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

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


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

Now to create our Animation Layers

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

Close off (X Out) the Bottom Two Text 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 Text Layers ~ Be sure to keep Uniform and Monochrome Selected ~ Alter your Noise to 20% and 24% Accordingly for each Layer

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

Your Tag is Now Complete ~ I Hope you have Enjoyed this Tutorial
