Okay lets get started..
Open a new image 650x650 flood fill white..
Paste Frames as a new layer resize by 60%..
With your magic wand click inside the rectangle selections modify - expand by 7..With a paper of choice paste as a new layer..Selections invert - delete selections none..
Move this layer below the frame..
Now back on your frame layer with your magic wand click inside the top square..Selections modify - expand by 5.. Paste paper of choice selections invert - delete..Do not deselect..
Paste your tube as a new layer position it so part of the tube is ing the frame hit delete selections none..Add a drop shadow and rename it Tube 1..
Now do the same to the other 2 squares using different papers and different parts of your tube..Also rename them Tubes 2 & 3..
Making sure your Frames is the top layer..Highlight it and add EyeCandy - Glass with the following settings : 7.78 75 18 0 50 0 50 colour white..
Add a drop shadow..
Paste your tube as a new layer position it in front of the rectangle add a drop shadow..
Add any elements you wish..
Now to add your masks..Highlight your background layer add a new layer..Flood fill with a colour from your tube..Load mask - delete mask layer - merge group..
Repeat this step to add the 2nd mask..
With a font of choice add your name add a drop shadow..
Add the correct copyright..
Now To Animate:
Open animation shop...
Back in PSP merge layers visible then copy and paste in animationshop..
Back to PSP undo and x our Tube 2 & 3..Then merge visible..Copy back in animation paste after current frame..
Back to PSP undo and repeat for Tube layers 2 & 3..
You should have 5 frames..
Change frame properties on layers 1 & 5 to 50 and frames 2, 3, 4 to 20..
Save as a gif..
Then your done..
