Layers – Load/Save Mask – Load mask from disk
AoRK-Mask-293
Image Resize 80% and place where it looks best !
Right click on your group in the layers palette and Merge Group

If you would not like to animate –
Delete your white background layer – crop away any excess canvas – add your copyrights and save tag as PNG/JPG and then add name !

If you would like to animate then well let’s go !!
Everyone animates differently this is how I do it but if you have another way then go your own way heehee!!

In PSP
Highlight your bottom layer which should be your white background- View Current Only
Then check the mask , paper behind the frame , and both text layers to make them visible
Highlight your white background layer
Edit – Copy Special – Copy Merged

Open Animation Shop
Edit – Paste as New Animation
Using CTRL + L duplicate your frame until their is 25 of them ( just as the animation has 25 frames !)
Edit – Select All

Now –
Open Animation 1004 from RebelDezignsAnimation-Package-334
Edit- select all
Animation – Resize Animation – Pixel Size – Width : 375 Height : 422
There are two ways to do this you can either drag the Animation onto your tag or
Edit – copy
edit – propagate paste
Click back on your tag
Edit – Paste into selected frame
place where you would like

Back to PSP
Highlight your frame layer – View Current Only
Then check all your elements above also to make them visible
Edit – Copy Special – Copy Merged

Back to AS
edit paste into selected frame
View animation to see if you like and then save !
And you are finished !
