

Head to Animation Shop ~ Animation Wizard ~ Click Next through the Settings until you get to your Animation Looping and Speed ~ Make sure you check "Yes, Repeat the Animation Indefinitely" and set your Speed to 10

Locate and Add the three Images you Exported from Paint Shop Pro and Click through to Finish ~ File ~ Optimization Wizard and Again Click through to Finish ~ File ~ Save

Voila! Your Tag is Complete ~ Giggles
